The Vazquez Trade: Can Anyone Get This Right?

Well, at this point in the night I have no idea who the White Sox acquired from the Braves for Javier Vazquez and Boone Logan. Amazingly, I am still unsure about who the White Sox got in return. The three following scenarios have been reported:

White Sox get (ESPN.com)
-Brent Lillibridge
-JoJo Reyes
-top prospect

White Sox get (Foxsports.com)
-Brent Lillibridge
-Tyler Flowers
-2 minor leaguers

White Sox get (Atlanta Journal Constitution)
-Brent Lillibridge
-Tyler Flowers
-Jon Gilmore
-Sergio Rodriguez

Geez, how different scenarios can we get? How can three news agencies have such different proposals? I know the hot stove is non existent, but c'mon, this is ridiculous. All I know is that Brent Lillibridge better pack his bags.

More analysis of this deal tomorrow, but here's a few teasers:
-As a Met fan, I love this deal.
-And the Kenny Williams genius watch MIGHT be officially back on

Why do you love this deal???? Vazquez is a good pitcher???

Vazquez can be a good pitcher, but he has been just average in recent seasons. And on top of it all, he's terrible in clutch situations.

I cannot wait for the Vazquez meltdown in September.
