    "The White Sox are looking at adding a "lower-end type" starting pitcher "at the right price," reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (Twitter link). If the club is able to acquire such a pitcher, it would give the Sox freedom to trade Gavin Floyd.

    Chicago's rotation currently lines up as Jake Peavy, Chris Sale, John Danks, Jose Quintana and Floyd, who had his $9.5MM option for 2013 picked up by the Sox last month. Floyd battled elbow injuries last season but still posted solid numbers (4.29 ERA, 2.29 K/BB ratio, 7.7 K/9) and averaged 195 innings pitched per year from 2008-2011.

    The 29-year-old right-hander is a free agent next winter and has been the subject of trade rumors for over a year. Even with just one year of control left, Floyd could draw a decent return for the Sox and, perhaps as importantly, his departure could open a bit of payroll room to make further moves during the season. One possible obstacle facing the Sox in their search for a cheaper pitcher, however, is that a starter looking to rebuild value may not want to go to hitter-friendly U.S. Cellular Field."

    Im never gonna start calling names like we had earlier on this thread. Everyone had valid points. Anyways, i do stand by my earlier statements that Floyd has good trade value. If this is true, who do u see the sox signing...

    Blanton, McCarthy, Marcum, Lowe (i hope not), Corriea, Pavano (hope not), Garcia, Young, Wof, Oswalt?

    I hope its McCarthy or Marcum. Interesting note - Peavy and Oswalt are good friends.

    McCarthy or Marcum would be nice additions. You would have to assume that means Gavin is gone then. And I don't care how close peavy and oswalt are, no way on him.

    It's worth $20 million just to get McCarthy's wife in the stands.

    Why didn't we make a push for Hanson?

    Well, there is your market for starting pitchers with baggage.

    Gonzalez: Humber claimed on waivers by Houston, my mistake
    Johnson also not tendered
    White Sox, Bears, Blackhawks, Spartans
    Go Green! Go White!

    If Pro is the opposite of Con, what is the opposite of Progress?

    Humber claimed on waivers by Astros.

    I'm honestly surprised by this move. I thought Humber wouid be given another chance to prove he is healthy.

    But I have faith in this organization when it comes to pitchers.

    On a side note: White Sox are shopping Floyd around, no surprise there.

    Some interesting non-tenders are Jair Jurjens, John Lannan, Mike Pelfrey and Brian Wilson.
