Only pain Ordonez has is Chicago blues

"Ordonez, the White Sox's former cleanup hitter, joined the Tigers as a free agent before last season. The Tigers finished 28 games behind the first-place White Sox in the American League Central.

'It's hard to see your teammates win the World Series,' Ordonez said. 'You spent your whole career there and left one year early. I didn't know they were going to win the World Series.'"


Awwwww. LMAO!!!

Yuck it up. It will probably be another 88 years before the Sox win it again.

Look for Maggs to be the '06 comeback player of the year.

Go Tigers!

hopefully that puts a fire in his belly - when he stays healthy this season, he'll be an all-star for sure.

ErikD, get real. Look at the White Sox lineup. There's probably not a tougher overall lineup in the American League. Deep, deep pitching... solid defense... and an offense that's improved over last year.

The Sox have a very good shot at repeating.

Can't wait for the season to start.

The Tigers have no pitcher that is comparable to Freddy Garcia, their ace. Pitching wins games. Mismanagement of a once-proud franchise does not.

The Sox thought they were beefing up after they won in 1959 and look what happened. You never know how things will turn out especially with so many teams you have to beat to get back in the Fall Classic.
They look good on paper but that doesn't win games.

Sox were a fluke, they'll finish last in the division this year. :-)

sox were extremely lucky:

a) career years out of all of the picthing staff. I'll admit they have some good SPs, but jebus
b) complete lack of injuries, well except frank thomas, but that's a given

Sox seemed to get all the breaks, true. But you don't lead your division wire-to-wire (while holding off a strong challenge from the resurgent Indians), win 99 games, and then go 11-1 in the playoffs if you're not a damn fine team.

Buehrle and Garcia have solid, consistent credentials. Garland is just coming into his prime. Contreras arguably has the best stuff of that staff and has learned how to pitch to major league hitters. For this year, Vazquez is added, another innings-eater.

The Sox were for real in 2005, and they will be again this year. Not saying they'll win it all again, but they will be in the playoffs.

The Sox are good, no doubt about it, and they may very well repeat. The thing is their pitching got really awesome out of nowhere, and everyone kept waiting for it to cool off, but it never did. You could say that its likely they won't repeat the same performance, but it seems like every time you count out the White Sox, they bite you in the ass.

Go Tigers
