I have always wanted to see these two race around the bases. It would be slow and hilarious.

But on a more serious note, both of these men are not fleet afoot. However, during the scrubs game today, they showed that Robin has just 2 hidp in 168 ab. Compared to Paulie's 400 hidp so far this year :(

I'm watching the ESPN Gamecast and noticed David Wells smacked a double!

I remember Robin Ventura hit a couple triples with the Sox.

Then I remember Konerko hitting an inside the park homerun at the then called Comiskey Park.

Robin at least has an excuse, after that horrible ankle injury.

Konerko hit an inside the parker a couple years ago in Tampa Bay. Very funny.

But the slowest Sox player I can remember was Mike "Spanky" LaValliere (sp?) - he took those tiny little fred flintstone baby steps, only really, really, really, slowly. Watching him run (or, more accurately, try to run) was worth the price of admission.

Are you sure it's not more?

Thanks for 'jogging' my memory. :D: Spanky was so slow you could go get a beer & a dog before he got from 1st to 3rd.

Kark wasn't a hell of a lot quicker.

My favorite quote about Robin Ventura's speed came at SoxFest one year and was made by Ozzie Guillen, "In a race with a pregnant woman, Robin would finish third."

Yet another reason I wish Ozzie was still in the Sox organization.

Why isn't Ventura still on this team...?

I'd love to see Robin back with the WhiteSox. Maybe we could get him to play first for us next year.

Why?

Because I like Robin and the way he plays and since I don't expect the sox to win next year, it would be nice to find room for a player I really like.

Besides, who else should be our firstbasemen next year?

My first choice would be Frank Thomas.

The reality is it will be Paul Konerko.
