Let’s catch up on today’s White Sox rumors.
- Sox GM Ken Williams said, "If I had to guess as I sit here right now, I don’t foresee any other movement with veteran players. I’ll go to the winter meetings and be in a listening mode [instead of] an aggressive-type posture." Does that mean Jermaine Dye is staying put? Difficult to say, but the free agent market does feature plenty of corner outfielders.
- Sox Machine learned from Williams’ conference call that Orlando Cabrera would be used in a utility role if he accepts arbitration. Almost sounds like a threat. More likely, he’d be traded.
- Chris De Luca of the Chicago Sun-Times expects Williams to call the Orioles about Brian Roberts. Also, he considers the above quote from Williams to be a "head-fake."
