From the Suntimes:
Though Garland's last win as a starter came on Aug. 26, he lowered his ERA to 3.69 in his last appearance of the season. Has he shown enough to earn a spot in next season's rotation?

''With the way he has performed lately, it would have to be a situation where he'd really have to fall flat on his face to lose a job,'' Manuel said.

At this point the only players that are a lock for a position next year is Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordonez.

Durham is a lock. He may not be the guy we really want, but he isn't going anywhere.

Me either!

Back to the pitchers, we need one more left hander and one right hander.

Exacty. There are a whole bunch of locks on this team. I don't see KW dealing any of our big named players.(Lee, Durham, etc) But who Knows?

MY guess is that Foulke gets traded in the offseason. I hope I am not right but that is the way I see the chips falling.

I've thought about that too, rm. With the glut of pitchers coming back next year and Foulke's value so high right now, KW might be shopping him in the off season. I seriously doubt we'd see Foulkey in '03 since Sox management probably wouldn't bite at his contract demands.

For the "right" player, it might not be a bad move. The key word here is "right" player. I wouldn't mind seeing a package deal that would bring us a bonafide #1 starting pitcher to the staff. If we really want to make a move at the title next year, why chance it on an iffy David Wells? And sorry, but Buehrle isn't a #1 starter (yet) although his future looks bright.

Good question. Does anybody think Wells might have the stuff?
