The White Sox make sense. They don't have a fragile clubhouse incapable of handling a distraction, and they do have a need at DH, where Mark Kotsay and an assortment of others have combined to bat just .237 with a .709 OPS on the year. Whether Manny would be enough to push them past the Twins, of course, is unknown and unlikely, but if Kenny Williams could afford the price tag, there's little risk to taking a gamble. That's a team that needs help, and Manny could most definitely provide a shake-up.
