Yes, I am stealing the segment from the show "NBA Fastbreak" Anyways, make a bold prediction about the ChiSox 04 Season. I'll start off with two:

The White Sox will be Central Division champions
A White Sox player will hit for the cycle

Of course, Sox will win the division.

White Sox win the AL Central, and actually get past the 1st round of the playoffs.

:caballo
Carlos Lee will be in the top ten in AVG HR & RBI.

:eloaiza:
Esteban Loaiza shows that last season was no fluke and goes 22-6.

I'm feeling good about the Big Hurt. I see a monster year from the man.

"Word."

+ Ozzie blossoms into a great manager
+ Division Champs
+ a playoff win! (okay, now I'm getting irrational!) :D:

Koch Finds more CURSED Pilliars in his basement, and Konerko realizes that he's been living over a Cursed pilliar Factory for the past season and a half!

Danny Wright will spend some time in AAA.

Jeremy Reed will be up by June

Crede will make the all star team :o: (actually, I just thought about that, and AROD is now a 3Baseman. So, nevermind)

Marte will have the most saves on the team

KW will make 3 moves midseason

Borchard will prove he belongs in the big leagues at some stage

Pauly returns to a more normal form
Buerhle wins 20
Loazia wins 17
Willie turns out to be decent (if only he can keep away from the ladies)
Crede turns out to be the star we've been waiting for
Rauch ends up being the third starter by year's end
Sox win the division

Rowand kills himself on the outfield fence :)

Buerhle, Konerko and Politte come back to form

Koch will be "decent" not "real good"
Borchard will be become a regular
Lee,Frank,Maggs will be best hitters
Harris/uribe will platoon
Crede @.280, 25 hrs
Loiaza 20, Buehrle 18, Garland 16
Olivia will hit 25 points better, more RBI's and homers
PK @ .289, 29 hrs

We will have one real big surprize and one flop

-- White Sox third in the AL Central. They will begin the year in last place but shortly before the All-Star break they will begin a rally which will carry them over the Indians and Tigers.

Individuals:
Valentin, .245
Crede, .265
Magglio, .290
Thomas, .260
Konerko, .240
Lee, .280
Borchard, .180
Alomar, .240

Buehrle 17-10
Loaiza 13-15
Garland 9-10
Wright 1-8
Fifth Starter: 0-32

Finally, my two optimistic projections:
Rowand, .260
Harris, .230

Thomas quiets his critics and has an MVP season to lock his spot in Cooperstown.
Takatsu has an amazing spring training and wins the closer job over Koch and goes on to win both the rookie of the year and AL reliever of the year award.
White Sox win the division and then knock out one of the big guns in the AL east to go on to win the world series
:)

Hurt hits .300 and 40 HRs
Paulie is back to a respectable .280/21/80
Buehrle wins 18
Loaiza and Garland each win 14
Koch sucks and Ozzie employs a "closer by committee" approach with Marte saving 20 and Takatsu saving 18.
Sox win the division... but that's it (doh!)
