    Sox Sign Viciedo

    White Sox, Viciedo reach agreement | whitesox.com: News

    Nice get. Because of one trade of Esteban Loaiza for Jose Contreras, it seems like Cubans are looking hard at the Sox. Alexei Ramirez was the non Longoria ROY, while Contreras won us a Series. So did El Duque.

    Viciedo will play during major league camp, but I bet he ends up in AAA. Of course, Kenny Williams said they never considered sending Ramirez down because there'd be no one in Charlotte for him, so if Viciedo impresses, he could easily make the roster.

    He's just 19 years old too, which means we've essentially got our IF of the future in the last year. Ramirez will play SS this year, while there's been enough good feedback on Beckham to have Sox guys say he'll be up this year. We also now have both Danks (John and Jordan), and Jordan has been tearing the cover off the ball since being picked. I'd have to imagine he'll be in AA to start the year, but may very well get an invite to big league camp as well.

    Good time to be a Sox fan.
