    Whitsox to shop Jon Garland?

    per mlbtraderumors.com

    "White Sox May Shop Jon Garland
    The White Sox have shopped Jon Garland around in the past. You may recall the failed deal with the Astros at the last Winter Meetings - the Sox were supposed to receive Jason Hirsh, Willy Taveras, and Taylor Buchholz. There was even a press conference scheduled for that one. Apparently the deal died when Kenny Williams demanded Hunter Pence as well.

    Many teams have had discussions with the White Sox regarding Garland since then. The Red Sox, Rockies, Braves, Yankees, Mariners, Dodgers, Mets, and Phillies all expressed interest. The Braves reportedly offered Edgar Renteria and a top pitching prospect (pre-Teixeira trade) and were denied.

    According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Garland is "without question that most likely starter to be moved" by Kenny Williams this winter. He says Williams will shoot for at least two relievers, one proven. Garland makes $12MM in 2008 before reaching free agency. Garland's got a 4.75 ERA this year; you have to wonder whether he'd be worth the price for an AL team. And even in the NL, is he that much better than Josh Towers right now?

    Off the cuff, here are some relievers I think the White Sox might pursue: Manny Corpas, Jonathan Broxton, Jeremy Accardo, Joaquin Benoit, Tony Pena, Jose Valverde, Brad Lidge, Chad Qualls, and Huston Street. What are your predictions for fair Garland trades that could actually happen this winter?"


    I think the Reds should target him in the off-season!

    The Reds would have to get a third team involved because they surely don't have any relievers the White Sox would want.

    He is expensive, not all that good, and very dependent of his defense.

    He is exactly the wrong kind of pitcher to target.

    White Sox Targeting Eckstein
    According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, shortstop David Eckstein is the #1 target of the White Sox this offseason. An Eckstein signing would then result in the team paying $300K to buy out Juan Uribe's $5MM option for '08.

    Eckstein signed a three-year, $10.25MM deal with the Cardinals after being non-tendered by the Angels in December of 2004. He'll be 33 heading into the '08 season, and injuries have been increasing over the years. Another three-year pact for $15-18MM would be fairly risky for the White Sox. Especially for a player whose value is tied so closely to his batting average.

    The Sox might be trying to assemble an all-grinder type team. They could conceivably have Eckstein, Darin Erstad, Jerry Owens, and Aaron Rowand in the lineup next year.
    If that's the case, offer them Freel for Garland.

    Does Stanton qualify as a "proven" reliever?

    actually he is quite proven - to be bad.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I don't think many really had high expectations for Milton.

    Several weeks before that Carl Pavano, Matt Clement, and host of others guys sign Free Agent deals for one hundred thousand basquillion and one dollars.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
