****, take half of the $13 million he's made this season and offer it to AJ to come back. He at least can still hit.
This is the White Sox. Sentimentality is a big part of this organization. I can definitely see him coming back.
Remember, Jim Thome wanted to come back here for a $1M, 1 year contract at a similar point in his career (his $13M/yr contract had just ended and he was at the tail end of his career. Konerko might come back for that kind of deal.
Since the Sox don't have any star slugging 1B/DH that Paulie is blocking, I wouldn't be surprised to see him back.
