Full story: Chicago Sun-Times

Javier Vazquez arrived in Atlanta on Wednesday, but his official title still was enigma in the White Sox' starting rotation.

Just finished Cowley's piece in the Sun-Times about the trade, and I hope he's right about Tyler Flowers. I admit I don't know much about him, though I'm correcting that right now. I'm more intrigued, however, by what the Sox plan to do next. I believe they'll trade Dye for some of the Reds young pitching, but I also think Kenny has his eyes on a veteran: Ben Sheets. He fits the Sox profile: Dominating stuff, plus fastball with movement, high strikeouts, has injury history so will take 2-3 year deal at slightly less than market. Everyone else is fixated on Sabathia, Lowe, Burnett, I've evn heard Andy Pettite, but not a peep about Ben Sheets. With Javy gone and Contreras leaving next year, you've only got 1 starter, Buehrle, that costs anything. Yet you have 3 solid startersin Buerhle, Floyd and Danks. Adding Sheets will give the Sox one of the better rotations in baseball, which is key when you're likely looking at a youth movement in the field. Plus, at 3 years, by the time that's done Kenny will hope to have one or two of the arms he's stockpiling to be ready for the big club. I wouldn't look for any free agent posistion players of any significance, as they're number one need, CF, is not represented in this years group.

You could be right about Sheets...
I'd like to see it.
But today's news about Cabrera might have changed a lot of KW's thinking around.
