    Swisher for Marquez? GREAT deal for the Yankees. Where you at Walt?
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    That does seem like a great deal for New York, unless I'm missing something with Marquez.

    If Marquez is the whole return, the Reds missed a big opportunity. I have to think something else is coming back to Chicago though.

    So Willingham/Olsen for nothing and Swisher for nothing is two deals I wish Walt would have done.

    Bummer, good solid players being dealt away right and left for nominal returns and again Walt sits on his hands doing nothing. Pretends at the outset of FA that we could really do something and then looks only for guys (0-3 guys) or resurrection types who we aren't likely to obtain or don't want anyway.

    I think the money involved was a mitigating factor concerning who the Yanks gave up.

    I love how everyone just assumes Walt is sitting at home eating pizza and watching movies, completely out of touch with what's going on

    Swisher had a fiasco of a season last year. Maybe some teams aren't big fans of guys "bulking up" their stats in Oakland and then bottoming out after they leave.

    Just a theory.

    Per Rosenthal:

    The exact players going back to the White Sox are not yet known, but sources say the White Sox will be receiving two minor leaguers and one major-league reserve. ESPN.com is reporting that Yankees Class AAA right-hander Jeff Marquez is in the deal.

    One decent option off the table. I'm not optimistic about our chances to get a real impact bat.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
