Scott Podsednik Signs Minor League Contract With White Sox

Chicago White Sox fans were buzzing with the news that the team had signed a minor league contract with outfielder Scott Podsednik. As the Daily Herald notes, the White Sox are hoping Podsednik, who was a star for the team in the 2005 World Series, has one "surge of brilliance" left:

Pods was one of the heroes for the 2005 World Series champions, batting .290 with 59 stolen bases.But he couldn't stay healthy the next two years and was released by the White Sox after the 2007 season.

Podsednik played in 93 games for Colorado last season and batted .253 with 12 stolen bases...
...Podsednik is headed for Class AAA Charlotte, and he might stay there if Anderson and Owens get the job done.

9News reports that the Rockies went for youth over experience in giving 23-year-old Dexter Fowler the center field spot over the veteran Podsednik.
