Kenny says he has a plan

And I was afraid he doesn't:

In addition to sending top pitching prospects Gio Gonzalez and Fautino De Los Santos to the A's for Nick Swisher, the White Sox also traded veteran starter Jon Garland to the Angels for shortstop Orlando Cabrera in November.

Kenny Williams said he prepared himself for such a talent shift last off-season, when he stockpiled pitchers like Gonzalez, Gavin Floyd, Jon Danks and Nick Masset.

"Part of our plan going into the '06 off-season was pitching depth -- pitching depth to deal as well as pitching depth to use," said Williams, who added minor-league starters Lance Broadway and Jack Egbert are "knocking on the door."

Is this plan F? FF? FFF?

When discussing the Swisher trade one point many made was that Gio isn't all that is portrayed to be (HR tendencies, pitcher's park, repeated AA, didn't pitch in Charlotte's park etc.). OK, but don't tell me the pitching talent acquired last year Broadway, Floyd, and Masset will fill the pitching talent gap Gio and Fautino would have filled.
