I am getting tired of the asinine predictions and comments by the self-appointed Oracle, Peter Gammons. I would like to start a list of comments/predictions that he has made this year that have proven to be dead-wrong. It never comes up on Baseball Tonight, ESPN.com or ESPN radio, where he slings his BS on a daily basis, that he has his head permanently lodged up his tail-pipe.

I'll lead-off:

1) The White Sox have the best rotation in baseball, spots 1 through 4.

2)The Red Sox will trade for Alex Rodriquez, all the details are worked out.

2a)Alex Rodriguez will be with the Red Sox within a matter of hours.

3) The Cubs will sign Ivan Rodriguez.

Let us also not forget that either last year or '02 he suggested that the White Sox be considered for contraction. :angry:

I'll never forgive that tool for that ridiculous comment.

Read this article:

On the Triple-A horizon, the White Sox have a monster third baseman named Joe Crede and catcher Josh Paul (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/profiles/profile/6354.html), whose makeup is tremendous.
Ron Schueler and his aides Dan Evans, Larry Monroe and Duane Shaffer -- has shown a unique ability to judge talent, especially pitching.
And then at the end of this season, one can be certain Reinsdorf will make a run at what Schueler thinks he needs, and that might include free agent Alex Rodriguez (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/profiles/profile/5275.html).
By that time, Ordonez may be a five-time All-Star and the king of the city, while Garland, Wells and the rest of the young pitchers are dominating the American League. And, hey, maybe A-Rod, or someone like him, will be there by then.
