Chicago White Sox: A Glimpse of 2008
Just five days after rumors of the Chicago White Sox placing Juan Uribe on waivers, he has the Spring Training game of his life.

He's playing, more than anything, for a trade. Along with him, Bryan Anderson is as well.

Neither of which have a slot on the team.

Uribe will be used as a defensive replacement for the infield. Anderson will be used as a defensive replacement for the outfield.

I would rather see our bench consist of Jason Bourgeois, Pablo Ozuna, and Ryan Freel.

Yes, I know Freel is not a part of the current Sox plans, but Freel, out in Cincinnati, can be had for next to nothing. The versatile speedster is out of a starting job with Brandon Phillips in front of him at second base and Corey Patterson now signed to play center.

I have been pushing for the Sox to make a move on Freel since they traded away Aaron Rowand just weeks after winning the World Series in 2005.

Between Freel (1B/2B/3B/OF), Ozuna (2B/SS/3B/OF), Bourgeois (2B/SS/3B/OF), Alexei Ramirez (starting second baseman, can play 2B/SS/OF), and Nick Swisher (starting LF/CF, can play 1B/OF), you have arguably the most versatile team in major league baseball.

I think this is a definite no-brainer for Kenny Williams.

A player like Ryan Freel doesn't become available that often. I'm surprised no one has jumped on him, let alone Kenny.
