Yesterday during the Sox broadcast Gallas was on with Farmer and Gallas said that the Sox have a brand spanking new scoreboard. Gallas said the Jumbotron is twice as jumbo as the one from before.

Then on the postgame show, Dave Wills said he thought, based on conversations with Sox front office people last fall, that the new jumbotron would be in left field where the lineups and matrix displays were. He was hoping that someone from the Sox would call to confirm, but I had to do other things and didn't hear if anyone did.

Actually, I was listening (while stuck in all that damn traffic from the Big10 Tourney at the United Center) and he said this scoreboard would now take up the space of the 2 scoreboards currently there. Hopefully, i'll get a better look at it 3/22 for the open house.....

just spoke to a "friend" of mine who kind of works on the project... he said this is definitely going to be 1 big scoreboard, as opposed to the 2 that are on the scoreboard now. Said its very hi-tech, and believes thats why the crane is out there (also for the new bleachers in center.

There's no doubt that the brand spanking new stuff is being unveiled for the All-Star game this year, I just hope that they banish the cheer-o-meter so they can save it from being tainted. By the way is this thing HDTV ready?

Thanks you US Cellular. I think I will use my cell phone all weekend to help pay for it. I wish they had wireless Internet access like Sprint, then I could pay for it single-handedly just by keeping up with WSI.

YES, its supposed to be 1 scoreboard now (the 2 we have now, but put together now) will have the same Features as Both, just on one board now. at least thats what i was told Friday.

If I understood Gallas then the new scoreboard will be in left to left centerfield. If that is true then it keeps the rightfield HR porch idea still viable.

Don't have any WSI gear yet, but I'll keep a look out.
