I don't really see a scenario where Beckham is with the Sox after 2014- between Garcia, Semian and Micah Johnson- I think we're covered at 2nd base for 2015- they all need another year of development and I think Hahn was hopeful that Beckham could bring some trade value this year- which led to the one yer deal for Gordon.
I was still optimistic for Gordon to finally combine his defense with a solid season on offense (showed some positive signs around the injuries last year)- but he's looking pretty brittle and injury prone at this stage.
