According to BA:

Overall C+

Chicago White Sox

MAJOR LEAGUES C
Slumping major league team perked up after midseason trades of veterans like Kenny Lofton and ended up at .500.

MINOR LEAGUES C
Birmingham won Southern and Bristol won Appalachian, but overall teams were .466; left Arizona League for new affiliate in Great Falls.

TALENT LEVEL B
Joe Crede led latest crop of new big leaguers, and Joe Borchard could be ready soon; Corwin Malone and other prospects faltered.

PLAYER PROCUREMENT C
Conservative draft focused on pitching, and deadline deals also brought in more arms.

ORGANIZATION DIRECTION C
Kenny Williams tries youth after raising payroll and weakening system without big league success; Big Hurtís departure signals new era.

awesome. thanks for posting that. in a ba chat today, will lingo said he thought that along with the cubs and maybe also the rangers and pirates we were one of the C rated teams that had the best chance of having breakthrough seasons in the near future.

Didn't realize Frank was gone yet, or did I miss something in the last few hours?

To my knowledge, Frank has yet to sign a contract with another team. Until he does that, he returns to the Sox on Dec 7. IMO there is not a team out there where he can get the same amount of money over the same time period.

I think you just have to read more into their comments.
