The Chicago White Sox apparently don't have tons of cash to throw around this off-season so don't plan to be overly active on the free-agent market. However, the team does apparently plan to be right at the center of a lot of wheeling and dealing.
The word from ESPN is that the South Siders are likely to put Jermaine Dye(notes), Bobby Jenks(notes), and Octavio Dotel(notes) up on the trading block. Dotel doesn't come as a huge surprise since he has said he wouldn't mind playing for the Chicago Cubs (not a good thing for a White Sox fan to hear).
Dotel apparently wouldn't mind returning to play for the New York Mets or the New York Yankees. For each of those clubs, he basically pitched half a season. For the Mets, he made his career debut, back in 1999 and helped them to the National League Championship Series. For the Yankees in 2005, he didn't pitch till August due to injuries.
