    Oswalt won't pitch for the White Sox

    SUNDAY: Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle says Oswalt "would invoke his no-trade clause if the White Sox attempted to acquire him." Ortiz also suggests that despite Scherrer's scouting mission, the White Sox and Astros are not in trade talks.

    White Sox is the plural form.

    We'll target Brandon Webb.

    Re: Oswalt won't pitch for the White Soxs

    nobody wants to play for Guillen or Kenny Williams. Plus it is pretty hard to keep the white trash from running on the field and going after umpires. Nobody wants to be a part of that.....

    You know, except for guys like Dye and Konerko that took less money to play there. Our new backup catcher that played for Guillen in Florida?

    "Oh, my god. Fun. Crazy and I love it," said Castro, when asked what it was like being with Guillen as part of the Marlins. "I had a feeling something was going to happen. I'm glad I'm here with Ozzie. I'm here to win."
    But whatever, Cubs fans. Keep talking ****.

    Astros/White Sox Jon Garland Confusion

    This guy was also spot on about that trade we made with the Astros involving Garland and Taveras.

    First of all, you do realize we traded for Peavy. The deal was done. He said no.

    The Oswalt discussion was broken by a guy that also said Jon Garland was a Houston Astro and Willy Taveras was a White Sox.

    Webb's been injured and has been rumored on the block. Josh Byrnes and Kenny Williams have made a number of trades and I guarantee you the Sox system has the chips to do it.

    I believe you. My question here regarding Oswalt: What is his contract situation? Is he up for a new one?

    I could see anybody using their no-trade clause as a negotiating tool for more money. That would seem like a smart way to use it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    When Peavy was initially approached, he said he would not go to Chicago. He talked with Linebrink and said he was 50/50, and was apparently willing to go if Chicago guaranteed his 22 million option as well as adding an opt out clause after every season.
    We can't do that.

    Roy Oswalt rhp
    5 years/$73M (2007-11), plus 2012 club option
    5 years/$73M (2007-11), plus 2012 club option
    signed extension with Houston 8/06
    07:$13M, 08:$13M, 09:$14M, 10:$15M, 11:$16M, 12:$16M club option ($2M buyout)
    Oswalt may opt out of 2012 option & take a reduced buyout
    full no-trade clause

    As far as the DBacks, neither Haren or Webb have NTC. I'd rather have Webb, and he'd be cheaper too. Dan Haren would likely require us to move Beckham, which we would not do.

    I just find it funny that the Sox can't get a free-agent pitcher who has the chance to turn them down. (Pretty sure Colon just needed some pizza money)

    It's because the Sox have a rule where they will not give more than a 3 year contract to a free agent pitcher.

    That and they typically aren't fans of giving up their first round pick (usually second half of the first round) for a Type A free agent.

    It's a combination of things.

    How many teams were offering Konerko a 4 year deal?

    The Sox originally wanted to go 4, but Baltimore offered 5/65. The Angels offered 5/60. Signed with the Sox 5/60.
