My oh my would I like to have this guy. He's available too.
Anyone know of history of teams trading within their own division?
The Cubs recently did it with the Ramirez/Simon trade. I wonder if this would be out of the question.
The problem here is two fold. As much as KC wouldn't want to give us anything good, of course we wouldn't want McCarthy or whoever to comeback and kick our asses either.

I would definitely take Sweeney over Konerko - how would we pull off that switch-a-roo?

Sweeney for Konerko sounds good enough to me.

Who's going to play 1B when Sweeney's back goes out again?

I agree. Don't teams frequently like to trade a worse player at the same position for a better player?

That's why KC is in last place.

You took the words right out of my mouth. When healthy, Sweeney is a fantastic hitter but I wouldn't bank on his health status.

He has a list of teams that he would agree to be traded too in his contract and we are not one of them

If we acquire Sweeney, my question is if the the clubhouse jacuzzi big enough him along with Carl & Frank?

Well, in the Konerko threads, at least one person was suggesting Gload get the full-time job now, LOL...

Gload could handle it short-term, but other than that? I'd rather have Todd Helton personally, :D: .

Maybe if Paulie keeps up his Colorado numbers, the Rockies will be convinced he's the perfect high-altitude player and trade Helton and cash to the Sox for Paulie after Wednesday's game...

:gulp:

Didn't Sweeney hurt his wrist last night during the game? Sprain or something.....

that contract?? Come on!!

According to The Sporting News print edition the Royals would like to deal Sweeney. HOWEVER they want two top prospects PLUS they want the team that takes him to take the full load of his remaining deal (which is considerable...)

Granted this may be posturing, we'll see as the deadline approaches. TSN is speculating that if anyone grabs him they think it will be Baltimore.

You just accomplished mekon's mission by giving a response. I'd just ignore him.

It is easy to spend money that's not yours, isn't it?

Where's that thread that said we should basically aquire the 2004 National League All-Star team? :rolleyes:
