Chone Figgins (cringe, I know, but - Switch - LF, 3B, 2B and a little SS)
Nyjer Morgan (Lefty - OF)
Ryan Sweeney (Lefty - OF)
Luke Scott (Lefty - LF, RF, 1B).
If we didn't have Wise, I'd take Morgan or Sweeney.
Might take a shot with Luke Scott - he has hit before.

Careful saying Huff plays 3B. Huff has not played there since '08 and even then it was only 30 games.

Kennedy would work, but the free agent I would like is Kelly Johnson. He has some pop, can steal a base and his OBP isn't bad. Let him play for Beckham and Viciedo against tough righties. I don't think he has ever played 3rd., but Keppinger has only had 2 seasons with 500 abs. Maybe Johnson could play 25 games at 3rd. They could probably get Johnson 300 abs in this scenario. I haven't heard about any teams in on him, might be able to get him for a 1 year deal at around 1.5-2mil.

Good one. I feel the same way. Once was too much with that guy.

George Kottaras has been DFA'd by The A's after their acquisition of John Jaso. He's a left-handed hitting catcher w/pop who could help our team.

It turns out that Jaso was available but Seattle dealt him to the A's in the Mike Morse three-way deal with Washington.

After all that reading all I know is one thing.. We really need to find an everyday Third baseman. Somewhere, anywhere?

You have one. It's Keppinger.

Welcome to 2013 White Sox baseball!

I don't know if Keppinger will work out or not, but I'd rather take my chances with him than with Youkilis or Morel.
