I just wanted to gauge the optimism (or lack thereof) for next year. Alot obviously depends on who KW goes out and gets, but as of right now...What are your expectations for the team in 2005?

Too soon to predict. Let's see what Kenny does first.

(Plus right now I'm feeling too pessimistic about this subject and am hoping for something to grasp at in the near future.)

Depends. If we CREATE MORE HOLES IN OUT very Hole oriented lineup ....
78 wins
If we Fill the Holes We Created the last 2 yrs, but dont fill the rest of lineup....
84 wins
If we simply stand still and go with what we have ....... again.......
80 wins
If we Go out and Get Randy Johnson, Carlos Beltran and get bullpen help ....
98 wins

I don't know; it seems like whatever moves the Sox make, the win total is always between 80-86.

I know there's not a whole lot to talk about at this point in the season, but trying to guess next year's win total is a little tough.

Moves will be made this winter. I'm reserving my prediction until ST.

Heh heh hehehheee.
Remember in 2000, we had Sirotka, Eldred, Parque, Baldwin,
and all 4 got hurt during the season? The SOX response in the offseason?
Trade Sirotka for David Wells. Net gain 0. We went into the season
with question marks all thru the pitching staff, 2001 was brutal.

I still don't know how the hell that 2000 team won more than 90 games. Anomaly, I guess.

No, I'd rather bitch and moan than to hold off judgement until spring training.

Somewhere between 81 and 84 and we'll fininsh in second... I wish the whitesox were a Stock in the stock market... You can feel when the peak and when the hit low points... I'd be a millionaire by now.

Because Eldred and Sirotka were LIGHTS OUT the first half. They pitched like TRUE #1 & #2 starters. The big problem, though, was Eldred got hurt indefinitely, and Sirotka got traded for Wells, which in a sense was like just
trading #2 starters. We still didnt Acquire a #1 (or 2 depending on how you look at it) and it showed in the standings the very next year.
This team Rolls the Dice far far too much for being a LARGE MARKET TEAM.

How can you go against what the numbers have said for the past seven years? 83-79 (again...)

I think a better question is (and it may also be too soon to ask this) how many wins will it take next season to win the AL central, and what do the Sox need to do to get that many wins.

My guess: 92 wins. How to do it? Well, I don't think RJ or Beltran are realistic thoughts, but something along those lines for sure. Other than that, they'd need to buck every trend they've set in the last 4 seasons.
