Hahn says trade talks gathering steam

CHICAGO -- White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that the intensity of trade talks definitely has picked up in recent days.

"There's been a lot of names exchanged. A lot of ideas thrown across the board," Hahn said. "Not perhaps real good ideas, which is why nothing has taken place on the trade front just yet.

"Activity is picking up. The GM Meetings are a nice opportunity, as it is every year for teams to start getting a little more serious about fits and having more substantive talks with clubs and free agents. We well could have something in the next day, or it could take through [the Winter Meetings in] Orlando, [Fla.], when the logjam sort of breaks."
