My man SoxOnTop mentioned it, I have to give him credit. This would be an outstanding move, if things had to go that way.

Ellis is a winner and a producer. One of my most favorite White Sox players of all time.

In any case, this ARod stuff isn't going down. KW, just sit tight, play AR and WH and get some relievers. If you do nothing, perhaps all the better ...

No to Burks. Guy'll be 40 years old.

"Ellis Burks Bandwagon"?! I haven't even started drinking yet and my eyes are playing tricks... :gulp:

Ellis would be a fantastic pickup...if it was 1990.

Ellis is a professional hitter and a good guy but the man is 40, has bad knees and can't do anything but DH. The Sox already have enough one dimensional, station to station sluggers.

Ellis Burks? Does our Disabled List need some depth too?

Well, Sandy could use some company when he's on it.

If we can dump Thomas or Konerko, I see no problem with signing Burks.

Of course, that is a big if.

I know, I know...I'm probably the most nostalgic guy on this sight but I can remember that double heddar against Texas when they could have clinched in 93. He made an outstanding catch in right and if I remember correctly he had some clutch hits that day along with Newsom. The key word in this post is nostalgic. That was 10 years ago. I would pass on Burks which is the overwhelming response so far...which means he'll be on the Sox payroll list tomorrow.

I'd agree with this. Where would he play? The Sox still need a second baseman and center fielder. Burks isn't a second baseman, and he hasn't played center field since 1998.

I guess he might make a decent fifth outfielder or pinch-hitter, but bench players should have some utility value, and Burks isn't very versatile.

And it's still a bad idea. This guy would make Harold Baines bat look fast right now.

If we've been reduced to retro fantasies, WHAT ABOUT Harold Baines? Unretire that number and give the man a contract!
