Why is he playing so poorly right now? How much longer do you wait on a guy like this (on the White Sox) to turn it on?

I think he'll turn it around eventually. Prior to today's game, he had reached base 10 times in the past 5 games. He was hammering pitches last season. I'm staying patient, not going to cut him loose, just trying to find a competent 2B to sub in for the time being. I was offered Uggla today. I also have a deal brewing for Zobrist.

I'd say keep him on the bench until Memorial Day. If by June he still sucks, chances are he will be sent to AA or AAA to "get his head together" or whatever they say.

The real problem is that I have Beckham AND Figgins who are both struggling and can't keep them both on the bench. Who should I cut loose?

Beckham has more upside, but Figgins has the track record. Last year he hit 300 with a 400 OBP and 40+ steals. I know the hip opinion is to keep Beckham, but I say drop Beckham. Figgins is more likely to give you quality this year.

Unless you're in a keeper league, then try to trade Figgins.
