However, I don't see the D backs giving up Goldschmidt for him along with an aging Paulie.
If you're referring to the nickname, he had it for several years with the Twins before coming to the South Side. Is it fair to apply to him during his time here? Probably not. Mea culpa.

If you're referring to the setup man role, maybe sabermetrics don't appreciate it either, since his WAR, WPA, and BABIP were better in 2012 than this year (BABIP especially, .229 vs. .313 this season). Is he horrible? No. Is he a lights-out pitcher? No. Just an average middle reliever, and not especially young. We'll see if his ERA reverts to the mean this year.

What the hell is a "Chicago White Sox Memes" and why would it be any more or less useful than overhearing Kenny on his phone in the airport?

Default Three-way trade?

From a post from the "White Sox Meme" group on Facebook. Take this with a gigantic grain of salt. Still thought that WSI would like to know it, however.

"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."

Thoughts?

Probably should be written in pink. I would be more worried about losing Santiago at this point. If you can essentially swing Konerko for Goldschmidt, though, you win GM of the Year.

My first thought is why the heck would Arizona trade Goldschmidt for Konerko? He's 25, his OPS is currently 1.049 (leads the NL), and they just locked him up through 2018 with an option for '19. This is sillyness.

My thought is that since this is nothing but a rumor it should be posted in the rumor section. So I moved it there...

Goldy is a ginormous fan favorite down here, and as has been said, is signed to a great deal. He gets the biggest cheers at Chase every time I go (five times this season) and absolutely rakes NL West pitching. I believe this rumor about as far as I can throw a Jeep.

I think people on sports Facebook pages rival people in YouTube comments in terms of sheer stupidity.

I just realized, Crain allowed those other two inherited runners to score when Rios dropped a routine fly to right against Tampa Bay on April 28.

So, that statistic about Crain allowing inherited runners to score is really, really misleading.

Essentially, he's made one bad pitch all season in those situations. He was awesome with the bases loaded last night.
