Nothing like ESPN checking, re-checking and checking their facts. (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/roster?team=chw)

Check out the pitching coach.

In fairness to ESPN.com, that's what they do with DH's. There are so few players classified as DH's that it's not worth it to create a separate listing so they just add them to the OF section.

As for the Nardi thing... :o:

Apparently they think Shingo Takatsu is 38 years old.

from the new hot stove report:
White Sox closer
The Sox signed Shingo Takatsu, 38, the all-time saves leader in Japan. But he throws 88 mph tops, he throws from down under, he's a trickster who lives on the outside corner and doesn't appear to have much to get left-handed hitters out.
Koch

Billy Koch remains an option if he can find whatever he lost. Damaso Marte has wicked stuff, but there's a real question whether he is mentally ready to close.

It's from Tim Kurkijan so it's not really a suprise.

They are turning into the Enquirer.

I mean, this is what they do...WRITE ABOUT SPORTS. When you are reading something from ESPN, you figure it to be credible.

Next thing you know, you get into an argument with your Sox buddy saying Shingo is 38 years old, and you lose 50 bucks. Then, you can't pay rent, get kicked out of your house, you wife divorces you and you are living on the street. Just like that.

If anyone is thinking of PAYING ESPN.COM to manage their fantasy sports leagues, DONT. I used them for football this year and they sucked - bigtime.
