Had discussions not cooled and a trade went through, this would've made three consecutive trades Kenny Williams would have made with the Toronto Blue Jays. The last two deals the Sox GM has made were with Toronto, sending Edwin Jackson and Mark Teahen north of the border in July and Sergio Santos to the Jays last week. In return, the Sox have acquired Zach Stewart, Jason Frasor and Nestor Molina.

There must be something about Toronto. Maybe players are requesting to be dealt there. After all, it's "like Albany, only cleaner."

Either way, the smart money appears to be on Quentin being dealt at some point before spring training. With the Sox looking to cut payroll, dealing Quentin makes a ton of sense given what will likely be a 7 million salary for 2012 and the need to make room for Dayan Viciedo in right.

White Sox Talk Podcast: 'Searching for a safe space in Cubslandia'

With the Cubs back in the NLCS, White Sox fans have had to deal with another post-season of Cubs this and Cubs that. How does one escape it? Diehard White Sox fan John Kass of the Chicago Tribune comes on the podcast to talk with Chuck Garfien about his recent column entitled "Searching for a safe space in Cubslandia." Kass talks about how he's dealing with the Cubs success and how White Sox fans can find this safe space. He tells the story about taking the White Sox World Series trophy into a Chicago Tribune board meeting in 2005 to rub it in the faces of the Trib's executives who were all Cubs fans.  

Kass talks about how he watches the Cubs in the playoffs, the Chicago media coverage of their playoff run and how Cubs fans will react if they don't repeat as champions. Garfien and Kass also discuss the White Sox rebuild, the Cubs losing in 2003 and why Kass will be calling Cubs Pre and Post host David Kaplan in the middle of the night if and when the Cubs are eliminated.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
