Chris DeLuca of the Chicago Sun-Times passes along a rumor so one-sided, I have a hard time believing it's validity. Still, I feel the need to pass it on.
Santana, who went 16-8 with a 4.28 ERA, has been dangled by the Angels in talks about acquiring offensive help. But they would part with their key trading chip to land Garcia, 30, who has done some of his best work at Angel Stadium, going 8-1 with a 2.99 ERA during his career.
Williams isn't exactly looking for starting pitching, but it would be hard to pass on Santana.
Bill Stoneman can't be that dumb.
Santana is under control for at least 4 more years. Garcia is a free agent in a year. Why would he give up "a package" that included Santana for only Garcia?
The White Sox should be the team that needs to sweeten the pot to make the deal happen.
Add another team to the list of possible trade partners. J.P. Riccardi says he intends to talk with the Sox about their glut of starters.
