What do you all think about matching up with the White Sox for a trade of either Bourn or Pence. I would think that the White Sox would have to be interested in both as long as they can hang in the race over the next few weeks. Right now they have Juan Pierre starting in left and leading off. Needless to say Bourn could really help them out offensively and defensively. But they may actually like Rios in center since he doesn't seem to be too bad with the glove, even though he's on pace to suck again with the bat. You want it we got it. Don't need a center fielder, how about good defensive right fielder with some pop? A middle of the order of Konerko, Dunn, Quentin, and Pence would cause some damage.
I don't really have any idea what the likelihood of scoring any of their top prospects is, but I would be interested in Brent Morel and Dayan Viciedo...especially if he can play third at all. Morel is already their main third baseman so I doubt they'd let him go unless they think they can replace him with someone like Viciedo. Oh, and of course, pitching prospects would be fantastic, and it looks like they have some of those too.
Any of you know of good matches for our bottom-dwellers? No Phillies! Get creative.
Here's to hoping the White Sox go on run. Even if we don't trade with them, I don't want them flooding the market with veteran players for contenders. That's our gig!
Oh, and you should find this funny: I saw a Braves fan pining for no other than our Carlos Lee over on mlbtraderumors.
