"When I heard the National Anthem it hit me," Jose Abreu said through White Sox spokesperson Lou Hernandez. "I love the Anthem. When I learn English Iím going to sing it."

Pat Arnold: Ya know...I don't think we're talkin' about a repeat, a 3-peat, or even a 4-peat.
Carl Walarski: That's right...we're talkin' a minimum 8-PEAT.

Default Sox close to signing lefty Scott Downs

According to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports:


Downs will be 38 years old next year but has a solid history as a relief arm in the Majors.

If he lacking in any skills, Quintana can fix him.

Uh, OK...

Anyways, it's a done deal, 1 year, $4 M guaranteed with a vesting option for a 2nd year.

Default Sox sign Scott Downs

Sox sign Scott Downs to a one year contract. From the press release:

The White Sox and left-handed reliever Scott Downs have agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Downs, 37, combined to go 4-4 with a 2.49 ERA (12 ER/43.1 IP), 37 strikeouts and 26 holds in 68 appearances last season between the Los Angeles Angels and Atlanta Braves. He tied for 10th in the major leagues in holds.

"Downs provides us with some balance to our bullpen and another veteran arm for Robin to call upon late in games," said Rick Hahn, White Sox senior vice president/general manager. "Scott's impact will not only be felt on the field, but given his makeup and leadership skills it will be felt in the clubhouse and bullpen as well."
