Nick Swisher traded to White Sox

In some big, non-Sox/non-Santana news, the Oakland Athletics traded outfielder Nick Swisher to the White Sox for left-handed pitcher Gio Gonzalez, right-handed pitcher Fautino De Los Santos and outfielder Ryan Sweeney.

Some AN faithful aren't very happy. Some are.

I couldn't imagine following a team like this, where a star couldn't be traded in a minute just to save some cap room. The A's seem to be building down, but they've got to be back up at some point, right?
