That's the thing, though...Gillaspie is probably best suited to a utility role, and there's really no reason to trade him. Who would you rather have on the bench at this point, Gillaspie or Konerko? Heck, if you give Semien the starting job at 2b you could platoon Beckham and Gillaspie, and who do we have to step in for Ramirez. Makes no sense to trade any of those guys just to keep Konerko on the roster.
