The second edition of the White Sox Interactive Celebrity Chat will be on Sunday, March 9th at 7:00 PM CST.  Taking questions from WSI's totally biased Sox Fans will be Chicago Tribune baseball columnist Phil Rogers!    Learn how you can join the chat and ask Phil your questions below.

Phil Rogers, baseball columnist who coined the term "White Flag Trade" joins WSI's totally biased Sox Fans for chat!

Phil Rogers has been covering baseball for the Chicago Tribune since 1997.  Before covering the Sox for the Tribune that season, he has worked in Dallas for both the Times Herald and the Morning News as both beat writer and national reporter.  He has also worked for the Florida Times-Union, Albuquerque Journal, and Shreveport Journal.

Phil took over the baseball beat for the Tribune in 1998.  He is also a frequent contributor at ESPN and Baseball America.  He authored the book The Impossible Takes a Little Longer.  It's about the Texas Rangers, but the title certainly fits the Sox, too.  His time in Chicago has been quite auspicious, especially from a totally biased Sox Fans' point of view:

It was PHIL who broke the news about an impending sell-off of talent in 1997.

It was PHIL who provided many of the key tidbits (including quotes from ex-teammates) from what became a national story about Frank Thomas's troubles on the cover of Sports Illustrated in March, 2000.

And it was PHIL who coined the term "White Flag Trade" back in 1997, now universally recognized in the world of sport as any attempt to rebuild a team for the future at direct expense to near-term championship opportunities.  Ah yes, such is life for Sox Fans...

Now totally biased Sox Fans at White Sox Interactive get to talk back to PHIL.  Here's how YOU can participate!

How YOU can join WSI's Celebrity Chat with Phil!

As we did with the previous celebrity chat, you can email your questions for Phil to  Send as many as you wish, however we will edit out duplicate questions.  Increase your chances of getting your question asked by asking something unique.  Remember--creativity counts!

Then on Sunday March 9, join us at 7 pm (CST) inside WSI's Chat Room as Phil answers your questions previously sent to him.

Identify yourself by poster name or, if you want your real name used, include it also - first names only please though you can add on your city if you wish (e.g. "Joe from Seattle asks...").

In the event of extra time there is a chance the chat room will be opened for free flow Q & A.

Check this WSI message board thread for the latest details.

Send us those questions and Go Sox!
