A look at the Sox 25-man roster ranked by talent, makeup and value to the team

1. RHP Jake Peavy - A potential 20-game winner and 200-plus strikeout guy.
2. C A.J. Pierzynski - Try and replace him - try it.
3. 2B Gordon Beckham - The future of the club, and the present No. 2 hitter in the lineup.
4. LHP Mark Buehrle
5. RHP Bobby Jenks - If Jenks falls, the entire bullpen has to shift up a spot.
6. RF Carlos Quentin
7. LHP John Danks
8. 1B Paul Konerko - Da Captain
9. RHP Gavin Floyd
10. LHP Matt Thornton - No longer under the radar as an elite lefty reliever.
11. CF Alex Rios
12. SS Alexei Ramirez - Good teams have to be sound up the middle.
13. LF Juan Pierre
14. 3B Mark Teahen
15. RHP J.J. Putz
16. DH Andruw Jones
17. DH Mark Kotsay - Jones and Kotsay are interchangeable, as long as one is swinging the bat well.
18. RHP Sergio Santos - Could be the closer of the future or a May send down.
19. RHP Freddy Garcia
20. INF Omar Vizquel
21. RHP Tony Pena
22. LHP Randy Williams - Is he ready to slay the M & M boys [Mauer and Morneau]?
23. RHP Scott Linebrink
24. INF Jayson Nix
25. C Donny Lucy

Why is it that the Sox usually get stuck with backup catchers who have weird names? First it's Chris Widger, then Corky Miller ... and now Donny Lucy.

msandr ...isn't a WIERD NAME ??? do you have another Wierd-O"
