I know everyone's opinion of me on this board right now is not very good... while I do believe I have raised valid points with my most recent thread, the way I state things might be a bit too harsh... Anyways, I have ties in with 4 major media outlets in Chicago so I figured I'd let you all in on something I was told last night...

A good friend of mine does some producing at the Score and talked to Ozzie Guillen Jr. before he did his Latin baseball show last night... Ozzie Jr. travels with the team and knows a lot of inside info. He told my friend not to panic or jump off the ledge just yet and "Kenny will be making a big trade very soon!"

My buddy asked who the trade involves and Ozzie Jr. could not say, he also asked specifically when we can expect something and he didn't know but he said it should be pretty soon (days I would assume)... Just wanted to share...

Just to add to this, I have ALSO heard that SEVERAL MLB teams, some possibly in the same division as the Sox (or not) will be trading players you may or may not have heard of to other MLB teams (some of which also may be in the Sox' division) in the next two weeks.

Oh, and when it happens I WILL be around to say "I told ya so!!!!"

If this is true (I don't really know how you can say a big deal is going to go down soon...I mean, if it goes down, doesn't it usually go down pretty quickly?) than I hope it's not the Anderson-McCarthy for Schmidt trade...:puking:

Listen, I never said this was groundbreaking news.. he can't reveal player names due to MLB tampering rules... and he has no way of knowing EXACTLY when the trade would go down... all I wanted to do was let everyone know that it appears something big is in the works... we have been lead in 2 different directions the past week.. 1 being that a starter will be dealt for a package of middle relievers/centerfielder... another being that nothing big is going to happen, maybe some slight tinkering.... I feel as though Ozzie Jr. is a good source of knowing that something big might go down soon!

Exactly. Here's my latest rumor. There is a chance a trade will be made in the next 10-14 days. However, if nothing happens, it's because it fell through at the last minute. Book it.

I heard this trade may or may not include a star player and may or may not include one of our pitchers and also may or may not include a prospect. But the kicker is the owners may veto it at the last minute.

KW hates unfounded rumors. One time he read an unfounded rumor on a message board, went to the kids house, ate his computer, ****ted out gun, and shot the kid. Later, the trade that was once an unfounded rumor went through. Kenny, who enjoys irony, laughed at this.

"So you guys don't like me, but I swear it's just because I've said things in the wrong way. Once I make sure you understand, I'm certain you guys will love me."
Can I ask what your ties with the 4 major media outlets are? Your profile says your 22. Interning and getting Mark Giangrecko(sp?) his bagel and coffee in the morning hardly puts you in the mix.

We all know that KW is busting his butt right now to make a trade that will help this club.

But, we also know that he will not make a bad trade out of desperation to make a trade.

So, a big trade may not happen - no matter how much we or KW want it to.

Last year, very few trades happened. It's easier to make trades in the offseason.

I'm just curious where everyone thinks big trades might occur to improve the White Sox.

IMHO:

Untouchables (Can't upgrade): PK, Thome, Dye, Iguchi. Contreras, Jenks

Unlikely to be able to upgrade: Crede, Buehrle, AJ, Garland, Cotts, Thornton

Possible to Upgrade but unlikely without high costs: Garcia, Vazquez, Uribe, Cintron, Mackowiak, Pods, Riske

Rookies who are starting to play better: Anderson, Haeger

Trash (not likely to bring value): Gload, Tracey, Widger


I mean, where are we going to upgrade?

Tejada for Uribe? How much will that cost?
Andruw Jones for Anderson? Ditto.
Abreu for Pods? Not likely.

I guess the three things I think might be improvable are:

1) Back-up catcher.
2) Better middle relief.
3) Lead-off hitting. Chone Figgins plus relief pitching for Pods plus a starting pitcher?

I don't see a major deal for Widger in the works.

I was in NY this weekend staying at the Grand Hyatt where the team was at, the rumor that I heard that it will be Freddie Garcia that will be traded...and regardless of the NY papers were saying, it's not the Mets....someone came in with a better deal.
Freddie was in the Hotel bar with his agent and a couple family members Saturday night after being informed that a deal was imminent from WS managment. Another member of the Whitesox org told my buddy in the hotel that a deal will be made involving Freddie.

Take this how you may, I know it is an unfounded rumor, but thought I'd throw in what I know.

Alright, alright...I'll admit it. The Sox are planning on bringing me out of retirement to catch and provide middle relief. Since MLB banned me from using my left arm (to be fair to all other teams), I have been working on the right arm and received clearance for Budlight. I will now be playing for the Sox. The trade is for a truckload of beer for WSIers to enjoy when i hit 5 homers and provide middle relief in the same game.

Get a life people. The pitching will come around. If Freddy continues to suck then McCarthy will be in the rotation soon or he (Freddy) will be traded.

who steps into the rotation if vazquez and buerhle continue to suck?
