White Sox - Acquired Pierre
Chicago White Sox - Acquired OF Juan Pierre from the Los Angeles Dodgers for two unnamed minor league pitchers.
This is Great News! For John McCain!
Well, it’s certainly not great news for White Sox fans. True, the White Sox only have to pay roughly $9 million of Pierre’s salary over the next two years, but that’s like getting shot 4 times instead of 8 times. Pierre did contribute in 2009 and fill-in pretty decently for Ramirez during the suspension, but the smart money is him returning to being the same crappy punch-and-judy hitter he’s been for years. It’s made even worse that while he has the speed to play centerfield, he’s a weaker thrower with his good arm than Pete Gray was with his bad one.
No pitchers have been named as of yet, but considering the Dodgers are essentially gaining $9 million for a 5th outfielder, the minor league pitchers would have to be serial killers or fullonrapists to make this a poor move for the Dodgers.
