Post Viciedo Ready?

http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news...s_cws&c_id=cws

Could Kenny have a trade in the works to clear a spot for Dayan?

Sounds like Kenny wants him to replace Pierre but Ozzie doesn't agree.

I don't think it's that simple.

I get the impression that Williams would like to see an outfield of Viciedo, Rios and Quentin. There isn't a leadoff hitter out of the outfield, and your DH as well isn't going to be a leadoff hitter. It isn't just a matter of replacing Pierre with Viciedo. It's a matter of finding a leadoff man from your infield, and you're not going to find one at first or third, unless you're talking about Vizquel.

There isn't an ideal leadoff hitter in this situation, Juan Pierre included. I'd push Alexei to the front and be done with it. I have a major problem giving the worst hitter and player on the team the most at bats. It is simply moronic.

At #19, there's no reason to have Pierre out there anymore. If Viciedo is called up, I would rather see Brent play center and lead off for the time being.

Trade for Jamey Carroll? He has put up great #'s this year for LAD and they don't need him now that their DL guys are back.

He was doing very good at leadoff for LAD and has now gone back to the bench with Dee Gordon up and the Dodgers putting up the white flag.

Ramirez
Beckham
Quentin
Konerko
Viciedo
Dunn
Rios
AJ
Morel

Our bench would consist give us alot of flexibility with different lineup changes until something sticks. I like it.

I agree that Pierre needs some time on the bench, but I would hope no MLB team makes roster decisions based off of ESPN's power rankings...

And as a response to the article Dayan went 3 for 5 yesterday.

Viciedo was removed in the bottom of the sixth inning of Charlotte's game today.

Any word on if it was an injury or if he could possibly be on his way up?

For a relief pitcher. The meltdown threads would be depressingly hilarious.
