    Steve Lombardozzi

    I just found out that the Sox signed 27 year old Steve Lombardozzi a few months ago.  He's a switch hitter (career .263 BA) with decent speed who can play both in the infield and outfield.  He should make the team as a utility player and might be a better option at SS than anyone else that the Sox have now.

    The safest approach is to buy a jersey of every player on the 40 man roster.

    I don't believe he's played more than a handful of games at SS so I doubt he's the answer, plus hasn't he been injured for 2 yrs? Had he played at all?  Used to like him when he was with the Nats' but I think he's been masquerading as a fan for 2 years. 
    In other words, the typical W.Sox pickup

    Just looked it up. Hasn't been hurt, just in the minors. Seems like a pickup to keep the AAA roster filled so that the real prospects have someone to play against. As I said, thought he played well for the Nats'. Wonder what happened?

    It looks like Steve Lombardozzi got caught in a crunch with a number of good infield prospects arriving in Washington around the same time.  He's a scrappy player, but not spectacular lacking the power potential that his competitors possessed.  Also, he plays several positions, which may have gotten him pigeon-holed early on as a utility type.  He's probably major league caliber as a super sub, but perhaps not quite good enough to be an everyday player unless there aren't any better options.  I see him as a yeoman type player, sort of like outfielder J.B. Shuck.

    Perhaps, Bobby, but one potential stiff is better than two.  On a good team with a strong farm system full of talent pushing for a major league opportunity, Lombardozzi would likely only get in the way.  On the White Sox, though, he could play a valuable role as a multi-position utility player.  I'd sooner see the versatile Steve Lombardozzi filling one roster spot than Leury Garcia and Mike Olt taking up two spots.  Think of him as a "stiff eliminator".

    I'd like to see the pitching staff cut down to 10.

    I'd like to see continual cases of free Guinness delivered to everybody in the nation.  But it ain't going to happen, even if Sanders is elected Prez.

    Get used to the 12-man pitching staff, Kark, and just hope that Cooper doesn't push it to 13.
