Nope, way too early to declare any of this bust or no bust.

Greatest Arsenal goal I have ever witnessed. Chills to this day watching it.

Why on earth is Albert Belle on this list? He was here for two seasons, had one very good year, and then one of the greatest years in the history of the White Sox.

Hopefully Dunn will heat up with the weather. Dye didn't have a great start in '05 and then look what he did in the rest of '05 and '06.

Then why is he on the list?

Albert Belle's 1998 season is probably the best offensive season ever in franchise history.

The only two at that level are 1994 Frank Thomas or 1920 Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Since the churros were cold at a game I went to last year.

Why indeed. A lousy human being maybe, but hardly a bust with the White Sox. Imagine having a player on the current team tearing it up like Belle did in 98. Everything would be different.

What exactly would change?

PK's doing a decent impersonation so far this year and they're still stuck where they are.

OK fair enough. I probably should have been more specific and said someone else besides Konerko.

He does not have a track record vs. lefties.

Career batting average vs. lefties overall = .229, and a career average vs. lefty relievers in the .140s

2010 vs. Lefties: .199
2009 vs. Lefties: .268
2008: .195
2007: .239

Fixed the poll but I haven't stacked the answer (yet).

Ya. Because the difference in those numbers is obviously worth a 20 win swing at this point in the season.

How'd that 98 team turn out with that huge year?
