I had yet to acknowledged the Miguel Cabrera rumors because I didn't feel the Sox had the prospects to get a deal done. And in Ken Rosenthal's latest piece, he says the same thing. But, citing the always mysterious baseball sources, he says the Sox are still in the running with the intent to play Cabrera in LF.
In the admittedly unlikely event that all of that took place, the White Sox then would need the Marlins to accept a package of, say, left-hander Gio Gonzalez, third baseman Josh Fields and center fielder Jerry Owens.
Such an offer probably would be too light, but perhaps the Sox could acquire additional prospects for right-hander Jon Garland in another deal. Then again, parting with Garland on top of Gonzalez -- one year after trading Brandon McCarthy -- might not be such a good idea.
