Which Left-Handed Hitter Should the White Sox Land?

Prince Fielder

That Elusive Lefty Hitter Might be Costly But Cheaper Options Are Available.

The Sox could afford to be active in a trade for a DH\1B type as it is almost a certainty Paul Konerko or Mark Kotsay (most likely) will not return in 2011.  If not traded for a slugger, Viciedo is likely to assume one of those positions next year.  So while a multi-year player of this sort sadly means then end of the Konerko era, it could make baseball sense.

That said, with injuries to Magglio Ordonez and other contenders such as the Giants and Rays looking for another bat, plus tradeable players MLB (David DeJesus) injured, there could be a high asking price for the heavy hitters.
