The White Sox decided to hang onto Scott Podsednik for the time being, re-signing him for one year and $2.9MM. I think it’s the right choice even with his lackluster 2006. In an environment where Juan Pierre is worth 5/44, Pods should have some trade value for his age 31 season on a cheap one-year deal.
Perhaps the Braves or Nats would have interest at the right price. And, of course, the White Sox could just keep him for one more season. Their offense isn’t hurting for a big bat, and using Podsednik as a fourth outfielder wouldn’t be the end of the world.
