So if Keppinger was hitting .400 right now you would be happy Beckham broke his wrist? Interesting.

With no days off in the near future, and the starting pitching looking a little shaky, I think it may be a pitcher that gets called up.

Whoa. Happy and not minding are two completely separate concepts.

If Keppinger played to his ability, we would be more productive with him at 2B in lieu of Beckham.

1B options: Konerko, Dunn, Gilaspie and Keppinger
2B options: Keppinger, Sanchez
3B options: Gilaspie, Keppinger
SS options: Ramirez, Sanchez

OF has all the starters with Wise, Keppinger (LF) and Dunn able to back them up.

Robin would have to be creative with giving guys off days but I would prefer another arm over Tolleson, Morel or Greene.

Possible arms to be pulled up would have be Ommogrosso, Stewart, Jeff Gray, Jhan Marinez or Ramon Transoco.

Move Keppinger to second, bring up Morel and have him platoon with Gillaspie at third?

Perhaps my thread title was misleading, as later news stories I have read about Beckham say 6-8 weeks (or, alternatively, at least 6 weeks).

Scott Merkin (I think it was) speculated on twitter than the Sox might call up Morel. That said, he also thought they might go with a pitcher in Omogrosso.

Does it really matter whom they call up?

Let's hope the replacement is the guy who sucks least.

In a pinch, Viciedo can play 1st and 3rd as well. Don't laugh, I've seen Jermaine Dye at SS, in a pinch.

Even though he doesn't seem to be able to hit anymore, it hurts to see Lillibridge in a Cub uniform. It was nice having a true super-sub on your team that you could plug in anywhere infield or outfield, although he's probably better off in the NL.

That was an extremely rare instance caused by a renegade, douchebag umpire. I can buy Viciedo at 1B, it's not exactly the world's most challenging position defensively, but if he ever puts Viciedo in at 3B and there is literally... any other person on the team available, I'm going to blow my top.

That said, the Trib also speculated Tyler Greene might get the nod, he's a 29-year-old AAAA player in Charlotte right now, former 1st round pick of the Cardinals many moons ago whose been up and down between the Majors and AAA for most of the last 4 seasons now. Though, as I type this, they would need to make room on the 40-man roster for Greene, right? Which probably means he's not an option. ****ing dumb ass Tribune baseball writers.

Too bad for Beckham, but this a good chance to see Gillaspie get a long look.

I agree, we already know what we have in Beckham: nothing special, but I'm kind of excited to see Gillaspie everyday.

I think it'll be interesting to see what Gillaspie does with this time, but Beckham only just turned 27 and his potential could really spring up anytime.

Anyways, I'm guessing the potential choices with the available roster spot would be Morel, Jordan Danks, Blake Tekotte, and maybe even a pitcher.
