    This ought to be interesting with all of the Cubs fans around here:) I think this is a discussion I'll just sit back and watch while eating some popcorn...


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I'll start.....So far this year has been what I expected. They are playing well but still have a lot of room for improvement. Guys like Crede, Dye, and Pierzynski are having better offensive numbers than last year but their bullpen seem to be a little more suspect, especially Politte. I do like the addition of Thome even though he seems to be striking out a lot lately. They also seem to be having a lot more mental errors then last year. Not executing bunts, baserunning errors, not covering first etc...they just didn't do that stuff last year. Detroit seems to be for real (even though they currently are on a 4 game losing streak) because of good pitching. But the Chisox have the team to win the division or make the playoffs again and go far in the playoffs because of their superior starting pitching.

    Yea, smoke like that from the left side is hard to come by. I&#39;d much rather see him in there against a tough lefty late in the game than I would Cotts right now. How about Jenks&#39; "Uncle Charlie" pitch? After you see a couple of 98s wiz by you, that thing just isn&#39;t fair&#33;

    I think we are too used to the White Soxs not making any mental errors because of the unbelievable way they excuted last year. This year is what I expected from them so far.

    Pitching has been decent. I&#39;m disappointed in Garcia and Garland so far this year. Garcia&#39;s record doesn&#39;t indicate how poorly he&#39;s done in the couple games I saw him pitch. Maybe the WBC has something to do with it but I had a feeling from the end of last year that he wasn&#39;t going to have as strong as a season we are used to from him.
    Garland better start getting better quick but indications fromt he announcers is that he had a pretty good outing in Toronto although he gave up like 5 runs or something. I wouldn&#39;t be surprised if McCarthy challenges him for his starting spot soon.
    What&#39;s up with Buerhle leaving the ball up in that one inning he got rocked against the Indians? He seems to have one of those innings every outing now. He better start stepping it up not only cuz he&#39;s the Ace of the team but he&#39;s also on my fantasy team.

    The bullpen is the big ? of this season to my surprise. Pollite needs to re-focus or something cuz I see more of Nelson and less of Cliffy. Thornton is for real. Wow. We got a righty and lefty that can hit 100 is pretty damn amazing. It&#39;s time to use only McCarthy, Cotts, Thornton, and Jenks..maybe sprinkle a little of Nelson in there.

    Detroit is not for real. Maybe a couple years and then they could be the contending for the Central but I think we have a dynasty building in the south side of Chi-town.

    It was also apparently announced that Mack/Anderson will platoon. I think Anderson should start everyday, but that&#39;s just me.

    Anderson is batting .164....36 strikeouts in 110 AB..tought to play him everyday. If u watch his ABs..he doesn&#39;t look comfortable at all. Maybe platooning is what&#39;s best for him for now, hopefully he turns out like Crede like someone posted.

    I already think we&#39;ve lost at least two games (the Cubs one sticks out in my mind) because he wasn&#39;t out there.

    I think he&#39;s a better CF than Rowand, defensively.

    IMO, Uribe is the one who needs a boot in the butt.

    Hey where&#39;d u get the starting line-up at?

    Uribe needs to stop swinging at the first pitch and trying to hit it out of the universe.
