White Sox Chopping Block

Because the White Sox aren't doing well this season changes seem inevitable. Chicago Sun-Times White Sox beat reporter Joe Crowley has a list of players that might not be on the team much longer and it's...surprising:

On the list of potential movable parts are A.J. Pierzynski, Paul Konerko (upon agreement), Bobby Jenks, Mark Buehrle (upon agreement), Andruw Jones, Carlos Quentin and Scott Linebrink.

I don't know about you, but I think losing Konerko and Buerhle would be a big blow. I'll admit that I think Buehrle should stay for more sentimental reasons but he's still a damn good pitcher, especially when he's hot. Moving Konerko would be insane. He's been one of the main scorers on this team this year. Of the few games the Sox have won, Konerko has been responsible for it. I can understand Jones, Quentin, and Linebrink. What about Juan Pierre? And does the White Sox management really think Gordon Beckham is worth keeping?

No argument from me on letting Jenks go.
