    Better chance at winning the Central Division?

    Although I'm not convinced the Sox have a good or even decent chance of winning the division, I feel that they stand a better chance of doing it than the Cubs...right now. The Cubs are faltering, but that won't last. What will last, I believe, is their inability to pull it together. There's a lot of talent on that team that doesn't seem to play well together. The Sox may have less talent, but there seems to be a better cohesiveness. I hope, anyway. Plus there's the fact that the AL Central is a very weak division. The NL Central is a bit stronger.

    Hey haters

    QUOTE (Steve9347 @ May 26, 2009 -> 08:45 AM) Hawk told me so. Yeah, I heard Hawk saying that he'll end up with a ball between the eyes or in the ear, dag gummit.
  3. With the Pirates coming to town and both teams not playing well, how important is it for the Sox to sweep? Sounds like a stupid question (and it probably is), but with the humiliating loss yesterday I would think a sweep and 5 of 6 home stand would be what the Sox really need. They could head out west (cringe) only 3 games below .500 and a head of steam. Granted a series win is a series win, so winning 2 out of 3 against Pittsburgh would be okay. The Sox, however, need every win they can get before going to the left coast. History tells us it could be ugly.

    Poreda/White Sox benefit from all of this

    Poreda seems to be a highly thought-of prospect, and that is good news. Since the trade didn't go down we can concentrate on what he can do for the Sox in the future. And, hey, we still have Richard with his flashy teeth.

    Who are your CF of choice?

    The love for Wise confuses me. I understand that it's hard to love any of these guys, but Wise has not proven anything except that he is not Jerry Owens. I know that Ozzie loves Wise but am flabbergasted as to why. BA deserves the shot. I'm not saying he will succeed, but we'll never find out if he doesn't get the chance.

    Would you want the Peavy deal to happen?

    I have to say I've learned more about our minor league system so far this season than ever before. Although I don't like seeing the Sox struggle, I am quite excited about the future. 2010 and beyond could be very entertaining here.

    6 out of 10. I disappointed myself. The one about how many ways can a player get to first really threw me.

    Would you want the Peavy deal to happen?

    The money is an issue, but he is an ace and combined with Buehrle and Danks (and Floyd if he remembers how to pitch), the Sox would have a great rotation for years.

    How Important Is a Sweep of the Bucs?

    QUOTE (watchtower41 @ May 22, 2009 -> 11:02 AM) Ummm... the Bucs are 7-3 in their last 10 and just had a 5 game winning streak snapped yesterday. Noted...I hadn't looked at their recent record. I was looking at their overall record, and it's about where they are every year.

    How Important Is a Sweep of the Bucs?

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ May 22, 2009 -> 10:53 AM) Very important. As I said, we find out a lot about this club by June 1st, cause it likely puts the Sox in a position of what they are doing. I still think they'll be looking towards next season and beyond. I agree. Being at .500 at the beginning of June would say at least some good about the team. But, looking forward is probably the way we're leaning. With the AL Central the way it is, we could be both competing and gearing up for 2010 and beyond.

    Who are your CF of choice?

    I voted for Brian. I still think he needs a shot to start quite a few games in a row. I'm not sold that he will be great, but I don't think he's gotten a fair shot yet. My second choice would be Pods. He has been about as good as I expected him to be, which isn't great but okay.

    Who do you root for tomorrow night?

    I couldn't see rooting for the Cubs just because Peavy is pitching for the Padres. It's not his fault that Sox nation got exciting and then let down. There was never an indication that he would accept the trade. As a matter of fact, most of the rumors and scuttlebut was that he would NOT accept the trade. I'll admit to being let down, but I don't blame Peavy. I suppose I really can't blame the media either. They were just reporting what they knew. There was a post (or 30) in the Peavy trade thread that stated if nothing else this shows that the Sox are not laying down and are still thinking about winning this year. I agree with that. Whether the Peavy trade DOES happen at a later date or the Sox acquire Oswalt or whatever, I'm satisfied that this season is not over...yet. If we're in the same position a month from now, well that's a different story. So, long story short (too late), I will not root for the Cubs tonight.

    Peavy Rejects Sox Offer; Deal Now Dead

    QUOTE (BigSqwert @ May 21, 2009 -> 08:57 AM) Yeah that should translate to 10 more wins. Oh at least. But, then the Sox would have to increase their razor budget.

    QUOTE (BigSqwert @ May 21, 2009 -> 08:54 AM) I think Lillibridge has better numbers this year. True, but at least Giles doesn't look like a 12-year old.

    I've always liked Brian Giles since he was with the Pirates. I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Sox uniform.

    QUOTE (beautox @ May 21, 2009 -> 08:44 AM) So long as Gordon, Jordan, Tyler and Brandon aren't mentioned ill be happy. Wow, this thread is growing exponentially. As soon as I read a page another pops up. Anyway, although I'm not very well versed in our minors, from what I've read from the more knowledgable folks here I would agree that Beckham, Danks, and/or Flowers cannot be part of this deal. It's not worth it.

    QUOTE (G&T @ May 21, 2009 -> 08:05 AM) That's fine, but the Sox are not making this deal as a "shot across the bow" of the Cubs. Right. And as far as I'm concerned I don't give a damn about the Cubs. But can you imagine the uproar in the Cubs-friendly media if this deal goes down?

    QUOTE (kyyle23 @ May 21, 2009 -> 08:01 AM) If this deal happens, you can bet your money the Cubs are going to be all over the papers for missing out Exactly. Although it's true that the deal has nothing to do with the Cubs, it will have EVERYTHING to do with the Cubs in the media.

    So if this deal were to be pulled off, we'd be looking at a rotation compiled of Buehrle, Floyd, Danks, Colon (?), and Peavy? Not too bad, provided they all performed like they can. Danks' performance last night was encouraging.
