Beckham, Fields both in lineup

The White Sox are facing another starting pitcher they've never seen this afternoon _ Cleveland’s David Huff.
As has been well documented, starters facing the Sox for the first time this season are 7-1 with a 1.52 ERA.
Huff, a lefty, is 0-2 with a 9.77 ERA in 4 starts for the Tribe, so you’d think the White Sox are going to do some damage.
As for today’s lineup, Ozzie’s got Gordon Beckham and Josh Fields on the card. Beckham, off to an 0-for-6 start, is batting ninth and playing third base.
Fields is batting fifth and filling in for Jim Thome at designated hitter.
Ozzie is going to have a tough time getting both Beckham and Fields steady playing time.
Since Beckham appears to be up for the long haul, you still have to think Fields is going to be traded at some point.
