White Sox Acquire Sisco For Gload

Baseball Digest Daily reports that the White Sox have acquired reliever Andy Sisco for first baseman/outfielder Ross Gload.

Seems like a big win for the Sox.  Sisco, a big lefty, turns 24 in January.  Since jumping from A ball to the Majors in ’05 as a Rule 5 pick from the Cubs, Sisco has been in over his head.  The White Sox could fix him up as a lights out reliever like they did with Matt Thornton, or else switch him back to starting.

How does Gload help the Royals?  He’ll turn 31 next season and the club has absolutely no room for another 1B/OF.  Shouldn’t Dayton Moore be stockpiling young arms instead of guys like Gload?
