I am fairly certain that Wise's catch was the 25th out. I believe the 26th out was a strikeout where Buehrle came back from a 3-1 count.

Yup.

If the Sox truly aren't going to spend a lot of money this offseason then this is about as good as you can do for a backup outfielder. As many have mentioned there is a lot of offseason left. This one move is not going to make or break it.

I think bench players are very important for the White Sox because they rarely have a strong AAA team that has readily available players. I think the organization needs to build some depth around the starting unit. Wise is a very adequate back-up for DeAza. He is not for LF and RF. So if there is not an adequate corner outfielder in AAA next year that could hopefully fill-in, then Wise is a poor choice as the 4th outfielder.
I would also be concerned that usually the 5th infielder is also a weak offensive player and it seems like the White Sox back-up catcher may be as well. If Wise is your best offensive threat on the bench, that may make him the 22nd player on roster not the 25th.

If they trade De Asa and make this ass clown the centerfielder then then I have to re-evaluate my loyalty to this team.

"I'm all through doing favors for the White Sox".

Dewayne Wise after 2010 season.

Rick Hahn will probably wind up being just another one of Reinsdorf's lap dogs like everyone else in his employ!!!!

Sorry I misspelled De Asa......still have bad keyboard!!

This is literally no different than signing Fukudome lat January. I don't know why some people seem to expect to have 4th or 5th outfielders that will hit .280 with modest power and a nice OBP, because then they wouldn't be 4th outfielders. Wise is a veteran who is well liked in the clubhouse, Danks is a 26 year old rookie who has 15 hits in the Major Leagues. Put away the pitchforks, folks.

I'm good with this signing and look forward to what he can contribute.

Good move. I like Wise as a backup. Plus, it keeps him away from other teams. He is a Sox-killer!

I would prefer to go with someone who can play a major league caliber outfield on defense for my 4th outfielder.

I can't even tell if you are insulting me or not, but I am happy with Wise as our 4th outfielder. He plays solid defense and offensively he knows which end of the bat to hold.

He couldn't even lay down a bunt at the end of the season. Let's review something. The Sox coughed up the division to the Tigers and lost BUT they went out and signed Torii Hunter, another sox killer, who's back in our division but the White Sox signed journeyman, DeWayne Wise and mark my words, the Sox love this guy and he will see a lot of playing time let's see where that batting average is next year and see his other stats...BTW, I'm sure you're a good guy, Mr Jinx. Our opinions just differ....Go Sox

Oh I take no offense at all, good folks can disagree!

I don't think the outfield is a weakness for the Sox, so I don't mind them signing a decent 4th outfielder. Now would I like them to try and sign a real 2nd or 3rd baseman? Well yeah. Compared to the Tigers, yes, they are falling behind. But it isn't due to signing Wise for pennies (in MLB terms).

I wish they would.

I can find 20 4th outfielders with an OBP better than .290 and career .263.
