Giants Mail Bag


quote:

The White Sox have made it known that Paul Konerko is available. He would fill the need for a cleanup hitter and first baseman, and the White Sox seem to be asking for outfielders, of which we have a surplus. Maybe a package of Winn and Jonathan Sanchez? Do you see this as a possibility?
-- Nick P., Napa, Calif.

A fit between the Giants and White Sox definitely exists, although trades rarely unfold as neatly and simply as you suggested. There's also the issue of Konerko's contract. He'll earn $12 million per year through 2010, and he has a limited no-trade clause that blocks deals to six teams without his permission. I don't know whether the Giants are among those six, but if they are, forget it.

Well I would rather the Giants pay Konerko 12 million a year through 2010 then Rowand 12 million a year through 2012. Not saying that the trade would work, but the contract shouldn't be the thing that holds up a deal especially if Winn is part of it seeing that 8 Million would be taken off the boods.

It's a little late to choose between the two. We already have princess #1.

Do not suggest trading for somebody for only two years (unless the Giants dump a crappy contract)
