On post game live they said that Paulie could be headed to the DL, who would play first? Jim is to old, Jermaine could but are outfield isn't very good to start with. Maybe Josh? He went in for Pauly and did a decent job. Or I think we should go trade.

Fields will play 1st. They won't bring up Daryle Ward to start. Maybe as a backup.

I'd put Thome out there for at least a few games. I bet it would be Fields, though. This sucks MAJORLY if it happens, because we'll already be down a hitter the next 9 games after tomorrow due to the stupid NL rule that the pitcher has to bat. If Konerko goes down, we'd really be down ANOTHER hitter.

Yikes.

I hear that if it's a bone bruise, he's not going to go on the DL, much like most of last season when he played through it. He'll just suck at hitting for the rest of the season instead of letting Fields be terrible in his place.

Bring Allen up, why would we want to even consider Field's there.....anybody who thinks he is anything more then a AAA player at best is insane! A "power hitter" with no power who strikes out all the time and is hooible defensively....Name another guy in MLB like that...name one

Because Allen could use more time in the minors. You also want to see what you really have in Fields and by playing him he is being showcased as tradebait as well.

No thanks. I'd rather us plug in Josh and ride that wave than rush another young and promising player. I know, "Josh is terrible at everything, he sucks at life, can't field, worst everyday 3b in the ML." Just let him get in there and maybe, just maybe, we can get some value out of him after another hot streak like the couple he rode this season.

I think Brandon is close to ready, but is better off finishing this year out in AAA where he will be promoted to soon. He is one of my favorite prospects and I'd be afraid to rush a player that isn't as highly touted as the can't miss Beckhams and Wieters.

This season is getting worse and worse...

If the ligament is torn, that's probably 4-6 weeks, maybe longer.

I hate to say it but with Paul and Quentin out indefinitely, there's no reason not to bring up some prospects to see what they can do and bench or send down the kids on the roster now who aren't getting it done. I'd like to see at least Brandon Allen and Jordan Danks called up before September, maybe even waive Nix and his .208 average and bring up Treybone Shelby too.

May as well bring something constructive out of this season... If we keep putting out the non-producing "prospects" day after day with no consequences, IMO 2007 will look like a good season in comparison.

I'm fine with calling Allen up, but that's where the line should be drawn.

Shelby is only hitting .243 on a stacked AA team. I'm not really sure what he could contribute to the major league club.

Calling up Danks this season would most likely be one of those detrimental rush-jobs the Sox are so famous for. Danks has only played 26 games above A-ball and he was never advertised as being anything as close to polished as Beckham. Let's give him some time.

This is Allen's 6th season in the White Sox minor league system. They have moved him along slowly which seems to have paid off. Judging by his stats and reports, he seems to be very close. I don't think calling him up would do any damage to his development.

Unfortunately I think you're right. It's a shame too because of how bad this division is. I was talking with my dad after tonight's game and he put it pretty good: They're still not out of it, but only because everyone else is so bad. They aren't going to do much of anything this year, and I think Kenny needs to start getting ready for next season.

If Konerko goes on the DL, call up Allen. Besides, I like Sox first basemen with that last name.

I would love to see the look on Fields' face. I'd love to hear his next remark.

He's had a couple of periods where he got a couple of hits, but by no means has he had a "hot streak."

I don't know Nellie, those first few weeks he looked like his bat might just make up for his glove and he looked like he found his stroke again in late May. I guess mini hot streaks would be a more appropriate labeling, but he has had some stretches where I thought he might really have a future after all. Regardless, and like you said, I just want to see that, "last chance make the most of it," given to him.

This Paulie injury hurts a bit more seeing how he was probably our best trading chip (one that makes sense of course) if we have to go into white flag mode. Which, btw, I still won't advocate at this point, just stating the obvious. I'm sure Anaheim would have loved to upgrade their 1b situation just to charge the ever-present rumor.

I don't know if "excellent" is the right word, but I agree he's underrated and he has come a loooooong way in the past five years or so. Maybe it's something he's consciously worked on, or maybe it's just because it's not Manos and Royce The Choice making toss after toss in the dirt; either way, it's working.

Well, Ramirez likes to throw the ball in the dirt on every double play attempt. And I totally agree with Paulie being underrated defensively. That's the main reason I don't want to see him replace Thome at DH. He can pick the ball out of the dirt like it's nothing.
