You can check it out for free directly from the source!

As Chet Coppock reported on Sporting News Radio last Sunday, a Sox investor indicated the team was on the verge of a deal with San Francisco that would send pitcher Jason Schmidt to the South Side, a report another team executive would not deny.

If healthy — and that's a big if — Schmidt would join Mark Buehrle, Jon Garland and Freddy Garcia in the deepest rotation in the big leagues. "I want a top-of-line starter," K-Will said. "You know me better than to want anything less than that."

Indications are that Schmidt or any other newly acquired fourth starter would also pitch out of the bullpen in the postseason.

(Remember what starter-turned-reliever Josh Beckett did for Florida against the Cubs in Game 7 of the NLCS two years ago? Then in the World Series, Beckett started Game 6 and threw a two-hit shutout against the Yankees as the Marlins clinched the title.)

The deal could be expanded to include shortstop Omar Vizquel, who, like Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, is a Venezuela native. Vizquel wasn't yet available, according to a team source, but that could change if and when the fourth-place Giants decide to call it a season before the end of the month.

"I prefer to fly stealth," was all Williams would say Wednesday about the trade speculation.

The Sox had Vizquel at the top of their wish list last winter, only to have the Giants step in with a better offer. Shortstop Juan Uribe has been a disappointment thus far, while Omar the Playmaker remains as consistent as ever at 38.

Indeed, Sox Nation should have complete faith in whatever Williams does in the next three weeks, because the guy has turned chopped steak into filet mignon for two years now.

Great. Schmidt has sucked for me enough this year without facing any DHs. :-/

if ESPN finds out they're posting ESPN's copywritted stuff here, the cafe could get in some legal trouble. rather than run that risk, it's just safer to keep people from posting copywritted materials here.

its just weird that we quote all sorts of different sources, from newspapers, online articles, different fantasy insider stuff, yahoo insider stuff, etc.

Not sure why ESPN is singled out, maybe its not but I highly doubt anything could happen.

Quoting is fine, but when you post the whole thing, then it becomes a copyright issue.
