Heyman @ SI tweets:
there seems to be interest in a rafael soriano/Ozzie Guillen pairing. but word thus far is, chisox have little if any $ left
chisox pen not bad w/ sale, thornton, santos, crain, pena. but soriano would be fine jenks replacement — if they find $
Will Santa Jerry visit the South Side again?
BTW, Soriano is a Type-A free-agent who was offered arbitration. So, if the Sox sign him they’ll send their 2nd round pick to Tampa Bay (they gave the 1st round pick, #23, to Washington when they signed Adam Dunn).
“I’m not a big fan of the social media, personally,” Thornton said on ESPN 1000′s “Talking Baseball.” “I don’t tweet. I don’t Facebook. I don’t like it in sports at all. I don’t think it’s necessary at all. … What happened here with Oney tweeting what he did, that’s crossing a pretty big line in my personal opinion. That’s something that’s gotta be addressed quickly and taken care of and snuffed out real fast. Anytime you bring clubhouse stuff out in the open, I don’t care what it is, it’s that person’s personal business and also the clubhouse’s personal business. That’s the first time all this stuff has really irritated me. It doesn’t matter what’s true and what’s not true, I don’t care about that. The fact that anything was said at all is ridiculous. It’s definitely gotta be addressed and taken care of real quick around here.”
