Report: White Sox Interested in Cardinals’ Rasmus

(CBS) The White Sox are in talks with the St. Louis Cardinals about acquiring center fielder Colby Rasmus, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

The 24 year-old outfielder is batting just .241 this season with nine home runs and 36 runs batted in. He recently lost his regular starting job in center field to Jon Jay and the Cardinals are hoping to move Rasmus for pitching help.

According to the report, “negotiations with White Sox general manager Kenny Williams have accelerated in recent days,  according to sources, with the Sox able to dangle pending free agent  pitcher Edwin Jackson or lefthanded reliever Matt Thornton.”

The report also said the Cardinals are interested in some of the White Sox’s minor league prospects.

    Great wacko Kenny working another dumb trade. As the team has stated you can’t sit big dollar guys or send them down as should be done with Dunn as it hurts the players feelings so what are we gonna do with Rasmus? Rios has big money and years left on that wonderful contract Kenny Williams gave him like a dummy. So if you can’t sit Rios where does Rasmus play in? Only thing i can think is Kenny is working up a trade of Quintin our only other big batt threat we have in a lineup of bad Kenny signing and trades. So we trade our bat Move Rasmus or Rios into the outfield and drop our batting average and rbi production again lower then it is already..What will it take to get baserball stupid Kenny Williams fired> The issue the Sox have are all related to Kenny Williams who has shown year after year he is baseball stupid.. Lets trade Burhle too and get maybe some player batting .145 to sit on the bench. Kenny has to go in order for this team to get better.
