I think Semien will be either be playing SS or 2B, there will be some more trades as Hahn isn't done retooling the team. We need a catcher and DeAza has to go, package him and either Gordo or TCM in a trade for a catcher.

I think there will be a big purge.

I was going to post a similar post to this one lining up the 25 man roster from opening day last year with the current 25 man, but I thought it was too early. There will be more trades coming in my opinion. I don't know that they'll receive anything significant, but I do think they'll remove a lot of dead weight.

At this point, I think this is more likely.

It would be nice to trade Keppinger, who doesn't really fit into present plans, for someone who fits into future plans. Such a trade would change things. Keppinger is out of options. It's possible he could be traded because the Whtie Sox have traded for a third baseman of the future. And it's possible Davidson could be so impressive in the spring that he would make the 25-man roster. But as things are right now, I believe Davidson will (and probably needs to) begin the season at AAA.

The Konerko signing kind of hamstrings the team. They probably need to eat $8-10M of Dunn or Keppinger's salary, which makes Konerko the most expensive bench coach in history.

Is there any way that we can carry only eleven pitchers, or is that impossible?

I'm not O.K. with either of the catchers listed. Both can't hit and both are average to below average catchers.

With Nieto in the fold, it'll likely be either Flowers or Phegley, but not both. But I also wouldn't be surprised if the Sox brought in another catcher (for De Aza, maybe?).

Sure it's possible, but you'd be trading bullpen flexibility for bench flexibility.

Which, for the record, I am in favor of. The 7th guy in the 'pen is usually so unimpressive that it'd probably be better for the team to split those 50 innings up among the other 5 non-closers.

Phegley I'm sure can return to AAA, but what about Flowers? Does he still have any options?

Good question. I don't know the answer.

If the Sox aren't spending they could conceivably just cut Keppinger. Makes no sense to have him on the roster. What's the difference if a minimum salary player is going to take his place anyway? Start Semien and make Beckham a 350 AB super utility player, problem solved.

If we sign Aaron Rowand, we can. He can play all nine positions like the future HOFer he is.

Dewayne Wise, though, had the distinction of having the best ERA on both the White Sox and Yankees staffs in 2012.
