In a move that jumped out of the bushes and is completely un-Ray-lated, the White Sox have traded starter Brandon McCarthy to Texas for top prospects John Danks and Nick Masset, yet it's completely related. Why?
To me this could be either side beefing up their offer for Rocco, the Whitesox now have Danks and Masset, a starter and reliever, both are close to MLB ready, and the Rangers have B-Mac who has been rumored to be an object enamored by the Rays in past trade rumors, usually with Carl Crawford involved.
Speaking of the Rangers, they have signed old friend Jared Sandberg to a minor league deal.
Stay on DRB for the updates (if any) that come from the aftershock of this deal.
