Re: Brian Giles signs 3 year $30 Million deal
Now I could be wrong, but this smells like a linchpin signing to me. I'd have to think that a number of teams have been waiting to see what happened with Giles (including teams interested in signing him). Now that he and Konerko are signed, we might just see the trade market for available offensive players heating up.
