Looks like Jordan Danks can unpack his suitcase for a long stay here.

Well it's almost July. Fukudome has typically only played well in April, May, and June.

If you'd factor in how he declines through the season based on what he's done this for, he'd have a batting average at the end of the season that would make Dunn's effort last year look Herculean.

This was such a low risk move it doesn't matter.

He was a pretty good signing for $1 mil. As it turns out, he had nothing left and the Sox were able to cut him with only half a million to eat. I knew he wouldn't be starter here, but I was hoping for him to come out of the gate on fire as he did the last four years. He would have gotten much more playing time helped win more game in April before he inevitably turned into a pumpkin again.

Coulda been us signing you for $12.5M X 4. Glad it wasn't. Bye.

It was worth a try at the beginning of the season but he's done nothing to earn a spot of the roster. Time to give the youth a chance.

I appreciate the fact that he is leaving if that counts.

I look forward to the day when I can tell my grandkids that I was present on June 3, 2012 to see Fukodome's last game as a member of the Sox. When people ask, "where were you when Fukodome scored from third on a bases loaded walk only to be replaced by Eduardo Escobar in left in the top of the following inning?" I'll know I was at the Cell and have the scorecard and ticket stub to prove it. Sweet memories.

Yep, saw this coming. Fukudome couldn't hit the ball out of the infield for the first two months of the season.

Heh, heh. I was at that game too. Crossed my mind today that I witnessed Fukudome's last moments in a White Sox uniform in person.

We had Fukudome? Oh. See ya. Thankfully we didn't get him the first time.

Well, I still think the saying I can make out of your last name is awesome.

It could have been his last appearance in a Major League uniform. I wonder if anyone will sign him to a Major League contract. He might still get one more shot, definitely a Spring Training invite somewhere though.

Amazing the perspective 4 months can bring.
