Man, if Sales is going to be competing for a starting job next year, that begs the question of what the hell are we going to do with Torres and Hudson. Hudson deserves the first jab at a starting job in my mind.
Now that I think about it, Garcia might not be back next year. Buehrle, too. Danks might decide not to sign. So now that I think about it, this makes sense. Now, don't get me wrong, I hope that the above doesn't happen (minus Garcia, since I think that Hudson needs to get his shot in the bigs), but it's certainly a possibility. White Sox upper management must be thinking the same thing, otherwise why would they be doing this?
