This is a joke right? Hawk is trying to pull one over on us...or did they also re-hire Ozzie?

That just shows there really wasn't a market for Frankie's services. But, the White Sox, Really?

Wow. In division to a rival. Twins must think he's not going to resign with the Sox after the season is done. So are these minor leaguers any good?

Seriously? you can't trade him to a division rival- especially not Chicago. What a shot to the gut for Twins fans.

Unless these prospects are top notch this is a despicable move by Terry Ryan. To the pale hose, really?

Chicago minor league player rankings from baseball reference: 14) Eduardo Escobar, SS, Grade C: Slick glove at shortstop got him to the majors, but weak on-base skills and below-average power will prevent him from starting for a first-division team. Hernandez is a others to watch.

I guess its better than nothing. But not much. If the Chisox turn him into a winner, its not going to look good for Gardenhire and Anderson.
