I am happy for Juan Pierre that he reached the 2,000 hit milestone tonight. :D: I liked that the Sox players came to the top step of the dugout and gave Juan a standing & clapping ovation. And the few Sox fans that were at the Park tonight cheered loudly for Juan.

Congratulations, JP! :)

Great career achievement, and I'm glad he did it while in a Sox uniform. Thanks for being a class ballplayer, JP!

Nearly as much love here as PK's 2000th, HA!

I'm glad he was able to rise above his bad start this year. Good work Juan!

Congrats to Juan on his 2000th hit! Well done!
Juan's ranking on the Sox for this tough 2011 season:

Hits- 1st
BA- 3rd
Runs- 2nd
OBA- 2nd
SB-1st
SH- 1st
RBIs-4th
RISP- 1st

Considering his admitted terrible first half,Juan pulled it together to have a pretty solid year. If the rest of the offense had performed as well as Juan and PK,Sox would be right there with the Tigers.

Congratulations, Juan! I wouldn't mind seeing him come back next year, the Sox could do a lot worse and probably will.

He's just not a good fit for a bench role since he can only play LF- tough to use a roster spot on a player like that.

He doesn't deliver enough impact on offense to be a starting LF- especially in the American League.

Congrats Juan. Now leave. I've never been a big Juan Pierre fan, but I've come to respect him greatly. He works hard and never gives you the diva prima donna attitude so prevalent today. Congratulations to him on this milestone and the posters here who hung in there with him when he had that terrible start this season. If nothing else remember him for starting things off for the Marlins in the Bartman game when he doubled to left field just when it looked like Prior was cruising to victory.

Congratulation to Juan for a great achievement. I think he's underappreciated by many White Sox fans, but he's an incredibly hard worker, never gives up, and withstood some (IMHO) undeserved hostility from some fans earlier in the year. He had a horrible start, but the outright hostility from some was excessive.

Glad he's put together a great second half, and hit this milestone!

Congrats, Juan. I watched the little interview with him after the game. I love his demeanor. Very sweet.

Wow! Have to admit I'm surprised by these stats. Good job, Juan and congratulations on Number 2000

Congrats Juan.

But we need an upgrade for next year. .335 obp, no power, limited ability to steal. It looks decent, though on this offense, with .161 hitters, etc.

Speaks more to how terrible our offense is. Juan rebounded nicely, better than I expected, that's for sure, but I am not at all interested in seeing him play for the Sox ever again.

Thanks Juan for helping to prove my Pierre/Dunn theory true. Of course, Dunn did most of the heavy lifting...

Sure, he has his faults. Slow start, limited arm range and decreasing speed. An upgrade would be nice. However, examining some of the latest "upgrades" has me concerned. Wasn't Mark Kotsay supposed to be an upgrade at DH? Then wasn't Adam Dunn supposed to be an upgrade on Kotsay? If those upgrades aren't a death spiral, I don't know what one is.

When I look at the players that people here are either expecting to be gone, or want gone, from next year's roster, I certainly hope that they are ready for the consequences. People have gone nuts because the Sox have been a .500 team; get ready for a .450 team next year.

And don't give me the crap that fans will accept that to see kids who are hustling and trying hard. We've had that in the past, and fans did NOT accept it.

Of course you are right, but hardly anyone calling for the upheavel they say they want is willing to admit that they are truly willing to accept it and support it. Now I don't want to turn this into another 'support' discussion, but I note it only because no matter what anyone's view is on the issue, ownership has to answer that question in the offseason. It won't be easy.
