Jack McDowell:

Manager Ozzie Guillen calmly states that the White Sox have “no other choice” but to stick with Clayton Richard in the rotation. But in the same breath, Richard’s struggles even prompted the young lefthander to almost beg out of the rotation! …

Scot Gregor:

Over his last 5 starts, Richard has pitched 18 innings and given up 21 earned runs on 28 hits and 6 walks.

Rookie left-hander Aaron Poreda is anxious to move from the White Sox’ bullpen to the rotation. Poreda’s not stretched out enough to start right now, according to the Sox, but he has got to be an option to replace Richard.

Scot Gregor:

“To bring that guy here, to me one of the best pitchers in the game, you’ve got to give up a lot of things, and I don’t think we can do that. I’m not the general manager, but they’re not going to ask for Ozzie and Oney (Guillen’s sons). They’re going to ask for a good chunk.”

Gregor thinks the Blue Jays will ask for Beckhan, Danks and Poreda. I’d not trade Danks alone. After the current year Halladay has 1 more year on his contract, and he is 32 years old.

LOL of the day

Ken Rosenthal speculates about possible Roy Halladay suitors:

White Sox. Ken Williams arranged a deal for Jake Peavy; why wouldn’t he act on Halladay?

Williams’ offer for Peavy, centered around left-handers Aaron Poreda and Clayton Richard, probably would not be enough. But if the White Sox were willing to move superstar-in-waiting Gordon Beckham, look out.

Hahaha! Gordon Beckham! Freakin’ hilarious Ken!

What’s Aaron Poreda up to?

Mark Gonzales is asked about Aaron Poreda. Poreda isn’t seeing much pitching time. What’s up Mark?

A: Well, the future is now. And the Sox see Poreda helping them now than anyone else in that 11th man role. When he’s not pitching, he’s working on his other pitches under the supervision of Don Cooper and Juan Nieves. This might cost him some innings, but his talents right now are better served at the major league level.

I’d like to see him pitch more, but the starters have done a better job pitching deeper into games.
