How do Sox fans feel about the resigning of Lowell? Just curious. I am sure at the time, most applauded it, but wondering if that has changed?

Hasn't changed for me at all. He wasn't that expensive, he's putting up decent numbers after his injury earlier in the year, and above all, he's a great teammate and leader.

Delcarmen has looked good the last few times out, so hopefully that's a good sign.

With all of the injuries, you really can't ask for a better record right now. It pays to have depth on a team and a farm system stocked with pitching.
hank steinbrenner does not share the red sox love of interleague

Well Bartolo Colon got hurt swinging the bat, where's the outrage from Sox camp? Hank is a boob.

I still like the Lowell signing, there really wasn't a ton of other good options out there for them and Lowell is a solid run producer. Even the Lugo thing...he's certainly getting a bit too much $$$ but the guy has gotten on base in May and June with an OBP around .390. That's just fine out of a SS and 9th place hitter for me. The defense is a concern though.

That pretty well sums up what my answer would have been.
I mean he's hitting .275 with 11 HR's and 37 RBI...its not like he's stinking the joint out or anything.

They'd have to eat most of Lugo's contract for anyone to consider trading for him (its what's known around MLB as "pulling a Renteria"), I just don't see anyone biting even if they do that.

Again, was just curious...noticed his OBP was pretty low so that sparked my interest.

Oh, and the Yankees love interleague play, regardless of Hank.

Shiver me timbers!!!! The White Sox have banished the Pittsburgh Pirates to Davey Jones Locker with a 3-game sweep in which we scored a triumphant 37 runs!!!

Next stop:

Wrigley Field...

BRING IT.

Ug, I dread this weekend. I can't believe ESPN made the next 2 sunday night games Sock/Cub games. Things could get ugly.

I wish the Sock weren't such streaky hitters. They unloaded on the Pirates; I hope this doesn't mean they're due for another dry spell.

Anyway, Go Sock!



PS--> can you believe the pitching staff?

If our pitching and our bats click at the same time...and that's obviously a big if...we are the most dangerous team in baseball.

It's not arrogance, it's honesty.

It seems that everyone in this thread needs a reminder that there is another Sox team in MLB. When ever the "Sox" are discussed here it's automatically assumed it's the Red Sock. Don't get me wrong, I'm not drinking the kool aid or anything but


*shakes an angry fist at the east coast bias!*

yeah, I'll go back to the cat thread now.

So now the Mariners' manager is out.

I am shocked. Shocked, I say!
