Coco to the White Sox for MacDougal?

By

If the Santana deal does not work out the Red Sox still have needs to fill and dealing Crisp can help them fill the needs. Boston still needs a backup catcher and some bullpen help. When the Cubs re-signed Kerry Wood the Red Sox were forced to look elsewhere for a solid relief pitcher. The White Sox are in need of a center fielder and they have some pitchers they may be willing to part with. The name mentioned by Tom Singer at MLB.com is Mike MacDougal. The White Sox reliever was a solid closer for the Royals and made the All-Star team in 2003 before going on the DL. He has not been consistent in the last few years and had problems getting outs down the stretch. In his last game he gave up 3 hits and 2 earned runs in 0.1 innings. If Boston gets the MacDougal who pitched for the Royals it would be a decent deal but if they get the MacDougal of the last 2 years the White Sox will be getting a bargain. Boston will be better off re-signing Timlin and getting a backup catcher for Coco or going after a better reliever than MacDougal.
