ESPN 1000 announced in the sportscenter update that the White Sox and Angels have agreed on 6 player deal.

Leaving the White Sox:
Paul Konerko
Joe Crede

Leaving the Angels:
Howie Kendrick
Ervin Santana
Nick Adenhart
Sean Rodriguez

Supposedly full details will come in a 3:35 pm cdt conference call.



My friend just emailed me this... I don't have a link nor can I find one but I wanted to throw it out here for you guys incase you heard anything too.


I HATE THIS TRADE BTW, Anything that includes Konerko is a horrible trade in my mind:angry:

If true, I think I like it. Adenhart is their top pitching prospect IIRC. Kendrick is an All-Star in the making. I don't know anything about Rodriguez. Santana is a project, but the upside is there.

Sox giving up a lot, but I like what they are getting in return.

Yea, I ran across similar rankings. So if this is true, it's a young, stud 2B. A guy who should be able to fill the #4 spot in the rotation (with potential to be better). A top prospect and a solid prospect. Looks good to me.

No because he is a goddamn ****ing leadoff hitter that, hey what do you know, we dont ****ing have. Trading PK means that Swisher isn't an outfielder but he is 1B. The cuban is a nice signing but is a wildcard. There better be something else lined up for a fricken centerfielder.:angry::angry::angry::angry: Quentin and Dye are corner OF's. Owens and Anderson have potential but are as big of question marks as Ramirez. I don't care about getting Adenhart or whatever his name is. Why? he is a prospect.

I definitely would love Kendrick, but we're not solving our leadoff problem, strengthening our bullpen, or our rotation. Weird, if true...

The exact same question struck me as well. Without Figgins, we have no leadoff hitter, unless Kenny miraculously decided J Owens is a starter now. (Assuming H. Ramirez starts in the minors) We are left with Quentin, Swisher, and Dye to play LF, CF, RF, and 1B. The Angels also have 2 3Bs. It would make more sense for both teams if Figgins were included.

I hate to see Paulie go but, truth is, this team is getting old with Dye-Konerko-Thome in the middle. If you can move Paulie at his most valuable, you acquire a mega-prospect in Howie Kendrick... THE deal-breaker in the M Cabrera talks.

Also, we NEED to move Crede and I like the idea of adding someone with Ervin Santana and Nick Adenhart's potential to the pitching mix.

A roster with Carlos Quentin, Chone Figgins, Josh Fields, and Howie Kendrick for the future is something VERY exciting.

Obviously Adenhart wouldn't be the main piece of this trade but it can't hurt bring in a top pitching prospect after just losing your top 2!

From everything I've seen/read/heard, Kendrick looks to be one of the best young 2nd baseman in the league. And if I remember correctly, that is another hole that needs to be filled. Richar is definitely not ready to step into that role full time, Kendrick is. Santana has had his ups and downs over the past couple seasons in the majors but so has Floyd and I'd take Santana's stuff over Floyd's any day.

To Angels
Konerko
Crede

To White Sox
Howie Kendrick
Ervin Santana
Nick Adenhart
Sean Rodriguez

Howie Kendrick is only 23 and put up great numbers when healthy last year. Santana is young and has the potential to be an above average 3d or 4th starter. Adenhart is only 20 and has good numbers for his age in the minors. Rodriguez is a prospect, too, and has had some good numbers in the past. All would be dirt cheap and under Sox control for a few years.

This has the sound of a Kenny deal and I like it!

It always amazes me how one somewhat speculative story, albeit from a solid reporter referring to a source, sets off a rumor mill firestorm.
