Maybe the Abreu trade is not true, but someday you will see something similar happening, like Johan Santana, Carlos Guillen or Willie Taveras playing for the White Sox.
This doesn't make any sense. Maybe Ozzie has a liking for Latin players. That makes sense since he is a Latino. However, you aren't going to see the Sox becoming the Venezuelan national team. He was such great friends with fellow Venezuelan Maggs Ordonez last year, remember?
But hey, if they want to go out and get Santana and C Zambrano down the line because they are Venezuelan then I am all about it.
Garcia is married to Ozzie's niece.
