White Sox Open For Business

The White Sox are open for business, ESPN's Buster Olney heard from multiple executives.  Olney specifically names Paul Konerko as someone who is available right now.  Check out Olney's info in these three tweets.

Back in April, I ran through players who could be available if the Sox became sellers.  Konerko can veto any trade, a right that will be granted to A.J. Pierzynski and Mark Buehrle on June 14th and July 6th, respectively.  As sellers the White Sox could offer up one of trade season's hottest commodities: relief pitching.  Bobby Jenks and J.J. Putz would be prime trade candidates.  I'm guessing Scott Linebrink and Tony Pena would not be difficult to pry loose, though Matt Thornton would.  The Sox also have plenty of veterans on one-year deals, such as Andruw Jones, Freddy Garcia, Mark Kotsay, Omar Vizquel, and Ramon Castro.
