Aurilia Drawing Interest, Rowand to Chicago

Sunday, November 12, 2006

According to radio reports in Philadelphia, the Phillies have contacted Rich Aurilia's agent about playing third base. In the Top 50 Free Agents, I put Aurilia coming to the Cubs and platoon at 2B with Cedeno. I thought he would be a utility infielder for the Cubs. However, I think he will want to go somewhere where he can start, and I guess the Phillies have that opening and want him there.

A report coming out of Chicago, Ken Williams wants Rowand back
. This may happen if the White Sox can not land an outfielder. However, I doubt the White Sox would trade for him.
