White Sox get OF Casper Wells from Oakland for cash considerations

I think Casper Wells wears stirrups, right? If so it's a fantastic move.

As soon as he goes 2-for-4 in a game, a segment of WSI will be calling for him to hit cleanup.

As long as Brian Anderson doesn't get picked up before that happens.

Hell of a month for Casper.

On March 31, the Mariners DFA'ed him. Toronto picks him on April 10, activates him on the 12th, then DFA's him on the 15th. They trade him to Oakland on the 22nd, and they DFA'ed him on the 28th. And we get him on the 29th.

Month's not over yet...

Wells has a career obp 50 points better than Wise.
I doubt Wise is better than a single player on any major league roster.

Have you seen some of the other players on the Sox' roster?
