The White Sox tonight designated Wilson Betemit for assignment. Chicago called up Gordon Beckham. He can, you know, actually play.

Betemit was hitting .200 with three RBI in 20 games. Sadly, that makes him roughly twice as good as Angel Berroa.

Meanwhile, will the Nate McLouth deal lead to a flurry of moves? I’ve always looked at it this way: If you need to make a trade, make it in June instead of July 31. It makes more sense to get better sooner than later.

They talked mainly about the decision to return Chien-Ming Wang to the rotation and put Phil Hughes in the bullpen. I talked to Hughes again after the game. He’s cool with the whole idea — just as long as they still consider him a starter long term.

Nobody grows up dreaming of being a set-up man, it seems.
