Contenders or Pretenders?
The most critical stretch of the 2003 season is here and WSI Dave Schmitt figures we Sox Fans will learn a lot about our team in the weeks ahead--and his boat needs fixin' too.
In it to Win it?
When Kenny Williams, aka General Disarray, says the Sox are going for it, should Sox Fans believe him? WSI's Hal Vickery notes some recent contradictory statements by the Sox GM! Are we for real?
The Chairman Speaks!
If reliable signs pointed towards Jerry Manuel being pushed out, comments from the Chairman himself have undercut his own GM and everyone else working inside Planet Reinsdorf who wanted the manager gone. WSI's Hal Vickery keeps reading the tea leaves.
Manuel Must Go!
When the Sox house organ starts playing the tune, you can be pretty sure the notes are true. WSI's Hal Vickery thinks Manuel's managerial term is nearly up, because that's the talk from the "right" people.
All Star Breaks!
The season is half over, but has it already ended for the Sox? WSI's Dave Schmitt tries to make sense of the nonsense that has become the 2003 Sox season--and a few other related subjects.
Big trades for Roberto Alomar and Carl Everett have Sox Fans hoping their team can make a serious run! On the other hand, another recent deal doesn't look too promising anymore. WSI's Hal Vickery is wondering what could be the next big rumored deal.
