Angels are trading Guillen to the Expos for Juan Rivera and a prosptect. Guillen is a productive player but a bit of a head case. I still wouldn't mind having him on the Sox.

Washington is a movin' and a shakin' this off season, that's for sure [*feeling amplified tension over one more day of inaction from KW*].

It has just been reported that Jose Guillen has been dealt to the Washington club in exchamge for Juan Riveria and a prospect. The AP report did not disclose who the prospect was but he better than mediocre. For what amounts to a bag of balls, I'd welcome his production here. I think Ozzie would have set him straight.

Actually, it's a top SS prospect in Maicer Izturis...

Jose Guillen makes next to nothing.

2004 Salary - $2.2 million
2005 Salary - $3.5 million
2006 Salary - $4.0 million club option OR $300,000 buyout

I would gladly take Guillen's production at that ridiculously low salary, even with his clubhouse problems. Afterall, we did sign Albert Belle in the past and he wasn't exactly an angel either.

Bob"Productive"? He's wildly inconsistent, has only hit even respectably for half a season in Cincinnati and one season in Anaheim, and is allergic to bases on balls. In other words, he's yet another guy like half the White Sox roster. They do not need another swing-at-anything would-be slugger. Alex Escobar, if healthy, will post similar stats and make nothing.

I think Ozzie would have set him straight.I wouldn't say that it was a bag of balls. I like Juan Rivera and I think he started to come into his own a bit last year. I don't know that we'd have anything that Washington would want, but I would have gladly taken Rivera off their hands to either compete for a starting OF spot or back-up all 3 spots until a spot becomes available. He's a good young player. I'm not sure the Nationals should have even done this trade.
