Chicago White Sox: time to give Dayan Viciedo a call

It is hard to find one word to describe just how the 2015 season is going for the Chicago White Sox. “Frustrating” doesn’t seem to convey the sheer disappointment that fans feel right now. Maybe baffling? No, still not sufficient. How about stupefying! Whatever way you choose to describe it, this team has produced mediocre results given the lofty expectations brought on by the...

Indians still searching for RH bat, could target Dayan Viciedo

The biggest criticism of the Indians’ off-season would undoubtedly be their inability to acquire a bat that hits from the right side of the plate. That search is still ongoing, reportedly, and they could look to fill that slot with former White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo. Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer reports the Indians have interest, but they may have competition. Viciedo...

Finding a Place for Dayan Viciedo

Dayan Viciedo was supposed to be good. In retrospect, we probably should have known better. He now finds himself a free agent, and the question is whether or not there is a team for him. In his initial signing story back in 2008, there is a lot of excitement. It is intimated that the South […]

Why In The Hell Did Dayan Viciedo Get A Pay Raise?

Dayan Viciedo saw a large pay raise yesterday. He made $2.8 million in 2014 and will be bumped up to a $4.4 million dollar salary in 2015 (MLB).
