    SS options?

    To see Juan Uribe for yet another year would make me just sick. And likely trigger the alcoholism gene in me, if it hasn't already.

    My response to the now gloating Cub fans

    QUOTE(Purdue1906 @ Jun 24, 2007 -> 08:29 PM) Once again, the Cubbie fans are out of the woodworks. This is my simple response to a MySpace bulletin gloating about sweeping and winning the season series. Thought I'd share it for Cubs lurkers on SoxTalk. Have a nice evening. Congratu-f***in' lations. The Cubs won 5 of 6 this year from the Sox. Gloat, all you want, because it's the only thing you have to cheer about for that pathetic joke of an organization. All the money you spent this season and the damn BREWERS are 7 1/2 games ahead of you (coincidently, yet ANOTHER team that's actually won a pennant since the advent of the affordable automobile and the television). But let's get back to the facts. The Cubs: -STILL haven't WON a World Series since TEDDY ROOSEVELT was president (1908) -STILL WON A PENNANT and PLAYED in a World Series since the year WORLD WAR II ended (1945) From a strictly Chicago baseball standpoint, let's remember: -Responsible for the city's last two World Series appearances, the WHITE SOX (1959, 2005) -Responsible for the city's last World Series CHAMPIONSHIP, the WHITE SOX (2005) -Has a fan base where 90% of the people who claim to be "fans" or go to the ballpark AREN'T just doing because: a) it's trendy, B) to relive their college days as a Lambda Alpha Chi Omega Tau Rho Beta Whateverthef***, c) to get drunk, talk on their cell phone for 8 1/2 innings, then look at the field and go "Holy s***, there's a baseball game going on." d) look at the half dress, D&G sunglass wearing, Paris Hilton look-a-likes at the park for reasons A and B. So, in closing, congrats Cubs fans. I'm happy that the underachieving '07 White Sox could shine a ray on sunlight on your otherwise miserable team's very existence. See you at baseball playoff time, where you'll be in front of the TV, just like us White Sox fans....watching the Bears. Cubs fans are happy to win the battle; Sox fans want to the WIN THE WAR. Here here! There's no talking sense into those a**clowns though. Let them enjoy this, we have more important things to worry about.

    Red Sox Interested in Buehrle?

    And this ballgame is ova (Boston). Now we wait...

    Red Sox Interested in Buehrle?

    I don't think you'll see Buehrle go anywhere until much closer to the deadline. It's still over a month away, and everyone will have their chance to go back and forth about who they'll give up. If he's dealt tonight/tomorrow/next week, we'll all be complaining that KW should've held out to see what else he could've had. Others will certainly go in the meantime, but Mark will be the big move that goes down to the wire, and may or may not even be made.

    And that's pretty much a White Sox season...

    QUOTE(Heads22 @ Jun 24, 2007 -> 04:26 PM) You're f***ing kidding right? I know, that's it??

    QUOTE(SoxFan1 @ Jun 24, 2007 -> 04:20 PM) This is the worst White Sox team I have seen in my lifetime. There's no question. It can never possibly be as bad as it is this year, even if you brought back everyone from this year. It's just a spiraling nightmare that gets worse, even when you think it can't.

    I hope hear something sometime tonight, let's not wait til Monday. If 2 runs in 27 innings against the Cubs of all teams doesn't get Walker fired, nothing will.

    Clutch 2 out hit against Marmol??? Pretty please with sugar on top? Fields is one of the only people I think can actually do it.

    QUOTE(TheOcho @ Jun 23, 2007 -> 02:16 PM) Damn Konerko... I thought that was gone. So did Hawk, STRETCH! 20 feet from the fence it's hauled in. He wants it so bad. I guess we all do.

    Hometown scoring at its finest. It's an error.

    QUOTE(Kalapse @ Jun 23, 2007 -> 01:21 PM) Javy is so f***ing nasty. He has looked good, but I'm always waiting for that next home run. And the one after that...

    White Sox vs. Cubs, 6/23/07 (L)

    QUOTE(Kalapse @ Jun 23, 2007 -> 12:45 PM) About 5 feet over the right center field wall, he just got it out. 5 games total, not in a row. Oh OK, I'd believe it if it was in a row though.

    Did I hear correctly when Hawk said that Soriano has led off the last five games with a home run? Tomorrow should end that streak with a pitch in the ribs.

    Media Starting on Ozzie Deathwatch...

    QUOTE(kageman129 @ Jun 21, 2007 -> 03:31 PM) You are damn right. There is no way Ozzie is giving up on the team. At least I would hope not. They need to just unload a few guys and try for next year. I wouldn't want anyone other than Guillen managing this ballclub . . . Not even Girardi, who just turned down the O's job?

    AND THATS A WHITE SOX WINNER!!!!!!!!

    QUOTE(ROC Sox Fan @ May 21, 2007 -> 10:36 PM) How come once our offense finally shows up, our pen starts to crumble? Because we've been predicting this from the start of this offensive slide, but I think from the starters more than the bullpen. Our rotation is still surprisingly consistent. Hopefully things right themselves and we get on a serious roll, since it hasn't happened since mid 05.

    I'm a fan of that inning.

    Ground ball pulled to the right side, for the 1,000,000th time this year already.

    How did you not expect that? You walk two guys, you deserve that kind of hit.

    QUOTE(Gregory Pratt @ May 20, 2007 -> 01:39 PM) To be fair, he's only bad at calling games and throwing the ball. Otherwise he's very very good. Actually, I'll defend him. His weak spot is his arm. He's good at blocking and catching. He needs to get better at calling. Seems like he was calling great games in '05, what happened since? Same staff essentially. Lack of preparation?
  22. Chopper2Hopper

    White Sox vs. Cubs, 5/20/07 (W)

    A glimmer of hope with that pitchout, but what was I thinking? Even when we do things right we screw them up.

    No walks, for the love of God. Awesome.

    Sox had a few lead off guys on yesterday and couldn't do anything with it. Hopefully today is different. Here we go again, nice job Gooch.
