They said they weren't willing to trade Beckham and it makes no sense for them
That's a great point, and one that is often forgotten. Most of the time, we just see Adrian as an upgrade from Beckham offensively. But if trading Beckham means they have to start a guy hitting .220 and 1 HR at 2B, what's the point?
As a White Sox fan, I'd love to see Adrian end up on the South Side. I'd even give up Hudson and Mitchell to get him. But I say hands off Beckham and Flowers. We've taken on enough salary anyway. But if we can get some much needed power and a left-handed bat in the form of a stud like that without losing Beckham--go at it.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
