Weird source. Not a media member, but the Twitter account came out of three months of dormancy to say the Jackson deal was imminent. So maybe there's a thread of truth to this?
Next question is, what would we WANT from the White Sox that's worth giving up our 1B for the foreseeable future?
More Tweets from @MrFantasyExpert, who claims to have a src close to the situation, and says Alex Rios and Thornton are the targets. Thanks to SRB for passing them along in the comments.
Centerpiece in the Gamel to White Sox trade is Thornton/Rios,still gathering more in terms of farm players being discussed. WS eating Rios $
Nothing is final quite yet, but the White Sox are expected to eat most of Rios’s remaining $, and Thornton will be a centerpiece.
Still gathering minor league players being discussed from both teams in the Gamel to White Sox trade #whitesox #brewers.
Nothing is final, and with as much money as Rios is owed, I am sure a lot of specifics are being worked out in terms $ eaten by White Sox
