Tyler Flowers and Dayan Viciedo are not every day players. Our bench isn't even bench quality. Konerko's been regressing for years. De Aza is a minor league journeyman who's enjoyed one decent season. These are things that the general manager needs to look at and address. Hahn chose to sit on his hands.
He needs to be held accountable.
I'm OK blaming Hahn for not re-signing AJ.
But give him credit for acquiring Gillaspie, who originally was on the bench but has performed well as the starter.
Paulie has not "been regressing for years." To claim otherwise is BS.
DeAza had a productive 2012; there was no reason to believe he would forget how to hit.
Viciedo had a productive 2012; there was no way to predict he would get hurt.
