    The 2013 season for the White Sox was a disappointment. Hopefully 2014 will be better.
    So far the White Sox have surprised me by signing Jose Abreu. Didn't think the Sox had it in them right now to pull the trigger and sign a player to a big deal. Really hoping he makes an immediate impact.

    Not a Sox fan, but a baseball fan.

    Abreau could be a huge signing. Scouts say he has massive power, just need to see if his swing can translate to the majors. But he is a huge signing. Likely replaces Konerko.

    Hate to see Paulie go. I enjoy watching him play.

    My choice would be Indy.

    You think? Not so sure Indy is much of a baseball state.

    It would have to move to a state that is close, so not to lose the hard core fans that actually care about them inside the city. Which, considering their current location, Indy might be their best choice. I would say Iowa (field of Dreams, Iowa Cubs) they would be ripe for a major league team. But that would be a bit of a hike for the die hard Sox fans.

    Des Moines has the Cubs triple A minor league team so that would have them again competing against the cubs.

    I know. But here is my logic.

    They compete against the Cubs here. Doesn't help them much.

    At least there it would give them a major league option

    Cubs are ingrained in people it's amazing I would try find somewhere where no significant allegiance has been solidly built. But at this point I would essentially take anywhere but Chicago.

    Lol. The Nevada Cubs?

    I would really hate to see Pauly go :(. Without a doubt one of my all-time favorite players.

    Also, Saturday the 26th was the 8 year anniversary of the Sox winning the World Series.

    No Gamma. He is looking for a place for his ChiSox to move to since (as he says) Chicago does not appreciate them.

    The Sox could be a very good team this year, just need some bullpen help.
