I work at the Cell on the Club Level when the Sox are in town. My boss just called me and said there's a ton of media hanging around gate 4, including Corey McPherrin from Fox. Not getting my hopes up, but it sounds like an announcement will be made. Stay tuned, guys!

It could be anything. I don't think it's Burnett coming to the Southside, but maybe another closer or Aubrey Huff? Who knows! I'm just glad we're in the game.

You're right the Sox are out of town, and I work there only when they play at the Cell. BUT - the team's management, and Levy's management is there everyday. Game or no game. He could be lying or telling the truth. Take it for what it is.

I checked twice guys. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. Worse things have happened. But I did check Comcast Sports and the Cubs are playing. That telecast will not be interrupted for a press conference on the South Side. As for the radio, there's a possibility no one's ready to make an announcement untill they are ready for broadcast.
What my boss said was he saw 10 camera guys, setting up sound equipment at the Cell. If there's a press conference at the Cell it will not be about Frank Thomas' condition. A press release would be sufficient enough for that.

"Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down."

Not that I am a super huge poster or anything...but I have never seen so many people with less than 200 posts in one thread in my tenure here. This is a total padding of the stats.

Oh yeah about the Cat-lic prom, been there, done that, married it. Something about catholic women starting much too late.

C'mon people. I'm disappointed in everyone. WhiteSoxJosh is still the top poster for the past month. Someone's got to overtake him!!

To add to the fun... some guy on the ESPN Sox message board is saying that the Sox have traded PK and Contreras for Lowell and Burnett... then acquiring Overbay. Details within two hours.

Good times today, fellows!

Checking For Media

Tuesday, July 26, 2005, 4:35 pm

Fact Checking

After reading an email by a reader (who posted at about 4 pm), I went outside to check and see if, indeed, there were cameras and media people outside the ballpark. Other than getting blown sideways -- I swear the area at Gate 4 of the ballpark might be the windiest in Chicago -- I did not see a thing.

And usually (not always), I would know about this stuff in advance.

Corey McPherrin of FOX 32 was supposedly out here earlier taping another promo, and there is a driving school underway in the parking lot at Gate 5, but other than that, I did not see a thing.

Ken Williams was here earlier, and it looked like his car was gone from the lot, so I am not really sure about that earlier media sighting. Do call me if you hear anything because sometimes I am the last to hear.

Well! This has really been a remarkable read!

Everyone salivating over a possible press conference, then commenting on why they believe it's foolish to discuss possible press conferences, then tossing one-liners around the board like a hackysack.

It seemed like so much fun, I thought I'd chime in too! I hear that KW is set to announce the trade of Willie Harris, setting off a chain of events that results in the sale of the White Sox to Donald Trump. "I'm building the biggest building in Chicago," said Trump, "why can't I build the biggest baseball team too?"
