Leave Nix at third and send Fields back down to Charlotte. Bring up Beckham to play shortstop. Ramirez in center field, leave Getz at second. Bring up Allen to platoon with Konerko at first base. And this team will be competitive.

Better yet,launch Walker on the next plane to home so he can catch up on some fishing or whatever they do down south.

Sounds good to me. Something like that would give this team a boost. Stop fooling around with the under achievers and get some guys who want to play. It'd be a lot more fun to watch!

If they are benching Fields over Ks, why was he ever on the roster to begin with?
In his last year up, he was on pace to break the all time single season strike out record and has struck out at the same pace in the minors. Why would anyone expect anything different when he was called up?

I like fields but why would Ozzie be suprised. He had over 100 strike outs two years ago and didnt even play a full season.

How high were you when you posted this? Nix at third? Ramirez in center field? Bring up Allen? Dude seriously, lay off the crack and put down the bong because it's pretty obvious that it is starting to show signs of dumbism. Yes, I said it, DUMBISM.

Anderson may not be back as soon as he thinks ? Ozzie hates Anderson, it must have been killing him that Anderson was playing so well ! This team will frustrate fans all year, I agree Walke needs a new address don't know what he does or how he helps but this teams has way to many hitting slumps, GO Sox

Do you not realize that some players struggle at first in the big leagues? Not everybody can be "The Man" at first like Alexie.

Anybody remember at the end of spring training when I said that the can't hit, can't field, no talent Josh Fields reminded me of Harmon Killebrew?

You are probably thinking "it's no wonder that this guy was the worst GM, as well as announcer, in the history of the game". Well, I stand by my comments. Josh Fields reminds of Harmon Killebrew.

Of course, Harmon will soon be 73 years old and hasn't played in 34 years, but right now, they are very similar players. Maybe a slight edge to Harmon. He still has good power for a 73 year old.

Mercy. Does anybody actually beleive the crap I spew?

Fields will be fine.
He's scuffling.
He's not a 3B and he'll probably be a 1b/DH throughout his career.
For now, the Sox have him at the league minimum where he will be of value.
I am, however, disappointed in what he's shown this year.

Josh Filed xukks! Please fire Walker immediately. I do not want him around the youngsters when they are ready.

Remember when Moose Muhamed when he said that Chicago is a place where WR's go and die! This can be said of Greg Walker because the man is dangerous.

Ken Williams if you had any samrts you would get rid of Walker because he destroys the future of the Sox.

Sounds good to me. But why platoon Konerko and Allen? Paulie is batting over .300 and is getting hotter s the season goes on.

Only a complete idiot would think a major-league hitting coach has THAT kind of impact on a team's hitting.
