I hope Hahn isn't really thinking of going into the season with Wise, Danks, Gimenez, Sanchez and this lefty hitting utility infielder this season...

Under the radar?
Dayan moving over to first is an interesting idea and honestly might work especially since the White Sox appear to be rebuilding without explicitly saying so. The problem is if the White Sox allow Konerko to walk after this year that means that they will have let three fan favorites to leave in three consecutive years without bringing in anyone to really replace them. Now, from a baseball standpoint this might make sense but from a PR standpoint it might be a difficult pill to swallow.

Go Sox!!!
