South Side Sox has been silent while I was trying to remember all the words to Auld Lang Syne and get my fill of terrible officiating. -- We didn't miss much. There were fewer moves in baseball over the days surrounding the new year than there were in the days surrounding Christmas, and I suspect it will stay that way until the end of the week.
What we did miss
- Bryan Smith of Baseball Analysts remembered the Sox run.
Cyril Morong from the Chicago Sports Review examined the Thome acquisition.
Thome, that is about 8 more RC for a total of 55. So Thome is either 37 RC or 50 RC ahead for about 3.7-5 extra wins over Everett.
- I found a couple of annoying internet quizzes. Who's your White Sox dream date? and Which White Sox post-season moment are you? -- I love the internet.
