Condolences to Profundo:
Uribe had more to focus on this past week than simply his future with the White Sox. Uribe's mother, who was described as the true matriarch of the family and was very close with the White Sox shortstop, passed away somewhat suddenly last Friday after a battle with cancer.BTW, did you know that Tampa is looking for a shortstop? I guess Reid Brignac won't cut it!
"There are not a lot of shortstop jobs out there, with basically the top 26 teams having solid shortstops," Arburua [Juan's agent] said. "Juan and I looked at the openings and there were places like Tampa, Toronto and possibly Houston. But Juan said he was happier in Chicago, so let's do something."
