I thought the article was decent overall, but the my favorite part of the article and something I didn't realize is this:

Beckham: .234/.296/.371
AL: .249/.310/.372

While I am as frustrated with Beckham's hitting just as everyone else is on this site, this stat line doesn't make him seem so bad offensively compared to the rest of the AL. And I think his defense somewhat makes up for his lack of offense.

To go along with this here is an article by Rosenthal echoing many of the same sentiments.

This is the reason that not starting Beckham this year would be a mistake.

What I take from the opening of this article is:
Staying healthy is like Moneyball, it makes your team good, not great.

What's annoying about the national pundits is they always seem to assume the White Sox will suck. Like there's no middle ground between beating the Tigers for the division and finishing above .500.
