In the airport waiting for our flight to MO. Thinking about the Chicago White Sox' woes this season. Impatient hitters, injuries, bad starting pitching, aging veterans. You know what they need? Some grit
. St. Louis Cardinals free agent-to-be David Eckstein is becoming target No. 1 on the Sox' offseason wish list. He would give them a leadoff hitter with a career .349 on-base percentage and a sure-handed shortstop.
The White Sox are single-handedly trying to prove as true everything that I, and people like me, believe. If they sign Eckstein next year, all things being equal, they will be the worst-GMed team in history.
By the way, reader Mike directed me to this article via an AOL FanHouse blog discussion, located here
. For a good time, read the comments below the post. Two rings in five years!!!!!!
About to board. I'm coming, Yakov
