With the recently acquired Adam Dunn, Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has a few more options when it comes to setting up his lineup, and whatever the combination it will likely pair Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko.

“I just like Rios in that third spot, providing more speed,” Mark Gonzales, of the Chicago Tribune, said on the Mully and Hanley Show. “I think [Konerko] in the No. 5 spot provides great protection for Rios and Dunn. I think he might be the best protector in that spot right there. I can’t see it being much more radical. I think Ozzie is pretty much committed to keeping Dunn and Konerko together, and I think if you give a blend of righty, lefty, righty in the middle of the lineup, iis a really a nice formidable lineup.”
