SENIOR CITIZEN SOX:
1st off LOL @ my title for this segment, but it is very true. Kenny Williams has brought a LOT of age on board with the additions of Omar Visquel & Andruw Jones. To tell you thee honest truth I don’t know what type of Cocaine Kenny was smoking with the Visquel signing, it makes NO sense cuz he is WAAYYYYY too old to make a impact on this ball club.
Now the Andruw Jone signing is interesting, I say this because yes he is a little older BUT I feel he can make a contribution to this team as a DH, not a HUGE difference but I think a big enough difference to help the team out. I cant lie that I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t pick up Hideki Matsui but I think we will be good enough at that position especially since the DH position is gonna be flopped between multiple players this season.
WHITE SOX REAL TALK APPROVED ACQUISITIONS:
Mr.Williams also brought in Juan Pierre& JJ Putz to the team, two moves that I LOVE. A lot of people were bitching and moaning about this Juan Pierre move but I don’t see why. Last year did he not only steal a lot of bases and hit for a .314 average but he CARRIED THE DODGERS WHILE MANNY WAS SUSPENDED!!! WHY WOULDNT YOU WANT HIM???? I mean granted Pods did do a great job last season but do you really think he was gon do that again???? cuz if he was believe me he wouldnt have went to KC lol Juan is consistent people, he will be a great addition to this ball club just watch. Now JJ will also be solid in my opinion and anytime you have the opportunity to get rid of Octavio Dotel, you should take it lol
BEST ROTATION IN AL????
Hey Detroit Im sorry for your loss……NOT LMAO!! That move added with the the loss of Polanco single handedly made the Detroit Tigers a non contender. The only competition is now the Twins, and I’m not really worried bout them ******** without a dome. But before I sign off I wanna address a little situation that might be brewing…..
AT A CROSSROAD:
Right now we are at a crossroad, down 5 games in the division, playing the worst we have played all season & the schedule getting shorter & shorter as the days pass. We can either say “Hey we can’t play much worse than this & just start having fun & play baseball” Not paying attention to the scoreboards cuz it really doesn’t matter what Detroit or Minnesota is doing cuz if we don’t win games we not going anywhere regardless. Ozzie agreed with me as you can see how frustrated he is with his postgame comments:
I’m embarrassed, and everybody in that room should be embarrassed,” Guillen said. “If they’re not embarrassed, they got the wrong job or they’re stealing money from baseball.
“I feel like I’m stealing money from Jerry, and that’s a shame. When you have more errors than hits, you better look yourself in the mirror and second-guess yourself. I’m second-guessing myself right now, making the wrong lineup every day. I watched Little League this morning … they were playing better than we did. At least it was more fun. This is not major-league baseball, sorry.” If they don’t feel the way I feel right now, they’re full of [expletive],” Guillen continued. “There’s no doubt in my mind we’re better than this. But you get to a point where it is what it is. And my hope is getting less and less. It’s a long mountain, and the mountain is getting higher and higher every night. And if we’re going to climb to the top, maybe they need a cable car to get up there. But they’re not going to walk up there.
“I’m not a loser or a negative guy, but I’m real realistic. That’s my problem in the past when I’m so realistic and people get mad at me and they don’t like the way I do stuff or the way I talk. Well, if you don’t want me to talk that way, [expletive] play better. I couldn’t have said it any better than our manager lol Now part of me wants to think that if we return home down 1-5 games in the division & Peavy coming back that we could win the division. But then the other part is telling me that this season is over, I can just look at the looks in these guys face’s & they just look like mentally they already on vacation. Jermaine Dye is batting .193 with 3 RBI SINCE ALL-STAR BREAK!!!, & Alex Rios is quickly becoming our version of Milton Bradley, too much money & no production. All that matters now is winning games, but if the ship is gonna sink, I’m gonna sink with it as a loyal fan. Until Next time yall PEACE!!!!!!!!!!
(I feel this lil guys pain lol)
Whats good world this is ya boy White Sox Real Talk checking back in wit ya, the sox season has only been over a couple months and boy has Mr.Kenny Williams already changed the look of the 2008 AL Central Divison Champs. In his attempt to bring more youth and speed to the southside, Mr.Williams’ first offseason move was of course not re-signing one Ken Griffey Jr.
This was a move that I saw coming from the begining of the offseason, I even said it was gon happen in my Season wrapup blog(If you haven’t already read it go check it out,It’s a great read LMAO) Mr.Williams(I CALL HIM THAT CUZ HE’S NICE LOL) then traded away a southside favorite Dirty 30 Nick Swisher to the Bronx
Even Though Nick batted a horrible .219 with 24 HRs and 69 RBI’s I was kinda dissapointed to see him go, because of his upbeat attitude and was always a site to see at sox home games. In return the Sox got back
Wilson Betemit(The Guy on top),Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez from the Bombers. And If you thought Kenny was done trading for a lil bit….YOU’RE DEAD WRONG LOL as Kenny traded Javier Vasquez to ATL in a 6-player deal(I GUESS KENNY READ MY SEASON WRAP-UP BLOG CUZ HE’S DOIN EVERYTHING I SAID TO DO LOL)
We got back prospects Catcher Tyler Flowers, Infielder Brent Lillibridge, 3B John Gilmore and Left handed pitcher Santos Rodriguez, Kenny says that all of these players have great talent even went as far as to say that John Gilmore is “the next Joe Crede” and calling Tyler Flowers “the next great all-star in the american league” I’m not gonna question him cuz he has a great eye for talent(Carlos Quentin,Alexei Ramirez).
Rumor has it that Kenny is also trying to shop former World Series MVP Jermaine Dye and our closer Bobby Jenks….
Now I hope these rumors are just rumors cuz i would HATE to see them go, now the Jermaine Dye trade would make more sense than trading Bobby Jenks because JD is 34 yrs. old and maybe on the downslide of his career real soon but trading Bobby Jenks MAKES ABSOULTELY NO SENSE PERIOD!!!! He has been nothing short of BRILLIANT sense making his Sox debut in ’05 he has had 3 straight seasons of at least 30 saves so that makes no sense. Kenny did say that he wouldn’t trade either player unless he could find equal value.
Rumor also has it that the Sox are interested in aquiring Marlins 3B Jorge Cantu who batted .277 with a career high 29 HRs and a team high 95 RBI’s last season
I HOPE THIS RUMOR IS TRUE….
Finally The Sox have filed Arbirarion for Orlando Cabrera and are waiting for a reply, well the winter meetings start next week and Kenny plans on going their listening instead of going their talking ****(like when he said the Tigers trade last year gave the Tigers a better chance to compete wit da Sox lol) I’ll be back wit new blogs if any big news comes out of the Winter Meetings so until next time I’m WHITE SOX REAL TALK…..PEACE!!!!
