Minor League Deal. I do hope he makes the team. We always lit him up pretty good when he was with the Tigers.:cool: Remember when he was part of our 5th starter parade back in 2004?

I'd rather not. Thanks for undoing all of my therapy. Now the name Arnie Muņoz is suddenly ringing in my brain.

Josh Stewart.

Man, that was rough. You could make a real good argument that even with the injuries to Maggs and Frank, the 5th starter debacle is what cost us the division that year.

Great news for the Sox.

The 2004 5th starter parade was an absolute joke. We could have put a pitching machine out there and had the same results. If memory serves, the 5th starters COMBINED for only 3 wins in 2004. It was a miracle that we went 83W-79L considering we also played without Maggs and Frank for most of the year.

:o: Why bring that up? Now I can't get these horrible Arnie Munoz, Felix Diaz, David Wright and Grilli memories out of my head...

Hey, I'm just making you appreciate the 2010 rotation that much more!:cool:

I remember attending a Munoz start against the Indians. First pitch, long fly ball to right field. Magglio catches it at the wall. We all breath a sigh of relief.

Next two batters also hit long balls to right field. Way over Magglio's head this time.

Inauspicious start. I think the final score was like 8-0.

I believe you misremembered. Munoz made only one start in a White Sox uniform. It was against the Expos. The Sox lost that ballgame 17-14. A late FG attempt sailed wide right, unfortunately.

Munoz made 10 relief appearances with the Sox, but none against Cleveland.

That was MTL, not CLE. The game ended up as a slow-pitch softball game. I believe Carl Everett played in that game for the Expos.

Munoz actually pitched well in relief that year, but giving up eleven runs in less than two innings will kill your ERA.

The longer Grilli stays in the AL Central, the better. Hope to see him in the majors.

Is CLE really that desperate for pitching?
