The question is...does this make us even less likely to resign him?

While I realize that their injuries were to different areas, is this bone marrow edema the same type of thing that ended Bo Jackson's career?

I wouldn't sign Maggs for 5 million per right now.

I just hope he recovers fully, whether he's with the Sox or not. Magglio has always been a solid citizen and played hard for the Sox. It sucks to think a guy that's been kind of a regional secret and on the fringe of full blown super star type status could have his career compromised by a freak accident like that. I mean bone marrow edema??? ***.:(:

Nah. Typical White Sox luck would have involved signing him to a contract that guaranteed him Guererro-like money before the injury occured.

Sadly enough, the Sox may have caught a break when Maggs turned down the contract(s).

Wow, that article is a bummer. You hate to see something like that about Maggs even if he wasn't going to sign with us. I mean, after all this time he STILL doesn't have proper blood flow to the leg and if they are wondering if he'll be ready for the '05 season, I would have to assume this injury could be career threatening. As much as it pains me to say this, if Magglio is still hurt at the start of '05, KW might be better off building the team without him rather than throw money at an injury risk.:(:

And I've been saying this since August and finally someone here agrees. I don't want Maggs, he tried to hold the Sox for ransom, KW was smart enough to say no and now Maggs is screwed. Sorry, I like you Maggs, until you tried to ask for too much money that is. Have fun in Montreal!

Go Bears:
You mean Washington right? And as long as he's getting paid I don't think he'll have a bad time anywhere he winds up.

You make it sound like you are almost glad he got hurt. Held the Sox to ransom? What a bunch of B.S.

Well, maybe Portland or Norfolk. I'm not glad he got hurt, but I won't be shelling out sympathy for him.

I expect he's gonna become Tribune property. They'd love to acquire some more White Sox home runs.

The cubs lack power as much as we do. Send 'em Willie for Walker.

Even more sadlier, we paid him Guerrero like money to sit on the bench this year :(:
