Let's go get Paulie! I said it a month ago - and I'll say it again. I like the thought of getting both!

And congrats to KW for his first ever high-profile, new member to the team FA signing!
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the Sox biggest FA signing since Belle, no?

For all the people who whined how the Sox never sign top free agents, threw out that the Sox had gone "on the cheap" since signing Albert Belle, and how no free agents want to come here, you can run and tell that, homeboys.

Dunn is obviously a great power hitter. However, $14 mil a year is a lot of money. Now Konerko might come back, probably at $14 mil also. With our rotation, that is going to be something like $80 mil invested in 7 players, Quentin presumably is going to be moved, we will get a new RF and we still have no bullpen outside of Thornton. I don't know how they are going to make it work financially unless they substantially raise payroll. Good luck, Kenny. You've got a lot of work ahead of you.

Well, sure. But does anyone think that scenario is likely? I don't.

So now what - Viciedo hits the trading block for a C? Maybe he goes with an SP?

Hey, it only took a whole year for this team to figure out again that DH is a position in the AL!

A bunch of baseball writers, Chicago and national, seem to think it's possible.
