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.
Maybe this is the point where you have to overpay. I am sure the wavier wire has someone out there that can help the club. Yes they may be over priced but now is the time you have to do what you have to do. This is the type of club that can compete in the playoffs but they have to get there first.
