In light of the Bonds-Kent and Alomar-Cedeno shoving matches yesterday, I was thinking about what it would be like if the same thing happened with the White Sox. My question to the rest of you is, which two players do you think would square off? My vote is for Konerko and Royce- just because Konerko is having a terrific season, and Royce is killing the team.

Konerko would be the last guy to do that,because he is a team player to the core,and it shows.

Royce on the other hand,has proven he has no interest in being a team player.........

The only two position players that ever seem to open their mouths are Valentin and Lofton. If there was ever a clubhouse fight, I suspect it would start with something one of them said to someone else.

I'm not sure there is anybody amongst the pitching staff that fits the vocal leader category. Baldwin, Simas, DWells, and Parque are all gone.

Maybe that's part of our problem?

"Hey, I bring a lot of veteran presence!"

:ohno
"Yeah, we know."

The other possibility I came up with was Joe Crede trying to strangle Kenny Williams because he won't promote him.

Want Parque up here? Is Simas even doing anything yet? I see him in the dugout, is he going to go down to the minors anytime soon.

A leader isn't afraid to get into other people's faces when they aren't doing their job. Whether Simas or Parque sucks isn't the question. The question is who has the cajones to pin Todd Ritchie into his locker and say, "Start playing this game with your head out of your ***!"

As for Baldwin, clearly he was worth more than the Berry/Barry KW got for him. And yes, he would have been the guy to pin Ritchie's ***, too.

Ritchie choking Nardi. And Williams blaming Schueler for the fight.

I could see Frank and Jose going at it. The exchange might go something like this:

:hurt

"Nice glovework out there Valentin."

:manos

"Shut-up, 'Skirt! At least I play a position. You just sit here all day and do nothing."

:hurt

"I wouldn't call 450-foot homers nothing, little man!"

:manos

"You want a piece of me?"

:hurt

"Yeah, I think I do."

The two start to fight, but it doesn't last long. Frank nails Jose with a right to the jaw, and Valentin goes down. Bench coach Joe Nossik raises Frank's hand to signal that he has won the match.

Thomas only has around 365 home runs.

I was referring to the distance on some of his homeruns. The exact amount of homeruns he has hit is 361.

My fault, I'm blind.
