Fields? Hell why not Thome, he would have the best bat at the position.

Is this a "wow, if we could only have ..." thread or a "I realistically think that ... " thread?

Either way, for me its Michael Young. :redneck

I voted "other." I think in a move that really wins over the fans, Kenny signs WSI's own Chips to play Short for the Good Guys next year.

Why the hell is Fields on here? Did I miss something? I'd at least throw A-Rod on there if we are going to get crazy about it.

Realisticly, I think it will be Uribe, but I sure hope it's Michael Young.

I honestly think that Young will be in a Sox uniform in 2007.

Wouldn't shock me, that's for sure. I'm about as big of a Michael Young fan and I'd absolutely love him on the Sox. That being said, I have 0 problem with Uribe being our starting ss next season if a deal can't be made to upgrade.

I usually played second.

Wish it were Young, but it's going to be Uribe I fear. The more players they lose, the more I think he'll stay. If they trade an IF, I think it WILL be Young, but that's a big if. There are talks of Bonderman for Texiera...that's just crazy talk compared to getting Garcia/Vazquez and Uribe for Young. Oh well...I think it'll really hinge on two things.

-If Padilla goes elsewhere, the chances of us getting Young increase greatly...but that is directly associated with...

-Us trading a pitcher away to, say, the Mets for relief help. Then we've really got nothing left to trade to TX.

Big Uribe fan. I think he will fine. Had a few slip ups this year in the field, but he is still a good player. Thumbs up. He come up with big RBI's, Sac fly's, big hits.

I voted for Josh Fields only because Paul Konerko wasn't one of the choices.:redneck

I voted for Young based on wishful thinking. I think it's possible, but I'd have to say Uribe is much more probable. But, I think it'll definitely be one of those two.

It all depends on what KW is going to get for the starting pitcher he's apparently going to trade. Such a trade will go to one of these 3 areas: LF, SS, or middle relief.

A-Rod.

I'd love to choke our way to having the best lineup in baseball bar none. Also choke our way to the best infield in baseball. P.s. choke choke not-clutch.

I think Kenny can pry away Vizquel for a minimal price and improve the position so that was my vote. Young would be awesome though.

Young will command too much. Uribe will be playing here once again. Hopefully he can return to his 2005 defensive form and not be slap-happy.

Nobody has mentioned Julio Lugo. He's a free agent with good defense and excellent speed who will hit .280+. He could hit second or leadoff and if he hits second Iguchi could move down in the order (7th?) like Ozzie wanted to do last year. Lugo gets my vote.

Mike Brown, if he's healthy, is the best SS in town

What is Young's contract? Isn't he four years older than Uribe? And how much would it cost to acquire him?

I like Uribe for his glove, his age, and his contract. Yes, he is hot and cold as a hitter. But I still like him. Seems to me that we are trying to plug a hole where there is no hole.

Isn't that what KW said on arriving in Naples, that he was not going to fix what is not broken.

Boston Globe has posted this.

Former Red Sox shortstop Alex Gonzalez has received a three-year $15 million deal from un undisclosed team.
Major league sources indicate that the team could be either the Chicago White Sox, who are looking for an alternative to Juan Uribe, or the Cincinnati Reds. The Red Sox did not make an offer, nor did the Toronto Blue Jays, who also covet Gonzalez.
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has always admired Gonzalez' glove and with a potnet lineup would be able to hide his offensive shortcomings.

Same thing being reported here:

http://www.southsidesox.com/story/2006/11/16/21402/072 (http://www.southsidesox.com/story/2006/11/16/21402/072)


The fact that the deal hasn't been made public is what has me believing it's the Sox who've signed him. It's in their best interest to keep the deal quiet while they try to unload Uribe through a trade.

I doubt that the mystery team is the Sox. I find it hard to believe that KW would ever give Alex Gonzalez a 3 year deal... maybe 2. I know Ozzie loves this guy, so we'll see.
