This is underwhelming even by minor league standards.

Maybe we can trade him for Durham. I think Durham would be of more use, even at 38.

We're sort of putting the band back together.

If I were a Charlotte Knights fan, I guess I'd be pissed? :shrug:

I was at that 16 inning game he coughed up vs. the Twins in August of '05 :angry::angry::angry::angry::angry::angry:... thanks for making me vomit up dinner.

That game pretty much summed up his White Sox career.

This is the big move we've been waiting for. Under the radar Kenny!

That reminds me that I knew there was no way the Cubs were going to win the World Series in 2008, the year of all the centennial hoopla, because I knew there was no way the fates would allow World Series rings for both the White Sox and Cubs to fall into the hands of Neal Cotts.

Back when Adkins was pitching for the Sox, I was frequently able to impress my wife by saying, "Hey, wanna see someone hit a home run?"

Jon rarely disappointed.

Cotts earned his ring in 2005, pitching in all four WS games, winning one. I don't know what the hell happened to him afterwards though.

Meh. I was more of a fan of Terry Leach's time with the White Sox.

Is Barry Jones available? Maybe we can find lightning in a bottle after his stellar year in 1990.

Well, I'll give you credit for putting it in the right forum, but it was done yesterday.

Where is it posted? Nobody posted it?

I am happy you can give me your credit though.

It was in the Clubhouse about half way do the page. Now I merged it with your thread here.

My bad, figured a minor league contract meant the thread was to be put into minor observations.
