« White Sox Trade Getz and Fields For Royals Mark Teahen Footballic Ramblings: The Red Birds Come A Callin' »

White Sox Fri Nov 06 2009

Um, Not So Fast... (Updated)

Yeah, that whole White Sox/Kansas City Mark Teahen-Chris Getz-Josh Fields trade that buzz around the league Thursday? Don't change your scorecards just yet.

Apparently it's not a done deal as none of the players involved have officially been notified yet, according to reports. Teahen even Twittered as much.

Now, reports of Scott Podsednik and Ramon Castro filing for free agency are correct. And rumors that the Texas Rangers are throwing out feelers for Jermaine Dye have some validity. But that KC/Sox deal? Let's just wait and see.

UPDATE: Ok, NOW it's official: The Teahen-Getz-Fields deal has finally been approved by all parties. Geez, was the Red Sox-to-Yankees trade of Babe Ruth this complicated?
