THE WHITE SOX STRONGEST FEATURES AS A TEAM ? Good food at the ballpark. As far as the team on the field goes, there are a few strong players (Ordonez, Buehrle, Loaiza, Marte) but not much else.
THE SOX ARE WEAKEST AS A TEAM AT? Almost everywhere else.

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR STARTING PITCHING 1-10(HIGH) 6. Most teams don't have a top two as good as Buehrle and Loaiza, and Garland's a good #4. Finding a #3 and a #5 wouldn't be hard, if only we tried.

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR HITTING 5. Decent power, but no on-base skills, no speed, and no balance. We've seen how far solo homers get us.

ALSO OUR FIELDING? 5. Serviceable.

WHO DO YOU SEE AS DUE TO "BUST OUT" SOON.PLAYERWISE Jeremy Reed, although I'm afraid he'll be playing for a manager who won't appreciate his on-base skills.

WHO DO YOU SEE AS GOING DOWNHILL? PLAYERWISE. Thomas, but he used to be so amazing that he's still a good hitter. Valentin.

HOW DO YOU RATE THE FANS:
FOR ENTHUSIASIM? Fair.
FOR KNOWLEDGE Poor, but no worse than other teams' fans.
FOR SUPPORT Incomplete. Team hasn't deserved support lately.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEATURES OF US CELLULAR FIELD. Food.

WHAT DONT YOU LIKE ABOUT THE PARK? I don't care one bit about the park if the team's good.

DO YOU THINK THE SOX HAVE A GOOD FUTURE AHEAD? No. Honestly, I think they'll be a leading candidate for contraction.

IF SO HOW?

IN YOUR OPINION WHAT IN THE PAST HAVE THE SOX(ORGINIZATION) DNE THAT YOU THOUGHT WAS
NEWS BREAKING. This has never been a team to make news or set trends. Reinsdorf's willingness to sacrifice the '94 season to hurt the players' union is the biggest story of the last two decades.

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE THAT YOU DISAPROVED OF. Underestimating the fans. Being cheap, passing off bad managers, bringing in washed-up players, blaming the fans for all their problems.

RATE THE SOX MANAGERS YOU HAVE LIKED Torborg, Manuel (until 2000 playoffs), LaRussa (though not as much as I should have), Lemon

DISLIKED? Bevington, Fregosi, Lamont, Manuel (after 2000 playoffs)

HOW DO YOU THINK OZZIE GUILLEN WILL DO AS MANAGER. I think he'll be terrible. Why would you expect someone who made so many bad decisions as a player to be a good manager?

HOW MANY WINS DO YOU SEE THIS SEASON? 77

WILL THEY BEAT THE CUBS? Of course.

Too many questions!

Why don't you use a rating system for a majority of them, i.e. 1 (worst) to 5 (best) or from strongly disagree to strongly agree?

THE WHITE SOX STRONGEST FEATURES AS A TEAM?: Right-handed corner OF/1B/DH types.
THE SOX ARE WEAKEST AS A TEAM AT?: Baseball common sense. I've never seen a team make as many stupid mistakes as the Sox have over the last few seasons. They Never seem to know the game situations, where they are at, or what they are doing.

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR STARTING PITCHING 1-10(HIGH): 6.5

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR HITTING: 6...As always, we are overloaded with righties.

ALSO OUR FIELDING?: Overall 7

WHO DO YOU SEE AS DUE TO "BUST OUT" SOON?: Jon Rauch

WHO DO YOU SEE AS GOING DOWNHILL?: Aaron Rowand (Can he get worse?)

HOW DO YOU RATE THE FANS: Overall...6.5
FOR ENTHUSIASM: 5 (Heading into this season)
FOR KNOWLEDGE: 9
FOR SUPPORT: 6

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEATURES OF US CELLULAR FIELD?: 1) Watching the pinwheels light up & seeing fireworks after Sox HRs. 2) The Food - It's all good! 3) Miller Beer :gulp:

WHAT DON'T YOU LIKE ABOUT THE PARK?: The fact that it is no longer "Comiskey Park".

DO YOU THINK THE SOX HAVE A GOOD FUTURE AHEAD?: Yes...Is there such a thing as a future behind? :D:


IN YOUR OPINION WHAT IN THE PAST HAVE THE SOX(ORGANIZATION) DONE THAT YOU THOUGHT WAS
NEWS BREAKING?: In the recent past...The Albert Belle signing, the White Flag trade, traded Foulke for Koch & Traded for Bart Colon.

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE THAT YOU DISAPPROVED OF?: Treated Pudge like ****, hired Terry Bevington, hired Sleepy LeMont, let Jerry Manuel keep his job too long, brought Hal Baines back two times too many, I'd go on but this is getting depressing.

RATE THE SOX MANAGERS YOU HAVE LIKED: Ugh.. 1) LaRussa
2) Lopez 3) Torborg 4) Guillen (Hell, he's undefeated.)

DISLIKED?: Bevington, Sleepy, Jerry Manuel (during his last season & a half)

HOW MANY WINS DO YOU SEE THIS SEASON?: Seriously...92

WILL THEY BEAT THE CUBS?: Always!

THE WHITE SOX STRONGEST FEATURES AS A TEAM ? solid defensive catcher, solid all-around 3rd baseman, underrated DH who should be playing 1B and a strong bullpen
THE SOX ARE WEAKEST AS A TEAM AT? uniting together and showing passion for the game they play

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR STARTING PITCHING 1-10(HIGH) almost just as stated above, solid 1-2 of Loazia and Buerhle who would dominate as 2-3 under a top No. 1 starter like Colon, Garland is a solid No. 5 still in my book by a decent No. 4. pitching has to be the no. 1 priority w/ an offense like this. all in all, a 5.5

HOW DO YOU RATE OUR HITTING strong heart of the order when working, however when one link goes bad so does the chain. too much righty power, too many DPs and a below average lower half with no leadoff hitter

ALSO OUR FIELDING? slightly above average, but that is not necessarily a bad thing

WHO DO YOU SEE AS DUE TO "BUST OUT" SOON.PLAYERWISE joe crede

WHO DO YOU SEE AS GOING DOWNHILL? PLAYERWISE. schoenweis... ugh, valentin has already went down far enough and will stay where he's at offensively, thomas will improve if at 1B but can only decline as DH, danny wright

HOW DO YOU RATE THE FANS: out of 10
FOR ENTHUSIASIM? 8 - they are only pessimistic because they were raised that way
FOR KNOWLEDGE 7 - true baseball fans
FOR SUPPORT 6 - only because i know there are a lot more sox fans than those who show up at the park, but then again you can only take so much crap

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEATURES OF US CELLULAR FIELD.
the fact that the sox play there
WHAT DONT YOU LIKE ABOUT THE PARK?
the fact that the sox lose there
DO YOU THINK THE SOX HAVE A GOOD FUTURE AHEAD?
only if we can oust the regime
IF SO HOW?

IN YOUR OPINION WHAT IN THE PAST HAVE THE SOX(ORGINIZATION) DNE THAT YOU THOUGHT WAS
NEWS BREAKING.
giving the media enough information to run negative stories that serve only to cripple the organization. they should have known that the media would jump on any story that could harm the team out of frustration from lack of offseason activity.
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE THAT YOU DISAPROVED OF.
too many things to list, most notably the above.
RATE THE SOX MANAGERS YOU HAVE LIKED
hahahaha.
DISLIKED?
and i should start where?
HOW DO YOU THINK OZZIE GUILLEN WILL DO AS MANAGER.
much better than expected. hopefully this teams undergoes a major overhaul. this team doesn't just need fundamentally sound players or speed or on base percentage, it needs a swift kick in the ass.
HOW MANY WINS DO YOU SEE THIS SEASON?
87
WILL THEY BEAT THE CUBS?
depends on if any of the Cubs outfielders can walk or not
