The World Series could end as soon as tonight, and the WS is closely followed by the hot stove season.  The general managers of the teams who have been eliminated have been talking and ideas are being floated.

One of those ideas hit the internets today when it was reported the Jays were interested in Gordon Beckham of the White Sox.

The article went on to suggest that a deal could be expanded to include a starting pitcher such as Hector Santiago or John Danks.


Having floated the trade idea the story then tries to show why it will not happen:

He (Beckham) was limited to 103 games due to the removal of a fractured left hamate bone, a strained ligament in his left wrist and a right quad strain that slowed him for the season's final six weeks.

There's a strong possibility that nothing short of an overwhelming offer would pry loose Beckham from the White Sox, as even in their current reshaping mode, the club hopes to contend in 2014.


The article then suggests the overwhelming offer would include either Aaron Sanchez or Marcus Stroman.


More rumours are sure to hit soon.
