I imagine will fill the 3rd base hole via a trade or free agency. I can't see them just throwing anyone out there.

I can. There's a reason Rich Lindberg named his book on the history of the White Sox "Who's on Third".

Chris Snopek, Greg Norton, Eddie Williams, Kenny Williams, Tim Hulett, Lorenzo Gray, Junior Moore are some of the forgettable names that come to mind for me that have been tried from the last 30 years or so.

Robin Ventura and Joe Crede have spoiled us.

EDIT: I left Orlando Hudson off my original list, because I have tried hard to blot that six week period out of my memory.

The "Milk Man" was actually pretty solid for us the short time he was here. Much better than a lot of the other names listed here. Herb did a nice job at 3B when it became clear that Norton couldn't handle the position.

Wha? Smokin' Herb Perry was the MAN. He had some huge hits for the Sox in that 2000 division title season. And though he was big and slow, he wasn't a butcher at 3rd either.

I was fond of the Chris Sabo "era". Nobody wore the goggles quite like him.

Yes the human mind has a self defense mechanism that blocks unpleasurable events out of our minds. This would be one of them

Interesting.

Looks like Hahn has some irons in the fire. We'll have to see how some of the FA's shake out first, though.

I liked Aurelio Rodriguez, the late inning defensive replacement.
