With Loaiza coming back, I'm wondering what MacDougal's future is in this organization? It's not every day that you have a player making $2-3 million sitting in AAA.

He may have struggled the past year, but he should have gotten the first shot to come back if they sent Wasserman out, not a guy cut by a team dying for pitching.

He got the first shot - he went to AAA to work out his issues and he pitched worse. His salary is a sunk cost - shouldn't be relevant in a decision.
what team is "dying for pitching"?

Uh, MacDougal was on the Opening Day roster and he stunk up the place. I'd rather have his $2-3 million sitting in AAA than igniting our bullpen. And we have the best ERA in baseball, so I'm sure we're exactly hurting for pitching.

**** MacDougal. Let him rot in Charlotte just in case we have a rash of injuries and desperately need an arm, but if I never see him on the Sox again, I'll somehow survive.

I agree and I'll be happy to never see MacDoodle again.

I'm also in the club that never wants to see MacDougal in a Sox uniform again. I hate pitchers who cannot throw strikes.

I'd rather see Loaiza give up a two-run HR with a six-run lead than watch MacDougal walk the bases loaded with a six-run lead. If a guy gets beat throwing strikes, I don't like it of course, but I can live with the results.

Mike MacDougal gives me hives. If it costs $2-3 million to ensure he never, EVER pitches for the White Sox again, its money well spent.

He's gotta be the wealthiest player in AAA. I hope he's taking some of those younger kids out to eat every so often!

How could he do that? Even if he can find the restaurant, there's no way he'll find the plate.:tongue:

Anyone want to pitch in and contribute to the "Buy Out MacDougal's Contract So The Sox Can Release Him" Fund?

For a couple of years people have hoped, cheered, and argued that Mac is a great reliever with a track record and a potential worth hoping for.

I say "Dream on." Not going to happen. For whatever reason he lost it a long time ago. Forget him. hey-hey-good-bye!

Most teams in MLB who aren't the White Sox. It is great to be confident in EVERYONE in our pitching staff. KW did a great job in stocking that staff, and Coop does a wonderful job keeping them sharp.

OH! Ouch!! But I agree! Funny, I just said to my husband tonight that I'm so glad we don't have to worry about McDougal coming in to the games anymore because I just wanted to cry every time! I feel bad saying that - and I hope he can do well somewhere else. But not here! Ever. Again!

Betcha Loaiza doesn't last the season from what I saw 6/6. MacDougal throws some nasty s-word. Some day, somewhere, the light bulb's going to go on for him. It still might be here. Right now, it's mighty dim, but never say never.

Exactly. Let some team watch video of his glory days and have the pitching coach tell their GM "I can fix this guy. I say take a chance on him."

If it doesn't go on for him, what's next, Birmingham? (half teal)

Him and his scruffy beard and always looking like he's been up for 72 hours straight can totally play the part.
