Fair point actually, I had no idea the Royals rotation had been that good so far.

Didn't Bourn still get 4/45? That would have been bad money too on an aging player.

He's been really good so far. Is it any worse than the deal we gave Peavy with his injury concerns? At least Bourn addresses a weakness.

Without Peavy, many would have considered the rotation a weakness. The fact that he gave the Sox a discount made him one of the most attractive options on the market.

In the list of areas to cast blame, these far outrank Hahn's performance:

JR's organizational philosophy of not investing in the scouting, drafting and player development system, in particular with regards to position players;

Relatedly, our inability to develop quality position players who can hit well in the majors;

Dunn's performance making his contract an albatross;

A legacy of lost trades, such as both Swisher deals, the Teahen deals, etc.

And Thome was the last acquired via trade. That was the off-season of '05-06.

Mark Gonzales
Peavy
going to test his back by throwing off a mound in a few minutes.

Daryl Van Schouwen
LF Dayan Viciedo (left oblique) off to AAA Charlotte for rehab stint. Hasn't played in 18 days. Will need four or five games there

EDIT:

He needs a lot more than that.

The last ones drafted that I can think of were Joe Crede and Aaron Rowand. They were drafted at least 15 years ago and broke into the majors more than 10 years ago. That's a long time since then for this franchise to crank out players like Josh Fields and Brian Anderson.

The Sox did trade for Carlos Quentin in 2008 and he had a monster year that season. His success here didn't last long, though.

Scott Merkin
Gavin Floyd will undergo season-ending surgery tomorrow in New York City to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his elbow.

Surgery will be performed by Dr. David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery ...

Expected recovery time for Floyd, 30, is approximately 14-19 months.

No, by traded I meant developed but then dealt away. Damn, if it is Crede/Rowand then that may mean they have had the worst farm system in baseball this decade.

Chicago White Sox ‏@whitesox 3h

#WhiteSox have claimed 1B Mike McDade off waivers from the @Indians and transferred Floyd to the 60-day DL.

Woo hoo, an ex Lansing Lugnut! I have some scorecards somewhere on a bookshelf with him in them. From what I remember of him in A-ball, he was big, slow, and struck out a lot. He'll fit in great.
