  1. First of all, Ritchie was never a good pitcher anyway. And Colon did not suck last season. If you look at his stats he was "decent." Not his ace material, but defientely was't bad eigher. Hell he was in the top 3 for complate games come on . Look at the people just this year who came to the sox and we reignited thier careers. Loaiza, gordon etc.. Even people from the past got their careers back from being in the GREAT white sox uni.
  2. I just call schoenweiss eigher "shoe" or "shoey"
  3. Dude, there have been SOOO many rumors flouting around about konerko, maggs, valentin, lee, thomas etc... etc..... I don't know where to begin. Are you sure it wasn't LA?
  4. He was also famous for his famous saying " you gotta believe" in certian situations. RIP to him and I send my condolences to his family.
  5. im the same height and throw about 80
  6. "always seem more effective out of the bullpen" is they key there ghost. When you look back at '95, that was his "breakout" year as far as his 1st time in the bullpen. That was also his best year. Loaiza was mostly a starter anyway in his career. Even hawk said in the broadcast (when loaiza was with the blue jays) that when loaiza figures his stuff out or learns a "new pitch" he is going to be something special. He already had the stuff. He just didn't harnest it. Tarvarez dosen't have the stuff for a starter. His wins compared to Loaizas (before this year.) was almost the same, but that dosent mean anything. Tarverez is the next Jose Lima.
  7. Wow..now even the Indians are making moves. They could even win this division. DBAHO..weren't we just talking about the Indians being dangerous on another thread?!
  8. It's cool man. I'll just learn how to just not care even if someone repeats it. We are all family at soxtalk. The Indians will be dangerous this year. But I expect the to put up a better race next year when their young hitters get more experience in the majors. When it's all said and done, we'll be talking about the indians like we did in the 90's
  9. Well...now it's Konerko to Dodgers again
  10. Agreed Critic and sorry about my earilier post "silence the critics" I didn't mean it in that regard But remeber, That "other" team got into the playoffs with good pitching which is a question mark going into the season with us cause we still don't know who's our 4th or 5th starter (cause I just don't like Shoe in the rotation)
  11. Hmmm...... I could have sworn I said something like that at my other post above.. But I totally agree. Can't wait to see that kid Jody Gerut. He's going to be quite a hitter, him and JEREMY REED
  12. That's where your wrong. Cotts will see majors again. I dunno if it will be for the sox but he will if he's on another team or not. I believe, IMO, that Cotts and Moss are the same pitchers as far as control. Did you see how many walks Moss had last year? Cotts can at least Strike people out. (check his minor league stats and he only issued I think 1 or 2 hrs. that's it!) Control and batting eye can be taught. It might not be that BIG of a difference, but it will improve someone's swing (as far as batters) or velocity (as far as pitching.)

  14. Right on witesoxfan. I think I posted something like that about the marlins on another thread Anyways, I actually think we do have a shot at our weak division. Our offense hasn't lost a step (if maggs is still here and if konerko can come back to form) and our pitching can go up against any of our division rivals. But you cant hate douters (The Hawk) even if we feel they are not true fans. I think the sox should silence the critics and just play their game on the field.
  15. Damn straight go LSU and Brian West
  16. Oops..sorry tony didnt mean to quote your saying. That was meant for The Hawk
  17. It looks like someone is confident in our sox Why don't we wait until at least this month ends. Usually this is the month KW makes some moves.
  18. You also have to take into consideration that the Marlins were not going anywhere. They were pretty dead. If they didn't hire McKeon eariler in the season, promote the D-train when their pitching was hurt, or make significant moves by the deadline to bolster their playoff run (Conine, Urbina) they would not have never gotton that far wutsoever. Lets see... don't wanna sound too wierd but... we got rid of our manager, Manuel, hired Ozzie, maybe promote/see if one or our rookies shine (Cotts?) and maybe make a move at the deadline (which KW usually does) We might turn into the Marlins of 04!!!
  19. Thx man. Gladly appreciate it.
  20. Of course im going to pick the sox, but I also believe they CAN win it. I'll give the Tribe one more season before their young guys blossom. But it's still too early to tell. As we've already seen, teams are still making moves (KC=Juan gone) and hopefully, the sox can get some quality arms too. I'm still not convinced this is the team were going into the season. I expect KW to make a couple of pickups to solidify this team.
  21. Well, I'm not sure if you should call KC's picthing "unproven." Most of them are proven veterans who do get the job done. Sully has been a workload more than just this season if you check his stats. He's actually said that he prefers being out there every chance he gets. I bet if he was still on the sox, you wouldn't be saying anything about him. As far as MacDougle goes, you have to take into consideration, that was his rookie season. He is still young, and he had control problems.(that's why his walk total was pretty high) Being "exposed" is when you've been in the league more than one season. That's like saying the league figured out Joe Crede's weakness in batting. I still don't think KC has the pitching we have (can't believe i acually said that) and their offense is still not as good as ours. (if Maggs is still here and if Konerko comes back to form.) Don't underestimate The Twinkies eigher. Minnesota is still very dangerous even after losing alot of their players. But we shall see. It's going to be a race to the finish.
  22. Hey, As you all know im a HUGE Jeremy Reed fan. I just want to know if any of you know if there is any Pictures of him online so I can put on my sig. That would be gradually appreciated. Thx. P.S what is those names like Admid, Benchwarmer etc. on the bottom of ppl's avatar mean? Thx again

  24. I remember about a couple years ago, a cousin of mine, who travels ALOT in the U.S., actually kinda bumped into mr. rose. He asked fo his autograph and the guy just blew him off. I hate Rose as a person but I respect what the man has done as a player. He should be in the hall IMO. But he also said if he goes into the hall, he wants to go back to managing in baseball. Dunno if that's going to happen tho.
