Well, this offseason again sucks.

 

Danks or Floyd will be in our rotation this year.

 

Ozzie's personal bias against McCarthy clearly had a part in this...because there's not much other reason to trade a quality young pitcher.

 

Hello, 3rd or 4th place in the AL Central.

Wow! I have to say that I'm shocked.

 

McCarthy was ready to step into the rotation, and while I know those pitchers they got back may be ready to pitch in the majors, and have good upside as well....what does this mean for next season ? Are we taking a step back, still a good team though, to hopefully watching all these young pitchers develop into big time players in the future.

 

What is the rotation next season with all these changes and where does Mark Buerhle fit ? Is he going to be moved before long ?

Honestly, does anyone see us making the playoffs with Floyd or Danks in the rotation?

 

Don't get me wrong, I like having Danks. The guy's supposed to be amazing one day, but this is going to cost us in 2007.

I don't get this trade at all.

This team is way too good to be stocking up on prospects and taking away from a possible world championship team.

 

It's like we're almost rebuilding, except we're really good.

That's kind of how I feel. I'm sure the White Sox wouldn't have made this trade if they weren't convinced these guys are going to be potentially top of the rotation starters, but we've moved Garcia and McCarthy now, and I don't think Mark Burehle is going to be here much longer either.

 

I think with the current team, we're going to be in the race, but the more young pitchers we count on for next season, the less chance we have of being a playoff contender.

I think I see the logic here. We're "good enough" to compete in the toughest division in baseball (so we'll still draw fans), but we're clearly not good enough anymore to actually make the playoffs/make a run at the WS again.

Who was McCarthy overpowering last year? no one. if someone wants to give up a ton of "win later" for just SOME "win now"... you do it.

I've got to say if this deal is final, then jebus christ.

 

We'll have a rotation of Jose, Mark, Garland, Javy, ...???? Then it's back to all the years before '05 where we bring in journeymen or give Floyd, Danks or any other minor leaguer a shot?
