So there are options out there.

I think that Granderson, Choo and Ellsbury should be the Sox' top choices because they need a center fielder. And Granderson is from the south suburbs. Maybe Granderson comes here and Choo goes to the Bronx.
I like Choo, but can he play CF? I thought defensively he was more of a corner OF.

He cannot. He'd be a fine LF option for us, however, and could shift to RF when Rios departs.

This White Sox team has no life or personality. I'm old enough to remember many bad teams, including the woeful 1970 team that lost 106 games. That team at least fought hard every game and gave all they had to be competitive. Remember the fun they had with the "Big White Machine" after every win?
This team is a pain to watch.

Gotta agree Danny.. and its not just a rosey glasses nostalgic old fart saying this. Sure those teams lost at a horrible rate, but they actually seemed to give a **** and hustle game in and game out..

I look at this years team and there is no fire. Ok I get the business type yammer, yet that really only works if you go about your business and win, which is the business you are in.. This team is almost operating in zombie mode..

That's really the key. It wasn't just losing; it's the lack of effort. No serious attempt to fight back. No rally, no one stepping up and making a play or two to get them back into it. You'd have to think that if a certain guy was still a member of the Sox instead of being in Texas, we might have seen something, ANYTHING, to get this team going...

Hard to convince fans to put their hearts and souls into the team when the players and coaches don't seem to be willing to do it...

Ok team, prove me wrong for using teal.
