This would be my first post so I thought I would introduce myself. I have been lurking on this site for a couple of weeks and saw your booth at SoxFest and finally decided to post. I live in Buffalo Grove. Incase you didn't know it is CUB COUNTRY so it is pretty tough dealing with those idiotic Cub fans.

I don't have a real favorite Sox. I like them all pretty much. If I had to chose one it would be Josh Paul I guess because he went to BGHS!

These boards seem very mature so I'm happy to be here and look forward to posting and maybe even one day become part of that almost family atmosphere you seem to have here.

Welcome to WSI :cool:

Good decision on finally posting! Josh Paul is somewhat unpopular around these parts but sometimes it seems like only a precious few aren't. Maybe Paul will show us something this year and everyone will have to eat crow. :smile:

Family atmosphere is good as long as it doesn't make you feel like you can't jump right in. Because you can. And you should. :gulp:

Welcome to WSI, Hawk. We're glad you're posting. We need all the Sox Fans we can get in Buffalo Grove. Keep up the good work!

I moved your thread to the main forum. The Parking Lot is for off-topic discussions. Here's the place to talk Sox baseball. Jump in on any subject you like.

Go Sox!

I can't say he is my favorite player based on how he plays. In that sence I like Aaron Rowand. I think he gives it his all (crashed into fences for one) and has a good attitude with Lofton and all. I like Josh Paul because he is the only baseball player I know who went to the high school 2 minutes away from me, although I did not go there. I know he is not the greatest but I wish him the best.

Based on some threads I have seen here I think I have some differing opinions on some things then you guys do. For instance I love Hawk and DJ and like Royce Clayton. Hopefully that won't cause toomuch trouble :smile: Like I said before I pretty much like everyone on the Sox. The only people I don't like I would say are Osuna and Liefer.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

Welcome to WSI Hawk. :gulp:

Josh Paul doesn't have a big following but hey, you could help to sway some peoples thinking. And at the end of last year he did start to look like he might finally be ready to produce in the big leagues but I guess we'll see this year if he makes it. He should have a good shot at making the big league roster as the second catcher because it appears that hes a KW fav whereas MJ is not.

Enjoy the site!

Welcome to the board! Don't let the family atmosphere thing get to you, the best thing to do is jump right in. I'm glad to see someone with some different opinions join in, I LOVE a good argument. Don't take it personally if I pick an argument with you, it is just in my nature.

Welcome to the boards Hawk.


The family thing is just an aberration, wait until the season starts and the yankee fan (BMR31) gets this place going, or the clayton/jose threads, or the fire JM thread, etc. We are all still sad about the trading of singleton, give us time to heal.

HawkDJk2k: Thanks for stopping by & welcome. I'm kinda new here too.

Mark Johnson is my favorite White Sox catcher, but I know Josh Paul is very nice too. Hopefully Sandy Alomar's knee's are in good shape this year because he should have a lot of power as big as he is.

Tony Graffanino is my favorite utility player of all time. I love to root for the guys that don't get no respect.
