ESPN.com - MLB - Rangers get McCarthy from ChiSox in five-player deal
Is this the move of a man who thinks the White Sox will win the division in 2007? It certainly didn't make the current squad any better.
I was excited to see McCarthy in the rotation this year. He's pitched some great games as a starter and it would have been interesting to see what he could do with a full year in the rotation.
McCarthy was good, young and cheap. And you trade him for three prospects? I understand Danks has a very high ceiling but the move doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Maybe Kenny has another move in the works that will make everything clear. But right now I would have to give this move a thumbs down.
