I'm surprised people don't ask for social security numbers for verification of scoops. People here have higher standards than most newspapers.

Just ignore them. Who cares what people think? Just post what you know. As long as you're not making stuff up (and based on what I've read you're not) then you are doing the board a service.

I know what its like guys, I am actually a big fan of the Orioles (as hard as it may be) and they have a board orioleshangout.com that I frequent all the time. I always like the 'insider' info they pass along and I have a connection in the clubhouse there as well but I don't in the FO. Anyway, I don't get worked up when people tend to challenge you on things. Heck, I understand, I just joined today to pass this along. I do expect some good info going forward from the FO in Chicago however.

I think if he does sign he will need more than a year and this final couple of weeks left in the minors. I expect him to be on this team for sure in 2011 with a possible 2010 september call up

The good thing about drafting a college position player this high is that you expect him to be ready and performing in short order. 2010 or 2011 at the latest. Looking forward to confirmation on this signing.

All I know is Mark Gonzalez's White Sox blog, posted last night, said Beckham was still unsigned. I hope we hear something today.

Any additional updates/details are absolutely appreciated. Keep up the good work, friend! Tell your friend in the FO to give you the juicy money figures involved

Rock, I appreciate your posts as much as anyone else here at WSI, but you need to stop these posts feeling sorry for yourself - you're not doing yourself any favors. Keep in mind that the majority of people appreciate you sharing the info you get, and don't worry about being so defensive about the naysayers. No one is going to build you a monument on a message board, I'm sure you realize that. When more of your posts are of the defensive, "you guys are just jealous" type than they are about actually sharing knowledge or opinions, that's when the tide around here will really turn against you, trust me...

SS Gordon Beckham, Chicago White Sox
Talks between the two sides are ongoing, and no one has indicated that Beckham won't sign. It's a bit of a gamble on Beckham's part, but it appears he's waiting as long as possible and learning what the market will bear before grabbing what he can from the Sox.

Well I like hearing that in comparison to Yonder Alonso who said returning to Miami is "50/50."
