2001 Review

Chris had a long 2001. When the Sox acquired Royce Clayton it meant that Jose Valentin had to play center field. Which in turn meant Singleton had to ride the bench. Singleton also had company as Juilo Ramirez made the team and shared time with Singleton as a spot starter. Ramirez was sent down due to his poor hitting which have Chris the sole position as the back up center fielder. Valentin soon after hurt himself which gave Singleton the starting job back. Aaron Rowand came up in June after Harold Baines was injured. The Sox wanted to see what he could do, but with Carlos in left and Magglio in right the only place to play was center.

Rowand and Singleton split time in center for the remainder of 2001. Singleton at one point made comments about wanting to be traded. As we know he wasn't and Singleton hit .298 in 2001, and his defense was flawless.

For 2002, the WSI Wiz predicts...
The Wiz predicts Chris Singleton will have more trouble competing for his centerfield job in 2002 against Aaron Rowand and Brian Simmons than he did in 2001 competing against Julio Ramirez and Jose Valentin.  The Wiz sees a vision in his crystal ball of Chris complaining to the media about lack of playing time.  Unlike 2001, Chris is sad to report he no longer is "the guy" in Jerry Manuel's outfield.  Chris still gets plenty of playing time because of injuries to certain unnamed players.
