If you've looked at the 2004 season schedule, what do you think? How will April go?

I'm thinking 13W-9L

Hopefully one that will have them in first place. That would be a very nice birthday present for them to give me. :)

Realistically I would say 12-10.

Will we have a CF, a 2B, a 4th starter and a 5th starter by then? Or will we be watching Harris, Crash, Rauch and Schoenweis? That's the difference between 14-8 and 9 - 13 to me.

We'll have those guys, and they'll be just fine. Rowand and Harris are a couple of hard workers. They have talent as well, and just need time to show it. You'll see, these guys are good players. I am worried about Schoenweiss though.

Grinders, huh? Lovely...

I wouldn't mind them if one was a true leadoff hitter (higher OBP) and the other was a solid defensive CF who could cover for the defensive liabilities we have in our OF and the rather spacious OF at home. I wouldn't mind it if we had some studs elsewhere at positions where you normally don't (SS, 3B, C) to make up for them - but we dont.

We have a below average payroll and we put a below average product on the field.

< Nightmare> Crash gets late jump on fly ball - it goes over his head - he hits wall - dopey fans cheer his effort </ nightmare>

If the Sox go 7-0 against the Yankees, the remainder of my season will be a drunken blur...

I got your back... 15W-5L.

There will be 1 rain out at Cleveland (April showers, you know), and one snow-out at KC (only because I already have my tickets right behind the visitors -- Sox -- dugout... the weather always seems to be my enemy).

Why :gulp: do :gulp: I :gulp: predict :gulp: such :gulp: a :gulp: tremendous :gulp: start? :gulp:

I dunno :D:

They play 7 against the Yanks, 5 against KC, and 2 against Toronto.

No Detroit games until after the ASB. :o:

I'm a hard worker too. If the sox had 9 of me on the field, they'd go winless all season.

You work hard for your standards. These guys are on another level, even Hawk comments how hard these guys work and their high ceiling potential. It's easy to shoot them down because they still have to prove their ability, but how can they if you just sit them all the time. They can't keep producing in AAA their whole career. Read what Rowand's workout regiment is in the offseason in the white sox homepage.

You can't keep forming unfair opinions on those two. Harris had a hundred and fifty sparatic at bats while playing his unnatural position. Rowand couldn't workout all offseason from his shoulder injury, and then his wrist injury. When he came back from his stint in AAA in July he batted .387 for the rest of the season with his new stance.

I think 6-16 because I have a feeling they will struggle against Tampa Bay and in Kanas City

If the plays the whole month of April with what they have now, then I'm going with 9-13.

Yeah, if they got to play Detroit right off the bat they would probably only take at the most one game a series or get swept. Shut down by that dominating staff and lit up by their outstanding line-up. :(: They better smash the ball against them this year to make up for last years pathetic record against them.

Have the Sox ever called up a player that Hawk didn't love?

:hawk

"Mark Johnson's got a chance to be a real solid player."

"You won't find many left-handers with a better arm than Scott Eyre."

"If Liefer gets regular at-bats, he's gonna do some damage."
