Default The Sox May Bring Another 2005 WS Hero Back.

According to Joe Cowely the giants are looking to unload Aaron Rowand, and the sox may be interested.

Doubtful...
It'd be cool but I do think it's a bit of a waste of money. As much as i'd love to watch Rowand play again, he's quite the pretty penny.
Don't think it's in the cards financially.

Sigh.

He's passable defensively - better than Swisher, Wise, Owens. Good hustle, but his instincts are more suited for LF.

Some years (2004, 2007) he's an excellent hitter for average. Other times he's just average.

He still runs the bases OK, but he's no longer a double-digit base-stealing threat.

If we were getting the 2004-2007 Rowand, then he'd be worth that money and I'd be excited about acquiring him.

But now, the Giants would need to eat a big chunk of that deal, plus take MacDougal.

His stats are definitely way better than any other outfield option... But what a waist of Pods. Oh well, I think I would rather have Rowand... but like Owens and Wise, Pods is faster and fits in the leadoff...

I actually really like Getz and Fields on top... Idk, I doubt it will happen, all good rumors never go the right way for the Sox.

I don't know how it would even be possible if KW doesn't have room to add salary.

If the Giants were willing to eat a large part of his contract, I say go for it. He is a far better option than anything else we have available currently. The White Sox need to do something aggresive to sure up the CF situation and fast.

Oh boy. I think WSI's server would crash if the Sox got him back.
