I'm OK with this- in all likelihood they will do everything they can to unload Adam Dunn as soon as they can- which will open up DH ABs for Paulie- I'd want him as the DH vs. LHs anyway.

Clogs up the bench a little bit- but he's one of the top White Sox players of my lifetime- so I don't mind one more year of his influence in the locker room.

This also clearly leaves the ball in PKs court- so if he DOES decide to retire- there's not controversy, etc.

I'm a little biased towards keeping veterans like this around- even when Fisk was REALLY bad in 1993- I still thought they were a better team with him on the roster- than they were after releasing him in Cleveland.
