JJ SSenior Writer IJuly 31, 2008

Early yesterday morning, at 2:00 AM, rumors were swirling around the White Sox.

There was talk of a massive, three-team trade involving the White Sox, Athletics, and Dodgers that would send closer Huston Street to the South Side, shortstop Orlando Cabrera to Los Angeles, and prospects to the Athletics.

Nick Swisher's name was even bandied about in talks. Everything was pointing to a nail-biting, insane finish to the non-waiver trading period that ended Thursday at 3:00 PM CST.

Well, there isn't going to be a new Street in Chicago, but there is a new "Kid" on the block.
