I'm not in Chicago, so I can't hear. I do have Sportcenter on, and they're still acting like it's a done deal...

It is official....Bruce Levin is reporting that the Angels nixed it because of potential backlash from fans.

That's hysterical. Can you imagine the Sox ever offering such an excuse?

No it the Angels got buyer, maybe a fellow owner in those meetings was the one who nixed the deal.

Don't worry about a mortage, refinance in 6 mos. when Greenspan has the rates so low that the bank pays you to own a home.

LOL! WSI has always been the rough equivalent to Oprah's TV show for Sox Fans. I'm impressed with the size of our studio audience today, too.

We need West to bring in some extra chairs for all the newbies.

that's weird.....

Ijust heard a radio report that said that the real reason behind this trade nix is due to the physical condition of one of the Sox players. that can't be true, can it?

It could be one of the minor league guys. I doubt Chris or Jon is hurt. Hell how would they know he is hurt? Nobody took a physical.

Maybe other GMs are just starting to assume that our pitchers are hurt.
