The Chicago White Sox are shaking up their roster this winter, and things started yesterday when they traded closer Sergio Santos to the Toronto Blue Jays. Now they're meeting with the Boston Red Sox at the winter meetings in Dallas to discuss starting pitchers Gavin Floyd and John Danks, according to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston.
Danks and Floyd have been two of Chicago's most obvious trade candidates this offseason, along with right fielder Carlos Quentin and reliever Matt Thornton. They're arguably the best two pitchers on the White Sox at this point, though, so the asking prices on both pitchers are likely to be quite high.
Boston could definitely use some additional help in the rotation after the pitching breakdown that occurred down the stretch for them in 2011. They still have Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz and John Lackey slotted into the rotation, but it's unsurprising to see them looking for upgrades in the hyper-competitive AL East.
