06:53 AM ET 11.28 | According to a White Sox source close to the situation, Aaron Rowand actually was Plan 1-A this offseason, and the Sox contacted him before they started talking numbers with Hunter to see if the sides were in the same neighborhood. They weren't even in the same area code. While no details were offered, preliminary talks with Rowand did not even get past the number of years. In other words, the man who patrolled center field like a Rottweiler for the Sox from 2001 to '05 likely will remain a memory in the minds of Sox fans while he entertains possible offers from the Rangers and Dodgers. The name that still is being whispered around U.S. Cellular Field is Boston's Coco Crisp.
