White Sox apparently were willing to trade him last month(and replace with McCarthy) but were looking for a package of 1. an established reliever and 2. a mid tier pitching prospect. These discussions are heating up again apprently (Reds have not been mentioned yet, however). He's owed 10M next year but for a pitcher like him that's not so bad.
I would offer Pelland and Cormier. We have enough LH relievers, and by acquiring a guy like Hawkins from the O's, our pen would be solidified. Garcia would put our team over the top, IMO. Besides, in September we could call up enough guys we'd be fine in the pen and Eddie G. should be back in time to help late in the month or in the playoffs. I would even offer Bray and Pelland if Cormier wasn't enough. We really need a pitcher like this... sending Chris M. out every 5 days won't cut it and Franklin and Mays, etc. probably can't cut it either.
