white sox Sox GM Kenny Williams, the king of the trade deadline, is quietly exploring possibility of acquring Brett Myers from Astros
Fangraphs on Myers: 113 K / 42 BB, 3.10 ERA, 3.52 FIP, 3.78 xFIP, 2.8 WAR, 49.8% GB%, .294 BABIP, 7.01 K/9, 2.61 BB/9, 0.74 HR/9
- 1 year/$5.1M (2010), plus 2011 mutual option
- 10:$3.1M, 11:$8M mutual option ($2M buyout)
Getting Myers, unlike Edwin Jackson, makes sense. And it has JJ’s approval!
UPDATE: Nightengale (USAT):
White Sox have Edwin Jackson included in current trade package for Dunn. If Sox get Dunn, then will try to land Astros’ Brett Myers
That would fix things.
