If Big Frank's injury is worse than first thought, I would love this acquisition and immediatley proclaim Kenny Williams as Executive of the Year! Nothing is even close to going down, the two teams are simply feeling each other out at this stage and nothing more.

Why do we need another 1st baseman? Especially one that bats what? .230?

Here's the blurb...
Dodgers, Chisox show interest in Delgado

King Carlos will become a free agent in the offseason.
Sportsnet's Marty York reports that two clubs -- he believes they're the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox -- have approached Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi about the possibility of acquiring Carlos Delgado before baseball's July 31 trade deadline.

York's information is that Ricciardi told the clubs that Delgado won't waive his no-trade clause, but the GM gave them permission to call the player's agent, David Sloane, to determine whether they can work out a deal on a new contract.

Delgado is in the final year of his contract with the Jays and Ricciardi wouldn't mind obtaining a player or two for the first baseman.I don't know who this Marty York character is but we actually may need Delgado if Maggs is really hurt. :(: Then we would put Crazy Carl in RF and Delgado would be our DH. I thought Delgado already said he wouldn't waive his no-trade clause though?

Sure we pick up all that salary. Than inevitably when we make it to the world series, we have 2 great bats sitting on the bench (Everett and delgado), during games that aren't at home. And at least 1 great batter on the bench when both frank and maggs are back.

We should get someone much more useful.

Like kendall.

This only makes sense if Maggs is out for a long time. Otherwise, we'd end up with Konerko at 3B, Everett at 2B and Delgado at 1B when both Frank and Maggs got back and healthy!Seriously, I can't see this happening (and I wouldn't want it to happen) unless Maggs is going to be out for a long time. Otherwise, I'd much rather use what money or prospects we might have for more pitching or a high OBP guy for the top of the lineup.

I like Carlos Delgado. I think he's an intelligent, well spoken great guy, and when he's healthy he is as good as anyone at the plate. BUT... I would really really really doubt the Sox would want to pick up what's left on his contract, even though he's only signed through this year. With Crazy Carl on board now, I doubt this "rumor" is even still valid, unless Maggs' injury is serious.

If Kenny is going to get another impact player, I would rather he do it at another position, like, ahem, catcher. (Although one cheaper option at catcher would be Ramon Hernandez, who will be off the DL on the 26th). Not to mention, the Dodgers are my second favorite team, and he would be a great fit out there with his friend Shawn Green.:D:

I don't see the logic in this one. He is batting in the low .200s this year and plus he brings a lot of baggage to this team with his recent protests of the war in Iraq. I don't want that to be the focus of the media and the team as we make a run for the playoffs.People, please leave the politics out of this thread or post in the existing thread about Delgado's political views in the Roadhouse. Thank you.

He had a slow start but had been tearing it up before he got injured. The question is, why would the Padres want to trade him? Last I checked, they are trying to make it to the playoffs as well.

This thread is closed since some people refuse to follow the rules and I'm tired of moving and merging posts.
