Colby Rasmus 'Tis the season for hypothetic trade rumors, and the Chicago Sun-Times' Joe Cowley is at it with the White Sox.

Still sticking to the Sun-Times story that the White Sox offered Ozzie Guillen to the Marlins for outfielder Mike Stanton (a story that has gotten WTF? denials from both sides), Cowley writes the White Sox are targeting the Cardinals' Colby Rasmus and is willing to give up Carlos Quentin headlining a package of players for the centerfielder.

"It was obvious that [the Cardinals] were paying extra attention to Quentin at the end of the season, so this might have been something that was already talked about," a scout told Cowley.

Rasmus, 24, hit .276/.361/.498 with 23 home runs in his second season. Quentin, 28, hit .243/.342/.479 with 26 home runs in 2010. He's second-year arbitration-eligible this offseason.

The White Sox would have to throw in plenty more than just Quentin, but hey, these are the same folks who thought someone would give up Stanton (the outfielder, not the former reliever) for a manager.

Amen, brother.

Cowley is comparable to Marriotti in so many unflattering ways.

Why does anyone believe, or even write, anything that Cowley says?  The guy just flat out makes things up on a regular basis so he can garner attention for himself.  Terrible. 

A few weeks ago, he made up all this stuff about Ozzie being "gone" and that the relationship between Kenny and Ozzie was "over" and "irrepairable".  Umm, this was minutes after Kenny was interviewed on the other sports radio station saying that he wanted Ozzie back and with the team for 10 more years, and that they could definitely coexist.

The guy is a flat out fabricator and shouldn't be trusted with anything that comes out of his mouth.
