Which Way Did He Go?

The Sox don’t have the best talent in the league, but when Konerko came off the DL, my beloved Sox designated Pablo Ozuna for assignment. The player that they should have sent out is Uribe. He has been a player that hasn’t seen much time since the Cuban missile Ramirez has blew up. At the beginning of the year they were going to dump him since they traded for Cabrera (a rent a player that will not be resigned). Ozuna is more valuable to the team. His utility player status allows him to play 2nd, 3rd, and OF while hitting .281. Compared to buster Uribe who really plays 2nd and SS hitting a meager .206
How does this kid stay on the team? He must have good pictures of someone in the organization to keep his job. Not to mention that he also have a larger salary. The only real difference between the two is that Uribe has more pop in his bat. I would have kept the quicker player that can put down bunts and play small ball since you have enough of the other types of players that can ‘Put it on the Board…YES’

Today we placed Jenks on the DL. Again if you are going to let someone go wouldn’t you have made placed Jenks on the DL on the same day that you bring Konerko back? No roster space would have had to been made at that point. Jenks has been hurt ever since the last series with the Cubs on June 29th. He is such a big part of the team and they should have shelved him earlier, let him not worry, and get healthy, since we need him after the break.
