After a stressful and emotional week where the Sox somehow massively transformed their roster by barely changing it at all, things have just gotten even better for the South Siders.
Manny Ramirez has made up for coming over in September and laying an egg!
Well he almost has. Because this headline is almost perfect.
It's one word away...let's fix it!
"Mystery groin affected ex-Sox Ramirez"
Really, it's an attempt by Scott Boras to lure another multi-million
dollar deal for Manny Ramirez by blaming his struggles on a groin injury
near the end of last season that made him awful....but wasn't severe
enough for him to realize it existed.
Uhhh...I guess when your client--a plodding power hitter--fails to hit
HRs in the easiest park to hit HRs in, you need to get creative.
"He's not washed-up! He was...he was...injured!"
"Yeah! Sapped him of his power!"
"Was this the leg injury? I thought he was cleared."
"No! Nope! It was a separate injury!"
"Separate? What was it?"
"His groin! He needed surgery!"
"Ouch....wait, why didn't he report it? Why was he playing?"
"Because he was so dedicated to the team."
"Uh, uh...he didn't know he had it!"
".......He didn't know he had it?"
"He'll take a one-year deal, right?"

J.J. at White Sox Examiner points out that having two 1st basemen signed for the next three years means we're putting The Tank in the garage.
Mike at White Sox mix reminds you to stop smiling and admit you're emotionally compromised by Paul Konerko (I know I am, but I'm easily emotionally compromised)
Jim at Sox Machine likes Donkey Kong, and thus likes the Dunn-Konerko pairing
