Red Sox acquire Brian Anderson from White Sox.

Purely a depth move here, as Brian Anderson has been struggling to hit in Chicago. 

Once again. Depth. Insurance for Baldelli. We didn't acquire a guy with a .652 OPS over 862 PAs in order to trade Jacoby Ellsbury

In exchange, the White Sox will receive $$ and Mark Kotsay to bolster their bench. No official announcement to the effect has been made yet, but Anderson should be headed to Pawtucket unless someone is injured.
