Phil Rogers throws out the possibility in today’s column, suggesting the White Sox trade for Aaron Rowand and Jon Lieber. Mike MacDougal would probably be involved in such a deal.
After trading away several starters, one would not expect the White Sox to be in the market for starting pitching. Kenny Williams is unpredictable though. And it is true that the Sox scouted Carl Pavano’s last start. It would be interesting to see Liebs return to Chicago, but for the Sox to send their starter surplus to Philly only to get it back seems unlikely.
Rogers thinks the Mets, Cards, Astros, Braves, and Giants would all be nice fits for Lieber. Not sure whether the Phils would want to help the Mets or Braves improve their pitching staffs, however.
