Why Alex Gordon to the White Sox makes perfect sense

The White Sox stole headlines at last year's Winter Meetings in San Diego, striking deals with David Robertson, Adam LaRoche, and Melky Cabrera. The latter two were billed as players who could provide protection in the lineup for Jose Abreu, but both didn’t play the way the Sox had envisioned.

Analysis: Alex Gordon wouldn't have scored on Game 7 error
