Former White Sox Linchpins Ozzie Guillen And Aaron Rowand Join Forces In Miami

The new look Miami Marlins have made flashier moves this off-season, but one minor signing the club made today is sure to make White Sox fans nostalgic for the recent past. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that Aaron Rowand will (possibly) be rejoining his former manager Ozzie Guillen in Miami after signing a minor league deal.

Rowand and Guillen, of course, helped the White Sox to a World Series title in 2005.

It's a shock that Rowand would even sign with the Marlins given this little nugget:

If Rowand is added to the 40-man roster, he’ll receive the major league minimum $480,000, which would be offset from the $12 million owed in the final season of $60 million, five-year deal the Giants released him from in September.

The White Sox reportedly had interest in bringing Rowand back, too. As the Sox have showed this offseason, if you aren't going to contend, at least make the fans happy.
