Seattle/ChiSox trade

The Mariners and White Sox traded disappointing former 1st rounders, with Seattle sending lefty Matt Thornton to the ChiSox for outfielder Joe Borchard.

I imagine Borchard will be the Mariners' 4th outfielder, while Thornton will be Chicago's second lefty in the pen.

An outfield of Borchard, Reed and Ichiro would be awfully impressive, defensively, if the Mariners decide to go that route.
