Lerew Reminds White Sox: You're Still A Few Bats Short


Thanks to the Royals, the White Sox now have a 2-game losing streak to bad baseball teams. It's time to get serious about adding some new hitters to the lineup.

What Will Ozzie Guillen's Preferred Lineup Look Like?


Ozzie Guillen's lineups are going to be ugly until they finally bring in a real DH.

Note to Ozzie: Forget the leadoff man, love the long ball

Jim gives some helpful, unsolicited roster and lineup construction advice to Ozzie. No. 1: Bat Getz first against righties and Fields first against lefties. No. 2: Start Anderson in center three out of four days and bat him eighth or ninth. No. 3: Bat Quentin second, load up on power and make no apologies.

White Sox Probable Lineup


Now that the White Sox appear to be done for the off-season, we can get a better look a their probable '09 lineup

As usual, Guillen sounding off just a lot of wind


The most interesting thing about Guillen's weekend rant this time was not the rant but the reaction to it. Radio, TV and newspapers: Ozzie erupts! Ken Williams: Ozzie threw me under the bus! Two things. One, what Guillen said a few days ago about the team's offensive struggles was a frustrated manager attempting to send a message to his team, nothing more. And nothing new. Judging by the Sox's 9-5 victory over the Royals on Tuesday, it apparently worked. Two, Williams completely overreacted to what Guillen said about the Sox's roster. By now, he should know that when Guillen says he expects the general manager "to do something," it means he expects Williams to roll his eyes at his manager's impetuousness. Ozzie being Ozzie is an acceptable explanation for almost anything the man says.

Shake Up The Sox: You Make The Call


SSH's Favorite Post Ever The White Sox 40-man roster is back to 38 following the DFA of Dewayne Wise. Use the comment section to give your "quick fix" to the Sox offense. Change the lineup....

Gonzales suggests lineup changes


1. Lf Carlos Quentin. Highest on-base percentage at .399, and at least he can drive himself in with a team-high nine home runs. 2. C A.J. Pierzynski. A left-handed hitter helps in the second spot, and Pierzynski is batting .303 and has only 10 strikeouts. 3. RF Jermaine Dye. The only middle-of-the-order hitter who is producing. 4. 1B Paul Konerko. Only 11 extra base hits but has fewer strikeouts (24) than Dye, Nick Swisher or Jim Thome. 5. 3B Joe Crede. Will end up his career as a No. 5 hitter (cleanup if he plays for San Francisco), so why not give him a chance now? 6. CF Swisher. On-base percentage has dipped to .331, but having a switch-hitter in the middle of the order helps - if the game is on the lineup late in games. Brian Anderson deserves more of a look somewhere, based on his power potential and satisfying his unpaid advisers. 7. DH Jim Thome. Take away his first two at-bats vs. Sabathia, and he's batting .212 vs. left-handers. It's worth giving Alexei Ramirez a chance against left-handers. Anderson also could serve as DH, but team would lose one of its best defensive outfielders. 8. SS Orlando Cabrera. More of a top-of-the-order hitter, but .224 average doesn't reflect his track record. 9. 2B Juan Uribe. Recently raised his batting average over .200.

Cowley Tweets: Chages a comin'


Talk around the clubhouse is one, and maybe two, players could be sent packing tomorrow. The Reaper is a coming kids. Lock the doors. [UPDATE]: Looks like Uribe might have played his last game in a White Sox uniform.
