Sad that Carl has to live down to expectations. Always has had anger issues,but aggravated assault with a deadly weapon? What a waste of talent,if these charges are accurate and he is convicted.

You could hear him in the bleachers as the park just watched in silence.

Carl was at the Sun-times memorabilia show a few weeks ago, had him autograph my World Series ball. Nice as could be. Oh well.

My brother and I met him at Sox Fest, well at the bar, and he was beyond friendly.

It's too bad. I absolutely loved him as a player. In fact (as someone has already mentioned), I think this is the type of leader the Sox are missing. I remember when the Sox let Carl go, he spoke honestly about how he didn't think the Sox would be successful the next year and everyone here viewed him (his remarks) similar to as they have with Bobby Jenks this year (plus way too many dinosaur jokes). But he didn't get personal and (IIRC) was very matter-of-fact in his statements. The Sox missed the playoffs that year.

I luv that guy and I miss him too. The Sox have been lacking that type of clubhouse presence/leadership since he's been gone.

Putting a gun to your wife's head is nothing noble. Carl shows his true colors. Thank God he didn't pull the trigger.

Thank God he didn't pull the trigger, very true but this incident has nothing to do with Carl and his time on the Sox in 05.

I appreciated what he brought to the field and the intensity he had in the clubhouse. The Sox could use three of him in the clubhouse today. Maybe these guys wouldn't be "tipping their cap" as much to pitchers.

By no means am I defending that specific action, but none of us know what the circumstances of the situation were or the exact context of what happened. None of us were there. The truth probably is somewhere in the middle, and most likely there is a fair amount of blame to go around between the wife and Carl. I'll leave it at that.

Carl Everett never caused any trouble on the south side of Chicago. Except maybe for the Houston Astros that one time.

Sadly this seems to be the exception rather than the rule.

If his wife did something to "deserve having a gun held to her head" she would be in jail also. No need to defend a moron just because he used to play for the White Sox. He is what he is.

I agree, and in that light it makes sense when Carl said (2006) that the
White Sox would not repeat WS victory now that he was no longer on the team. Crazy Carl may have been the emotional sparkpug.

Everything you said is correct, but since no one has claimed that his wife is innocent, or made the claim that there weren't any reasons he felt compelled to take the alleged actions, there's no need to say what you did (IMO, of course). I think it only serves to give the implication that there are circumstances that could potentially warrant holding a gun to the head of your wife of nearly 20 years... which, while there may be a couple, they're so few and far between that I think we can pretty much assume they weren't in play here. I feel very comfortable in saying that what he's accused of doing should never happen, regardless of the context.

EDIT: ... but I'm also confident that there is blame (however minimal it may be) to also be placed on someone besides just Carl Everett.

Good thing they mentioned the square footage of his home in that article. That'll probably play a big part in his criminal trial.

Maybe his lawyer will use the well-established "vocal leader" defense.

Pete:

If memory serves the throat slashing gesture was after the Astros threw and hit Crede. he was sticking up for a teammate. Given the number of Sox players getting hit (like last night) without repercussions someone who can defend them is probably needed...it looks like that's beyond Ozzie.

In 2006 when they did not bring Carl Everett back for another season on white sox he said something like "I guarantee they will not repeat as champions without me on the team..." Everyone here laughed said it was just "Crazy Carl" talking, but eh, more than a shovel full of truth to that statement as well as your observation. Hope he has a lawyer.

Carl played for the White Sox therefore he can't be an *******. Pointing guns at his wife's head, beating family members, he didn't do anything wrong, its something that goes on in every single household. And of course, getting rid of him cost the Sox another championship or 3, nevermind he never won again (or previously) and was released in July of 2006 after hitting .227 for Seattle. No one was smart enough to pick him up.

He's just a innocent victim. We don't know the whole story. Its not his fault. It can't be. He was on the White Sox WS team.

I don't read anything like what Dick was postulating from the responses here.

He seems to be a bad individual...and that's seperate from what he did on the field with the White Sox six years ago.

And some feel that Everett filled a needed void on the club when he was here and that the Sox have lacked that since.

That is a different issue from his off the field actions which I don't see anybody applauding do you?
