White Sox Might Consider Oswalt

The White Sox might consider dealing for Roy Oswalt, tweets Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.  At the same time, GM Kenny Williams & Co. are leery of a switch from the National League to the American League.

Williams may have some convincing to do as Oswalt reportedly does not want to play for the White Sox.  One has to think that the ace could be swayed, however, as the ChiSox present Oswalt with a chance to win and the opportunity to team up with friend Jake Peavy.  Back in 2008, Peavy was open to joining the Astros in order to play with the three-time All-Star.

It appeared that the White Sox would be sellers just one month ago.  However, the club may look to buy after rallying in recent weeks and climbing their way to the top of the AL Central.

According to an unsourced Ken Rosenthal report. Even if it’s true, we don’t know when that information comes from; it may have been before the White Sox vaulted themselves back into contention.

Things can change.

Didn’t Oswalt already say he would decline a trade to the Tigers and Sox?

Didn’t Oswalt say he’d refuse a trade to CHW, anyway?

Pretty sure Oswalt said he wouldn’t approve a trade to the White Sox.

Typical Sox fan… middle of the pack all year, finally work your way up to first for one day and start talking like they own the division. It’s mid July, don’t act like you just grabbed first in September.

Wait, is this Rick Porcello chiming in from the minors? On behalf of all typical Sox fans, I apologize for hurting your feelings. Maybe next time we spot you guys a 10 win head start, you’ll take better care of it.

haha you guys are hilarious. Because your boy Gordon Beckham is doing a whole lot better than Porcello this year huh? Dude should be in the minors himself… but KW is content with just letting him suck in the bigs.

Typical Detriot fan… Someone talks a little smack and you play the innocent victim, all the while conveniently forgetting Detroit fans are the worst I’ve ever met at running their mouths. Don’t act all squeaky clean on the trash talking because the Sox have put together a great run. We all have no idea who will end up winning the division, but the fact remains..you’re in second, we’re in first. The standings at the end of the season matter, but don’t act like you didn’t enjoy your run in first place while it lasted, today’s our first day atop the division. We’re enjoying it.

You have the arguably the worst pitching staff in the AL central and have no shot at winning the division. Your average starter ERA is about 5.00 and the only pitcher on your staff that could pitch for the Sox is Verlander. How do you possibly think that you have any chance at competing when all you have is a few good hitters (won’t argue with that)? I can’t wait until they restore Detroit back to a “natural” state so we do not have to be anywhere near that dump of a “ghost” town.

Yes we fear the brilliant wheeling and dealing of the tigers, seeing as you guys have a whopping one wild card birth the last ten years.

The guys splits are night and day. First half most years he is incredible (not this year) second half he is average. He is putting up these numbers in NL West not sure what they would like in the AL Central but I am thinking not as good.

Really you’re cracking on Kenny?? Dont forget he is a World Series winning GM! And peavy and oswalt are good friends. Remember last may when peavy said im not going to the white sox? Until I hear Oswalt come on tv and say Im not going to chicago…then im keeping out hope. Get oswalt and berkman in a package n id be happy
