Cowley @ CST tweets:

Multiple sources confirmed that the Sox are actively looking to trade [Carlos] Quentin for a package w/bullpen help, but “are asking a lot so far.”

MLBTR says the “are asking a lot so far” thing could mean that the Sox are just “gauging the market at this point.”

UPDATE: Kenny says not so fast:

Ken Williams emphatically denied Saturday that any trade talk was ongoing involving White Sox outfielder Carlos Quentin for a relief pitcher, and the general manager sought to dispel any rumors that it would happen.

… “Three teams asked about him (at the winter meetings) and I have not had one single conversation with anyone since. We’ll add to our relief pitching without (trading) him.” Williams admitted he needs one or two relievers to round out his team and that a trade could happen soon, but said it will not involve subtracting from his current lineup.

UPDATE #2: Cowley says not so fast himself:

Scout just confirmed that KW is hoping Quentin can land him “a Carlos Lee-type return.” Lee was traded for [Scott] Podsednik and [Luis] Vizcaino in 2004.

and if Quentin isn’t desired by others:

If the deal is not there will then explore moving [Dayan] Viciedo or [Mark] Teahen, but know that the return won’t be as much.

Will there be another update?  You bet!
