Really down on this trade at the moment. I don't know what to think of Gavin Floyd, but if the Sox are so high on Gonzalez, why did they trade him in the first place? Is he the new Majewski?

Garcia is extremely underrated around here posting similar numbers to "King" Jon Garland (who some people wouldn't deal for A-Rod or Manny. )

This better be part of a bigger deal. Right now it's a grade A noodle scratcher.

If thats the case then why even make a trade? He said himself he wouldn't make a trade just to trade.

KW better prepare for some harsh treatment by fans again at Sox Fest, this is an absurd trade. Gaving Floyd has not proven a thing. And Gio is still a few years away.

He was the #4 overall pick in 2001. And he apparently had a terrific spring last year. This move makes some sense to me. KW said this is what he was going for. It's a very risky move, but ifit pays off, you get 2 starting pitchers very cheap for many years.

The Chicago White Sox have traded pitcher Freddy Garcia to the Philadelphia Phillies for pitcher Gavin Floyd and a player to be named.
A story is upcoming.

I don't know much about Floyd, outside of a Phillies' fan here said he was a hot prospect, but hasn't done much. Is there something I'm missing?????

Salary dump. No matter what you may think about the market for pitchers, you'd have to say that -- despite everything the franchise has accomplished during the past 2 years -- we're still in the land of salary dump. And that's pretty disappointing.

Unless, of course, something else is planned.

The people over at Phillie Phans hate this trade as much as we do.

What is Kenny doing? This is a horrible trade. The only way this will make any sense is if this is a precursor to a bigger deal.
