Wonder if they'd take Rick White. In all seriousness, IMO he'd be a good gamble given the Reds situation. I see basically no way of this happening though. Anyone know what he makes this season?Scott Williamson: Could be Traded

Update: Other teams are interested in Williamson and have been in trade talks with general manager Jim Hendry all winter, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Recommendation: Some scouts (not surprisingly given his stuff and his history when healthy) view Williamson as a possible eighth- or ninth-inning reliever. With the Cubs signing Bob Howry and Scott Eyre to handle setup roles for closer Ryan Dempster, Williamson's role in Chicago is undetermined, so he could be moved. Why the Cubs gave all that money to two lesser pitchers when they had Williamson in the fold is another issue, but at this point, Williamson could be traded to a team that needs a setup guy and could see some saves eventually if that team's closer were to falter. At this point, it's just speculation, but he's a nice end-game gamble in NL leagues.
