Wait? Brian Roberts to the Chicago White Sox?

Brian Roberts always seems to be linked to the Chicago Cubs in trade rumors, but White Sox general manager Kenny Williams loves the guy and is trying to acquire him.

The two sides have discussed former Mount St. Joe pitcher Gavin Floyd as a starting point in trade talks. The Orioles might need more, though the White Sox would want it to be straight-up, since they’d be surrendering a 17-game winner. School of Roch.

I want to go through all the ways that this rumor sucks, but it actually kind of makes sense. So instead, I’ll pick with the Mount St. Joe reference. Writers always toss that shit in as it matters in terms of making the trade. Annoys me. Maybe I’m just crabby because I want Brian Roberts all for myself. I mean for the Cubs.

No, no. I meant what I said.
