    Alomar's current numbers may stink, but get ready for a new, happy Alomar -- now out of the media spotlight in New Yawk -- to explode. This is a guy who, when motivated, can succeed. He's got six steals, but I expect him to run a lot more on a team that allows it. Nobody runs in New York, and nobody runs for Art Howe. He's got power, but Shea Stadium hurts him, while Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field is more hitter friendly. The ChiSox also have a much better lineup, and Alomar should score loads of runs ahead of Magglio Ordonez and Frank Thomas. Don't forget that in 2001 Alomar hit .336 with 66 extra-base hits and 30 steals.

    i was surprised to see them make these moves too, very impressive....i still think they could use one more good starter, as i am not sure how good loiza can continue, but i look for big second half from buerhle, and colon is always solid....but they definitely have the offense now....they may try and beat opponents into submission, not worry about how many they give up.....
