I had high hopes for Dayan Viciedo when the White Sox signed him out of Cuba. He was one of those signings that was not only hyped, but also seemed capable of living up to it when he got here.
When he first came to Chicago in 2010 he only played in 38 games, but put up a line of .308/.321/.519 with an OPS+ of 122. Surely he’d become a mainstay in the middle of the Sox order for years to come. I mean, Hawk Harrelson said he hadn’t seen anybody with a livelier bat since Carlos Delgado, and Hawk has never been one for hyperbole!
