BACK LIKE I LEFT SOMETHING!

What is good world! its ya boy White Sox Real Talk checking in for the 1st time in a few months, didn’t want to post anything the last few months until the dust settled from all the moves the Sox were making. It is now the end of January and Spring Training is right around the corner and the smoke in the air is becoming much more clear. Kenny has made a lot of moves in the offseason as far as bringing Teahen, re-signing Carlos Quentin, Bobby Jenks & Freddy Garcia but Mr.Williams has also gotten rid of Sox favorite Scotty Pods and also made some questionable moves. So let me get started on what I think of the new additions to White Sox Nation

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????

Am I the only one excited as hell for the debut of the “Fantastic Four” which is Peavy,Buerhle, Floyd & Danks(who just signed today and hopefully that extension is coming) According to sportingnews.com the Sox have the 5th best rotation in not the AL but the MAJORS! that makes me VERY excited. Now add that with a solid 5th starter in Freddy Garcia and a solid bullpen I think the Sox are on the way to another division title in 2010 especially with this happening:

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…..

So sources are saying that Jermaine Dye might be going to(drum roll please)…….THE CUBS! Let me just start off saying that JD is my favorite player and also one of the main reasons why we won in ’05 BUT with all that being said if he does sign with the Cubs…..HE IS DEAD TO ME! PERIOD! YOU DONT SIGN WITH THE ENEMY!…….That is all, so until next time……PEACE!!!

NOW OR NEVER…..SOX REACH A CROSSROAD IN THEIR SEASON

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in for the 1st time in two weeks, I have been doing Sox blogs for chicitysports.com but I decided to start posting back here too, didn’t want to disappoint my fellow MLBloggers, so lets get to it. Well what can I say about this team lol MANNNN they are just horrible. Thats really the best word I can think of right now to describe them, they are currently 1-5 on this brutal 11 game roadie. What has really been the problem not only in this trip but the season period is bad defense, a 3-man rotation, & bad,bad,bad offense. There is no excuse for a lineup that includes power hitters such as Jermaine Dye, Paul Konerko, Jim Thome, Alex Rios & Carlos Quentin to be struggling to score runs. Defensively i think this has been the worst team I have seen in all my years of being a Sox fan. They had more errors than hits today, UNACCEPTABLE. I’m not even gonna do a a recap about the game cuz I don’t wanna have a heart attack, I’m only 20 dammit lol but here is my solution
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!!!!!!!!!!
