Chicago White Sox: One last look

Ah, Opening Day. Between the crack of the bat, the smell of peanuts and hot dogs, the packed ballpark and just pulling your kid out of school so he/she can catch the first game of the year, there’s no other day quite like it. It’s a special day and no doubt one of the best days of the year. It offers new hope for everyone: hope for players that had a disappointing season in the...

For example with this year's White Sox, nobody really knows if GM Rick Hahn will go out and acquire a catcher or a third baseman, for example (there are other possibilities). It might be both, it might be neither, and other unknown deals can effect the...
