    Sox Sign Vizquel, Andruw Jones

    That '97 AL Central title is so ours.

    Only if Carlos Baerga gets signed will I believe in the '97 title.

    A lineup featuring Albert Belle, Andruw Jones, Frank Thomas, Omar Vizquel, and Chris Snopek definitely would have taken out the Jaret Wright and Bartolo Colon led Indians that year.

    Vizquel signing is good...solid backup at 3 IF positions...Jones...well...kind of a "why not" signing in my opinion. Can't hurt...

    Re: Sox Sign Vizquel, Andruw Jones

    Bench should be one of the oldest and most accomplished in baseball between Andruw Jones, Omar Vizquel, Mark Kotsay and the rumored Henry Blanco.

    And I guess 2001 AL Central would probably be more correct.

    Wise elected for free agency...so he is pretty much gone from the South Side!

    Big shout out though for DW's HUGE catch in Buerhle's "perfecto" though!!!

    Wise is a Phillie, I believe.

    I forgot about that, so we got Quentin, Pods, Jones, as the outfield this year. Kotsay DH and Konerko at 1st. I feel like I am missing someone since Teahan will probably play 2nd

    Alex Rios. Teahen will play third. The Baconator will play second.

    Harold Baines may consider a comeback.

    Re: Sox Sign Vizquel, Andruw Jones

    I don't get signing Jones. He hit .214 for Texas. Why would the Sox want him? You would think there must be better options out there. But as a Twins fan, I won't complain.

    He is supposed to be a strict bench signing.

    Re: Sox Sign Vizquel, Andruw Jones

    Wise is a Phillie, and there is no guarantee that Pods will be back. Once he figures out that no one will pay him big money, he may crawl back for cheap. I'm kind of hoping someone will give him his money and we can move on.

    If Thome is signed as DH, I could see Jones getting a few starts against lefties to maximize Thome's value and try to keep him healthy. Overall, it's a blah signing. Similar to Bartolo Colon. Low risk, potential high reward.

    Not a huge signing, but no denying he's better than Wise. Overall, team improved.

    As a Texas Rangers fan I was hoping to retain Omar next year. As for Andruw...no big loss there, but a serviceable outfield backup/ DH.
