De Aza is 30 this coming season. His stats are in a downward trend after a good start with the Sox. He's replaceable.

De Aza's 2012 stats:
.281.349.410.760
I think De Aza might need a change of scenery to get back to hitting like that. I'd be concerned a change of scenery for Viciedo might turn him into a 30+ HR all-star.
Giving up on Viciedo at age 24 is lunacy- he's younger than Eaton and Abreu- he definitely regressed last year- but he still has the potential to be a very goo LF or DH after Dunn leaves.

"When I heard the National Anthem it hit me," Jose Abreu said through White Sox spokesperson Lou Hernandez. "I love the Anthem. When I learn English Iím going to sing it."
