Unless they get him for absolutely nothing I agree with BronX on this one. It makes no sense to the ChiSox and as for fantasy, I'd hate to see him go to the AL in the park that gave up the most HR last year.
The Giants are actively pursuing potential trade partners, but Colletti reiterated that right-hander Jason Schmidt will not be included in any deal.
"We don't have any intention of trading Jason Schmidt,'' Colletti said. "If we can improve our starting pitching, we've got a chance to put ourselves in a better position in the second half, and I don't think we put ourselves in a better position by trading Jason Schmidt.''[/url]
as a Sox fan, I have to disagree, the pitching staff or should I say the 2 Cubans (Contreras and Hernandez) or pretty big question marks right now, El Duque can't decide if he wants to pitch or not and Contreras can't get bad thoughts out of his head, the Sox could easily use a Jason Schmidt and send either Contreras or El Duque to the bullpen, especially if they only have to give up maybe a Carl Everett, Brandon McCarthy or some other minor league prospect. If the Sox get this deal done life will be good on the South side, and that quote about the trade rumor being denied, that was Ozzie Guillen saying that Kenny Williams has not mentioned any of it to him
If I were Jason Schmidt, I would not want to get anywhere near AJ Pierzynski. He started Schmidt's down-hill trend last. In fact theSan Francisco rotation still hasn't recovered. Not even (e)radi(c)ation could eliminate that cancer.
The glass is neither half full nor half empty... It is simply a glass
AJ started this "down hill" trend with the Giants staff? He's sure doing a terrible job with that White Sox staff, let me tell ya.
The cancer was Bomko last season, not AJ. Schmidt had some of his best games, including a 1 hitter, last season with AJ catching him. The staff this year lacks talent, it's a simple as that. Behind Schmidt, there's nothing. Sabean made a knee jerk trade with Williams and Aardsma, Lowry has hit the sophmore slump, and Tomko and Rueter are gas cans. To blame AJ for this season's struggles when he isnt even on the team is idiotic.
