The White Sox and Red Sox reportedly discussed Floyd during the Winter Meetings, although nothing came of it. The Sox asking price remains high, according to Morosi, who reported yesterday that Toronto has had intermittent discussions about Floyd with the White Sox.

If a team is going to pay a premium price for a pitcher in a trade, though, they'll probably try for Matt Garza or Jair Jurrjens first. If they miss out on those two guys, then they should try to get Edwin Jackson via free agency. And if they miss out on all three, that's when Floyd could become a target -- as a fourth option.

So if the White Sox don't lower their asking price for him (which is unknown outside of "high"), Floyd probably won't be dealt this winter.
