    Not liking Schoeny's attitude

    http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NAS...s_cws&fext=.jsp Guillen's reaction, definitely stern to say the least.

    about shingo

    Yeah, I don't think that he'd be a big free agency player, Borass or no Borass. Apparently he passed up quite a bit more money in Japan to get a chance in MLB. That alone tells me that he's one those rare players who place money second behind happiness. I think Shingo is happy in Chicago and can't imagine why he'd want to leave.

    Constant trade rumors post garcia trade

    Do you like rumored Braves trade???

    Well, it's a salary swap this year with ATL having Jones and Maggs off the books next year. One article stated that ATL planned on cutting that $20M over a couple of years, not necessarily immediately. I could see ATL turning around and trading Maggs after they acquire him.

    Potential trade with braves...

    That's the thing, he's young and cheap and their catcher of the future with this being his first full season. The guy is a stud. Highly touted prospect who, beside monetary demands, pushed Javey out of ATL. He's also performing this season with a good average, good D, and clutch already. I have absolutely no idea why they would want to dump Estrada. He's the Joe Mauer of the Braves org.

    Available Catchers

    That would be an absolute disaster. I remember one of the reports out of SF saying that he wouldn't watch film of upcoming opponents but would constantly be watching Twins games in the clubhouse. Hmmmm....would you want to hire a die hard twin fan to beat the twins??? no thanks.

    Official Ortiz/Jones ATL Rumors Thread

    This deal (not the Marte part) in addition to the Garcia deal would absolutely solidify the Sox as a WS contender, IMO.

    ESPN 1000: Freddy Garcia traded to the White Sox

    As impressed as I would be if we schnagged him, there's no way. That'd be like us trading away MO for a rent-a-player

    ESPN 1000: Freddy Garcia traded to the White Sox

    So we gave up Mike Morse too???? What the f***??? So 1 stud prospect, 1 ML ready catcher with a high ceiling, and another midlevel prospect who appears to be breaking out for Freddy Garcia, potential ace or #2, and a AAAA catcher. We just got fleeced, long term deal with Garcia or not. How much loot are we getting???

    ESPN 1000: Freddy Garcia traded to the White Sox

    I'm all about "going for it". We recognized our holes and it sounds like KW is trying to fill them (SP (Ortiz?, Garcia), CF (Jones?), BP). Problem is that you can't make new holes to fill existing holes, you can't move a brick from the left side of the dam to fill a hole on the right side of the dam, that sumb**** is still gonna leak.

    That's like ATL throwin' Estrada in the Maggs deal. Wow.

    ESPN 1000: Freddy Garcia traded to the White Sox

    I've got no problem losing Reed whatsoever. That's not the issue. Big MO is the issue. He was slated to be our catcher for the next 5 years. Man, overpaid big time.

    Its a Nice Win, But There are still a few Problems

    Can't believe it took 2 full pages before someone pointed out that he outpitched the rest of the staff in this series. I'm not a Rauch fan, I don't think he has much of a ML career ahead of him, but he f***ing stepped up yesterday. I think some credit needs to be given to KW too. He swallowed his pride, once again, and brought Rauch back. Was he originally just trying to motivate Rauch? Who knows. Whatever happened it worked for atleast 1 game that was an absolute MUST win.

    Sox Needs

    With pitching as scarce as it is, I don't see any team willing to rent Magglio while giving us the pitchers he's worth in return. I mean the only contending teams with deep, dominant staffs are OAK, CHN, HOU, and kinda sorta BOS. Maggs for Zito and Bradford, or Maggs for Clement and Farnsworth, or Maggs&Cotts for Dotel and Oswalt. You take those pitchers away from those teams and they are all weakened tremendously, with OAK being the only exception. I do agree that we could afford to trade Maggs being our weakness lies in our pitching and not our offense, with the assurance that we'd pick up a LH power bat (Finley). I just don't see any contending teams wanting to trade away the caliber of pitching that we'd need in return.

    Few Thoughts on today's game

    What was the attendance tonight?

    Ozzie needs to learn how to call Jon Adkins name.

    We need to end this now considering the crap we have left in our BP.

    Maggs Era Ending

    They didn't use quotes once in that entire article. Nice op/ed piece, that's about it. I could've wrote the same thing and it would have had about as much fact in it. There's no telling what's going to happen with Maggs.

    When should the Sox start to panic?

    "for the sake of making a move"??????? Making a move for the hell of it would be something along the lines of bringing Jose Vidro here. We already have a stocked IF, including two quality 2B, but let's get Vidro because he's a big name. Vidro's effect on this team would be minimal except for some good press about how KW is trying to win a championship, blah, blah, blah. Making moves to fill holes that are obviously costing your team victories is NOT even close to making a move "for the sake of making a move". We absolutely NEED another SP. If we picked up Glendon f***ing Rusch tomorrow our team would improve DRAMATICALLY. There is no bad move for KW to make to fill the 5th spot, there is no possible way I see him making the team worse via a deal for another pitcher. Same with RH setup, we don't have s***. It's a glaring weakness and MUST be addressed before things get out of control. There's no "for the sake" of it about it, a GM serious about winning has to do whatever it takes. If, as a GM, you're not willing to fill the holes by giving up quality or some of your future (or your name is Phil Hendry and you're dealing with the Pirates), you might as well announce that you're selling at the break. We cannot win with the holes that we have right now. Thanks to some outstanding hitting by Willie and Juan, great early starts from SS, and Koch not blowing saves early allowing Shingo to pitch RH setup, we didn't see how much of an effect these holes would have. Juan, Willie, and Schoe have all come back to earth. Koch is gone, moving Mr. Zero to close, leaving that RH setup hole. Now we're beginning to see what KW, JR, and co. set us up for at the beginning of the season. Thing is, their plan was to start the season cheap, hang in the race, and fill the holes as the season progresses. Their plan is working, but NOW is the time they uphold their end of the plan and fill those holes. KW has made some great moves in the last couple of seasons, I don't think he's a bad GM at all. I will question his sincerity when he talks about going after championships if he continues to wait for a sugarcoated deal while our team falls out of contention.

    When should the Sox start to panic?

    Let me join in the nutsack swinging.... Good post Brando. I posted on another board how it is absolutely ridiculous that KW is sitting here watching this team implode due to obvious problems. He needs to get on the phone and make an offer that the other team can't refuse. You cannot watch your team lose every fifth game, blow late leads, and get shut down by power RHP because you want to hang onto a particular prospect or two. I mean, you could sit back and watch, but if you want to win you can't. If it's a matter of no other team willing to deal yet, well, you've still got to make an excellent offer. If there's still no takers then go out and pick up a stop-gap pitcher for the 5th spot and in the pen until a deal to upgrade can be made. This team has too much talent to sacrifice in the name of holding onto a couple of prospects.

    Is all I know is that I was sitting on my couch fuming while watching that 6th inning. It was so obvious to me that he was scared to pitch on hitters counts. He had pitched strikes on 2-0 counts in the 1st-5th innings, but suddenly he TOTALLY changed his approach and then after giving up a hit his approach went back to the way it was. I'd say that I was just seeing things but DJ helped to confirm that it wasn't just my pessimism, he and Hawk saw the same thing.
  24. mmmmmbeeer


    How about we call him Jon "I threw the ugliest 3 hitter in history" Garland, would that keep me out of Moronland? The guy gave up 3 hits and 3 walks, 6 total baserunners. That's pretty badass. The fact that 4/6 scored is pretty much just ass.
  25. mmmmmbeeer


    s*** man, is all you had to do was watch the first 5 innings and then watch the last out of the 6th, and all of the 7th and 8th. He absolutely REFUSED to throw strikes on hitter's counts. There is no mind reading involved, it was plain as day by watching his sequences. On the other hand though, if his idea of throwing 2-0 strikes is the same as the cookie he served up to Cabrera 2-0 bottom of the 9th, I'm kind of glad he did walk those 3 batters, lol.
