Why the White Sux (not a mistake) won't win next year.

The Sox got lucky last year. Now they got rid of Rowand to get a washed up player. Then, they get that pitcher,giving up a top prospect and a lot more for him. They screwed themselves out of the chance of winning next year.

Sounds to me like you are alittle envious of the World Champion White Sox. While Aaron Rowand was a contributor to the Sox world series victory, his offensive numbers were mediocre. You may say that Thome is "washed up" but he is reported healthy. Although he missed time last year, he will hit 35-45 HR if he stays healthy in 2006.........more than Carl Everett would have hit. Brian Anderson is a young prospect who should put up as good if not better numbers than Rowand did in 05. Vasquez is a power arm who gives you 200 innings and 200 K's every year and is a potential 20 game winner. He would currently sit as the #3 starter on the cubs. Vazquez strengthens the best, deepest rotation in baseball with 6 quality starters.

If you want to talk about "washed up" please look up the profiles of Sammy Sosa, Corey Patterson, Greg Maddux, Kerry Wood or Nomar Garciaparra.

The cubs finished 4th last year behind the Brewers, Astros, and Cardinals. They have done nothing to improve themselves except finally a legit center fielder (that they paid dearly for) and 2 White Sox mid-90's castoffs in the bullpen. THAT AIN'T GONNA CUT IT.

1. Thanks for pointing out that "white sux" was not a mistake. I'm sure there were alot of confused White Sox fans until you cleared that up...

2. Every champion needs its share of luck. But since this originated from a Cubs fan, i guess that might be news to you...

3. Rowand is just a so-so big leaguer. No real loss there. And as for Thome being washed up...well...obviously that's ridiculous.

4. Vasquez is a fine bottom of the order guy...how have the Cubs bottom of the order guys been this year. For that matter, have the Cubs had any pitcher better than Vasquez, aside from Zambrano? Hendry should have been the one going for a guy like Vasquez, but he was too caught up with Prior and Wood...again...

5. Yeah, those moves really screwed them this year. They're way out of contention...i mean, the last time i checked, they were like 20 odd games below .500...at least, one of the teams in Chicago is.

Next year, Cubs fan, next year. ;-D [/b][/i]
