Much more concerned about going into the season with 2 rookie catchers than anything Viciedo does at this stage of his career.

You can't say "let's not start this argument again" and then say something that you know a lot of people vehemently disagree with.

Munch. You are not a realist in any sense of the word. You are a sensationalist at very best. You have a well displayed agenda against the White Sox and really want people to believe that literally everything will go wrong with them. You pushed your agenda to the point of making up quotes to support your "fact" that Danks would miss at least one month, hours after you were proven wrong when you said he hadn't even thrown yet.

And no, even for the people who are not high on Viciedo, there is not "a lot" of people who vehemently disagree with the premise that he will have at least a slight improvement. Calling for a regression for a 23 year old after his first full big league season might be a new low for you.

I'm not saying Viciedo is the next Jim Thome. I imagine he will hit righties better next year, but he also won't hit .350/.391/.642 off of lefties again.

This whole thread reminds me of the heady days when people were advocating trading Paulie so they could let Ross Gload or Brian Daubach play first base.

I find RIGHT FIELD much more interesting than LEFT FIELD. Right has a bar while left only has the Fundamentals desk. Beer over other people's children any day.

We are officially at the point in the calender year when WSI loses it's damn mind until the season starts.

You'll probably get your wish. And even better, Wise will lead-off when he plays. You can't just sit a player who had a .295 obp in a career year.

You're being overly optimistic.
