I retweeted one of his tweets earlier and it looks like he deleted it. Other insiders are saying deal not done but just about.
If Eaton is healthy and lives up to his Minor's numbers, this is a steal!!!
Angels expected to get Hector Santiago and Tlyer Skaggs in the 3 way trade, source confirms.

Source says the three-team deal is done.
Arizona gets trumbo, 2 PTBNL
Angels get Hector Santiago/Tyler Skaggs
White Sox get Adam Eaton
I mentioned this happening sometime last year that White Sox would get Adam Eaton somehow from the D-Backs. It ****ing happened, and it feels great. I absolutely love him and as long as he's healthy he is a future star at the top of the lineup. Amazing job. Proud of you Rick.
Pretty big fan of this trade. This opens up a spot for Erik Johnson and Eaton (if he stays healthy) should be that leadoff hitter we have been searching for.
I like it. Hopefully the PTBNL isn't anyone of any consequence.
I saw someone tweeted that the Sox may get a PTBNL in the deal as well.
Ok I looked at some more stats and watched some highlights, im on board with it. It's not like I seen Santiago as an afe anyway
Brandon Jacobs, who the Sox picked up from the Red Sox for Thornton is who will most likely be the player the Sox send to the DBacks. Not bad IMO.
Excellent move for the White Sox.
They turn a 4/5 starter into an everyday CFer.
