    For Matt Thornton. Pretty much a couple of teams trading bust prospects.

    TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox have acquired left-handed pitcher Matt Thornton from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for outfielder Joe Borchard.

    Thornton, 29, went 0-4 with a 5.21 ERA (33 ER/57.0 IP) and 57 strikeouts in 55 relief appearances with the Mariners in 2005. He also limited opponents to a .248 (54-218) average.

    The 6-foot-6, 235-pounder is 1-6 with a 4.82 ERA (48 ER/89.2 IP) in 74 appearances (one start) in two major-league seasons with Seattle (2004-05). Thornton was originally selected by the Mariners in the first round (22nd overall) of the 1998 First-Year Player Draft.

    Borchard, 27, spent most of the 2005 season at Class AAA Charlotte, hitting .263 (130-494) with 29 home runs and 67 RBI. He also played in seven games with the White Sox, going 5-12 (.417) with two doubles.

    The 6-foot-4, 230-pound switch-hitter is a career .191 (57-298) hitter with 12 home runs and 30 RBI in 102 games with the White Sox from 2002-05. He was selected by the Sox in the first round (12th overall) of the June First-Year Player Draft.

      Yeah... its not much a suprise because if they didnt bring him up at the begining of the season Joe had the option to walk away and go into Free Agency...

        That $5 milion signing bonus sure went to waste.
