KW almost always gets the guys he's after even if it's a couple of years down the road.

Let's use this thread to make a list of guys he's been after the last few years and still hasn't gotten. That we we can use the list to speculate about the offseason.

THANKS to anyone who posts!!

Any offseason that involves us trading for Michael Young will be the worst in recent memory. Gah.

The list isn't of players we think he SHOULD go after it's a list of players that we know he has been after for a while. Heck, Griffey wasn't very good but we know KW was after him for years and eventually got him. AROD could even go on the list.

Blalock signed back with the Rangers as their DH, if I'm not mistaken.

No ****. His winning the gold glove this year proves what a joke the award really is. Hell, OC is twice the fielder Young is, and even he is just average.

Another player that KW always liked but hopefully he realizes that he CANNOT play 3B is Nomar Garciaparra. Don't do it Kenny...don't do it...

He also likes Cano and Melky, but that ship has already sailed since we traded Swisher to them for basically nothing. I swear, you'd figure we could have at least scored Ian Kennedy in that deal (whom I also don't like.)

Who knows? I really don't understand the point of this thread. It's not even guys that KW might actually like, it's guys that hacks like Joe Cowley have linked us to.

Ah yes, the 'ol "X player would fit well with the Sox" article/thread.

Quite a few are available this offseason, but I still doubt the Angels move Figgins: I'm especially looking at the #9 and #14 spot, but Kenny will have to clear more payroll to land both.

I just don't see us signing a free agent pitcher. When was the last time the White Sox signed a free agent starting pitcher? Was it Kevin Tapani? Doug Drabek? Gasp! Jaime Navarro?

All or most of our recent starting pitcher acquistions have been through our own guys in the minors and via trades.

I forgot about El Duque. Even he was considered a minor pickup. We haven't made a big splash in the FA starting pitching market in quite some time.

John Lannan? There was a rumor on July 31st about the Sox trading for him?

KW tried to pry Matt Kemp and/or Johnathan Broxton from the Dodgers in mid '07 for a JD centered package.

He'd be the perfect 4th starter. And given his low salary, we can even appease the Vazquez worshippers and keep him at 5.

I just don't see us signing a free agent pitcher.

If the White Sox deal Vazquez to add a 2B, 3B, CF or pitching depth, then I could see the Sox adding a free agent starter. I don't know who that might be but keep an eye on the market for Jon Garland. After last year, the demand for Garland could be light and the Sox could sign him at favorable terms.

If I understand the point of this thread, it makes me think more of guys KW really wanted but didn't get until 2 or 3 years later when they were past their prime if he got them at all. That makes me think of guys like....

Guys we got past their prime: Kenny Lofton, Sandy Alomar, Roberto Alomar, Jim Thome, Ken Griffey Jr., Carl Everett, Darin Erstad
Guys Kenny wanted but didn't get for a few years: Javy Vasquez, OC, Freddy Garcia
Guys Kenny has been after more recently, but no dice: Odalis Perez, Ervin Santana, Lannan, Carl Crawford, Torii Hunter

I have no insider knowledge, these are just guys who seem to always surface in rumors about KW's wish list the last 4 or 5 offseasons.
