I am going to try something new, and periodically post a collection of viewpoints from other fans & people “in the know” on topics that are new (or interesting) for our White Sox …let this serve as information that I agree with (all or part) and at times wish I had thought of, or didn’t make or take the time to write…or things that I am now smarter for knowing…v1.0

What people that post responding to these transactions need to understand is that there is a methodical, meticulous plan taking place here and it is a tribute to Kenny Williams’s direction. Mark Kotsay, Omar Vizquel, Andruw Jones and now Juan Pierre. All these players have good reputations as hard workers, team guys and guys that have played winning defense. Three of four of them have one year deals, with Pierre’s being the only two year deal. Jordan Danks. C.J. Retherford. Brent Morel. Dayan Viciedo. John Shelby Jr. Tyler Flowers. These are all talented players in a restocked and revitalized White Sox farm system and these players will be ready in less than two years to compete at the Major League level. Williams is doing the hardest job well. Contending for today and rebuilding for tomorrow. Bravo Kenny.
This was a class act by Ned Colleti. Juan Pierre isn’t going to put up 30 homers or 100 rbi’s….but he will bring a good attitude and grit to the White Sox. He’s a good guy for the game of baseball and its nice to see that Ned Colletti was willing to help Juan’s career. After all that Pierre went through in LA, I never once heard him complain about anything…he’s an absolute team player and its good to see those kind of guys in the game. I wish there were more like him
A ML starting caliber OFer for two minor league pitchers? Did I read that right?
in the event JP reads this article/comments – – THANK YOU! Thank you for putting the name on the front of your jersey as priority over the name on the back of your jersey. Selfishly, I would’ve liked it if you remained a Dodger; .300 hitter, 40+ SB, high on-base %, defense, consummate team player. I hope you get to start every game & that you smoke the leather off the ball. Some may say that as you age, your talent level may wane; that may or may not be true. Watching you play in L.A. through the Andruw Jones/Manny Ramirez/Xavier Paul OF, I can say that one aspect of your persona that will not wane – your character. Best of luck JP.
I love to get feedback from fans outside of our fandom, especially when it involves getting a player in trade or from the last place he played…nobody knows that player as well as the fans who followed and watched with their own eyes…
And finally, my favorite (so far)…
i hope this shows fans that the sox are serious about winning and hopefully people will support the team.
Your G-Damned Right, Brother!
