The White Sox made a couple of late night moves to acquire former Cubs pitcher/wide receiver Jeff Samardzija and former Yankees closer David Robertson.Â So far, the Sox have been very active this offseason, picking up mostly a cast of mediocrities, so getting two real pitchers is a nice change of pace.
When MLB Network posted the list of Sox offseason acquisitions, something jumped out at me.Â And then, thinking of the offseason the Bulls (also owned by Jerry Reinsdorf) had…well, I’m sure this is just coincidence.
See if you can spot a trend:

Oops.Â Forgot one.
You know, I can’t quite put my finger on it.
