Good Things about 2004
The 2004 Sox are sinking fast, but WSI's Hal Vickery finds a few deck chairs worth saving from this lost cause season! One of the reclaimed treasures isn't even on the playing field!
Fate! A primer for Sox Fans.
The 2004 Sox season goes swirling down the drain and the storyline is too well-known to Sox Fans. WSI's Hal Vickery offers this bit of his historical perspective and notes a proven bit of physical law that bears his name!
Sox Fans and the Cubune
The obstinate editor of the Chicago Cubune decides she isn't done holding her breath and stomping her feet! Chicago's summer soap opera rolls on and WSI's George Bova is one amused Sox Fan! Watch out for falling concrete!
The latest bit of sportsblab ignorance revolves around the failure of Ozzie Guillen to improve upon what former skipper Jerry Manuel would have accomplished were he still around. WSI's Hal Vickery wonders about how bad a Manuel-led squad this depleted from injuries might be -- and the intelligence of the goofs on the radio dreaming up this nonsense.
Gaping Holes in Our Sox!
Now that the full effect of losing both the #3 and #4 hitters from the Sox lineup can be fully appreciated, WSI's Hal Vickery can't help but note just how lousy this ballclub truly is unless Frank and Magglio are back!
A team that screams for offensive punch reacquires Robbie Alomar instead? Is it stealth version of a White Flag trade or has Kenny Williams simply lost his mind? Enquiring Sox Fans like WSI's Guy Bacci want to know!
Deadline Dancing with Kenny!
With Kenny Williams at the controls, no trading deadline can ever pass quietly. 2004 was no exception but what does it mean for the future of the Sox? WSI's Hal Vickery is another Sox Fan scratching his head!
