As expected, the White Sox are heading into the 2010 season without designated hitter Jim Thome. In a conference call with beat writers Monday night, manager Ozzie Guillen confirmed the decision. He talked to the 39-year-old Thome on Sunday. “I don't think Jimmy could play once a week, twice a week, and produce,” Ozzie said. The Sox plan on using as many as six players, Mark Kotsay, Andruw Jones, Paul Konerko, Juan Pierre, Omar Vizquel and Carlos Quentin, in the DH spot.
