Gordon Beckham speaks on leading off

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ December 10, 2009 10:36 pm


“I’ve heard the rumors,” Beckham said from his Atlanta-area home as the Sox concluded the winter meetings still in pursuit of someone for the top of the order. “I kind of hope I don’t lead off. I’ve never lead off before.” … “If I have to bat leadoff, I’ll make do,” said Beckham, who batted .270 in 103 games while working his away from the bottom of the Sox’s batting order to the second spot. I’ll work at being good at it. I’m OK if they want me to bat there.” … “I don’t think they’d ask me to change much,” Beckham said. “The only thing it would hurt (batting leadoff) would be my RBIs.”

Beckham looks forward to his move to 2B:

“I’ll be OK. The only transition is turning (the double play).”
