Chicago White Sox Filling Holes For 2014

The Chicago White Sox announced a big signing today, ok maybe not as big as Jacoby Ellsbury with the Yankees but they did bring back team captain and fan favorite Paul Konerko.  Although his last season was disappointing as he hit .244 with 12 home runs, he can still hit the lefties.  As bad as Adam Dunn is, he is horrendous against lefties.  Adam Dunn hit .197 against lefties...
