I didn't realize santo=dorf was such an insider to everything about the Chicago White Sox.

Did Jerry have eggs or bacon for breakfast today? Enquiring minds want to know!!!

Eggs.

Reinsdorf isn't supposed to eat bacon.

Anderson was better. There's no argument. Stastically he hit better and they both played the field well.

Quit making excuses already.

INR, I brought the Grindout count back just for you.

Here's a visual of erstad's offensive ability at USCF:


The opposing second basemen are getting their money's worth with Darin.

I am not saying who was better or not. And I am not making excuses. I am simply saying you have no clue what happened at spring training. You need to understand that spring training is not at all about what happens in stupid-ass games that mean absolutely nothing. There is a LOT more to spring training.

The Count returns!



Erstad grounds out to second as much as Thome. Or Pierzynski. Same with Dye only to short. Or Crede to third.

Remind me again what the purpose of this count it?

I was in favor of Erstad being the 4th OF/back up 1st baseman (replace Gload.) I think Ozzie screwed up by never giving Anderson a chance and making Erstad an everyday player.

Because Ozzie completely mishandled the situation and Erstad's offensive numbers suck, it makes it a bad signing.

Not sure why that concept is so hard to grasp.
And Anderson is hitting .230 in Charlotte while battling injuries. We would still be a bad team if Anderson were here and not Erstad. I don't know why that is so hard to grasp.

Well, our bullpen might be the biggest concern, but I'm not sure why our weakness up the middle wouldn't land in KW's top three.

Don't you realize that if he were up with the big club he'd be hitting .320 and he'd have health to spare to give to JD,Thome, and Pods?

Who cares about comparing Anderson or Erstad? Whats the point of wasting your time.

Neither is the White Sox CF of the future.

Although it wouldn't make a difference on this year's squad, having a young guy battle through adversity during a down season is a HELL of a lot better than watching a banged up vet try to keep his OBP above .300.

I agree 100 percent. But people continue to rant and rave about Ozzie's decision to go with Erstad over Anderson at the start of the year.

As if it matters.

It's a shame our Joliet Jackhammers lost to their Kane County Cougars.

At the start of the year, the goal was to get to the World Series and win it. Not develop young talent.

It doesn't matter. We would still be fighting KC to stay out of the cellar. I know the problem I have with the decision of Erstad over Anderson has nothing to do with baseball and is personal. That makes me question what other **** is going on, that has nothing to do with baseball, that is affecting Ozzie's decision making.

Why do pitchers get sent to the minors for sucking, but yet HackOWack, Uribe, Cintron, ect. get a free pass? We bring up Buckvich? Prinz??? If you're going to do that then ****ing send down Uribe, Cintron, Mack, ect.

Uh, because we can't send them down? Not like these guys have options or anything... They all have their 5 years in in the bigs.... Have to DFA them and if someone grabs them what the hell better do we have in the minors?
