Check out the article about him at whitesox.com. "Rowand ready to dive into '05" I epsecially liked to part about the Bears victory parade.
Sorry, I suck at posting links.:(:

I don't need anymore reasons.

I hope we have 24 more guys like him. :smile:

I hope Aaron puts up good numbers this year and gives his all in the outfield like he usually does. With Carlos and Maggs gone, we will be looking to him to carry some of the load. And I think that he is more then capable of doing so.

Everyone is basically expecting him to put up the same numbers as last year. The sox have all ready lost two .300 hitters, losing Aarons '04 production would hurt.

I have thought about this too. Maybe last year was Aaron's career year and he has reached his peak. But the more I thought about it, ever since he has been up from AAA in 2003, he has hit over .300. I believe that in the second half of 2003, he hit .387. Last year he hit .310. I can't think of a reason why he will decline. He should be able to maintain the level of success he achieved last year and stay at that level for the rest of his career.

Good article. You gotta love Arow - great attitude and work ethic. He is becoming a leader on the team with his all-out effort on the field and his demeanor off the field. Sounds like he has a good relationship with Frank too.

Aaron seems good for the chemistry of the club and fits in well with Ozzie's style. Some of the Soxfest attendees said he's a great guy too. I hope we continue to see great things from him.

Amazing to me as a Sox fan, but probably not surprising, that most non-Sox baseball fans know very little about him. A few weeks ago, there was some trade speculation on another team's board involving Aaron and all the posters could say about him was that WSox fans loved him.

I guess that's what flyin' under the radar is all about (or another way of saying that the Sox don't get much national press)?

I can't stand when Cubs fans begin to speculate that Rowand is on steriods...they just have no explanation as to why he is infinetly better than Corey "168 K's for a leadoff man" Patterson...

Remember an old bit on Fox Sports Net where Rowand was tailgaiting at a Bears vs. Packers game, and he went into a porta-potty, but there was no TP, so somebody threw him a Packers cheesehead:smile:

Who was the 2nd .300 hitter the white sox lost this offseason? Carlos Lee hit .305 while the next highest that we lost was Magglio with a .292 avg

I believe Aaron can increase his offensive numbers if:
1. he uses all parts of the field
2. Stays away from the low and away curve ball.

Oh, please Hangar. We all know that payroll not only didn't go down since Lee and Magglio left, but in fact it went up. In an ideal world he'd spend 100 million, but realistically he's spending about what I would reasonably expect him to: 75 to 80 million dollars a year.

Here's a link to the 2004 MLB team payrolls...

Need one more reason?

He's already reported to spring training. He was being interviewed sometime yesterday. Saw it on Comcast last night.
