More A-Rod Rumors
By mvyb, 11:52

 
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the White Sox may be seeking to trade for Alex Rodriguez during the offseason. The Sox aren't sure who they're going to have at third base in '07. Their 2006 third baseman, Joe Crede is having surgery on his back this month. Crede is coming off of a very nice 30 HR, 94 RBI season- his stock is higher then ever.
 

With the offseason posturing and hustling ready to begin next week, that all-too-familiar scent is emanating again from the South Side. The New York Yankees are rumored to be interested in shopping Alex Rodriguez, and the Sox are being named in New York newspapers as one of the teams supposedly pursuing him.

''Every time you mention [Rodriguez's] name, it seems like our name also comes up,'' Guillen said in a phone interview. ''This kid is one of the best in the game. I don't know the exact direction we're going at this point because we're not sure about the [Joe] Crede situation.''

 
Now of course, Alex has that handy no-trade clause in his contract, allowing him to veto any possible trade the Yankees might want to include him in. On October 11th, Alex wrote this on his personal website:
 
"I am 100 percent committed to being a Yankee now and in the future. I don't want to play anywhere else. I never have (and never will) run away from the responsibility I have to this team."
 
From the side of logic, the issue of trading A-Rod anywhere seems ridiculous. He's averaged over 35 homers and 120 RBIs each year he's been with the Yankees. He was the '05 league MVP, and has been a starting-lineup All Star for three straight years. Why would the Yankees trade him? Or, perhaps a better question would be- who would we trade him for?
 
Jim Thome- a guy who hits just as many homers and drives in just as many runs as Alex, while playing no defense? Jermaine Dye- an All Star outfielder? ( Keep in mind that we have our '07 outfield set up.) These guys wouldn't fit... Crede, Podsednik, and Anderson are too inconsistent to come to the Yankees.
 
What about Chicago's pitching? Want to try Contreras, again? How about Vazquez? I really don't want to go there...
 
And don't dream about getting Garland- Guillen said in the Times article that he wants to rebuild the starting rotation. You don't do that by trading away your ace.
 
The only ChiSox player I'd like to see in pinstripes is Bobby Jenks ( as a 7th or 8th inning guy), but still, he doesn't come near the value of Alex Rodriguez.

In other news, Sal Fasano and Nick Green have become free agents. I guess this means that Wil Nieves may be seeing some time in the big leagues.
 
Heard the expression "everyone hates the umpire"? Well, this is why. Rogers should have been tossed immediately... Disgrace for baseball.
 
Ok, enough of me for now, what do you'all think? Should the Yankees trade Alex, and if so, for whom? Also, please share your thoughts on the Kenny Rogers' "foreign substance" incident, I want to know if you're all as outraged as I am.
