If he's still hurting and can't run without pain, aren't we shooting ourselves in the foot (no pun intended) if he gets hurt and DL's again??

Should we just have a BA sent down thread in the roadhouse and a TCQ called up in the clubhouse?

No amount of time on the DL will make this better. We might as well use him for all we can now since he has to wait until the off-season anyways for surgery.

Plus, I think everyone is missing the most important point in this thread. Who gives a **** about either BA or Wise? Choosing one over the other isn't the big thing here. The big thing here is...


WE HAVE THE CARLOS QUENTIN BACK!!!

DickAllen72
07-20-2009, 03:26 PM
I find it peculiar, but not surprising, that there is more discussion of how bad Wise is than about how good it will be to have Q back in the order.
Because the benefit of having Q back in the order is a no-brainer while the keeping of Dewayne Wise is a head scratcher.

But yes, having Quentin back is going to be a big improvement over BA/Wise in the order. My only fear is that if his foot still bothers him too much, he may be a singles hitting base clogger. Still, that's better than the almost automatic out that BA/Wise were.

gobears1987
07-20-2009, 03:27 PM
Here is a huge point that people are missing. I don't think anyone honestly expects TCQ to be fully healthy. He may play well for a month, but this injury will likely send him to the DL. When that happens the Sox need to call someone up. With BA having options, he can be sent down, and he can easily be called up again. Wise on the other hand isn't in the same boat. BA will be back with the Sox. It's a matter of when TCQ aggravates his injury since he needs surgery to solve the problem.

I was right. The lineup for tonight, 7/20.

Podsednik cf
Ramirez ss
Dye rf
Konerko 1b
Pierzynski c
Quentin lf
Beckham 3b
Nix 2b
Fields dh

Floyd p

I'm guessing when Thome is back in the lineup he might bat 6th or 7th...before or after AJ.

Yeah..that's what I was thinking...I transposed 6th and 7th. I may put Getz 9th though...sort of a second leadoff hitter there and move Beckham th 8th.

It seems pertinent to the discussion. One move corresponds to the other. The White Sox didn't simply recall Quentin today, they sent BA down in a corresponding move.

No one's trolling. No one's pissing all over a thread with irrelevance. This is absolutely germane to the thread.

Which is why the thread has been split. This is to comment on TCQ being called up. There is another thread for those who want to comment on BA being sent down. I agree with another poster that people seem to want to comment more on the 4th OF'er than the guy who had a shot at winning the AL MVP last year.

Pods (LH)- Hitting .300 onba....350+
Alexei (RH)- hitting great till last 3 games..til then in high .360's for awhile
Dye (RH)- hotter than hell lately
Thome (LH)- hot..Player of the week last week
PK (RH)- solid near .300 all year
AJ (LH)- over.300
Quentin (RH)- hitting .378 in minors
Getz (LH)- hitting .360+ last ten games
Beckham (RH)-hitting .380 + last 15 games.

I actually really, really like that lineup if TCQ produces.


What's not to like? If they can just keep it going...look out:D:

I'm hoping TCQ is still TCQ. Imagine how much better this lineup is with his bat instead of the crap we have seen from our old CFs? I guess a lot depends on how much of Pods D we can tolerate.

Dick Allen
07-20-2009, 05:28 PM
I know Ozzie's not a doctor, but I thought he said TCQ wasn't ready. Maybe we shouldn't expect too much. I know I'm not, but I'd love to be wrong.

DickAllen72
07-20-2009, 05:28 PM
I don't put too much stock in anything he says, but for whatever it's worth Joe Cowley was just on the Score saying that Quentin is only going to be starting 75-80% of the time. He also says although everyone is reporting on Carlos' injury as plantar fasciaitis, Carlos told him it's a partially ruptured tendon that has the potential of tearing further. He (Cowley) then likened it to a partially torn rope that is being stressed further and is likely to tear completely. Again, this is Cowley talking so take it with a grain of salt.

I just traded last week for TCQ and adjusted my lineup five minutes ago to include him. Big risk? Or is he going to get lots of ABs and knock in a bunch of runs? I think the latter.

Hopefully TCQ brings some needed spark to the team. Although this offense has been picking up as of late, a little more won't hurt this ball club.

If his foot is still that bad, why is he playing in left field? I mean, wouldn't it be better to put him at DH and take Wise over Fields? Fields isn't exactly tearing it up, so you don't lose too much on offense, and you might give Quentin a chance to heal a little more.

I heard a lot of talk radio today upset about BA, but this quote right here I think kinda sums up that move. If they lose Wise, they have to have faith TCQ and Pods will stay healthy all season long.

Podsednik left the Sox due to some injury problems, let's be honest about that. I don't want to jinx him, but it is a very serious threat that he could start pulling hammy's again.

Carlos' problem is obvious. This injury could pop up at any time really.

So, what if you lost both?! Brian Anderson in Cf, and Nix in LF? The new backup OFer is Fields? The Sox will have to sign Luis Terrero back to play, or Andy Gonzalez makes a return to the Infield.

I think keeping Wise for now is the right move, and I'm a BA fan. I just think Brian gets more everyday at-bats again, and Wise gets to go on embarassing himself at a major league level like both CFers have this season (To be fair Brian has been good for a 4th OFer, but still both are not offensively major league calibur).

JB98
07-20-2009, 06:33 PM
I'm really glad Quentin is back in the lineup. This move is a couple days overdue, IMO.

It's a coin flip as to whether Carlos can stay healthy enough to play. Let's cross our fingers and hope he can.

Waits for balke to get banned....


If something happened to Pods or TCQ the Sox could find a non hitting body to take up space in the outfied and start over Anderson with no trouble at all.

If you lose Wise, you actually have a better version of him in AAA, Norris Hopper. Or they could just sign the 10,000th person to attend the game that night and it would be the equivalent of or even better than Wise.

That said, great to see Quentin back on the field!!!!!!!

Ozzie said they liked how he ran in the minors last nite.
Carlos said he has no concerns and is ready.
I love having his menacing presence back at the plate.
We just need to have a lot of luck with this injury and I will hold my breath on every play to Carlos, but I think he is determined.

Feels like the Sox are back now. Let Freddy be his old self,and Pods ripping it up, I have to say it feels like old times. And that aint all bad.

Sam Spade

If you lose Quentin and Pods, the season is pretty much over unless you can make a move because it happens before the deadline. This is a tight race, scotty is a HUGE part of why the sox have been winning, and if he goes down, we are likely back to .500 or slightly below baseball. There is the off chance that wise or Andersnatch could get hot, but we really need one of pods or Q.

You expected them to keep 6 OF on their roster and lose a lefty bullpen arm? That would leave them with one.
