Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Sox GM Kenny Williams has been in talks with Pat Gillick regarding Aaron Rowand. This is not the first time such a possibility has surfaced. Southpaw Boone Logan may be among the relievers going to Philadelphia.
Even after the Freddy Garcia trade, a Philadelphia Inquirer article mentioned that Rowand remained a favorite of White Sox management. If they can’t trade for him, there’s a chance they sign him as a free agent after the season. Center field and left field are definitely holes for Chicago this season, but I don’t expect the Sox to rely on Erstad/Sweeney/Anderson/Podsednik all year long.
