Post Viciedo Ready?

http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news...s_cws&c_id=cws

Could Kenny have a trade in the works to clear a spot for Dayan?

Sounds like Kenny wants him to replace Pierre but Ozzie doesn't agree.

I don't think it's that simple.

I get the impression that Williams would like to see an outfield of Viciedo, Rios and Quentin. There isn't a leadoff hitter out of the outfield, and your DH as well isn't going to be a leadoff hitter. It isn't just a matter of replacing Pierre with Viciedo. It's a matter of finding a leadoff man from your infield, and you're not going to find one at first or third, unless you're talking about Vizquel.

There isn't an ideal leadoff hitter in this situation, Juan Pierre included. I'd push Alexei to the front and be done with it. I have a major problem giving the worst hitter and player on the team the most at bats. It is simply moronic.

At #19, there's no reason to have Pierre out there anymore. If Viciedo is called up, I would rather see Brent play center and lead off for the time being.

Trade for Jamey Carroll? He has put up great #'s this year for LAD and they don't need him now that their DL guys are back.

He was doing very good at leadoff for LAD and has now gone back to the bench with Dee Gordon up and the Dodgers putting up the white flag.

Ramirez
Beckham

Dunn
Rios
AJ
Morel

Our bench would consist give us alot of flexibility with different lineup changes until something sticks. I like it.

Maybe leadoff Rios. He has a little speed, he may get better pitches, and he make wake up and take leadoff seriously.
We really don't have anyone.

Tank, TCQ, and Rios in the outfield.

Split the leadoff spot between TCM, Omar, Lillibridge, Rios (if he gets going) and be done with it.

'05 proved it, good starting pitching and a **** load of home runs can take you to the promised land.

I know Viciedo is in year 3 of a 4 year deal. Do we have control of him after that?

And as a response to the article Dayan went 3 for 5 yesterday.

Yes, we have him for 6 years of control...the last two he'll be arbitration eligible.

You're forgetting the impact season by our leadoff man in 2005, setting the table, unhinging pitchers and scoring runs in bunches.

If anything, '04, '06 and '08 proved it: you can't get to the promised land by hitting a **** load of home runs alone, which is especially true in the current era where hitting numbers league-wide are low and pitching seems to have the upper hand.

We're in no hurry to add Viciedo to sit on the bench. Have Lillibridge press Pierre for playing time to get him back on track, and all is solved.

I agree that Pierre needs some time on the bench, but I would hope no MLB team makes roster decisions based off of ESPN's power rankings...

Default Ok, I'll start the rumor ...

I see that Viciedo did not play on Tuesday night for the Knights. Dayan on his way to MN?
