DateQuestionAnswer
2008-01-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)One of my favorite things you have said regarding team building is that teams NEED to have an honest, realistic assessment of what their strengths and weaknesses are and realize when and when not to go for a broke. In that regards, what the hell has Ken Williams been drinking? Every time he opens his mouth he makes me laugh hysterically. I quote, "We have some stiff competition, but if you look player-by-player, position-by-position, we stack up against anyone." What?
(twayda from Chicago)
I think Kenny has started to heed this lesson -- gravitating, obviously, toward the "win now!" side -- but it might prove to be too little, too late. The miscalculation may simply be that in the American League Central, everybody but the Tigers and Indians has a very tough road to toe. Hell, the White Sox might very well be the favorites to win the NL Central. It's going to be an entertaining team to watch, though. A little bit of 1991 Tigers in that bunch. (Nate Silver)
