Here we go again with guillen to Chicago rumors.

I think it would kind of be ironic that we hired a former shortstop named guillen and we had another guillen at short

Yep. Make the Guillen for Valentin deal. Then wait for Alex Cora to be non-tendered (you can probably see where I'm going with this by now) and you have a DP combo of Guillen and Cora. :smile:

Anyways, I haven't read everything, but based on what I saw I think I'm probably one of the few that would be in favor of a Carlos Guillen for Jose Valentin swap.

I've never really paid attention to the pending physical parts of trades, but now after this, I do.

I'd also be in favor of a guillen for Jose swap, guillen is cheaper, had a much better average, and is a pretty solid player, I'd definitely like to see guillen for jose straight up.

Living in Washington and seeing a lot of Peattle games on TV, we don't want Guillen. Jose is much better, trust me. No ex Mariners on this team please!! Gosh I hate the M's!!
