Garfien also said that we shouldnt expect a Viciedo callup soon as he injured his thumb, the same one he broke in ST.

Here's a rumor for ya:

cst_Cowley cst_Cowley

And as far as the whole Dunn not having fun story ... according to one Sox official, having too much fun might be his real problem.

Being the fun-lovin guy that likes to have a few c0cktails after games works when you're hitting 30-40 homers a year ....

.... when you're not, grab a few clubhouse brews and just chill in the room. Perception is everything. #TheBrianAndersonRule

Memo to Dunn: shadow Paul Konerko and do everything he does during the season and in the offseason. You'll be fine.

PS:  I had to re-word "c0cktails" because when left as is, the board changes it to ****tails.  Hilarious.

At least KW tried to get Victor Martinez before settling for Dunn. Damn, that would have made a ton of difference.

Think about some of the other guys KW tried to get that would have made a ton of difference:  Torii Hunter should be roaming CF and then we wouldn't be stuck with Rios and Miguel Cabrera could have been our DH.

Of course, that's assuming both guys wouldn't automatically lose their skills upon putting on a White Sox uniform.

Walker would still be the hitting coach....

Rios didnt have any skills before he got here... thats why the Jays let him and his albatross of a contract walk away.

I don't think there's a lack of talent there, with Rios.

I think there's no fire in the belly.

He doesnt have the fire because he already has the big money contract and is set for life. All he has to do is go through the motions.

Well, he was criticized by Blue Jays fans for having no motivation when he played in Toronto.

I hear JR wants to cut payroll so that seems to mean we are going to be sellers at the deadline.

I understand Reinsdorf's wish to clear salary.  Unfortunately they can't get rid of the three guys who cost the most.

here's another one for you:

DeAza was pulled from the Knights game last night, and there's speculation he's being called up.

Wow, I was just kidding about theat last post, but basments across the Chicagoland area are abuzz with the rumor that the BJs are in fact looking to flip Jackson to the Cards.

This trade just gets stupider & stupider.

But a Jackson/Rasmus deal makes sense if Toronto is packaging others with him...I can't believe it would be a one-for-one swap...

Why would we trade JAckson for a 33 year old reliever? just so the blue jays can get a hot young CF in return for him...

makes no sense.

9:21am: The White Sox are in serious talks for a deal that would send starter Edwin Jackson and third baseman Mark Teahen to the Blue Jays for reliever Jason Frasor and a prospect, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  Rosenthal's colleague Jon Paul Morosi says this deal is close and money could be involved.  The rumor was first reported ten hours ago on Twitter by a fellow named Doug Seyller.

The Jays' motivation for renting Jackson for two months and taking on a bad contract in Teahen is unclear.  There doesn't appear to be a draft pick angle, as both Jackson and Frasor project as Type Bs.  Perhaps Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos is considering flipping Jackson to a contender.

The White Sox were known to be seeking bullpen help, and Frasor has a club option for next year.  The Sox could also subtract a reliever, as Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that they're talking to the Cardinals about Matt Thornton.  Maybe Kenny Williams' goal in the Jackson trade is to shed the $9.7MM left on the contracts of the two veterans, though we need to see the quality of the prospect involved.  Sox pitchers John Danks and Gavin Floyd are also on the market, according to Rosenthal.  The White Sox are currently 4.5 games out in the AL Central with another game against the Tigers tonight.

Seems we are trading Jackson to Toronto and getting back a reliever so that we can send Thornton to the Cardinals for hopefully Rasmus
