Sheehan On The White Sox

Same disclaimer as the Twins post: no way to link to an email newsletter, so had to use a FanPost.


Interesting comment on Peavy...

7. Chicago White Sox (90-72, first in AL Central, 819 RS, 732 RA). No team filled an offseason hole as well as the Sox did by signing Adam Dunn. The slugger was the perfect fit for a team needing OBP and left-handed pop, as well as a DH that wasn't the laughingstock of the league. The upgrade over the Mark Kotsay Krew is four to five wins, more than enough to vault them to the top. Too much is being made of Jake Peavy's absence; Peavy simply isn't that good any longer, and while better than a typical fifth starter, would have a hard time making the postseason roster, much less the rotation, for this team. If the Sox have concerns, they lie in a lineup that will be relying on players coming off peak years (Paul Konerko, Alexis Rios), and some others whose peaks were much further back than 2010 (Juan Pierre, A.J. Pierzynski). The Sox don't have much depth and may be near their payroll maximum, so they'll need Brent Morel to be a league-average third baseman, their older players to hang on for a year, and for the lefty-heavy bullpen -- featuring Chris Sale -- to continue the Guillen/Cooper tradition of strong pens.
