    According to COACH, the White Sox never have any weaknesses.

    What I like is Hahn saying the guy has a line drive stroke.
    I guess wind currents and trying to jack everything out of the park has lost some importance?
    And to think we have FANBOYS who thought RAH RAH Kenny Williams should just have the GM job forever because he talked bullshit that was music to their ears and fed their delusions.

    And with the pickup of a .269 minor league hitter and <.150 in the majors, they still don't.

    If only Rah Rah Kenny could have figured out a way to win more than 2 Divisional Championships in 12 years people might still have a fondness for the White Sox and actually attend games.

    Sounds to me that John is going to stop wasting time chatting with Gordon Beckham and chase his mother.
    Makes more sense than admiring the brilliant play of Tank Viciedo at 3B.

    Kenny Williams wasn't alowed to fire Jerry Manuel or Ozzie Guillen. Kenny Williams didn't break Quentin's hnd in 2008. And for all we know, it could have beens Reinsdorf himself that decided Danks was better than Buehrle.

    WIN NOW works when its not being sabotaged. And the near misses every other yar does make for fun summers. The falls ain't that much fun, but that is what the bears are 4

    What you call near misses some might call failure. How many NEAR MISSES did anybody feel good about or have any confidence that the organization had a clue going forward?
    I'm sure a few may have been inspired by the 2012 Choke, but keep them away from sharp objects.

    I guess Williams won the World Series so that gave him magical powers in the world the lunatic fringe. Ignore all of his stupid moves and the $700,000,000 pissed away since 2005.

    Larry Himes wins nothing. In fact, he only had one winning season the 4 years he was here. Then he moves across town, trades for sosa again and continues to win nothing

    BTW, Kenny Williams had Miguel Cabera in a White Sox uniform, but Reinsdorf vetoed the deal because the Marlins insisted the Sox take Dontel Willis as well. So as far as the KARK is concerned, the Sox won the AL Central every year starting in 2008 if not for people sabotaging Williams effort

    One Dog came from the Cardinals, but I don't remember what the Sox gave up for him.

    How can you forget the sabotage ROBIN VENTURA did to Williams this September?

    Maybe Cooper is a back-stabbing double agent??

    I stand corrected. We will just move Johnson from a good Himes draft choice to a good Himes trade.

    I'm sure this is why Kenny kicked himself upstairs. For years he assembled teams with NO WEAKNESSES and the last straw had to be Ventura aligning with the saboteurs.
