It's like wife swap, but with outfielders

The Red Sox are wheeling and dealing to try and get back into the lead of the AL East division. However, their latest transaction before the trade deadline is a little underwhelming...

In a swap of outfielders, the Boston Red Sox traded Mark Kotsay and cash to the Chicago White Sox for Brian Anderson on Tuesday.

Boston is second in the A.L. East, and designated Kotsay for assignment last week. The White Sox are second in the A.L. Central and sent Anderson to Triple-A last week.

Kotsay hit .257 with one home run and five RBIs in 27 games for the Red Sox this year. He started out the season on the disabled list while recovering from back surgery.

Anderson was hitting .238 with two homers and 13 RBIs when the White Sox sent him down to Triple-A Charlotte.

Woo! If that doesn't get you excited as a Sox fan I don't know what will.

... well except for signing Adrian Gonzalez and Roy Halladay.
