Who do you think will be the biggest breakout player for the whitesox this year?
between Fields, Getz, Anderson or whoever takes centerfield instead of him
sorry this was supposed to be a poll but somehow i managed to mess it up....
Personally i think Fields will have the best year of the three but Getz has a chance to make the biggest impact

Contrary to what most baseball fans think, "BA" is not "batting average."

BA will be the starting CF for the entire season and will make us forget Aaron Rowand.

He may have a good year but come on. Can he, or any one, match the fire and the passion of Aaron Rowand?

If Anderson is given a chance, he's going to prove a lot of people on this board wrong, and a few of us, very very right.

I almost feel like Darby O'Gill trying to convince you that King Brian is right there in my sack and its not a rabbit.

Fields is most likely. Getz has a shot. Longshot is Clayton Richard.

Fields with his repaired knee and Getz who showed a lot of potential during his cup of coffee last year will be 2009's versions of Alexei and TCQ.

On the pitching front I predict Richard and Poreda will make us not regret having them on the 25 man roster.

Brian Anderson will finally add some stick to his glove and lock hold of the centerfield position.:praying:

I think/hope it will be Josh.

I sure hope Poreda doesn't make it. The kid just isn't ready. His breaking ball looks like a high school kid trying to figure out how to throw one. He has a chance to be good, but hes going to get SHELLED.

I still am pulling for Richard in the bullpen. I think he could be a DOMINANT lefty specialist vs an average at best back end starter.

Anyway it has already been decided.

2 years at soxfest I told Javy Vazquez I think hes going to break out huge this year, and he won 15 with a sub 4 era.

Last year I told Gavin Floyd the same thing, and we know how that ended.

This year it was Getz I told would be ROTY. Clearly I have something going here, and I am sticking with it.

Instead of who I think it will be, I'll say who I hope it will be. And that would be Anderson. If Fields or Getz can't fill their roles effectively, there are guys waiting in the minors to take their spot. If Anderson continues his struggles at the plate, there isn't a great option B.

I don't know who it'll be, but one of Fields, Getz, or Anderson will solidify our lineup for a little while. My money is on Fields.

I'll go with Getz. I'll say he ends up around .290 with 20 or so SB's. Fields will do good, as in lots of HR's with a .250 avg, but we know he can do that already.

Getz and Fields, Josh is too good of an athlete to fail and in Getz we might have a 2nd baseman in the Nellie Fox mold.

I think it will be Getz.

I'm not necessarily voting for him, but Wilson Betemit should be on the list.

A breakout season from Fields would mean the most production, so that would be best for the Sox as a whole. But I think Getz is going to have the most impact. I swear I have not seen him have 1 bad AB this spring. If he carries this into the season, watch out. I'm over Brian Anderson. I love to watch him go get it, but I hate to see him in the batter's box.

Why? He's a 27-year old utility player.

Please return the bong or I will alert the police of your thievery.

I hope it's BA due to all of the reasonably legit backup options at 2B.

As I stated in a post back in November, isn't it really way too early to try to assess Betemit's potential to contribute? After all, he has only had 1,098 Major League at bats. Ted Williams used to say that it takes about 1,000 at bats, at the Big League level, to "figure it out". There aren't that many guys who come up and excel immediately.

The word is that he is really swinging a good bat. I like him as a left handed hitter.

The Sox need it to be BA and/or Fields, but I suspect both will fail to perform at the level needed of a starting MLB ball-player. Getz will probably "surprise" by putting up a decent line in his first year as a starter.

I liked Getz in his brief visit last year, and I like him even better every time I see him. His inside-the-park HR against Cleveland was one of the few bright spots in that first Sox/Tribe game.

Joe Borchard was a great athlete, it didn't help him much. You don't have to be a good athlete to be a good ballplayer.

For the sake of our team I really hope its a SP. We are going to need at least 1 young SP to step up and pitch effectively this year if we are going to be successful. No idea who that is going to be, because none of them have looked particularly good thus far.

If I was being serious I think I should have my White Sox fan card removed. I really do hope BA can hit for a decent average. Along with his glove if he can just hit .275 he will definitely be the breakout player for the Sox.:bandance::bandance::bandance:
