"But no single move this off-season has been as damaging as the trade for and subsequent extension to Mark Teahen, a move that is classic Kenny Williams. Teahen had bounced around positions in Kansas City, and hadn't had a good offensive season since '06, his last as a full-time 3B. Williams seemed to buy that moving Teahen back to 3B, where all metrics seemed to agree he was terrible defensively, would be a recipe for a return to his previous offensive heights, that comfort in the field would translate to comfort at the plate. Well, Teahen may be comfortable in the field, but that's only because he has the approximate range of Lay-Z-Boy recliner. There's really no excuse for the front office and scouts not know the defensive shortcomings of an intra-division foe. That Williams saw fit to lock Teahen into a multi-year deal prior to him taking a single groundball in a White Sox uniform is further indictment of an organization that relies more on gut than on raw data or even directly observable fact."
