From the Sun-Times:
"If Konerko returns, the Sox are expected to press harder to swing a deal with the Marlins to land center fielder Juan Pierre, giving them a speedy No. 2 hitter. If Pierre can't be had, the Sox seem content to install promising rookie Brian Anderson in center."
Why would the Sox be more interested in Pierre if they sign Konerko? I would think it would be the opposite. Pierre won't be cheap and Konerko will be expensive; it seems like Anderson/Konerko would be more likely for the Sox budget.
And, in any case, I really would rather not trade for Pierre.
