Crede In Chicago - For Now

Reported By Stephen Rhodes

Rumors have been abound and rampant about Chicago White Sox third baseman Joe Crede's status; but according to team general manager Ken Williams as told to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Crede is good to go as the Opening Day's starting 3B. Williams added, ''Yes, that can happen. And the most difficult thing in all of this would be if I have to have that conversation with Josh Fields because he has done everything we've asked, and he's played well enough where he deserves to be on a big-league roster.''

Williams did admit that he was approached by 2 teams, but their offers left a lot to be desired; the teams in question here are the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. But Williams reiterated that Crede still has a year left on his current contract; the team plans to keep 2 third basemen, and unless something drastic happens between now and March 31 or so, expect Crede and Josh Fields to break camp as the 3B for the Sox, with Crede the starter on Opening Day.
