"The fact is, he's going to hit around .300. That's what he's done his whole career. He's going to continue to have good at-bats. I really believe the reason he struggled earlier was because his Achilles wasn't 100 percent."

Da Meat Hook is trade bait: who's gonna bite?
Based on nothing but a gut feeling, we're putting our money squarely on the White Sox: pathetic offense (that's right, worse than the NAAAts in runs and just about every other important category), imploding bullpen, and desperate to get back into the race in the AL Central, it's a perfect match.
Note to Jim Bowden: Get on the phone with Ken Williams and offer Young AND the Chief to the Chi Sox for prospects...Next question: what sort of prospects would be realistic to expect in return?
