Default White Sox In Talks With Yankees About A Swisher-Robinson Cano Swap?

I Found this to be interesting. While I'm a big fan of Swish, I'd trade him in a package for Cano in a heartbeat.

Here's the link:

Scroll down past all the Cubs garbage to the 2nd paragraph. It says the Sox have been talking "in length" to the Yankees perhaps about Swisher and Cano. They're owed almost the same amount of money.

Well, it sounds like Van Dyck is just picking a name on the Yankees roster that may appeal to the Sox's needs, but as much as I like Swisher, I'd take Cano (or possibly, Melky Cabrera) faster than you can say "****ing Yankees."

I would welcome this. I know Cano has his faults, but he's shown a higher ceiling than Swisher has.

I also don't think PK or Thome will be moved, and I don't want Swish in CF again.

From rumors coming out of the GM meetings Melky Cabrera is available too. It could be him or Cano because the Sox have a need at CF and 2B.

How reliable/accurate is Dave Van Dyck? Does he bull**** or throw **** off the wall to see if it sticks like Couch does?

I don't really know of his reputation good or bad, but in this case it seems like this rumor is entirely started by himself. I'm sure when he heard the Yankees and Sox were interested in making a Nick Swisher deal, he looked over their roster and found the guys that the Sox would most likely want in return.

This does nothing for what we actually need! Cano doesn't get on base regularly and can't steal bases! I'm not sure how well he runs the bases but I'm sure he'll bring a little bit more speed to our team. However, I'm totally against this from happening.

We don't need speed. We need good hitters. I don't think Robinson is a very good hitter, but I think he's above average. That's more important than speed.

Melky and Cano suck balls....this article just seems like he's throwing **** against the wall and seeing what sticks.

You got a better solution for our gaping hole in CF?

Dude's 24 years old and still has a career line of .268/.329/.374 even after having a bad year in '08.

The Sox just need a ****ing centerfielder. We could do much, much worse.

They may just need a change of scenery and a fresh start somewhere else. New York has been a pretty ****ed up place to play lately.

Yes. Many better solutions. Would you trade Ryan Sweeney/Gio Gonzalez/DLS for Melky Cabrera?

None of those guys is ever going to be a great player IMO. Look at KW's track record when he trades prospects and big leaguers for that matter......what has any of them ever done in the past?

Now look at his record when he brings other teams players on board. KW knows what he's doing when he trades our guys away.

First off what the hell does any team want with Melky. He's regressed every season he's been in the majors and all he's really got is a decent glove. He's a switch hitting BA.

Cano is a mental midget...the guy pretty much sleep walked through 2008 after the Yankees handed him some money.

Forget them both...if Kenny is moving Swisher to the Yankees get some prospects that will be ready in a few years to fill in for Dye, Thome and PK.
