I was listening to sports radio here in San Fran. The host was talking about the MLB rumors.

He said that the Sox should go after Soria instead of going for a starting pitcher or hitter. That way Hudson could developed into the rotation for next year and we can cut the games down to 5-6 innings because of our solid pen.

Anyone like this idea?

Insightful as usual Grebeck :rolleyes:

Anyway, back to the topic.

I would like another releif pitcher, but I feel the needs are stronger at the plate.

And do these people think KC would just hand off Soria for nothing? I beleive the dicussion would start with Hudson and others.


No thanks.

I've been saying this since Soria came into the league... "that kid is destined to be Mariano's replacement." Soria is completely awesome, but I don't think we have anywhere near the top prospects to get him from a division rival especially if we are bidding with the Yankees.

Wah wah wah. I'm stating a fact. It's a stupid idea. Anytime someone goes down or ****s up Rockabilly rolls in to suggest something he happened to hear on SF talk radio (sources need not be named, of course) that involves a top-of-the-line player and the White Sox. It's just the way he rolls.

I am not impressed with Soria. He is good, but he looks very hittable to me. I think he will flame out in 2 years. Just my thought.

The idea about getting another relief pitcher is not stupid.

But I agree about the constant rumors people bring up here that have no source.

We'll agree to that.


Besides, it's not like KC is going to give away Soria for a bag of balls.

Precisely. They will not and should not. If we're looking for relief help, it'll be patchwork guys -- not Joakim Soria.

He really doesn't get that many opportunities to shine, so I wouldn't be that surprised if you're right.

I believe you said the same **** about my Prince Fielder thread a few weeks back about NO sources and just yesterday Buster Olney and Rosenthal said the Sox are going hard after Fielder.

I said it was a idea that he had not that its going to ****ing happened.

Joakim Soria and Dan Hudson cannot co-exist on this team at the same time. If there existed a sports radio show host who would think it's possible for the Sox to acquire Soria without giving up Hudson, he's delusional. If he exists at all.

He said that the package would involved around Viciedo & Santos. That way KC could have their closer of the future.

Would love to see Soria on the Sox but now way KC trades him to a division rival. Soria has one of my favorite nicknames in baseball,

It looks like Houston might be trading Oswalt to the Cards, so trades within a division do happen

Is there anyone you don't want the Sox to go after?

Well, Viciedo's bat looks promising but his plate discipline and defenisve limitations hurt his value. He's a personal favourite of mine so I'm biased but I'd rather not see him get dealt. As for Santos, I doubt any team would consider him to be a centerpiece of any trade. Don't get me wrong, he's been fantastic for us but he's in no way guaranteed to be a good closer. The Royals will ask for Hudson if we want Soria because they still could use a lot more pitching depth in the farm.

That they do. Cliff Lee was just traded from the Mariners to the Rangers and that was an AL West inter-division trade.

So why would we do it? Santos is younger and cheaper and will be for some time. If Jenks scares you their still is Thornton and Putz on the staff. Why would Soria be a good idea. If we are going to give up our limited prospects lets fill a hole or two.

Craig Grebeck

Of course those trades happen. Impending free agents like Lee and guys in the twilight of their primes like Oswalt will get dealt within the division. Maybe Soria would too, if the Sox had the ammunition.

Guys like Shin Soo Choo? No, those guys are generally not traded within the division.

This isn't even a rumor. Like a lot of things in this forum, it's one Sox fan (I'm guessing it was the SF sportstalk host who is a Sox fan, as no one else seems to talk about the Sox, who suggested this) saying something he believes should happen. Yesterday while I was in my car, he was talking, in the context of the Giants getting a hitter from KC, about how the Royals get fleeced whenever they make a deal.

This Soria thing isn't coming from a baseball insider.

Bullpen help wouldn't hurt, though. I don't know that it would be considered the most pressing White Sox need. But it may be the bullpen that decides the division. Every contender could use some bullpen help, the White Sox less than the Twins and the Tigers. The Rays blew two saves in one game in an extra-inning loss to the Orioles this week.

Again, another hair-brained trade idea...

No thanks, why would the Royals give him up, especially to an interdivision rival?

Listening to sports radio would not be among the things I would do if I had the privilege of being in San Francisco.

Absolutely no reason to go after Soria. We have 3 or 4 guys that can close and do a fine job of it on the team as it is.

Go get Greinke somehow. Sheesh.
