Padilla @ ESPN:

With Saturday’s rained out game against the Indians expected to be moved to September as part of a day-night doubleheader, Guillen was asked in jest if that means Viciedo will be there to help the cause.

“Well if Viciedo is going to be the White Sox’s savior we will be in deep [expletive] … and you can quote me on that,” Guillen said. “If we wait for [expletive] Viciedo to be the savior, we’re in deep [expletive] if we wait for a Triple-A kid to come here and be the savior.”

The Cuban has cooled off a bit at Triple-A Charlotte, but is still batting .307 with 16 home runs and 64 RBIs heading into play Saturday.

“Can he help? Yes,” Guillen said. “Is he going to be the savior? I like the talent we have here.”

“we will be in deep [expletive]”? we already are in deep [expletive]

Other White Sox links: James looks at the improvement in Gordon Beckham’s defense and Tyler Flowers filling the backup catcher position, J.J. looks at the lack of moves in the White Sox roster after Ozzie’s rant, and Mike looks at Ozzie Guillen’s frequent “lack of effort” rants.

Is Dayan Viciedo coming up? No. [UPDATE #2]

MLBTR transcribes Ken Rosenthal’s latest video:

Don’t be surprised as to see the White Sox end up as sellers, says Rosenthal. They’ve got six starters as it is, so Edwin Jackson could be moved without harming the rotation much. Carlos Quentin could be dealt as well, and be replaced by Dayan Viciedo. Controlled through 2012, Quentin would become one of the hottest chips on the market.

BTW, the “White Sox and Red Sox have done a lot of scouting of one another over the last week,” tweets the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo.
