The SouthSideSox link mentions a bit more. But it also says you're right, that Texas is still in on him, and this is not a done deal right now.

Daryl Van Schouwen has a story posted with a quote from Hahn that says, "As you have heard from me before, we don't discuss rumors."

Jeff Passan tweeting that Rangers are out, still speculating the Sox got him.

I think the Rangers are going to go hard after David Price or Masahiro Tanaka in the offseason.
I think it's worth the risk if the Sox get him.

Well , Rosenthal just ran with the story on Fox before the bottom of the 7th, so this is close. Joe Buck sounded ecstatic for the Sox too.

Im not that trilled. I like ballplayers not just supposed hitters. If he supplemented a team that could run, catch, field, Id be ok with it. What I hear is that he is a DH, not even a 1st baseman. I got a feeling hes no Frank Thomas.

He's an MLB ready slugger who the Sox essentially got at the cheap, worth the gamble. What we got to lose?

What "ballplayers" are out there that you'd rather the Sox sign?

I like the signing, but how exactly is he "MLB proven?"

I'm seeing enough confirmations on this now that it appears we have a done deal. To the Clubhouse...

Frank Thomas is the best player in White Sox history. Literally everyone else who has ever played for this team, including everyone on the active roster in the 2005 playoffs, is no Frank Thomas.

Jose Abreu just needs to be a competent hitter with good power for this deal to work out.
