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.
