Another move for Sox?

After a slow start to the offseason, the Chicago White Sox quickly are making up for lost time.

A day after dealing three prospects to Oakland for Nick Swisher, the Sox are rumored to be moving Paul Konerko to the Los Angeles Angels for a package that could include Howie Kendrick and Ervin Santana.

The move would send Konerko to a place he flirted with two seasons ago. Shortly after winning the 2005 American League Championship Series MVP award, Konerko became a free agent. The most mentioned destination for the slugging first baseman was southern California. However, he signed a four-year contract to remain on the south side of Chicago.

The move would improve both clubs as the Sox would land a potential All-Star second baseman in Kendrick and a talented, yet enigmatic, right-hander in Santana. Meanwhile, the Angels would finally land the missing impact bat that has plagued the club in recent seasons.
