Rotoworld reports that the Phils have "done their homework" on Quentin.

if KW gets a real good young player back for Q, I'm all for it.

Think Kenny could have held out a lil longer with Jackson, maybe a team would have gotten desperate and given more, but that's just speculation on my part

Brown straight up. no less.

I agree with Josh. Yankees are DESPERATE for pitching, and are a club that can take on salary... Send Jackson to them for Montero+

Why take back an old type b FA and a project prospect.

Esp when the value of your players can be sold to the highest bidder.

This Jon F'n Adkins et al all over.

Fire KW and GW. Promote Hahn and start spending in the draft... Even TB has figured out spending on the draft is worth it.

To be somewhat fair, the BJs have misused Stewart.   Hopefully the Sox convert him to relief and tell him to stop with the "four mediocre pitches".

The latest I received from my source is that the only snag in the deal is $ shipped with Rios and prospect/s from the Brewers.

these players, and these teams. Nothing against the Brewers and White Sox,but if I wanted to play games, it would be a bigger market/names.

A bit surprised to hear that Eduardo Escobar could potentially be involved in this same deal from the White Sox.

Nothing is final, and with as much money as Rios is owed, I am sure a lot of specifics are being worked out in terms $ eaten by White Sox

Nothing is final quite yet, but the White Sox are expected to eat most of Rios's remaining $, and Thornton will be a centerpiece.

I was actually hoping for Kyle Drabek from the 'Jays.

Drabek would have been a nice get.

All for Rios being on his way to another team... hope we dont have togive up to much in dollars... we're obviously not getting much in terms of players back if mat Gamel is the centerpiece of the deal.

Me too.

And I hope Rios turns it around and starts raking, thereby giving more fuel to the "Fire Greg Walker" fire.

Nope, the guy you are referring to is actually a major-league ball crusher.   ;D   :P

Still waiting for someone to bash that guy's twitter name.

...or to write a parody song about him to the Traffic classic...

I really don't think JR will want to eat anything close to the $42M dollars owed to Rios through 2014. 

I bet their willing to part with $10M, max.
