2001 Review

Jeff Liefer was called up from AAA Charlotte when Frank Thomas went down. Liefer played 15 games at 1st, 15 at 3rd, 35 in left, and 4 in right. Jeff is a Jim Thome type hitter, he is capable of hitting the ball along way and he can strike out a ton. Jeff hit 18 homers and had 69 strike outs in 254 at-bats. His hottest hitting month came in September where he hit .366 in 13 games.

For 2002, the WSI Wiz predicts...
Jeff struggles to find a place on Jerry Manuel's team.  The Sox use him primarily as a left-handed bat off the bench.  Liefer becomes good friends with Tony Graffanino and the two of them open a restaurant which immediately receives acclaim with food critics and dining connoisseurs. The Wiz predicts franchising deals occupying a large amount of Jeff's time.
