    Last year only 2nd year as closer. Apparently struck out 95% of batters faced.
    Heard that last year sox bullpen struck out 18%. League average is 22%

    Right ..so again, How often in history have the Sox outbid the Yankees?? Is there something wrong with Robertson that he, the yankees and their orthopedist (or psychiatrists) know? I hope the sox do the appropriate due diligence in this signing...

    My guess is that his arm is being held onto his body with dental floss.

    LOL ROTFLMAO. Sox sign him and he chooses them over the Yankees. MUST have something wrong with him. Sox fans are just sooooo hard to please. When they make a move that most wanted them to make, like getting a closer there is something wrong with him. Has to be, the Sox signed him. 


    Then they are going after a good starter. Well this is also wrong. Why ? I guess because we have the immortal John Danks. But not really. See the guy they are going after (According to tweets beeps and bloops on the internet.) has the problem of once having pitched for Chicago's National League Baseball team. So he has this allegedly, gay, drunk loser genes. Now if you were buying a car, let's say a Chevy would you not buy the car when you are told that the transmission was based on a design from an engineer that worked for another car company? I doubt you'd care. But because he once worked in the ballpark in Lakeview, well he's a problem. Tough crowd !


    Don't you just hate it when the Sox are seemingly* doing the right things! It just screws up the bitching! 




    * seemingly |ˈsēmiNGlē| 
    adverb
    so as to give the impression of having a certain quality; apparently: a seemingly competent and well-organized person.• [ sentence adverb ] according to the facts as one knows them; as far as one knows: it's touch and go, seemingly, and she's asking for you.

    Battered White Sox Fan Syndrome! Look at the last "big" free agent signing. How quickly did Adam Dunn sign with the Sox? How quickly did Robinson? I think we have the right to be skeptical.

    Yankees have what they consider a stud young closer-and probably didn't want to giver long term deal

    I have moved on from Oaf Dunn and Navarro.


    I also like Rick Hahn.


    Rick Hahn has earned my trust until he does Kenny Williams style nonsense.
