Spoke well of Frank, and says if they are in a big game and need a last out Foulke's his guy and that most of team feels that way.

This isn't surprising. I think Foulke will eventually be reinstated as the closer sometime next season, assuming Manuel stops changing his mind every five minutes.

I think many of the players learned an important lesson from this past season, and that lesson is this: In order to become a contending team, it is necessary to focus on winning, and doing anything and everything necessary to achieve that end.

Team chemistry should be better next year. I don't think we will see anymore squabbling amungst players. Durham is gone, and Royce Clayton took his island with him when he was released.

I think they'll end up dealing Foulke near the deadline. Seeing how his contract is up after this year.

How about learning to trust your guys with the real talent. Foulke came around and outside of saves which are dependant on being in the game at a certain time his numbers don't look much different than the last couple years.

Even Frank finished up strong, not saying that justifies his extraordinarily weak points during the season but it's not like Aaron Rowand or Jeff Liefer are actually better.

Right, cause Ray was such a clubhouse disruption.

Well Royce was the big point of that IMO....bad clubhouse, bad for the team on the field....Jose is a leader and he'll make his errors, but chemistry wise it certainly would appear to help to have him at SS....Also with the fact that Paulie seems to be taking more of a leadership role that could help...and if i recall Durham never had the best of clubhouse reputations...I remember people thinking he was "tough", but that doesnt translate into comaradiery

Konerko's still in Chicago? I thought most of the players took off for Arizona, or wherever they live, as soon as the season ended!
