ROWAND’S NOT COMING BACK
Whatever will Ken Williams do now?
The Giants have signed Aaron Rowand to a five-year deal. Oops.
Perhaps he’ll be signing Mike Cameron or just stick with Jerry Owens in CF.
So, let’s tally it up. Ken Williams missed on Torii Hunter, Aaron Rowand, Miguel Cabrera and Kosuke Fukudome. But he did get Carlos Quentin. Hmm.
Hard to tell if the Sox are any better than they were last year. We all know spring training is months away, but you can’t go shopping when the cupboards are bare. I think he totally undersold Garland. I think he gave a middle reliever too many years and too much money. I think he signed Uribe and then went out and got another shortstop. I think he could have traded Garland for a power bat.
I think the White Sox offseason is brutal so far. I hear they have interest in Jason Bay, but the Pads are hard after him too. Will they lose out on another player? Bay is a dominant player when healthy and only 29. You have to think he will again play to his previous level. But will it be for the Sox?
