Perhaps this is why Tampa pulled out:
Aubrey Huff - OF - TB
According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the White Sox are trying hard to get Aubrey Huff and/or Danys Baez from the Devil Rays.
The White Sox may have to part with Brandon McCarthy to get either and definitely if they want to get both. Even though they're loaded with outfielders, the Rays may also want a member from the group of Brian Anderson, Chris Young and Ryan Sweeney. 2004 first-round pick Josh Fields, a third baseman, is another player sure to be involved in talks.

Chris Young is a pretty toolsy player who hasn't really shown much plate discipline and ability to hit for average thus far. The rest are fine, but I wouldn't want Young because we already have a superb athlete in the system in Elijah Dukes, who has been hitting for average. Fields has had a rough season, but can flat out mash the ball far. Like I said in another post, I would prefer to somehow get Hanley, but it seems like the Sox just won't let go. I'm not as high on Petit as others are, but McCarthy is a ways from Yusmeiro. I want a trade done for sure, but would've preferred something with NYM and BOS. Maybe we should just trade these two and Lugo to the Mets for Milledge and Petit...and then they can decide what they want to do with them.
