The White Sox would never do that deal for Schmidt. Anderson and McCarthy have been rumored to be moved the past two trade deadlines and it didn't happen, They're both going nowhere. Anderson is our current and future CF, since July here are his stats hes coming out of a DEEP slump (.333BA .364OBP with a .840OPS.) and McCarthy will have a spot in our Rotation next year(McCarthy led the minors in Ks in 2004, and was leading the IL in Ks in 2005 despite pitching 40-50 innings with Chicago). Kenny Williams has stated numerous times the FO has adopted the braves philosophy of bringing in young talent when its a viable option. BP did an article on Brian Anderson and how elite his glove is hereOriginally Posted by Javy Pornstache
the fact that Olney and Stark wrote that article is laughable as a Sox fan.
The White Sox position of strength is our pitching both and the MLB and MILB level, with the likes of Haeger,Phillips,Broadway,Harrel,Liotta,Tracey,Vazq uez,Garland & Garcia. The Sox at this trade deadline will be looking for only one possibly two things. A 6th man out of the bullpen if Dustin Hermanson can't return to form after his rehad down at AAA, and prospects that will take over LF/Lead Off man role (Chris Denorfia ) by trading the likes of Cliff Politte/Augstin Montero/Boone Logan/Tim Redding or the previously mentioned pitching.
The Sox SP thus far out side of Jose, have underachieved for the first half and there is no where to go but up, we have the second best record in all of baseball and are the defending world champs. I like our odds in the post season and the fact that the wild card will be coming out of the central this year.
