Hopefully it didn't begin with "Anyone who thinks we can catch Minnesota..."

I doin't even mind that since that's stuff within the control of the organization (i.e. who you draft & develop).

But 2 of the best offensive players in the game, right after makng a deal that should have solidifed our status as a WS frtonrunner.......that's just bad luck, which sucks.

Careful. You may start to sound like a Cubs fan. Even without Frank and Maggs, I still have faith that this team can make it. One of our biggest problems was relying on the long ball. Without two big power hitters, maybe we will be forced to play small ball and learn to win when the homerun is out, so that when Frank and Maggs return we are a highly tuned killing machine!

"Jeremy Reed will be a #2 or a #8/#9 type hitter. Borchard will produce in the middle of the lineup"

"We are going to have to get through the next month"

"THEY CAN'T PLAY HERE" - (re: Cubs playing in USCF)

"It's over my head - call the governor."

What the hell was question #4? Asking Kenny to stay someone's execution?

So far no official transactions have been listed on the mlb website. Why wouldn't there be a reference to Magglio being placed on the DL or Borchard being called up? I also wonder if KW is holding off on the press conference because he is trying to finalize a trade? How certain are we that Borchard is being called up?

And you accuse Joeynach of sounding like a Cubs fan?? Unfettered optimism in the face of bad news, now THAT'S Cubs-fan-like! I'm not convinced the Sox can't still win, but ... to suggest that losing their best two players is somehow going to transform the other guys on the team into small ball experts is nuts. You can't play small ball unless you have guys that get on base a lot, which the Sox don't really have. They just don't have the guys for it.

Nonetheless, with Lee, Konerko, Everett and Valentin, the Sox still have more power than the Twins or most other teams. I'm concerned that those guys might start to press, trying to do more than they're capable of, to try to replace the 2 big guns.

And all you Ross Gload and Jamie Burke fans out there (if there are any left) are going to get to see up close and personal on a regular basis why those guys are career minor leaguers. Ugh.

I believe he said Borchard is being called up - but that wouldn't stop him from being traded.

Kendall, Benson, Simon for something?
