Love Connection!  Iguchi signs with Sox!

filed by George Bova

January 24,2005

You know it has been a very successful off-season when the most obvious hole in the roster is who be back up shortstop.  That's pretty much all that is left now that Willie Harris has been given a utility role following today's newest Sox acquisition.

It was already Tuesday in Kyodo when news first broke that our White Sox had completed the love connection for secondbasemen Tadahito Iguchi.  Yeah, the sources on this were pretty shaky until the White Sox themselves confirmed it, pending his physical.  But considering that "credible sources" is usually defined to include some of this winter's worst gossip-mongers, like the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Daily News, these sources are plenty good enough.  Iguchi figures to bat #2 and give manager Ozzie Guillen plenty of versatility both in the line up and in the field.  Jerry Manuel must be insanely jealous.

It's a two-year deal for $2.5 million and club option third.  In the time since the Sox decided to trade Carlos Lee, they've acquired outfielder and lead-off man Scott Podsednik, reliever Luis Vizcaino, and free agent pitcher El Duque Hernandez, and catcher A.J. Pierzynski.  That's a lot of roster holes filled for the price of losing just El Caballo.  Nicely played, Mr. Williams.
