Possible White Sox deal in the works
Rumor out of Chicago is that Kenny Williams tried (unsuccessfully) to acquire Carlos Delgado or Gary Sheffield but is close to succeeding in landing Jim Thome.
Those are just the major players in the deal. Prospects may be involved. Apparently this is a direct result of the Mets overwhelming the Marlins to acquire Delgado.
Again, it's still just speculation, so bear that in mind, but it's the hot rumor flying around the airwaves in Philly.
Personally, I would see this as a steal fo Philadelphia should it go down.
No link yet.
EDIT: ESPN has confirmed.
