I imagine will fill the 3rd base hole via a trade or free agency. I can't see them just throwing anyone out there.

Interesting.

Looks like Hahn has some irons in the fire. We'll have to see how some of the FA's shake out first, though.

I can. There's a reason Rich Lindberg named his book on the history of the White Sox "Who's on Third".

Chris Snopek, Greg Norton, Eddie Williams, Kenny Williams, Tim Hulett, Lorenzo Gray, Junior Moore are some of the forgettable names that come to mind for me that have been tried from the last 30 years or so.

Robin Ventura and Joe Crede have spoiled us.

EDIT: I left Orlando Hudson off my original list, because I have tried hard to blot that six week period out of my memory.

Don't forget Alex Cintron, Josh Fields and Andy Gonzalez.

Vance was never going to be a long term solution but in the period of time he was there his glove work was very solid and that's all the Sox wanted. With the rest of that lineup he wasn't expected to hit home runs or drive in runs.

I was fond of the Chris Sabo "era". Nobody wore the goggles quite like him.

Agree, I'd take a 2000 milkman next year.

Scott Merkin
Sale taking steps to reach elite starting level:
http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news...s_cws&c_id=cws


"It's nice to get that first year out of the way, but I learned so much going through it: who I am and how my body reacts," Sale told MLB.com during a phone interview from his Florida home. As for throwing, he started last November, but was encouraged by pitching coach Don Cooper to wait until January for this coming season after surpassing his previous career high by 56 innings.

Yes the human mind has a self defense mechanism that blocks unpleasurable events out of our minds. This would be one of them
