Does anyone want to pitch for the White Sox?

White Sox general manager Kenny Williams keeps trying to acquire a big-name starting pitcher and they keep spurning his advances.

Last week Williams worked out a trade for Jake Peavy only to have the Padres ace use his no-trade clause to block the deal and now the Houston Chronicle reports that Roy Oswalt “would invoke his no-trade clause if the White Sox attempted to acquire him.”

The report about Oswalt comes amid speculation that the White Sox have been scouting him for a potential deal. Interestingly, the newspaper notes that Oswalt and Peavy are good friends and Peavy said during the offseason that he’d “embrace a trade to the Astros,” but apparently neither guy wants to pitch for the White Sox.

Meanwhile, the White Sox have won three straight and are 9-3 over their last dozen games, climbing into second place in the AL Central ... at 24-25.
