Gird Your Loins: The Jeff Keppinger Era Has Arrived


Rick Hahn and the White Sox finally made a move at the winter meetings, as it's being reported by multiple outlets that the Sox have signed Jeff Keppinger to a three-year deal worth $12 million. This is exactly the kind of boring ass deal you should have been expecting from the Sox this offseason.

There is nothing about signing Jeff Keppinger that should be exciting. He's a 32-year old journeyman utility infielder that's coming off a career season in Tampa last year where he hit .325/.367/.439. However, there's no reason to be upset about this move either.

Another Winter, Another Gavin Floyd To The Red Sox Rumor


Gavin Floyd has been traded roughly five thousand times since he became a White Sox. All last winter there were rumors circulating around him, and there were even more rumors about him being traded during the season.

One of the teams that was most interested in him was the Boston Red Sox, and it seems the Red Sox haven't lost interest in Gavin just yet. According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald the White Sox are open to trading Gavin -- what new? -- to Boston, and may even get a catcher out of it.
