From the Wire….Cotts Acquired from the Sox for Aardsma

The Cubs Traded David Aardsma and Carlos Vasquez to the White Sox for Neal Cotts

According to several reports out of Chicago, the Cubs and Sox have traded relievers. The Cubs sent David Aardsma and Carlos Vasquez to the White Sox for reliever Neal Cotts. Cotts was 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA in 2005 but was 1-2 with a 5.17 ERA in 70 appearances last season.

Aardsma was acquired from the Giants in 2005 along with Jerome Williams for LaTroy Hawkins and Vasquez was signed by the Cubs in 2000 as a non-drafted free agent.

This was the first trade between the White Sox and the Cubs since 1998…. Jon Garland for Matt Karchner

Quote of the Day

You can’t create magic … don’t deserve magic until you play the game properly. It shouldn’t come your way. And, it won’t come your way. But, if you play the game properly, then all of a sudden, these little things start rolling in your direction and you start expecting them to happen on a daily basis because you’ve earned it.” – Joe Maddon
