We continue our series of looking at every MLB team and the players that could (or should) be trade targets for the Colorado Rockies today as we move on to the American League Central. The reigning AL Central Champion Chicago White Sox just made the postseason for back-to-back seasons for the first time in their entire franchise history.

Even with the sparse history of the Rockies (1993-present), the Rockies accomplished it before the White Sox did it and the White Sox have been around for nearly a century longer (1901-present). In fact, from 1920 through 2008, the White Sox got to the postseason as many times as the Rockies have in their entire history with five. However, the White Sox did win the World Series in 2005, breaking a drought that had lasted since 1917.

With this series, we have just been looking at some trade targets for the Colorado Rockies if they are buying. That implies that the other team is selling and, frankly, the White Sox are unlikely to be sellers for the vast majority of their players.

For the ones that they are rumored to be shopping on the market or could look to trade this offseason when the MLB lockout ends, the players are fringe players or the White Sox would be making a salary dump so, in general, the White Sox are not a great trade fit for the Rockies.

However, there are five players on the Chicago White Sox 40-man roster that the Colorado Rockies could (or should) look at as a trade target this offseason.
