Swish a Sock
So, what do all the rest of you think about this deal? Chicago moves their top two pitching prospects in Gio Gonzalez and Fautino De Los Santos and their #1 or #2 hitting prospect in Ryan Sweeney, but they pick up an instant fan favorite and a #2 hitter to fill in the massive CF hole with Swisher.
I imagine Crede will be traded shortly enough for pitching.

A's fan here. I gotta be honest - i'm unhappy. Sox gotta good player all-around, on the field, in the box and in the clubhouse. A's lost good, fairly young talent they just signed to a mid-range contract. They're giving up on the next 3 years.
