Why the White Sox probably won’t be particularly competitive in 2012

I accepted an invitation to start writing once a week at Southside Showdown, and started things out by telling my new audience that the 2012 team would probably be pretty bad.  Not definitely, not almost definitely, just probably.  Hooray for first impressions!

You have to click the title for the link, so you can be whisked off to a different, weird place to read the post.  One way to think of it, is that you get two posts from me today.  Another way to think about it, is to resent me forever for creating a minor peculiarity in your web trafficking once a week.

  • I don't think they will even try this year.

  • They had better. The Vegas sportbooks will probably not appreciate them throwing all 162.

  • I'm afraid people will read page 1 and think that's it. I don't like the 1, 2 arrangement. No 'Next' either; just a '>>'.

    I thought a 1300+ word post needed a break in it, but I will defer to your wisdom and change it.

    yes, no question a break is nice. you don't want 3 pages on the main page. I just didn't like the absence of a clear 'click here' sign once inside. look at the setup here. a little text on the main page followed by a clear 'read more' link. can you do the same over there? now that I look at posts on the main page before yours I see a 'Continue reading this post »'. that's good, right?

    Aw crap, you mean I have to LEARN the formatting for all the sites I write for?

    Just kidding, thanks Wiz.

    we don't want northsideshowdown to look better than southsideshowdown!

  • In reply to The Wizard:

    That had better not be what their Cubs blog is actually called.

  • In reply to James Fegan:

    to google!

    *** goes to google ***

    damn congress sellouts...

    Well, at least if SOPA passes, you can just post an illegal stream in the comment section to every blog you don't like. It'll be like the Wild West...only if everyone's gun was REALLY accurate!
