Does anyone want to pitch for the White Sox?

Jun 1, 2009, 10:04 AM EST

White Sox general manager Kenny Williams keeps trying to acquire a
big-name starting pitcher and they keep spurning his advances.

Last week Williams worked out a trade for Jake Peavy only to have
the Padres ace use his no-trade clause to block the deal and now the Houston Chronicle reports that Roy Oswalt “would invoke his no-trade clause if the White Sox attempted to acquire him.”

The report about Oswalt comes amid speculation that the White Sox have
been scouting him for a potential deal. Interestingly, the newspaper
notes that Oswalt and Peavy are good friends and Peavy said during the
offseason that he’d “embrace a trade to the Astros,” but apparently
neither guy wants to pitch for the White Sox.

Meanwhile, the White Sox have won three straight and are 9-3 over
their last dozen games, climbing into second place in the AL Central
… at 24-25.
