    Wow, Humber. You fo' realz?

    QUOTE (chw42 @ May 31, 2011 -> 09:10 PM) He used to throw in the high 90s? I thought he was at best a mid 90s guy when he got drafted? I thought I heard somewhere that he used to be able to, but after looking it up, it seems that you are correct. Before his injury, he was a 92-95 type guy with movement. After the surgery though, his fastball went on a decline before settling around 89 or 90.

    QUOTE (iamshack @ May 31, 2011 -> 08:37 PM) You're so full of bologna...dude was a 1st round draft pick. Stuff has never been the issue with him. Stuff became the problem with him after be blew out his elbow. Good curve, but otherwise, the rest of his stuff is either below or at best average. He woulda been nasty though if he could still throw that heater in the high 90's.

    Why no changes..............Really!

    In all fairness to Juan, he was swinging the bat well and a lot of his hits were good hits. But I wouldn't count on Juan staying hot. Plus, his god awful play in LF really hurts. Every fly ball is an adventure, and his arm turns singles into doubles on a consistent basis.

    Lol, one hot streak and now he's gonna bat well over 300 the rest of career.

    It would be nice to see Pierre lose all PT to Viciedo. As soon as Juan snaps out of this little hot streak he's on, that's exactly what we should do. But we won't.

    Ozzie's "old school" style killing this team

    Anyone with any idea of baseball knows that bunting there was a stupid call. Lester just walked two in a row, and started morel off 2 and 0. There is no reason for any manager to keep the bunt sign on there, especially with Juan on deck. Ozzie got really lucky he didn't cost us this game, even though he tried.

    It's not old school, it's just plain old dumb baseball by Ozzie.

    QUOTE (fathom @ May 30, 2011 -> 07:31 PM) The top of the 4th was the worst managed inning of Ozzie's career, in my opinion. He needs to take his ass and go to the National League. The bunt with a 2-0 count after Lester walked two in a row, that was easily one of the worst decisions I've ever witnessed. The double steal wasn't a bad idea, but Pierre shouldn't see the field again after swinging at that pitch.
  9. Lol at Ozzie. The guy who was getting more playing time than both Lillibridge and Morel got DFA'd. Thank you KW! I assume Marquez will be up here no longer than a week until Teahen is back.

    QUOTE (southsideirish71 @ May 29, 2011 -> 03:40 PM) I posted this in another thread. Its time for him to go. The minute you start ripping on the fans in some fit of rage because the seat gets a bit hot. You have overstayed your welcome. " I've wanted Ozzie gone since last year when he said that if you disagree with the way he manages, go be a fan of a different team, or something along those lines. I can't think of any manager who has gotten away with more shot than Ozzie.

    QUOTE (elrockinMT @ May 29, 2011 -> 03:28 PM) When Ozzie can take the field and hit, run, catch and pitch and fails to do those things then I will support him being fired The only real way for fans to determine how good a manager has been if the manager consistently puts the team in the best position to succeed. If you believe Ozzie has done that, I want some of whatever you are on.

    QUOTE (iamshack @ May 29, 2011 -> 12:17 PM) I love Carlos, but I have come to terms with the fact that he will probably never be a consistent player. What to do with you, Carlos... Best case is if we are out of it, let's hope he goes on a hot streak and a team offers something decent for him.

    Realistic Adam Dunn expectations

    QUOTE (iamshack @ May 28, 2011 -> 06:29 PM) Well, considering our salary obligations, I don't know if you really can until 2013 or so... We are really handcuffed with Dunn. It's looking more and more like this organization is gonna be in a bad way for a while.

    Realistic Adam Dunn expectations

    QUOTE (WHITESOXRANDY @ May 28, 2011 -> 04:59 PM) It's not that I thought Dunn would suck this bad. And, I didn't mind the fact that the Sox signed him. I just knew that they paid him too much yearly and for too long a period because let's face it, Dunn already looks like he's 45 playing in a beer league. Secondly, I knew the Sox needed some of that money for other players - particularly J.J. Putz. That pissed me off to see him go to Arizona for $ 5 mil. a year and ofcourse he's 15 for 15 now. That alone would have changed this season. Kenny did not need to throw that kind of money at the DH spot - and ONCE AGAIN for a guy (Dunn) that was NOT a great hitter. And, even at his best has a skill set that is very very limited. He's the anti-Lillibridge. Props to you Randy. My feelings exactly.

    Ozzieball, doesn't make sense and usually doesn't work.

    6 man rotation

    No matter what you think about Humber, it would be insane to move him to the pen. Odds are that Humber is pitching waaay above his head, and this is his first time around the league so that helps too. But he's hot right now, why would you f*** with that right now?

    QUOTE (witesoxfan @ May 22, 2011 -> 07:32 PM) One week won't make up for a month and a half long complete suckfest. Atleast Dunn hits for power and walks. Oh, and I'm not the grand wizard of baseball yet, but Ozzie Smith did call to tell me that he is passing the torch on to me later this summer. I can't wait! No one said Juan made up for being pretty much trash on the field this season. However, simply put, both Juan and Dunn, along with Rios and Beckham have been in a race to see who can be the worst offensively. Adam Dunn has hit for as much power as Gordon Beckham and Brent Lillibridge. And while walks are cool and all, it's not that huge of a positive when Dunn is only scoring on a home run, and is striking out once every 2.5 at bats. Juan has almost double the amount of hits and you can always count on Juan to at least put the ball in play, however weak that grounder or pop up is. But hey, at least you give yourself a chance in you put the ball in play. I'll say this though, Juan is probably the worst all around player in baseball.

    Did I do something wrong? Im pretty sure 90% of the people who post on any message board would respond to something like that in a very similar fashion. In fact, I think I handled myself quite civilly.

    QUOTE (witesoxfan @ May 22, 2011 -> 06:47 AM) Adam Dunn is a f***ing square, so you should probably "shape" him up and get him into the proper "form" so he can do his normal home run stuff. Perhaps that's a triangle or the even more rare heptagon. Oh, and if you think Dunn even "might" be the worst offensive player in baseball, I would also "guess" that you haven't been "watching" the Chicago "White" Sox play baseball because "Juan" Pierre has been the worst "offensive" player in the "entire" game. He "is" so f***ing bad that "I" would be a better "player" than he would "be" by standing at the plate and going all "Eddie" Gaedel. I would guess you haven't watched any games lately because thanks to Juan's little "hot streak" this past week, he might have passed up Dunn on the list of who sucks more. But hey, right now we got 3 really short midgets in Dunn, Juan, and Rios. What's the point of arguing who is the tallest, they all f***ing suck right now. But hey, I don't know who pissed in your cheerios but don't f***ing come at me like I'm a little boy and you are the grand wizard of baseball.

    Interesting Trade Possibilities.

    I wonder if the Rocks would sell low on Ian Stewart.

    QUOTE (lostfan @ May 21, 2011 -> 07:29 PM) The whole idea of his strikeouts not mattering is based on the fact that when he hits the ball he hits it really, really f***ing hard. But... he has to... hit... the ball... I haven't watched a game on TV in a while, I didn't know fans were booing him and yelling "YOU SUCK" after every at-bat. A shame, because his golden sombrero was the only glaring negative in the lineup today. With the amount of money Dunn is being paid with the fact he is out of shape, and might be the worst offensive player in baseball thus far, he should get booed until he gets his s*** together.

    2011 Minor League Catch-All Thread

    QUOTE (Springfield SoxFan @ May 21, 2011 -> 09:21 AM) Another player from the Swisher trade to the A's called up to the majors: http://www.latimes.com/sports/sns-tsn-aan-...0,1536107.story This trade gets me mad everytime I think about it. Imagine having Sweeney playing LF and leading off, to go along with Gio and DLS. I still think DLS could be the prize of the package and become a real nasty set up man or closer.

    5/21 vs Dodgers

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ May 21, 2011 -> 03:33 PM) Quentin has been hitting like Dunn with fewer walks for the last 2 weeks. I know, but there won't be as many strikeouts, and honestly, right now he is the best option for the 3 hole, sadly. Dunn cannot be in the 3 hole anymore, plain and simple.

    5/21 vs Dodgers

    Dunn has to be leading the league in way out in front hard hit foul balls... And strikeouts. Time to move CQ to the 3 hole and move Dunn down.
