Default Rumor: Konerko/Crain/Santiago 3-team trade?

This popped up on Chicago White Sox Memes on facebook this morning:

Quote:
According to our inside sources, the White Sox are currently in trade talks for a three team deal with the Angels and Diamondbacks that would send Paul Konerko to Arizona and Jessie Crain/Hector Santiago to LA. In return the Sox would get Paul Goldschmidt and Alberto Callaspio.
Nothing on the source other than "someone with ties to Yahoo sports", so take it with a grain of salt.

That's a pretty dumb rumor, as Goldschmidt is looking like the best 1B in the NL this year (so far).

Agreed, I don't see "Crain Wreck" having much trade value anyway.

Who dreams this crap up? Why would the Diamondbacks trade a productive, 25-year-old first baseman with a team-friendly contract for a half-season of Paul Konerko?

True, unless they are getting a good haul from LAA.

Unless they are getting Mike Trout, that makes no sense (the Angels are bereft of high end minor league talent). And if it were Trout, the Angels haul is then lacking.

Chalk this one up to a complete moron.

This is the same Diamondbacks team who last year shipped out one of the game's best young arms for a relatively light haul so who knows what AZ is up to?

That said, I doubt we're that lucky.

Forget the NL, you could make a strong argument for best 1B in all of baseball so far this season.

He's doing great as long as he comes into a game with the bases empty. But 5 of 9 of his inherited runners have scored this season. Small sample, yes (5 games with inherited runners) but he only let 5 inherited runners score all of last year.

Just don't bring him in with ducks on the pond.

Crain is FA after this year, Pauls worth is next to nothing, so the only chip is Santiago. Goldschmidt (who is knocking the cover off the ball) is locked up at reasonable numbers. Trades like this only happened in my days of trading baseball cards

Ehh ... three of those five inherited runners scored as the result of one bad pitch to Josh Willingham on April 21. That skews that statistic pretty severely.

Forwarded this along and asked some folks if they had heard anything or what they thought. Here are some responses for what that may be worth to you:

"The Konerko-Goldschmidt talks popped up two years ago, and the D-Backs said no. Why would they do this now? "

"I'm not 100 percent sure on this, but I think the Diamondbacks got rid of Callaspo about five years ago after he roughed up his wife."

This post is proof that bullpen setup man is the most under appreciated job in baseball. Nobody notices when you do your job but they remember those one or two times you didn't get the job done. Crain has been very solid this year and has been an excellent bridge to get to Reed. There are plenty of contending clubs that would love to have a guy like him in their bullpen. However, I don't see the D backs giving up Goldschmidt for him along with an aging Paulie.
