    The White Sox and Alexei Ramírez agree to 4 year deal

    Where did I say that he is better or anywhere near the player Fukudome is at this point in their careers? Can you point that out to me please Dick?

    As someone hired to shore-up the player development department (Minor League Player Development & Amateur Players), this would seem like it would fit under what you should know. Shouldn't you know why this signing was made and what they expect out of this player long-term? I know your not front office, but someone that was hired to shore up player developement - minor leage and amateur players - this seems like it would fall under that category and you should know something about it. I truly hope your superiors are smiling and laughing when they read what your writing. I wish no ill will towards anyone. I really do appreciate your feedback and posting - I am just not sure why the White Sox would want it and why you feel the need to do it; however neither is my business and, like I said, I appreciate the information and posts.

    Not a problem. There is no need to apologize.

    Hell, I don't care what you post. I asked you opinion as to what the White Sox were looking from him for a reason. What do they see him becoming? Did they really sign him with the intensions of him becoming their future utility player or do they have greater expectations for him? I also don't see the point of someone in the White Sox organization posting things like this on a message board, although I do appreciate it, I am not sure why the White Sox would want that to happen or let it continue.

    I would rather receive the answer from the poster I asked the question of instead of the poster that started the "Which White Sox player would win in a fight??" thread. Thank you though. I appreciate your insight.

    Since your a White Sox insider and in player development you must know the reason the White Sox signed this guy. Do they want him to be a utility guy or are they looking at him as a future Centerfielder or shortstop? I really don't know why you posted all that you posted. You do know that they can find out who you are even if you don't post your name on this site. Wouldn't some in the White Sox organization not want stuff posted that you have posted?

    Your body maxes out at 26? I really don't think that is true. Can you please post a link that compares this guy to Omar Infante? I would really like to read it. I have read a lot of good things about this player and I like it. Fukudome is coming off of surgery on his throwing elbow and he missed half of the 2007 season. He has been compared to Jacque Jones - average all around except for defense where he had to be moved to RF because he couldn't play SS or 3B. I am hardly sold on the guy and think the Cubs drastically overpaid for him. I for one am glad the White Sox didn't get him. There is no way he would have been a good CFer for the White Sox. He basically said that by wanting to play RF instead.

    Only cheaper, more athletic, and younger.

    Confirmed interest in Prior

    Good point. Isn't McPherson's agent Boras? I thought I read that somewhere.

    This is the exact reason why he doesn't want the option included and why he didn't re-sign with the Cubs. They insisted on the option year. This is the reason you will not be able to sign Prior. You insist on it and he walks away and signs with someone else. He is banking on having a great year and he wants to cash in on that great year. Smart move if he can do.

    Sox interested in Crisp?

    Then how is that different than what Mariotti does? Or don't you have a problem with Mariotti for that same exact thing? Maybe you don't. Maybe Mariotti changes his thoughts every other week, but it seems more to me that it is a while before he changes direction.

    It is? Really? Isn't this the same exact problem we have with Mariotti? Why would it be ok for hitless, but not Mariotti. I really don't see the difference between the two.
