3,134 total days on DL for Sox players. The next-lowest, the Minnesota Twins, had 6,291. :o:

:clap: to Herm Schneider and the rest of the Sox training and conditioning staff for their hard work and expertise.

That's insane! Everyone knows Herm does a great job but he's on another level.

Now we have The Sodfather and The Bodfather!

It also shows you how just a few injuries to key players can derail a season. The Sox have been blessed the last decade but that didn't help them in 2001 and 2004.

It doesn't take many when they happen.

Just make sure you don't give him any "elbow tightness" while doing so...the Cubs wouldn't like that too much.

Ironically, the extensive DL trips have been the "knock on Wood" for most of his career.

OK, I'm done.

Why are you bringing me up in a thread about staying healthy?

According to Kerry Wood, we were thisclose to signing him until the ghost of Ron Santo told him to take less money from the Cubs.

Divine intervention!

What are you talking about? Urinating anywhere is absolutely healthy.

To the OP: Thanks for jinxing them....I wonder which key player will get injured now?:scratch:

Just like not talking to the pitcher during a no hitter, you don't talk about injuries like this. :talktothehand:

I hope I'm just being overly superstitious and I end up being wrong.:praying:

Especially on Moises Alou's hands.

Probably the entire 25 man rosters in Chicago, Charlotte and Birmingham. Minimum.

So, let me get this straight: the heaviest team (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=126193) in MLB was also the healthiest. :thinking: Don't shrug this off to mere coincidence!

JR is no dummy. He buys the Sox, then goes out and gets the best trainer. He must have recognized where salaries were going and wanted to protect his investments. Now let's get him another championship.

Herm Schneider was already the White Sox trainer when JR bought the team. He's been their head trainer since 1979.

Jinxes and curses are for losers.

While I agree....and I'll add that jinxes are an extremely irrational idea. Sports players and particularly baseball players tend to be an extremely superstitious bunch.

You could merely chalk a curse or jinx up to a coincidence. But, there sure are alot of them.

For example, in an NFL game when a stat is flashed across the screen that "Player X hasn't missed a field goal of X amount of yards in X number of tries" and then he misses it, you could say he at least had a 50-50 shot to miss it anyway.

Same goes for a ballgame when they do the same stat flash saying "X player hasn't struck out with WRISP in X amount of at-bats" and then BAM! he strikes out.

Then there's players such as Brian Urlacher who before the 2009 season had back surgery and declares that "he's in the best shape of his career.....and has never felt better" and then injures his thumb in the first game of the year and is out for the season.

Then there's these guys:

The Madden Jinx (http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/the-madden-curse/)

Were any of the examples above because of a jinx or curse? Probably not. Is there such thing as a jinx or a curse? Probably not. It's something people do to explain the irony of sports and the coincidences that happen in them.

I just hope this thread and the article in the OP's link doesn't become one of those ironic moments.

There is no "probably not" about it. Curses and jinxes do not exist.
