So we bounced it to new Sox beat writer Mark Gonzales for comment, and here's his response:

"The Sox are committed to Pierzynski, who has a lot to prove after getting beat up by his former Giants teammates and in the media. Pierzynski also has handled most of the catching duties in exhibition games involving the Sox's five projected starters.

"More important, free agents who sign with teams can't be dealt by those teams until June unless they receive the player's consent. There's a better chance of the Sox moving one of their backup catchers still in camp." - Tribune Blog, 3/30/05 (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/cs-blogcurrent,1,1990381.htmlstory?coll=cs-home-headlines)

Still waiting for the Ben Davis trade to jump from rumor to real.
