So after the conclusion of the WGN telecast of our exciting comeback win, I flip over to ESPN to catch SportsCenter...low and behold they have that stupid blowhard analyst Steve Phillips on, and hes saying that he doesn't think the Sox have enough offense to win the division, and the Twins will eventually catch them. In the next breath, he's asked who will win the AL wildcard and he said it would come down to the Twins and Rangers, and he would take the Twins to win it! Make up your mind, genius! The Twins can't win the wildcard AND the division. :rolleyes:

LOL! what an idiot. Some of those "analysts" on the Yankees-Red Sox network are pathetic.

He "probably thinks the "struggling" Indians will take the division, or the "new-look" Tigers.

Wow. The first part really didn't surprise me. But saying that the Twins would win both the division and the wildcard, that is just sad.

there's a reason the mets sucked when he was their GM. and that one world series they reached was BS. a fluke season full of lucky crap left and right. good job signing mo vaughn, robbie alomar, and company you dooshbag. espn does a lot of things wrong and one of them is signing every former baseball player, manager, or gm they can get their hands on.

Phillips was asked who he felt would win the division IF it came down to the Twins and the Rangers. He first said that he thinks both of those teams will press for the division and not the Wild Card. However, the question was IF it came down to them. ESPN has its share of dopes, and Phillips may well be one of them. This, however, was not his fault.

Until the Twins have been defeated by the Sox they still will have (with good reason) their supporters.

That being said who cares what the media thinks, if the Sox take care of
business it won't matter.

I happened to be in the car when Silvy and Carmen were on this morning, and Phillips said the same thing on their show. When he was finished, DeFalco said that when the season was over, they'd invite him to be in a dunk tank at The Cell.

The only thing the Sox can do to shut clowns like Phillips up is win.

A lot of these national announcers don't do their homework and are simply blowhards. If you actually don't know anything to say, the easiest thing is to prognosticate, and the easiest prognostication is to go with the team who won last year. I doubt if Phillips has put much thought, let alone research, into his analysis. His guess is as good, and as poor, as anyone elses.

Its pretty obvious that the Twins are going to stick with the SOx all season. Maybe someday they'll even catch us for like a week, just to drop back to 2nd a week later. We've already beaten those losers this year, and we have better pitching. I can accept this.

I watched the ESPN broadcast, and during a SOX game, they were all at a concensus that the Twins were going to win the division, and "like the Braves, the AL Central goes through the Twins". *****, not while I'm watching my team, leave that crap to the Minnesota telecasts. They let brentley or whoever the guy is do the Sox broadcast again, he did it last year. All he does is bash the Sox every chance he gets, like a secret vendetta. I remember last season, he made a point to talk about the Cubs all throughout the Sox telecast, and how horrible our stadium is because its not called Commiskey. I hate that moron.

Nothing dry about the Arlington-Dallas-Fort Worth area in July and August...you don't get good dry heat until you head out west to Midland/Odessa and El Paso.

he called him chad during the game and there was like a 30 second silence. I think stoney and the other guy were trying to decide whether to correct "JB" and maybe even JB himself was trying to decide whether to admit he was wrong.

Chad? I don't even know where that comes from.

Maybe he spent a lot of time in florida in 2000

Chad Hermanson gave up baseball two years ago because he couldn't throw strikes, right? He went back to play in the NFL because every time the Cardinals called him up he walked a million guys, and then he went down to AAA and walked a million more.

EDIT, my bad, I just realized that was Hutchinson. my bad. Chad Hermanson was an outfielder with someone . .. the Pirates maybe?

I was listening to The Expert on Mike and Mike this morning. What he said this morning was that he felt that two teams were winning despite their poor team batting averages, poor number of runs scored and poor success in driving in runners from scoring positions. The two teams: the Atlanta Braves and the Chicago White Sox.

As far as the Sox are concerned, it sounds like he is talking on the macro level while we are talking on the micro level.

We complain about Crede, Dye, Konerko, Timo, and Everett, amoung others. Phillips is taking the cumulative of those guys and saying that 1) they probably won't improve therefore 2) their position is probably gonna slip. He admitted that we had sufficient pitching to go the distance.

I don't necessarily agree with him, but the truth is, we've just been treading water for the past two weeks. Heat up those bats a little and we'll be back on a run.

Yes, the Sox still have to prove themselves and win this division, but after countless threads about ESPN "analysts" it amazes me how clueless people like Jeff Brantley and Phillips are. It seems all they get paid to do is make comments putting down teams they don't like and tell who they do like. They are supposed to point out legitimate pros and cons to every team and make a fair assesment. Blanket statements like, "I don't think the Sox pitching or hitting will hold up," are ridiculous statements because anybody can say that. They could pay some homeless guy to come in off the street a lot less money to give commentary on who will win because that's his favorite team.

I'll bet he can't name more than 5 current White Sox players. What rational person would expect Konerko, Dye, Everett, Crede and Uribe to ALL continue to hit below .250?

ESPN hates us. How many times did the ESPN booth rip Ozzie's pitching moves and say we aren't going to go anywhere with Ozzie on the bench. When listening to Sutcliffe, I believe, I wanted to take a gun to the television set.

I heard the same schtick from Phillips as well. He also said that the Sox pitching staff 1-12 can compete with anyone; HOWEVER, Phillips also said that the staff was not the best on the front end, NOR the back end. Now if I understand Phillips-speak, he says that our 1-2 (and maybe 3) starters are not that good, AND our closer (who hasn't allowed an earned run all year) is not the best. That may be so.......but it sure as crap is working now! His big thing about the Twinks is the great Johan Santana. Phillips said that with Johan on the mound, he'd put his money on the Twinks.

I would welcome a thread on a Buehrle v. Santana debate, but MB's consistency vs. JS's strikeout potential may just be a style over substance discussion. Don't get me wrong, JS is an outstanding talent; he proved it last year and the beginning of this season. The point is that MB may be the most underrated 'ace' in baseball.

I've always thought Buehrle is better as far as long term results. It was just too hard to argue it with Johan winning every game he started in the second half of last season. Johan is great, I just think Mark is a smarter pitcher, that has more a better body for long term results. That might be a biased notion, but I still think heads up Buehrle will have a better career, and similar best years as Johan.
