Last February, another WSI Mod and I had lunch together. He and I readily agreed that there were too many pessimists at WSI about the upcoming 2012 season and that the Sox were definite contenders for the division. So, yes, there was excitement last February about the White Sox.
I won't reveal his name to protect him from slings and arrows.
All I have to say is that there better be a Lou Gehrig or Frank Thomas quality kid available for the 2014 draft......
