When the 'Greek God of Walks' came over from Boston last season he was practically gift-wrapped. Chicago paid $1.12 million of the $12.25 million he banked last year in what turned out to be the last best thing Kenny Williams did in office. All the Sox gave up for him was Brent Lillibridge (who was DFA'd) and Zach Stewart. So, basically, nothing.

New White Sox GM Rick Hahn decided he wasn't going to pay the $13M option for a 34-year-old third baseman next season. I don't blame him, because that is a lot of money. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that he wont be back in a White Sox uniform.
