    Ichiro or Roberts would be SICK. Doubt it'll happen though.

    I liked what I saw in Willy T's climbing OBP percentage coming into this year...

    2005 .325
    2006 .333
    2007 .367

    but them the sudden drop in 2008 to a career low .308 has me extremely skeptical despite his career high RIDICULOUS 68 stolen bases this year (I think this might be as much or more than the Sox had as a team all year).

    I think the most realistic acquisition here is CoCo Crisp, unfortunately. He is a free agent, wants to start, and Kenny Williams has a hard on for the guy.
    I love the guys play at center field, possibly the best on this speed list, but I'm not overly thrilled with his offense, it's not ******, but I want more of an impact bat.


    Finally, I'd LOVE to have Bobby Abreu. That guy has the best plate discipline and put up 100 Runs and 100 RBI this year, along with 20 HR and 20 SB. Gettin a little old, but he isn't your typical slow *** old guy.

    Why in the hell would you want Hall as a backup catcher for next season?

    In 2 seasons with the White Sox, Hall has hit .233 with a .264 OBP. He had 2 HR and 10 RBI in 243 AB. He also threw out just 12 runners while allowing 69 SB in those 2 years.

    We need someone that is a defensive catcher. Or even someone that can hit anything. Toby Hall for $2 mil a year is not worth it. It will only cost us $150 K to buy Toby out and we need to do it.

    Bobby Abreu doesn't have a place on this team. There is no room for him.

    ? is, who do we get.

    i know you pitched david ross but he was bad this year, even when he was in that reds hitting park.

    Javier Valentine possibly? or maybe let one of our young guys finally come up? 2mil actually does seem like a lot for hall....
    Son, you just don't get it, i'm talking bout TWTW!

    Yeah I don't like Ross anymore after I looked at his stats. Do we have any good defensive catchers in the minors. It is not like they can be worse than Toby Hall offensivley or defensivley.

    I've heard Adrian Beltre's name being tossed around a lot. I sure hope not though.

    you know while we are at it, we should trade JD for Gary Sheffield, and AJ Pierzynski and Paul Konerko for Jorge Posada.

    then sign Sammy Sosa and put Sheff at 1st!!!

    could you imagine that team...

    Dye to the Mets would be a pretty good fit. I have no idea what their system is like that.
