Agree - our bench depth was below average before the Konerko injury- and concussions do have a way of lingering. Robin has been running the regulars out there very day and they need a periodic breather (one at a time not the "Ozzie Sunday lineup" option). Overall I ilke the starting team but we have zero depth behind them- its time to get an corner outfielder / first baseman who can step in periodically for PK, Youk, etc. The time is now whether you DL Konerko or release O-Dog or send Jordan Danks down.

We need a middle infielder upgrade too.

I know these moves are easier said than done, but this team is "close" to playoff quality but realistically may be a bench player or two away.
