The Central Could Get Stronger

Uh oh, Soriano may be slugging for the ChiSox...soon.

Brandon McCarthy for Soriano seems to make enough sense, though I would have to question Kenny Williams slightly. Unless, that is, he's confident he can ink Soriano in the off-season.

The linked report also mentions another White Sox deal: acquiring Mike MacDougal from the Royals, which would fill the bullpen void left by McCarthy.

I do wonder, though, if the White Sox -- currently owners of the highest powered offense in the bigs -- would be better off trading for McDougal, planting McCarthy in the rotation, and seeking any kind of return on Freddie Garcia or Javier Vazquez.

I'll be waiting with bated breath.
