Says Podsednik is probably really only a .325-.330 OBP guy

Neyer completely disregarded the possibility of the White Sox signing CLement or Odalis or Luis Vizcaino and what he could do for our bullpen.

I dissagree with his Podsednik assessment because he has clearly had troubles at Miller Park and I think getting him away from there could lead to a 15 to possibly even 40 point OBP increase without accounting for a new plate attitude compared to last year. In 2003, his OBP at home was .350 and over .400 on the road, so I dont see why leaving Miller Park for good couldnt help his OBP rise 20 points and then see it rise some more with rebounding from last year's bad year.

They were saying how Carlos Lee is the perfect guy you want on a team, better than Richie Sexson who will be getting 8 figures. He said Podsednik has wheels, but never gets on base to use them, and Lee will produce alot better. Also, Kenny asked him if they should expect the rookie Podsednik or the second year version and he answered with something in the middle.

he must have done something right last year to steal 70 bases

Seriously, some people wouldn't know a joke or sarcasm if it smacked them in the face.

I too like Neyer - he's always been professional and polite.

He's also more knowledgable about baseball than Gammons...

Can we trade Konerko for Alex Sanchez and just put us all out of our misery?

Podsenik (Age 29 05) 1224 AB, .275 BA, .343 OBP, .400 Slg
Lee (Age 29 in 05) 3328 AB, .288 BA, .340 OBP, .488 Slg

Sanchez (Age 29 in 05) 1351 AB, .292 BA, .364 OBP, .364 Slg
Konerko (Age 29 in 05) 3420 AB, .278 BA, .345 OBP, .481 Slg

I guess we need to construct a team of players which match the abilities of (mis)management:

Ozzie Guillen 6686 AB, .264 BA, .287 OBP, .338 Slg
Kenny Williams 1154 AB, .218 BA, .269 OBP, .339 Slg
