Who's negative? I think we were talking about Loman, not Gillaspie. The latter is a fine UT player.

Gillaspie just hit a 2 run home run

And Walker just hit a stand up triple

And Bell hits a triple. Damn

The first post is obvious - OBVIOUS - sarcasm. The second post is a valid criticism.

Had a pretty good 2011, but also easier to hit in the PCL. Still, he's likely an upgrade from that horrid bench from last year (as is Morel), but it's likely neither are world-beaters.

I just noticed that Gillaspie is wearing number 12, that somewhat surprised me as I figured the White Sox wouldn't let anyone touch that number for awhile. Especially not a guy who appears to be a bench guy at best.

It's not like they were gonna retire it.

No but I thought they would at least wait a year before giving it away. But then again they gave away Jermaine Dye's number as soon as he left.

It's not that big of a deal, but the classy thing to do would be to wait a year before issuing number 12. But then again we are talking about the White Sox front office, which can't really be described as "classy" in recent years.

Default Right now

Conor on the bench and Morel at AAA makes the most sense right now. Still early but seems like a nice pickup by the Hahnmeister.

Considering Gillaspie is out of minor league options and Morel still has 2, Conor is going to have to completely fall apart for this not to be the case.
