White Sox morning roundup

From yesterdaythis morning:

Chuck Garfien discovered a classic Hawk Harrelson rant involving fan interference, Joe Brinkman and the Texas Rangers from 1991. The diatribe in question:

That was a hilariously bad call-then-non-call by Brinkman, so Hawk's well within his rights here.

Speaking of hilarious YouTube videos, here's what happens when you give a White Sox fan a Cubs gift for Christmas.

We looked at the top five storylines of 2011, with the downturns of Adam Dunn and Alex Rios topping the list.

And finally from us, Chicago Tribune Live debated whether the White Sox are rebuilding.

James at White Sox Observer argues the A's blowing up of their team has hurt the trade market for White Sox players. It's an interesting argument, and one that's steeped in a not-so-covert disdain for the A's.

Prospect guru John Sickels rolled out his White Sox top 20 prospects. "No organization is completely empty and there are some interesting guys here, but overall the White Sox have well-earned their reputation as the weakest farm system in the game."

White Sox Talk Podcast on The Three Amigos: Jimenez, Robert and Adolfo

The White Sox three outfield prospects are creating a lot of buzz at spring training.

On this edition of the podcast, Micker Adolfo tells Chuck Garfien about a conversation they all had about one day becoming the starting outfield for the White Sox. Adolfo talks about his longtime friendship with Eloy Jimenez, his impressions of Luis Robert, Luis Basabe and the White Sox future.

But first, it's a conversation with MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez who has great insight on many of the White Sox players: Jimenez, Robert, Yoan Moncada and Jose Abreu. He tells an amazing story about why Jimenez decided to sign with the Cubs when he was a teenager, how much Abreu is revered in Cuba and much more.
