When CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman noted on June 27 that the Chicago White Sox were "open for business," the natural assumption was that general manager Rick Hahn was going to be aggressive.

Not so much.

To his credit, Hahn is not trading players for the sake of trading players. Rather, he is setting the bar quite high on his top trade chips so that the White Sox can maximize the return and remain competitive in 2014.

If major trades do not happen before the trade deadline, though, he is more than comfortable moving forward with the current group. Multiple sources, including MLB.com's Scott Merkin, quoted Hahn saying that "with any player under contract for future seasons, there certainly is no urgency to make a deal now."

Because of Hahn’s hard line, and the lack of pressure on him to make a move, the buzz regarding the Sox varies to such a degree that the only certainty is that no one really knows what in the world is going on.

Here is a recap of the latest White Sox trade banter in alphabetical order.

This post will be updated as new information is made available.
