    Avisail Garcia is out for the rest of 2014

    After the initial heartbreak and crying "Why us g-d? WHY US?" to the heavens I'm slowly settling into the happy to see Dayan get more reps comfort zone. I suspect I'd feel different if we were just outright handing the job to a guy like D-Wise then a fellow youngster.

    Whoa boy. Could we actually have a power hitting prospect that delivers the goods?

    Youkilis, $5.6 million traded to White Sox

    Just jumping in to say that i love this move. Kudos to KW and the front office and Welcome To The Greek God Of Walks.
  4. Is it bad that i now get hit by a bout of crippling depression every time Beckham comes to the plate?

    2011-12 White Sox off season catch all thread

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Jan 31, 2012 -> 01:28 PM) Baseball is always awesome. Its all perspective. I'm becoming a bitter old man, Southsider. Although i can't deny i do get a kind of tingly feeling when those first pictures of the pitchers and catchers start coming out from Camelback.

    Thome has job with Sox when done with baseball

    QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Jan 27, 2012 -> 08:08 PM) Awful news. I'm a bit drunk, but i adore this comment.
  8. QUOTE (Heads22 @ Dec 7, 2011 -> 05:31 PM) Big East really doesn't want to let WV, Pitt and Syracuse go early. Can you blame them? As a UCONN guy, i can honestly say we have nothing else.

    Buehrle Signs with Marlins | 4 yrs $58 mil

    It's a shame i might have to root against Mark for the rest of his career. I just really want to see Ozzie and this new Miami machine fail.

    Mark Buehrle Appreciaton Thread

    I'll miss you Mark. It's a shame you're going to retire in those godawful uniforms.

    Sergio Santos traded to Toronto

    Suprising, i need to look more into this but it sounds like this Molina kid has a hell of an arm. And i'm always a fan of maximizing value for a closer.

    Sox Winter Meetings thread

    QUOTE (Lemon_44 @ Dec 5, 2011 -> 08:09 PM) I thought it was funny that after talking to my sportwriter friend last week, he put a blurb in his "Rumblings" column on Friday about the Sox and Reds talking trade. It's about 1/2 way down. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/sp...gugf418i-1.html In a couple emails we've exchanged since then he's said that Alonso is the most likely target but I wouldn't put Jay Bruce off the Sox's radar either. Maybe we're finally getting around to trading Jermaine Dye for Homer Bailey and Chris Dickerson.

    I'm hopefuly that we trade as many people as possble, in an effort to get younger. I'm ready to see a lot of new faces come spring.

    Sox rolling dice in Rule 5

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Dec 4, 2011 -> 04:42 PM) My next door neighbor is a solid guy but I wouldn't want him eating up a White Sox roster spot. I was trying to tippy-toe around talking about his actual play on the field (more to the point: at the plate) which I believe sucks. I don't really care about a guys character if he can’t play ball, but Danks was just a surprisingly cool guy. I wish him the best wherever he lands.

    Jordan Danks is a solid guy. If he is taken then, i will miss talking to him come spring.
