DKnoblerEven after signing John Danks to an extension, the White Sox could still deal Gavin Floyd this winter, sources say.

In Knobler's article on the matter, he believes the Sox will still have a high asking price for Floyd, especially in light of the massive prospect packages that went to San Diego and Oakland for Mat Latos and Gio Gonzalez, respectively. And, just as the Sox are open to dealing Floyd, they're also open to keeping him.

 

So the John Danks extension wasn't a sign that the Sox are going "All In" again in 2012. The Sox still haven't entered rebuilding mode, although a trade of Floyd would signal some level of rebuilding.

That being said, they're not going for broke next season. There really aren't any additions they can make to the team from outside sources for improvement, the Sox just need Adam Dunn, Alex Rios, Jake Peavy and Gordon Beckham to turn things around.
