very early he addressed the White Sox

They realized a lot of things went right for them to win. Went out and made changes. Thome was a great move. Also, the Javier Vazquez move was a good one as well since DB was also talking to the Indians about Vazquez

Signing Garland gives opportunity to trade him or Contreras when a team gets desperate for pitching. Kenny Williams proving to be one of the best GM's in the game.He understands the game is entirely based on pitching.

I thought the Master of the Obvious was none other than Captain Obvious himself, Tim McCarver.... :?:

THIS is a revelation????:?:

As recently as last offseason pundits were saying the White Sox would never be successful without Lee and Ordonez because "you need hitting to win in the American League."

It's not exactly a revelation, but it's certainly wasn't conventional knowledge in the steroid era.

Usually in a baseball game, the team that scores the most runs will win. :D:

I still love what Deion did to McCarver during the World Series...I can't stand that guy.
