I'd be happy to platoon him with Dunn at DH and give Viciedo a one-month tryout at 1B. Opens up an outfield spot for a prospect, gives us an idea whether Viciedo can play over there, and gives our over-the-hill slugger a graceful exit.

It's sacrilege to most of you guys, but I'll say it. I would love it if last night was the last time I have to watch Konerko bat. There's nothing worse than watching a veteran whose skills have diminished so much that its painful to watch him hit. It's like he's swinging Frank's iron bar. His bat is just incredibly slow. I wish he would hang em up and let the kids finish out the season.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

Rather they work on moving Tank to 1B in the off-season where he can get plenty of reps. I know losing games doesn't matter and is probably preferable in the long run but no point in looking like complete assclowns in the process...

Yes, you want him to have ample skill-building time in the offseason so he doesn't become discouraged at the start.

I know we have to field a team, but not sure we should keep Viciedo either.

This made me chuckle.
