White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

As of the end of Tuesday, when asked which member of the 2005 World Series you'd most like to see back with the White Sox, 31 percent of responders voted for Aaron Rowand while 29 percent went for Juan Uribe. For the record, Paul Konerko went with Uribe, While Pierzynski mentioned Rowand but went with Neal Cotts or Cliff Politte, who received just 2 and 1 percent of the vote. Jon Garland garnered a solid 17 percent, while "other" -- Jermaine Dye and Scott Podsednik were popular answers -- received 15 percent. Carl Everett got just 2 percent, which seems a little low, though.

Adam Dunn may not be a good bet to hit 30 home runs, but if he has some sort of bounce-back year, he'll still be worth significantly more to the 2012 White Sox than he was to the 2011 team in terms of dollar value.

Chicago Baseball Hot Stove looked at the latest chatter (or non-chatter, at least from Kenny Williams) on Yoenis Cespedes and Jorge Soler -- the latter of which would be a great fit for the White Sox, but may end up with the Cubs.

Miguel Cabrera won't play left field. Nuts.

And at South Side Sox, KenWo recapped SoxFest, while James has a fantastic look back at previous SoxFests for Southside Showdown.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
