    The two that seem most plausible are something with Florida, more likely for Willis than Cabrera, and something with Chicago White Sox. If they were to do that McCarthy/Anderson for Schmidt trade, they want a CF back and are reported to be offering Garland or Vazquez, maybe Garcia for one. This could make sense for Griffey potentially.
    The White Sox would never do that deal for Schmidt. Anderson and McCarthy have been rumored to be moved the past two trade deadlines and it didn't happen, They're both going nowhere. Anderson is our current and future CF, since July here are his stats hes coming out of a DEEP slump (.333BA .364OBP with a .840OPS.) and McCarthy will have a spot in our Rotation next year(McCarthy led the minors in Ks in 2004, and was leading the IL in Ks in 2005 despite pitching 40-50 innings with Chicago). Kenny Williams has stated numerous times the FO has adopted the braves philosophy of bringing in young talent when its a viable option. BP did an article on Brian Anderson and how elite his glove is here
    the fact that Olney and Stark wrote that article is laughable as a Sox fan.

    The White Sox position of strength is our pitching both and the MLB and MILB level, with the likes of Haeger,Phillips,Broadway,Harrel,Liotta,Tracey,Vazq uez,Garland & Garcia. The Sox at this trade deadline will be looking for only one possibly two things. A 6th man out of the bullpen if Dustin Hermanson can't return to form after his rehad down at AAA, and prospects that will take over LF/Lead Off man role (Chris Denorfia ) by trading the likes of Cliff Politte/Augstin Montero/Boone Logan/Tim Redding or the previously mentioned pitching.

    The Sox SP thus far out side of Jose, have underachieved for the first half and there is no where to go but up, we have the second best record in all of baseball and are the defending world champs. I like our odds in the post season and the fact that the wild card will be coming out of the central this year.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    It's just a hunch, but I'd be surprised if the White Sox did anything with their starting rotation right now. They have an excellent rotation locked up long-term (Buehrle's due for free agency this year I think, but they can afford to keep him) at a pretty good price. There aren't any holes on their team gaping enough to get rid of any of those guys. And if one of them ever starts to fall apart, they have the great luxury of playing around with Brandon McCarthy -- but until then, they have the chance to fully develop him. I would be surprised if they made a major pitching move before the end of the season.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: Kearns on the block

    I just came from the ESPN board, and some dude there's reporting that a three-team trade involving Cincy, Florida, and Baltimore just went down that is sending Kearns to FL, Lopez and Hatteberg to Baltimore, and Tejada and Willis to Cincinnati. There seem to be some pretty big holes in it, though. Most glaringly, there's no source to corroborate the story. Something this big would have leaked by now. Hypothetically speaking, though, would you make this trade if you were Special K?

    Kearns, though I like his glove/arm in RF more than anyone in the OF, is expendable at this point. But it would have to net a pitcher who is in their early to mid 20s.

    In a second, but there is NO way this is true.

    I'd take Politte. I'm not too familiar with too many of the rest of them...can anyone do a rundown?

    That would be HUGE, but I can't see it going down. Especially the day of the All-Star game. No way someone would leak that the day of the AS Game. If any deal is going to be made, it will be made tomorrow.

    zzzz....no offense, some kid making something up with too much time on his hands as usual.

    Apparently he's also a Reds' fan, because it's one of the most ridiculous scenarios I've ever heard of.

    Krivsky seems to be pretty conservative with his player moves thus far.

    I am not expecting anything major from him.

    BTW Dunn and Homer are the LAST two players this franchise owns that I would think of trading, add Jay Bruce to that also.

    I would ditch Kearns and Griffey in a heartbeat.

    I don't believe it, either (the ESPN board rumor). For one thing, no prospects were mentioned, only big-namers. Something that big would have to include prospects, especially since FL would only be getting Kearns, while the other teams were getting at least two relatively well-knowns. If Krivsky was able to pull something like that off, he should be signed for life.

    I imagine they'll do something, but I don't think it will be that big, or if it is, it will probably involve more than just Kearns.

    I saw that too. He also posted it on ESPN's General MLB board and the ESPN Orioles board. Said prospects also involved.

    It's so far fetched I didn't think of posting here. Creative...but far fetched.

    If that was an actual trade, then yeah I would make it.
    But it sounds like its just a made up rumor.
