If your a catcher hitting .200, you better be an awesome catcher. Not the case with Flowers, not even close.

Joey Cora will be next.

Cerrano: Dunn
Uecker: Hawk

Don't mock... I have to laugh to keep my sanity about this.
Harris: John Danks (until he gets his fastball speed back, he's gonna need the Crisco, Bardol, Vagisil, and snot)

BTW, I posted a De Aza as Hayes pic in the game thread last night.

Ditto. Probably the first game this season, except when I was on a flight or overseas, that I never even checked the score of during the game.

That's OK - when we let him go or he walks away, the Sox have plenty of former Sox players with zero coaching experience at any level ever from which to choose. I nominate John Cangelosi.

Buddy Bell. He's used to managing awful teams.

I'm sure there would be a lot of guys willing to work on the cheap for a shot to manage a big league team. As to whether they are any good or not, that would remain to be seen.

Apathy:

absense or suppresion of passion, emotion, or excitement!

Lack of interest in or concern for things that others find moving or exciting.

This Ladies and Gentlemen, is your 2013 Chicago White Sox..!!

The Sox' reliance on HRs is pitiful.

Amazing how exposed Tyler has become now that he is catching more than once a week. His pure fundamentals of catching the ball seem flawed. As Stoney pointed out, he should not be trying to backhand a ball in the dirt right in front of him.

Bring on Phlegley....or whoever.
I prefer Jiminez to Flowers right now.

Again,this shows the inexact nature of ''trading the vets for young prospects'' .....Flowers and Lillibridge were our big pieces for Javy,right?

And AJ was over the hill,so we go with the young prospect?

The Braves seem to know which guys to keep,and which ones to deal..
