Svelte Everett in 2005?

filed by George Bova

January 21,2005

While the rest of the Chicago media gushes and giggles along with the rest of the city's ignoramuses attending the Cubs Convention, the Sun-Times filled space with some leftover coverage from last weekend's SoxFest, an interview with Carl Everett. Finally, a bit of news about a REAL baseball team from Chicago!

Carl confirms what totally biased Sox Fans already knew, he was badly overweight to avoid injury and play at peak level last season. The big guy has lost fifteen pounds so far this winter and has entered "phase 2" of a Sox-prescribed conditioning regimen. Designed for sprinters, Carl expects it will keep his legs strong throughout the 2005 season. He didn't explain how this might help a designated hitter, as that is where he most certainly will at least begin the season filling in for the still recovering Frank Thomas.

A pudgy Carl managed some decent power number for Boston back in 2000, but both he and Ozzie are talking the same talk about singles and doubles more than making up for any lack of home run balls. Ozzie also says he'll reevaluate his outfield situation when Frank returns, promising Carl has a shot at outfield play if his offensive production at DH proves it's warranted.

A little depth between DH and the outfield isn't a bad thing, eh Sox Fans?
