White Sox

From the last few days:

-On Monday, we looked at what the upshot of the White Sox holding on to Carlos Quentin would be, breaking it down into four bullet points. I don't see Quentin sticking around -- Kenny Williams still has about two months before spring training opens to deal him -- but as we inch toward February, the chances of him not being dealt will continue to slightly increase.

-Also from Monday, we passed along Scott Merkin's top five moments of the last year for the White Sox. Check out a post later today on White Sox Talk for a different take on the top five.

-Lastings Milledge is on his way to Japan. A recommendation for him: watch Mr. Baseball every day from now until the move. Tom Selleck has the answers. Although, I guess Milledge didn't get beat out for a spot on the 2012 White Sox by Frank Thomas.

-A reader of the Chicago Baseball Hot Stove live chat wondered what the overunder for White Sox home runs next season would be, so we looked at it in a little more detail. Around 160 seems right.

-A couple of good South Side Sox reads: Jim looks at Big Ed Walsh, with some interesting anecdotes about the deadball era White Sox hurler. And Larry examines the proposed John Danks-Jose Lopez trade that drew the ire of any Sox fan who saw it two years ago. Also from the blogosphere, James at White Sox Observer posted his thoughts on the Sox potentially trading Gavin Floyd.

 

Around the division:

-"The Indians offseason has been a yawner." The Sox have had a pretty slow offseason, too, but nothing close to the crushing boredom emanating from Cleveland.
