Has the time come to bench Scott Podsednik? He was hitting just .206 (13-for-63) with an abysmal .484 OPS in his last 18 games through Monday. For the season, his VORP, or Value Over Replacement Player, is negative. In other words, his performance this year is worse than you'd expect from the average guy available on the waiver wire -- the infamous AAAA player. The fact is, he's hurting the team at this point. Pablo Ozuna meanwhile has a .375 on-base percentage, and Rob Mackowiak has a .374 on-base percentage. I don't think Fields, Sweeney or Owens should get their first taste of big league ball as a full time starter in the heat of a pennant race, but the Sox appear to have two legit alternatives to Podsednik on the major league roster. Conveniently, Ozuna bats right handed and Mackowiak bats left handed. I legitimately think the time has come for an Ozuna/Mackowiak platoon in LF. Besides, that way I can start referring to the White Sox left fielder as Roblo Mackozuna, and that's just fun.
