Sox should not have traded Kuhn. He was a good possible insurance policy for beckham

My thoughts exactly. The White Sox have a utility infielder hitting .273 in the minors? That’s one of our weak spots on the roster and they gave him up for cash. At 25, I wouldn’t have minded seeing him in the majors, because right now the best backup infielder we have is Orlando Hudson.
