2001 Review

Brian's 2001 got off to a strange start as he and Mike Sirotka were traded for David Wells. For awhile he along with Sirotka weren't sure if the trade would stand. As we all know the trade was held up and Simmons played a season with Toronto. Brian hit a Juilo Ramirez like .178 in 60 games. Brian like Chris Singleton can play all outfield positions. Simmons played 7 games in right, 12 in center, and 19 in left.  No errors for the speedy Simmons. After the season was over he was picked up off waivers by Kenny Williams and the Sox.

For 2002, the WSI Wiz predicts...
The Wiz sees Brian struggling for a spot on the roster and spending time in Charlotte waiting for a chance to break into the Sox line up.  His chance doesn't come until September when the roster expands to 40.  The Wiz sees in his crystal ball, Brian playing center field at Comiskey in front of spot on the wall very evidently dented from a previous collision.  Is this enough for Brian to avoid the waiver wire next winter?  The Wiz thinks Brian needs to borrow the magic jewel of Zanzibar to complete this trick.
