It's been a quiet off-season. Perhaps even too quiet? No major roster additions have been announced so far, and WSI's Guy Bacci wonders how long might Sox Fans need to wait for big news to finally break out on the South Side?
While other teams are busy selling hope to suckers, WSI's Hal Vickery has a scary thought about what might happen to the strength of our Sox: Pitching! Is this a dream team or merely a nightmare waiting to happen?
Thanks from Billy Pierce
Just last autumn, Sox Fans celebrated like never before in their lifetime! Now one year later, perhaps the ultimate bit of Sox memorabilia from this precise championship moment in time, sends a gift and receives thanks from a Sox legend representing a very good cause. Billy Pierce says, "Thanks, WSI" and so does WSI's George Bova!
Last Thoughts on Cotts
The Sox bullpen had plenty of problems in 2006 but now one of them is gone. Neal Cotts might find renewed success elsewhere but he is somebody else's problem to solve now. WSI's Hal Vickery isn't sad about this turn of events along with many other totally biased Sox Fans, too.
A Different Winter
How much is ever enough? When it comes to baseball championships, too much is just right! WSI's Hal Vickery notes the different sort of winter this one figures to be after the different sort of summer that just concluded.
Johnny Sain Remembered
Others around baseball might remember Johnny Sain as one of the tandem of great pitchers from the old Boston Braves, but not on the South Side. To Sox Fans Johnny Sain will always be the maverick pitching coach who join the ballclub at a critical moment and helped rebuild the struggling franchise towards a brighter future. WSI's Mark Liptak collects remembrances of pitching coach Johnny Sain from the players who knew him best.
What started last spring as an attempt to consolidate authority inside Cubune Tower has now been fumbled causing Wall Street to openly speculate about the break up of the entire Cubune empire -- including the previously "untouchable" Lovable Losers! Might the White Sox finally be placed on a fair playing field in their hometown media? WSI's Hal Vickery dares to dream the dream!
