Nice little piece by Cowley this morning. Glad that Alexis is feeling more like part of the team. We're going to need him to hit better than .200 this year.

I feel at home in my apartment, that doesn't mean I'm going to hit above .200 this year.

What does this mean? Is this similar to "pwned"? :scratch:

Its pretty apparenty everyone on the White Sox is poised to have a career year.

It's from an episode of The Office. Michael set up a roast of himself, and didn't find it amusing. He then came back into the office and roasted the staff. After every putodwn, he ended it with "Boom. Roasted."

Well I didn't recall the exact place it came from, but I did get the joke, I was trying to be witty. Epic failure on my part...:(: :tongue:

Anyway, here's hoping Rios has a good year. He's a key to our offense.

Yeah, I'm usually not too ambitious when I'm at home :D:. Just kidding. I want Rios do be great or at least pretty good.

I definitely think he's going to rebound this season.

Except the Royals and Pirates and Nationals. They won't have that feeling for a long time.

He really can't get much worse than what he did with us.

Sure he can. I'm just not going to piss and moan and btich about how bad he is until I actually see him for a full season. I have a feeling that at the end of the season, I won't have to.

I don't think he can do much worse than his .199/.229/.309 line with us last year. I agree that he is due for a bounce back and it is a bit quick to write him off for 41 bad games.

Rios had one bad year. Now he well might be washed up and done, that also might just have been one bad year. I have my fingers crossed. If he returns to the form that earned him this contract, we will have a heck of a player manning CF for us.

Point well made. Show us, Alex. (The putdowns were funny too.)

Last April a lot of people were talking up the Royals. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens again this April.

Last I checked Dayton Moore was still their GM.

I didn't say the Royals will contend. But some people in the national media will, as they did last year, regardless of who the Royals employ as their GM.

Of course, they make a nice story. Greinke will single-handedly make them a compelling story for the next few years.

I didn't understand the Royal Love last year. I don't understand the Tiger Love this year. I don't see how that team can win this division. I've been wrong before - but I just don't see it.

I'm with you on both accounts. As much hand-wringing we have done here about the DH position, I much prefer our lineup to Detroit's (Cabrera notwithstanding, of course), our rotation to theirs, and feel slightly better about our bullpen. Just like with KC last year, I don't get what others are seeing in Detroit.

As far as I'm concerned with Rios, last year never happened. Clean slate, and I'm expecting a .275 avg, 15-20 homers, 30-40 doubles and 80 RBIs. He'll always be overpaid offensively, but hopefully his defense saves some runs.

Most of it has to do with the fact that if you win 90 games, you win the Central.

True, but I see an 80-82 win team at best in Detroit.

I'll be happy with a career average year. Most of these guys have pretty good career averages.

Right. Pierre, Rios and Jones at career average years would be muy good for our offense.

So?

4 teams made the playoffs last year with 93 or fewer wins.

4 teams made the playoffs in 08 with 93 or fewer wins including 2 with under 90 wins.

4 teams made the playoffs in 07 with 90 wins or fewer.

90 wins is a VERY good season. Very few 90 win teams DON'T make the playoffs - we got unfortunate in 06.

Add 15-20 stolen bases and I'll be more than happy.

I'll take his defense over what we've had in the field the last couple years, even if Dewayne Wise did make "The Catch"

I definitely think he's going to rebound this season.I do too. The fact that Dye and Podsednik are not on the Sox anymore, may have something to do with him feeling better.
