...why not go after Vizquel? I'm pretty sure he'll be a free agent at the end of the season so maybe go after him then. I'm not sure about his stats, but he's gotta be better offensively than Lenny's little prince.

The Sox don't have the best history when picking up Castoffs from Tribe Island.

No, lets leave Jose at SS. He has one more year on his deal, and then Tim takes his place.

I'd be all for Vizquel coming here. He's one of the best shortstops in the game!!

vizquel is my favorite non whitesox player. and guess what: we would have another gold glove caliber ss wearing 13.

but the downside is that hummel doesn't get his chance. this one has me torn.

how old is omar?

I'd take Visquel in a heartbeat. A great defensive SS (who's not an automatic out) would do wonders for this young pitching staff. As far as the Sox history with tribe castoffs goes...I still say they made the right choice in taking Alomar over Charles Johnson & his 5 year-$35 million deal. And the Lofton signing was a very low risk, one year deal. We have $3.5 mil wrapped up in Lofton/Alomar this year...I'll take that compared to the $6.5 that we'd be pissing away on CJ/Singleton instead.

I was just about to say that. I think he was a big help for the team, and Lofton and Alomar haven't been bad either.

Who are some guys who didn't work out?

He only set the White Sox single season records for HR & RBI. :D:

79 HR & 267 RBI in 2 seasons.
