Red Sox Trade Pitchers with White Sox

The Red Sox traded pitchers Willy Mota and Miguel Socolovich to the White Sox for pitcher David Aardsma. Last year Aadsma pitched in 25 games with an ERA of 6.40. He was a great prospect that did not work out in Chicago but is still only 26 years old. The addition brings the Sox up to 39 on the 40 man roster. Much like Miceli and Kolb, Aardsma will come to spring training looking for a permanent spot in the pen. He is another roll of the dice for Boston but if any of the 3 recent signings work out it will be all they need to have a solid bullpen in ’08.
