Ok, not the HOFer they traded away couple of years ago, but the same last name. (http://voices.suntimes.com/sports/white-sox-acquire-minor-league-pitcher/)

Does our front office know that, or did they trade for the wrong guy again?

When did they trade for wrong guy?

From an old WSI article:

“When the Sox announced the trade of James Baldwin to the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday afternoon, the Sox issued a press release stating that the Sox had obtained three minor league pitchers in the deal: Onan Masaoka, Gary Majewski, and Jon Berry.

Now it's bad enough that the Sox are getting Majewski back after three months or so after the player they traded him for, Antonio Osuna went on the disabled list for the rest of the season, but what made this whole thing intolerable is the press release that followed. After telling the world about how they liked Berry's arm and how he was a good young prospect, the Sox announced that they hadn't traded for the pitcher at all. Instead, the Dodgers had traded Jeff Barry, a 32-year-old outfielder who was last seen in Japan before coming to the Dodgers farm system.

Williams acknowledged that there was a mix-up. The Sox had been looking at Berry's stats and assumed that's whose name was on the table, not Barry. Williams said, "The deal stands.”

In any other organization, Kenny would have been fired that day.

And considering that happened in 2001, we'd probably have been worse off for it

Two-thirds of the teams in major league baseball haven't won the World Series this century, and the White Sox, with Kenny Williams not having been fired for the mistake, are among the one-third that have.

It is distinctly reported that this transaction had nothing to do with the Crain deal, but I find it odd that Crain was activated from the 60-day DL the day after.

I once saw Kenny Williams buying a Sorny TV at a gas station out some guys van, he didn't seem to care that it was a Sorny not a Sony.

De Los Santos was on the Rays' 40-man roster and they needed to open up a spot for Crain

That makes sense. I'm still hoping the Sox get something for Crain other than salary relief.

Probably tickets for Williams and Hahn to any playoff games in Tmpa.
