That’s not very nice, guys, posting this on the 18th!

First of all Scott I want to start by saying hello and I know everyone in the front office is working hard this off-season. I can relate to the hard work part and I myself gave a very strong interest at The Social Media Coordinator. All I can do is to be patient and see what happens. As always enjoy and have great time this off-season.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Have a happy, healthy, and fulfilling day for yourself and all your loved ones.

Go Sox’11 j.k.

Please have someone proof read the calendar for next year because my Sox calendar that was handed out during the games in April has November with 31 days and April of 2011 has 2 days that are labeled April 4th.

Today is a good day.

Not only did we get AJ back, but we got our left-handed power hitter in Dunn, who I’ve been a fan of since his days in Cincinnati. And I know there will be those who say that we had our left-handed DH in Thome and let him go for a failed experiement. And we know how well Thome did last year for the Twinkies (begrudgingly). But, what’s done is done, and I think Dunn will be a great addition to the team. I hope this is incentive to get Paulie back, but I know the nature of the business if we can’t. Still, a Konerko-Dunn lineup at 3-4 would be an awesome thing to see. Here’s hoping Opening Day 2011 gets here sooner. Go White Sox!

Hi jk and Josh~

I hope you both had great Thanksgivings! Josh, I just got done listening to Kenny’s press conference announcing Adam Dunn as a White Sox and the AJ signing. This part is pretty cool – seems that BOTH Dunn and AJ moved some of their contract money to later years in order to make room for Paulie’s return. Is that not team player type attitude or what? It would be so awesome to have Paulie back.


We bring Paulie back and, IMO, the team will be set from an offensive and field perspective. The next task will be rebuilding the bullpen after that.

It’sreally a great and useful piece of info.
I am glad that you shared this helpful information with us.
Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
