About 25 hours or so ago, I wrote a post decrying whinging about the composition of a bench. There were some good points made in the comments, mostly about the glorious mediocrity/redundancy/lack of necessity of one Orlando Hudson. And in a near and bleak future, the wish of a jettisoned O-Dog might be granted. If you're good at comprehending titles and headlines, you've noticed this post won't be arguing the relative merits of Dewayne Wise versus Jordan Danks and I applaud you for it.
The lineup for tonight's game has been revealed. Unsurprisingly, the mildly concussed Paul Konerko is not in the starting nine. While no official decision has been made as to whether he'll hit the disabled list or not, things are looking a bit grim. The White Sox do not have another day off until the 23rd. We've reached the part of the season that nagging injuries creep in and starters tend to need more time off. And unless we'd like to see the horror that was Wednesday night's lineup return, Kenny Williams and Robin Ventura might need to think about calling up Dan Johnson, the blandest man in Charlotte.
