Thanks for stating the obvious, Hawkeroo. Only thing is, they've been "out-intensified" since about October 2000. I have a definite feeling that a lot of odds and ends will be getting done around the Procol house this year. After 42 years of personal frustration, I don't think I have loads of time to waste on a team that will struggle to play .500 baseball.

Hawk spews so much bull****, at times I think he actually believes what he says. How were the Sox "out-intensified"? Did he even try to elaborate on what that means?

i'd be interested to know what information you possess that makes you think you can have an informed opinion about that.

I didn't see the game so I don't know how bad the umpiring was or if the Sox were out-intensified. I don't know how a team cannot be intense in the first week of the season. When they are out of it in last week of September, maybe. It is still too early to panic, but it is not too early for the Sox to wake up and realize that they cannot fall into old patterns. Once you get into the habit of losing, it is hard to get out of the mind set. The team needs to think hard about these three games and blaming the umpires won't cut it. Contending teams don't look for excuses. They just win.

Last time I checked, the manager didn't do the fielding. How can you put 5-6 errors on the manager?

I think by "out-intensified" Hawk really meant: The Royals are a heck of a lot better than us right now.

That's about what it boils down to...and the compo has been better than us since October 2000. I don't know whether or not or how much of the Sox' lethargy can be laid at Jerry Manuel's door, but it ain't good. At some point you begin to wonder whether ours is another case of Chicago fans falling head-over-heels in love with their players and hence beiong unable to see that they really aren't as good as we all thought/hoped they were.

Be careful to note what Hawk says about any topic concerning the White Sox. He is--by far-- the biggest mouthpiece for what Jerry Reinsdorf is thinking.

If Hawk is already placing blame at Jerry Manuel's feet, you can be pretty sure the manager is on the end of a short rope.

You are right Duke, but it's more than that. It's been a combination of bad defense, pass balls, wild pitches, poor relief, no speed on the basebaths, untimely hitting, inability to hit pitchers we've never heard of...basically we are f***ed.

The good news is we are leaving Kansas City. The bad news is Detroit just got swept as well and they too are due for a win...and unfortunatly they'll probably get it.
