Does anyone know what past Sox players are doing today? Any personal experience with any former players?

A cousin of mine went to Bucky Dent baseball academy. He said that he was a great guy.

I remember when Dent was almost the Mgr of the Sox.

I know one of their old shortstops is a manager somewhere now. And a beloved old DH is now a first-base coach for a first place team, though he's still missing time with the knee problems that haunted him as a player. As for the rest of the history of the White Sox, I have inside info that says many of them are playing golf and sitting on deck chairs in Florida and Arizona enjoying retirement, except for a few of their old outfielders and a pitcher who also talk on TV or radio about how games are going during the season, and save the golf and deckchairs for the winter. :D:

Sorry, I'm a jerk. :redface:

:rolleyes: Yeah, how dare he ask if anyone have any personal experiences with former players when Google is available.

I doubt Google is going tell us what all former Sox players are doing today either.

Jose Valentin had a blog, which he stopped updating in 2008:

I googled Jose Valentin a bit more.

He bought a baseball team in Puerto Rico and plays 2B as a player-owner. Last season, he hit .237 with 2 HRs...and, amazingly, only 3 errors.

If those were his stats he must have only played about 15 games.

That would put him at his career averages in both categories.

Actually, all of the first baseman in Puerto Rico are 13-feet tall. Thus, none of Valentin's throws ever made it into the 18th row down there.

I skimmed and thought it was only about Dent. Meh.

I love unintentional humor.

Intentional humor is pretty awesome, too.
