Lots of bias in this thread, so I'll add my own.
Konerko was abysmal in the second half. He was really bad.
AJ's defense is abysmal. He improved at throwing runners out, but his pitch calling has really fallen off. He won't call pitches in the dirt because he can't block them. He can't move behind the plate anymore.
Viciedo's discipline has improved at every level. There's no reason to not believe he won't do the same here. His defense is adequate. Lee was much worse in LF.
Ramirez continues to be undervalued. He's an awesome defender and drives in runs.
Beckham isn't the defender most would lead you to believe, but he definitely did enough to earn another shot.
