Granted, the Cubs are really raking in the players right now, and I'll give them credit for trying to make their team competitive. But, KW really needs to "kick it up a notch" and get some players on the south side. There's plenty of people he can acquire even though his budget is tight. We need pitching, infield and outfield help.

KW...you need to get off your kiester (SP?) and get some players, doggonnit!!!!!!

HTSN:

Kenny can't do squat without permission and that permission won't come until he can reduce payroll by trading some "high" (in Sox terms) salaried guys.

That's why he's already spin doctoring the situation based on his direct comments last week (i.e. I'm comfortable with this team as it stands right now...) I mean what else can he say?

I think even the Sox have a few options this offseason. Pitching is obviously their biggest weakness. Here is a list of guys they could bring in at around $3-500k, or even for a minor league contract.

Robert Person , RHP - He could come with a very low price tag, and might even agree to a minor league contract if the Sox will give him a chance to earn a rotation spot. Rotoworld.com reported that he has been talking to Colorado. It shouldn't take much to convince him that pitching at sea level would be a better option. 2003 Salary: $300k

Mike Lincoln, RHP - Did not perform well in the closers role last season for Pittsburgh, but he had 2 solid seasons in relief in 2001 & 2002. Could be a nice cheap addition to the bullpen. 2002 Salary: $300k

Carl Sadler, LHP - Non-tendered by Cleveland, even though he had good numbers at AAA and posted a 1.86 ERA in 9.2 IP with the tribe. He even caught a purse snatcher last April with Brian Anderson. The pen is crowded with lefties and Cleveland is said to be set to offer him a minor league contract, but he could be a good pickup. 2002 Salary: $300k

Alfredo Gonzalez - Non-tendered by LA, but thought to be a good prospect, probably would spend next season at AAA, has some arm troubles also. Did not pitch in the majors last season.
