Money unknown at this point, but I like it.

Essentially replaces Myers. Solid move, not much to dislike.

It should be obvious to everybody that the White Sox are trying to get into the 2013 playoffs. This is definitely not a youth movement. Hopefully we can get a good left handed hitter to add to the team. I think it would even be better if Dunn is moved by Opening Day.

Hard to dislike this move.

Why only 1 year deal. Seems like a solid pickup.

To those who want Hahn to acquire a left-handed hitter with some power:

1. Who should Hahn target?

2. Who should Hahn trade to acquire this player?

It seems to me that left-handed power is becoming more scarce; those teams that have such a hitter worth acquiring won't trade it for what the Sox can offer, without making it, at best, a lateral move for the Sox.

Do we really need Leftie power? Can't we get a leftie who hits to all fields and gets on base? Between Dunn Konerko Rios think we have enough power guys.

Hahn seems to be building a team that scores 3 or 4 a game, get the lead and let the pen shut you down.

The only thing I can't figure out about Lindstrom (nice arm, signed to a short, affordable contract), is why it took until the third week in January for someone to sign this guy.
