Welcome Mark Teahen?

This is what I get for sleeping in this morning. Apparently, the White Sox shipped out Chris Getz and Josh Fields to the Royals for Mark Teahen.

I say "apparently" because the Royals are mum on the trade, although the White Sox have already announced it. It may be a premature welcome, but welcome, Mark!

In other news, the White Sox have re-signed Mark Kotsay. That was a no-brainer there! Welcome back, Mark! I think soon we'll have a team of players named Mark.

This certainly looks like it will be a busy offseason. Stay tuned!

What can you tell me about Getz and Fields? I remember Fields big rookie season, but I haven't heard anything since.

As for Teahen, he is a good clubhouse guy. His stats this year are basically what you can expect from him every year. I think that if a team kept him in one position every year, they might get a little more out of him. He still needs some work in the outfield, though. He doesn't always take the best routes.

The best thing for Josh would be a change of scenery. He has to get his head together. Defensively, he should be fine. He needs to work at becoming more consistent at the plate. It's a matter of timing. Once he gets that down again, he should give you great power numbers.

Chris Getz is one that I will miss. You won't notice his accomplishments, but at the end of the season, his totals will surprise you. He is a gamer, who is getting better in the field. He will do the little things that help a team win. A good top of the order guy.

I'm guessing Teahen will wither be in right field or at second base. It depends on what roles are left to fill once Spring Training starts. I'm glad to hear that he's a good clubhouse guy.

Thanks. I hope it works out for both teams.
