This doesn't come as much of a surprise to me considering that Kenny Williams is the kind of guy that walks into a party, looks for the hottest woman in the place and decides she's the one he's going to ask to dance without caring whether or not she'll say yes or no, but it looks like Kenny really likes that dress Zack Greinke is wearing.
Or at least his arm.
Yes, according to Jon Heyman, the Sox have now jumped into the mix on Greinke.
The surprising White Sox now have Zack Greinke on their radar, scoures said.
The first-place White Sox have established themselves as the favorite in the A.L. Central to the surprise of many, and they are said to be hoping to make another second big splash on the trade market. Their trade for third baseman Kevin Youkilis has been a major hit.
The Braves, Angels, Rangers, Orioles and other also are expected to be in the Greinke derby.As I already said in the Ryan Dempster post, and in this post right here, I am not surprised that the White Sox are interested. It makes complete sense that they'd be interested in Greinke, especially now that we don't know what's going on with Gavin Floyd.
That said, I still don't know how optimistic I'd be that this deal would happen. I just don't think the Sox have the kind of prospects they'd need to build a package for Greinke, at least not without including players from the current roster, and I don't see Kenny removing anybody from the 25-man roster to make a trade right now.
But I've been wrong before. Once. In 1989.
