At the GM meetings in mid-November, Kenny Williams intimated there was significant interest from other teams about dealing for his pitchers -- presumably meaning John Danks and Gavin Floyd. But, in the same interview, Williams said the team hadn't decided on trading anybody.
At the winter meetings in December, we learned the Yankees and Red Sox were interested in Danks, although there wasn't a match. Robin Ventura also told Chuck Garfien he hoped to have both Danks and Floyd in his starting rotation next season. Looks like half of his wish will come true.
Earlier this week, a report out of Toronto had the White Sox and Blue Jays discussing a trade involving Danks and Carlos Quentin.
In this episode of the SportsTalk Live Podcast, Danny Parkins (670 The Score), Chris Bleck (ESPN 1000) and Scott King (WGN Radio) join David Kaplan on the panel.

Plus, Rick Hahn joins Kap from Glendale, Ariz., to discuss the state of the White Sox rebuild, how tough it is to keep their best prospects in the minors and why Jose Abreu is so important for his young team?

The White Sox three outfield prospects are creating a lot of buzz at spring training.
On this edition of the podcast, Micker Adolfo tells Chuck Garfien about a conversation they all had about one day becoming the starting outfield for the White Sox. Adolfo talks about his longtime friendship with Eloy Jimenez, his impressions of Luis Robert, Luis Basabe and the White Sox future.
But first, it's a conversation with MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez who has great insight on many of the White Sox players: Jimenez, Robert, Yoan Moncada and Jose Abreu. He tells an amazing story about why Jimenez decided to sign with the Cubs when he was a teenager, how much Abreu is revered in Cuba and much more.
