I liked it. I agree with pretty much everything he wrote.

I don't know if I was colicky as a baby though, as I was pretty young then. :D:

I saw that too and for the most part I liked it. There were a few things he included that bothered me though. First off the fact that there have been massive outbreaks of grumpiness among Sox fans. He'd be right about that before the Swisher trade and Dotel signing but I think right now a lot us are cautiously optimistic.

Also the bit about signing Uribe being a mistake. IMO, it would've been a lot harder getting a SS like Cabrera if you had absolutely NO backup plan.

Other than that it was a nice change of pace from the usual doom and gloom from the Trib.

Trust me, there are people who are not going to be able to see that was a joke.

I think many have made a bigger deal of this than it needs to be. It's only one year, and they may in fact need him. Not to mention, one injury and the Sox are in position to deal from an area of strength. There will eventually be a market for Uribe.

It was a decent article, but I found it funny he considers the tribe to be in a different league and doesn't even mention the Tigers.

I read it. Amazing a positive article. It has to happen evry once in a while. Now Rick will be attacked by his peers.

I liked the column. At this point I think Morrissey is a much more credible baseball writer than Phil Rogers, who seems to have lost his mind in the past few years.

Meh, I don't mind him categorizing us as grumpy. I think a lot of Sox fans are grumpy and cynical, including me.

I did like the column. It goes contrary to the prevailing wind, which is a welcome change.

Solid article, backed by strong reasoning. In time, and even when the games (the ones that count) start, people will feel much better about the 2008 White Sox.

:cool:
