Probably not a good sign for your team when Brent Lillibridge draws the most trade interest.

If you needed a utility infielder, why on earth would you shop Yamaico Navarro and pursue Edgar Renteria?

Lillibridge is now my favorite player Not named Konerko on the White Sox now that Buehrle is gone.

Really Ken Rosenthal? I think he has Jon Heyman disease, when the White Sox have Garland, Floyd, Quentin, Beckham & Ramirez, everyone is asking about…Brent Lillibridge?

Great.. the Indians beat writer from the PLAIN DULL reports that a guy that has no chance of being signed because it’s not an area of need & doesn’t fit or isn’t as good as everyone else at the same position on the team  won’t get signed.. 
Brilliant.. another 18 seconds of life that you’ll never get back.. Paul Hoynes needs a hobby.. something other than reporting on baseball..
