Who is your #1 favorite baseball team?
Chicago White Sox

Harold Baines. I remember my dad pointing him out to be when I was really young and saying "Watch #3....he can hit."

Who is your favorite player on your team, only picking one?
Mark Buehrle. For what he has done and his demeanor. I hope I don't have to but I would cheer for him on another team, even the Cubs.

Have you ever met any members of your team?
Does getting Frank Thomas' autograph at SoxFest count?

What relief pitcher is your favorite on your team?
Matt Thornton. He is so good he can pitch strike three when he throws ball four! :redneck

Toronto

We'll see...:D:

Who is your team's centerfielder?
Alex Rios

It just did. The Metrodome! Back in the day it would have been Kent Hrbek.

The Twins, of course.

What team do you enjoy playing the most?
The Cubs - when we win. The rest of the time? Probably KC.

Who is your #1 favorite baseball team?
Chicago White Sox

Who was the manager when you began watching?
Gene Lamont

Who is your favorite player of all time from the team that is no longer with the team?
Robin Ventura. I idolized him, and even made sure I got a Robin Ventura-branded Rawlings glove when I began Little League.

Who is your favorite player on your team, only picking one?
A.J. Pierzynski. He just adds that element of confidence when he plays.

Have you ever met any members of your team?
Nope.

What relief pitcher is your favorite on your team?
I'd have to go with Thornton.

What is the furthest you ever traveled to see your team play?
Sadly, haven't seen them outside of Chicago...but Wrigley Field.

Are you happy with your team's offseason moves so far?
On the surface, yes. They shored up their leadoff problem, got some good backup players, and signed a good reliever, all glaring holes going into the offseason. If I had to grade now, I'd give the offseason a B...if we get a true DH, that B turns into an A.

Who is your team's centerfielder?
Alex Rios

Who is the first pitcher in your team's starting rotation?
Either Peavy or Buehrle...can't go wrong with either one.

Have you ever seen your team on Opening Day before?
Nope, sadly.

Do you know the name of your team's mascot?
Southpaw.

What is your team's home run song?
Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye.

Do you own any jerseys of your team?
No, but I do have a few jersey T-shirts.

What team inside your own division would you not mind winning the division if your team can't?
The Royals. They would be the only team in the division I would actively root for in the playoffs.

Think of the team inside your own division you dislike the most. What member of the team based on skill would you want on your team?
Mauer, no question.

Now think about that team again. What player would you just like to see leave baseball altogether?
Nick Punto, since he sucks against everyone else, yet miraculously kills the Sox every time he plays against us.

Back to your team, finally! What player on your team would make a great manager one day?
Definitely AJ. He's got a great mind for baseball, and catchers generally make the best managers anyway.

What is your least favorite team for your team to face and why?
The Twins, because they could win 35 games a season...and 17 of those would come against the Sox. It seems like they always give the Sox hell.

What team do you enjoy playing the most?
Probably Cleveland...it seems like every game is a good game when the Sox face off against them.

What pitcher makes you the most nervous when he warms up?
LLLLLLinebrink.

Probably the Red Sox since it's a rare occurrance now.

Bobby Seay beause he's a lefty and that usually means a situation warrants him. A guy on base or Joe Mauer's coming up. Plus he wasn't very good against lefties one season.
