White Sox trade Matt Thornton to Red Sox

Cue up your bad puns about "changing his Sox", but the fact remains: Matt Thornton has been traded from the White Sox to the Red Sox. In return, Chicago gets Boston minor leaguer Brandon Jacobs.

Phillies looking for CF help

The Philadelphia Phillies were a team already in need of help but after Ben Revere broke his right ankle on a foul ball, they’re REALLY in need of help.
