It appears this team has no rudder. Are these the reasons why?

The Sox leader is...

Not Frank Thomas. He has never been vocal in the clubhouse.

Not Jose Valentin. His moment was two years ago, which not coincidentally was the last time Jerry Manuel gave him an everyday playing position.

Not Mark Buehrle. He's too young, and when he did speak up, it was about leaving for St. Louis.

Not Ken Lofton. He's been with the club just five months and is currently hurt.

Not Ray Durham. Manuel has tried repeatedly to make him a leader, but the guy only succeeds in putting his foot in his mouth.

Not Magglio. English is still a bit of a challenge for him.

Not Konerko. He's wound too tight over his own performance to stay focused very long on the team's effort.

Not Alomar. The guy's knees are too weak to keep him around enough.

Could be Foulke if he didn't suck so bad lately. Nobody's gonna listen to him.

I guess I would say Maggs. So what if he isn't great at English? He's still an awesome player. Either him or Konerko. It's a close call.

Is there anybody on the Sox the past two years that receives less respect from the Sox brass than Mark Johnson? The Sox keep searching for guys to be the #1 catcher and they can't find anybody that is better than their current back up.

Fordyce.
Paul.
Alomar.

Charles Johnson was superior, but Lord knows Reinsdorf wasn't going to pay to keep him around.

Is there any sense to the Sox personnel moves? I'm really beginning to wonder...

I can't believe George missed the obvious, runaway winner for the title "leader" of this White Sox team...

:hitless

Frank! Maggs! Go get my glove and bubblegum, stat!

Sorry didnt mean to snap on you about it, i just quoted your post. I knew about the winter thing but i thought maybe something was printed last week about it, it was a long week and i didnt have much time to read any papers. Do i know for a fact that he wasn't joking, ofcourse not but Ill believe Buehrle when he says that it was a joke before ill believe anyone else that it wasn't. Unless PHG has credible prove that what he said was not a joke and he meant every word of it I think it is bull**** that he uses it to discredit him as a leader of the team.
