San Diego should be a good fit for him.

Game 2 was the best game I've ever been to. Good luck gooch.

The Padres certainly like their ex-Sox lately: Blum, Mackowiak, & Iguchi.

Well according to some of the people here, if we still had Iguchi, we would have been able to sign Fukudome, so it is so odd they both didn't end up in San Diego together. Because you know if you share a nationality, you are destined to be bestest friends.

I hope he has a great career out there. He was great for us when we needed him the most.

That's pretty suprising.

Aw man, we shouldn't have let him go!

We could have had Fukudome!

He should hit a whole lot of doubles out there at Petco.

Good, lets send Uribe to the Rockies now.

The Sox really shouldn't ask for much in return. Maybe an extra pitching machine or maybe a few churro vendors.....

Uribe is worth a low-A prospect or a PTBNL with his poor play and 4.5 mil contract

And not to mention that the Rockies gave up on him because they thought he wasn't coachable supposedly and did things his own way with not-so-great results. What in the things he's done recently would make them think that wasn't still a problem for him?

It won't happen, I was only being half-serious. The Rockies will probably turn their attention to Eckstein now.

And David Wells, Jon Adkins too !!

Did anyone else hear Fred on the Score this morning talking about Iguchi? He said he has "Inside peeps" that told him nobody Inside the clubhouse right down to the towel boys liked Iguchi. Also that Iguchi became very Americanized and down right lazy.... Who knew?

Did this discussion take place on a cell phone at the airport?

Good for him. I don't know what went on in the club house, but I liked Gooch, and I definitely wish him the best in his career.

Good luck to him. His homer in the ALDS was my greatest moment in my live-viewing White Sox career.

Really.

If anybody should be interested in Uribe, it's the Nats.

With their lineup of d-bags, guys that haven't lived up to their potential, and paul lo duca, they could use a good ol' fashioned fat, lazy guy.

Good luck to Gooch, he gave us some good memories. I wish him the best in San Diego.
