This column suggests that the Angels, Yankees, and White Sox might do a three-way deal, the upshot of which would be that Glaus would replace the injured Aaron Boone in New York, Erstad and Washburn would head to Chicago, the Angels would get Konerko and Valentin from the Sox, and New York would send prospects to both Chicago and Anaheim.

Riiiiiiiight. And the Angels would hire a trained mouse to play third, I suppose.

The column is just skylarking, basically, with nary a source to suggest that any of the deals he's talking about are actually under consideration by anyone with, say, the power to make them happen. This is the kind of thing that passes for "news" in late January, the lazy dog-danglin' afternoon of the baseball year.
