Interesting read. Several scouts were asked to rank the available starting pitchers, including all the free agents and 3 of the Sox starters rumored to be available (Garcia, Vazquez and Buehrle). The results...

#1 was Schmidt
#2 was Zito
#3, #4 and #5 according to the scouts, are the Sox 3 starters.

There are a bunch of quotes on the Sox pitchers, but some of them are:

"The White Sox are going to have suitors because they have what others don't," one longtime scout said. "Plus, they have a general manager who is a little underrated and who is not afraid to do something."

"And remember, the [White Sox] pitchers have been on winning teams," the scout said. "There's a lot to be said for that."

"Buehrle just had an off year," one said. "He'll be back. He's a left-hander who knows how to throw strikes and those are tough to find."

This confirms what most of us thought, but it's still interesting to hear it from an outside source.

Interesting how the three Sox pitchers do not involve Garland.

Garland shouldn't be moved. It should be Vasquez or Garcia, period.

I don't think he's considered as available, whereas Garcia, Vazquez and Buehrle are.
