Meh.

If a player is available in the Rule 5 draft there is usually a reason why.

Default Rumor

I have a reliable source that told me he is changing his name to White Sox Sanchez.

Johan Santana, Dan Uggla, Shane Victorino. All Rule 5 picks. You never know.

Sanchez is 29 and has pretty much no upside for anything else other than a good defensive infielder, those guys do come at a dime a dozen for organizations, so it's not surprising that he was unprotected. I do appreciate that Rick is trying to add more versatile players.

Sanchez has a chance to be a slight upgrade to Ray Olmeda. If he sucks in spring training, it only costs them 25 grand to send him back to the Angels.

The Sox would actually RECEIVE twenty-five grand if they return him to the Angels.

Your right. I was half asleep when I posted. Should have said he only cost them 25 grand.

So the bench is now most likely Wise-Sanchez-BU Catcher-X. Johnson could be X I assume.

Doesn't exactly inspire confidence does it?

Sigh.....

Who is Johnson? Dan Johnson was granted free agency on November 30th.

Default Jordan Danks

Could go with Jordan Danks. Sanchez covers IF, Dunn can backup at first. Wise and Danks in the OF.

You guys are expecting the Sox to have a bench full of all-star players? The Tigers had utility guys like Ryan Raburn, Ramon Santiago, and Don Kelly on their bench last year and won an AL Pennant. Only one of these guys hit over .200 There just aren't a ton of teams out there that can stack their bench with expensive veteran talent. Most teams fill out their roster with young players and journeyman veterans. Guys like Dwayne Wise and Angel Sanchez.
