The Brian Anderson Era is Over on the South Side

Underachieving outfielder Brian Anderson has played his last game for the Sox–the White Sox that is.

BA was traded today to the Red Sox for veteran Mark Kotsay. Kotsay will report to the Pale Hose tomorrow and it appears that Anderson will be sent to AAA Pawtucket.

This is a matter of two players who wore out their welcome with their respective teams and wanted to be dealt. My guess is that Kotsay will replace Josh Fields, who likely will be sent to Charlotte or traded by the time Kotsay reports. The newest White Sox is primarily an outfielder (and a good one at that), but has also played first. Thus, my speculation that Josh is the one to go.

A real plus for the White Sox is that Kotsay is a career .373 hitter as a pinch-hitter, an area where the club has been sorely lacking this season. And he’s the kind of “grinder'” that Kenny Williams loves.
