Will Kenny find another quarter to snag Rafael Soriano?

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).



  1. Scott Boras is Soriano’s agent. We typically don’t do large-dollar multi-year deals with Boras.

    Just as important, Heyman is Boras’ PR man in the media. Whatever Heyman says regarding the many destination of a Boras client should be taken FWIW.

    Finally, giving big bucks and multi-year contracts to relievers over 30 years old, and having to give up a draft choice too, makes me puke.

    • Right on all 3! Especially on the ‘multi-year deals to relievers over 30’ part.

  2. we are “all in” this year. in it for the world series championship so if the money was there I would see Williams trying to make the deal. but I agree with you guys, it wouldn’t be the wisest choice
