2001 Review

The man known as Manos sure earned his money in 2001. While the Sox were in the Alex Rodriguez hunt then short stop Jose Valentin agreed to move to center field if Rodriguez was signed. After Rodriguez signed with Texas new General Manager Kenny Williams traded for Royce Clayton. So Valentin moved to center where he played only 24 games, an injury to his hamstring forced him back to the infield. With Clayton at short Manuel sat Herbert Perry and played Valentin at 3rd. Jose played 66 games at 3rd where he committed 13 errors. Jose got a chance to play short again do to poor hitting by Royce Clayton. Valentin played 43 games at short where he committed 9 errors.

At the plate Valentin's hottest month was August where he hit .284 and smacked 8 home runs. Of course we can not forget his mocking of Cubs icon Sammy Sosa at Wrigley Field. He's pure guts folks.

For 2002, the WSI Wiz predicts...
The Wiz predicts Valentin will be given a break from trying to fill every hole in the team's roster and assigned the relatively simple task of filling just the hole at third base.  The Wiz sees Valentin responding with decent, but not overwhelming numbers for a thirdbasemen.  Valentin is roundly booed at Wrigley Field after a reprise performance of his two-fingered kissy routine after hitting a game-winning homerun.  The Wiz foresees a prominent Chicago hotdog manufacturer pursuing Valentin for an endorsement deal.
