Sox-wise and Otherwise

My weekly offseason musings about the White Sox and more...

Will SoxFest be a Lovefest?

    It all begins tomorrow and continues through
    Sunday at the downtown Palmer House Hilton.  
    Current Sox players and execs, past players
    and execs plus fans from near and far will be
    part of the last formal gathering of Pale Hosers
    before the trucks are loaded and headed for
    Camelback Ranch in Glendale.

    I have to think there will be great energy and
    optimism about the team Kenny Williams and
    the Sox brass have put together.

Pale Hose Bits & Pieces

47750427.jpg     Sox phenom Gordon Beckman (above in celebration mode) tells Joe Cowley of the
     Sun-Times that he’s comfortable at second base and adds that he’s looking forward
     to a special year on the South Side. GBeck participated in “Camp Cora” in Miami from
     January 12-14, working with new keystone partner Alexei Ramirez. Well, Jermaine
     Dye
and Jim Thome (celebrating above) are still available. Any takers out there?
     Based on what I’m hearing, there’s little chance either one will return to the South  
     Side…Word is that coach Greg Walker has liked what he’s seen of Alex Rios this 
     winter. How great would it be if he returned to his All-Star form? You have to think
     Rios’  2009 performance was an aberration. I sure hope so.
