Good lord.

So much for a serious effort to upgrade the bench. ONe of the biggest holes on the team was a lack of bench-bat. Hahn (or whoever is pulling his strings) comes up with a career .260 OBP hitter.
Purely Ridiculous.

Wise may be a nice guy... I don't know. I can say though, that I can't ever remember a time I've been happy he's on the roster. ugh.

Not even when he made "the catch?"

Obviously this is not a move to sell tickets, but for the role he is expected to play I won't complain.

Not even after the 26th out of Buehrle's perfecto?

Had anyone said anything about trading De Asa [sic]? I feel this is a bogus rumor you've just made up to justify getting angry over something any sensible person would just kind of shrug off.

I don't know if the rumor was "bogus", but I do remember reading somewhere that the White Sox were thinking of trading De Aza. Or maybe Hahn was just putting out feelers for how valuable he is. Dunno.

When Dunn's deal is done, I hope Hahn will stock the roster with more than three starting-caliber OFs, to allow the DH spot to be used to give starters a break.

When you have two high-dollar starting sluggers who can only play 1B and DH, and your owner effectively caps payroll, it limits roster and payroll flexibility.
