Another Lineup Hole to Fill!
Time is running out and the Sox need to move fast to solidify the team's 2004 chances. What hole should Kenny Williams fill? WSI's Hal Vickery has the answer -- or at least his answer!
Losing Frank & Maggs
Magglio Ordonez joins Frank Thomas on the disabled list and WSI's Guy Bacci is seriously worried about whether the Sox can hold it together and win the Central Division championship.
Concrete & Credibility fall at Cubune!
Another embarrassing denial of facts by both a Cubune reporter and his editor leaves Chicago and Chicagoans contemplating the new depths of denial the Cubune's organizational bias will sink to. WSI's editor George Bova wonders if Cubune editor Ann Marie Lipinski is embarrassing Chicago any longer or just herself.
Attendance up, Chaos too?
GM Kenny Williams may have the confidence to make big trades, but what excuse can be made for how he handles the players? Attendance this season, but maybe the chaos is too? WSI's Hal Vickery makes a plea for sanity!
Sox Soap Opera!
Over half the season has been played and the twists and turns in this season's soap opera have Sox Fans turned inside out. What happens next? WSI's Guy Bacci is one more Sox Fan very interested to find out!
Yet Another Media Feud!
Why does Chicago's sports blab radio suddenly closely resemble trashy trolls on internet message boards and what Sox Fan can be surprised to learn who is the media troll causing most of the trouble? WSI's Hal Vickery laughs along with all the other Sox Fans.
Missing Reed & Olivo
The Sox execute a blockbuster trade to make a serious run at the playoffs in 2004, but the price is steep. WSI's Guy Bacci is one more Sox Fan trying to make sense of the new landscape in the wake of this major move!
Hawk's Blood Feud!
The war of words that began last February at SoxFest has heated up again between Hawk Harrelson and the biggest self-promoter in Chicago's local media! Predictably, the level of discourse is plunging rapidly and there is no end in sight. Is a fist fight next? WSI's Hal Vickery recounts the latest crossfire.
