View Full Version : Does a better second half beckon?

Traditionally, we have better second halves than first halves. Like the rest of you, I was impressed with how Todd Ritchie pitched tonight. As far as our hitters were concerned, I think we were just overwhelmed by ace Tom Glavine. If we get more performances like that out of Ritchie, we will get White Sox winners with them.

Of course, the only real thing that could stop us from having a good second half -- other than injuries or Nardi mound visits -- is...Donald Fehr.

Blaming Fehr without tossing half the blame to Bud is ludicrous.

Get real.

Right after he made his mound visit to give Ritchie the scouting report on Darren Bragg, Tood gave a single that moved Garcia to third. Garcia scored the winning run.

You are right about Uncle Bud, but I think Fehr will be the catalyst.

Of course he will,the players have no choice but to strike,Bud could have gotten everything he wanted by letting the Expos go bankrupt,he chose not to.

I hope you are right. this 1st half has been pretty brutal.

I agree with Daver's contention.

Yea it'll be a shame for all these "so called" easy wins against Tampa Bay, Detroit, Kansas City and Toronto to get cancelled.

Hopefully the Sox will be at least a game over.500 when the labor impasse shuts down the season, at least then some good memories will come out of this disappointing campaign.

Lets hope so because everytime you hear manuel talk so far this season it's sounds like he's playing to just stay up there with the twinkies & make a run in the 2nd half.
GO WHITE SOX
MAYBE manuel's BRAIN WILL WAKEUP IN TIME FOR THE 2nd HALF OF THE SEASON! :gulp: :gulp: :gulp:

Collusion has to go down as the worse move by an ownership group ever. We are still feeling its effects, with the lack of trust and the unneeded expansion in 93.
