We all knew it was coming. A deal was immanent. The White Sox could not continue to have post season aspirations with a starting rotation that consisted of a collection of number 2&3 starters. (Buehrle, Loaiza, Garland, Schoeneweis, and the Diaz/Rauch combo) wasn't going to cut it come playoff time.
Loaiza looked shaky again today as the SouthSiders took care of the cubbies today 9-4
. Shortly after the game though, came the big new. The Sox had traded for Seattle's Freddy Garcia
The deal sends Miguel Olivo, Jeremy Reed
, and Michael Morse to the Mariners for Garcia, Ben Davis and Cash. The monetary values have not been announced. I'll have a full recap of the trade later tonight.
