Chicago White Sox
The Dodgers traded Juan Pierre and $10.5 million to the White Sox for two players to be named later.
This means that Chicago only has to pay $8 million, all owed next year, so they get a quality outfielder for $4 million a year.
YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!
Taking a break from Michigan preparing to open the season and the Free Press trying (and apparently failing) to run Rodriguez out of town, I remember that baseball season is still going on and the Detroit Tigers are in a pennant race. That makes this news the best news all week (unless you count Devin Gardner's continuing rise):
It appears that the White Sox have given up on the season, leaving only the hated Twins to contend with...who are now above .500 and only 3.5 games behind...crap...
