Scott Podsednik doesn’t belong on the North Side, and it’s not just a White Sox thing, either.
The guy’s injury prone and his defense isn’t what it use to be, which was never above average to begin with.
Despite Podsednik’s ability as a solid leadoff man, he’s just not the fit the Cubs need in center field. Better options are available (Reed Johnson) and the Cubs are better off taking a flyer on Scotty Pods.
Besides, an aging Alfonso Soriano in left field is already enough poor defense to overcome. Adding a second sub-par defender isn’t the shot-in-the- arm Jim Hendry should be looking for.
