Manny Being Useless

Claiming Manny Ramirez off waivers was a desperate move by White Sox GM Kenny Williams, and it was also a move worth making. The White Sox desperately needed a boost, something, anything that would put them back into the race with the Twins. Manny and his $4 million price tag were that boost, sadly, it just hasn't worked out. The seven game win streak following the claim of Manny, and the 7-3 road trip, som ...

Manny Already Helping Sox

In the 9th inning of tonight's game, Manny Ramirez stepped into the on-deck circle ripe and ready to make his White Sox debut. But A.J. Pierzysnki had different plans. In a 1-1 game, with 2 on and 1 out, A.J. went yard giving the Sox a 4-1 lead which would eventually hold up at 4-3. Sure Manny didn't do much but stand on deck, but his presence was certainly felt. I don't want to read into it too much, but e ...

Kenny Williams Hypocritical Message

When it comes to steroids in baseball, we are all hypocrites. No matter how tough a stance people take on the performance enhancing drugs, we all have a guy or two we are willing to forgive. I'm as guilty as anyone, I eagerly anticipate Sammy Sosa getting his Cubs' number retired, yet make fun of Mark McGwire any chance I get. Many baseball fans get angry at a players on other teams for using PEDS, then hav ...

The Pros and Cons of Manny Ramirez

It's official, Manny Ramirez is a member of the Chicago White Sox. The Dodgers decided to just let him go, and the White Sox will assume the $3.8 million remaining on his contract. It's a low-risk, high-reward move that only costs the White Sox money, which makes it hard to be upset with the acquisition. Having said that, there are some concerns with adding Manny to any team, especially one that will count ...

Stop Losing to the Orioles!

While the Twins are in the middle of being 4-game swept by the Rangers, the Sox are falling to the Orioles, at home. Yesterday night, the White Sox won a big game cutting the division lead to 3.5 games.  Today they had a golden opportunity to make that lead 2.5.  But instead, in a matchup between perennial star Mark Buehrle, and struggling youngster Brian Matusz, the Sox fall 4-2. In one inning Konerko, Que ...

Manny Would Be Nice, But Bullpen Help is More of a Need

All this talk of the Sox claiming Manny Ramirez, in the event he is placed on waivers, has drawn a lot of buzz to the South Side.  And while I agree with earlier posts, as well as comments from Kenny Williams and the media, that Manny would be a great addition, there's a better guy out there for the current state of the Sox. The first name that comes to mind is Brian Fuentes, but he was pulled back earlier ...

The White Sox Should Claim Manny Ramirez

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the White Sox have reached the point of desperation. With six weeks left in the season the White Sox sit 4.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins. They have been in free fall recently, one month ago, July 24th, the White Sox were up 2 games on the Twins. A 15-15 record since made room for the Twins to go on a run, and they certainly did, going 22-8 over the same ...
