...MacPhail, please take note.
Nick Swisher was traded to the White Sox for Gio Gonzalez, Fautino De Los Santos, and Ryan Sweeney.
That's one fantastic starter, #3 or reliever, and a forth outfielder type. Not bad, but I'm surprised they didn't get more for Swisher. The guy can hit and draw walks with the best of them (esque).
This is what a rebuilding team looks like. Haren's gone, Blanton, Street, and Mark Ellis will soon be gone as well. In return, they got all young, all under control for a long time players who will help the club win in the next two to three years. That's what the Orioles need to do. Come on, MacPhail. We have faith in you, but watching other teams improve is getting a little annoying.
