Nice Shootin', Tex

Looks like the White Sox will be looking for a new shortstop next season.

Not that it should have taken something like this. Uribe was one of the problems with the 2006 White Sox. Sure, he hit 21 homers, but his ridiculous .257 on-base percentage helped kill many, many rallies. By failing to draw a single walk in 80 at-bats after September 1, he managed the almost impossible feat over that final month of posting an OBP lower than his batting average (.200 to .198). Uribe was a good player for the Sox in 2004 and a decent one in 2005, but a poor one in 2006.

Hmmm, here's a decent shortstop who might be available. Not that I expect that to happen, but I'm sure that if there is a possibility, Kenny Williams will consider it.

Either that, or find out how well Quick Draw McGraw can throw from the hole.
