White Sox Signings Show Sights Set on Series Run in ’11


Two months into the off-season, Chicago White Sox brass offered no clue as to the direction they were taking the team in 2011.  This week, they not only revealed their plan, but made roster moves with the passion and vigor of a Black Friday shopper seeking a $300, 40-inch TV.

Bobby Jenks? He gone!  Scott Linebrink? Traded to Atlanta.  J.J. Putz, declines arbitration and seeks big free agent dollars.  Welcome back A.J. Pierzynski, at a reduced cost.  And oh yeah, we also added a slugger who has hit at least 38 homers every season since 2004 in Adam Dunn.  And as this story is written, the White Sox are also believed to be the frontrunners of all MLB for slugger Paul Konerko.
