Crap. I really liked this kid and thought he could be a star. Lefty with a 94-96 mph fastball and good curve and slider. KW you overpaid for a reliever buddy.
If Brandon and Broadway go then who do we have left for pitching prospects? noone!

This, about 25 minutes ago, says they were very close...could Soriano be coming next?

The White Sox, said the source, also are close to acquiring pitcher Mike MacDougal from the Royals in exchange for minor league pitcher Tyler Lumsden.

I found this at 2:30. Nothing that says "done deal," though.

McDougal has had success as a closer on a miserable team and helps a bullpen that has struggled throughout the year. If he stays healthy, and he's looked great in the four innings since returning, then he is one hell of an eighth inning guy. Pen is starting to take shape.

Lumsden helps when? Overpaid? Hardly.

Successful teams trade prospects for proven talent that helps them win now. This is a perfect trade for both teams.

The more I think about it...

MacDougal was out almost all of 2004 and so far has thrown 4 innings in 06. His career WHIP is close to 2, giving up 172 hits in 162 IP with a whole bunch of walks.

Not too sure this guy is the answer. But, I'm fairly certain KW and his crack staff of baseball experts know more than me.

An oft-injured pitcher who hasn't been very good when healthy for one of the 2 or 3 real pitching prospects in the minors. Sounds like a great deal.

...for 2 prospects. Nice as long as the prospects aren't A list

Edit: Score didn't report the prospects yet - I see Levine did. Not bad if true
