  • The White Sox look like a team in need of a leadership change. Joe Crede hit a homer the other day that was fair by a yard, and Jerry Manuel jogged out to argue and really didn't stick up for his player. That team should be better than it is and should play together more.

  • Part of their problem has been (Paul) Konerko. He had been trying to pull everything. He's just now started to go the other way a bit.
