Kahnle had many years of control left and Robertson was still an effective pitcher (Frazier wasn't very good, but he wasn't for most of his career either). Way too many Rule 5 players in these secondary trades.

The Sox can barely fill out a rotation...desperation time is the danger zone with Rick Hahn.
The caliber of prospects took a tumble because the Yankees took on all the salary of all the players sent by the White Sox. Unfortunately, that seemed to be the most important priority in the trade.
