Willie Harris is a joke. He needs to be released immediately. He can't hit major leage pitching. That was proven last year. His supporters claim the Sox need him because of his speed. What good is speed if you can't get on base. He gets on today and gets picked off (it was ruled as a caught stealing) with the big hitters up. Some speed, huh? He is the only guy on the team that I despise.

We don't know if he has the skills, but he DEFINITELY does NOT have the mental approach to succeed in this league. He is like a faster, less talented version of D'Angelo Jimenez.

2 games...

He's been on base as many times as 5-million-dollar-jose.

I'm certainly dissapointed at WH start and seeing him get pciked off today just added to my dissapointment. I think if he hasn't turned it around by the end of May, we need to do something then.

I remember the day i heard about that signing and i thought it was a mistake,i mean Valentin is at the point of his carrer where he should be the left-hander coming off the bench.
We should have taken that money and used it to keep Gordon or Colon.

I agree. Especially with them acquiring Uribe. I'd rather see him play everyday at SS and have some sort of Bullpen than the mess we have now.

Randar:

Talk to me in a month, when Willie is hitting .147. I agree Jose is overpaid, but the Sox gave it to him. At least he can hit major league pitching. Jose against left handed pitchers is better then Harris overall. Jose is terrible against left handed pitching, but Harris is that much worse against everyone.

Huh? Where did I say Harris was going to hit .300 or anything of the sort. I'm just saying to settle the F*** down and stop pissing your pants at the first sign of trouble. How many hits does Crede have?

I am not pissing in my pants. I am not basing it on two games. I am basing it on last year too. Crede is going to be a good ball player. Harris is not. As I said earlier, Harris can't hit major league pitching. Case closed.

A)Comparing Crede and Harris is hilarious.

B)It's not two games. You are the one all about evaluating from past statistics...and I think he is hitting .210 with a .252 OBP in 328 at bats. It's not two games, its 138!

I watched most of this game today, and you beat me to it.
Willie Harris does not Look Good At All. He looks very Overmatched, you can tell the way the Pitchers were going
right after him. He is easily the biggest hole in our lineup right now. Since Durham "left", this has been a big prob for the SOX. Willie Harris is a Good Bench Player to have, were thrusting him in the 2b Job to Justify the Durham "Trade".........

They need to let Uribe play everyday at second, at least he is a career .257 hitter.

You are right. He is the biggest hole in our lineup. That is not good news for us with him leading off. A leadoff hitter is so important. A leadoff hitter sets the stage for the big boys in the middle of the lineup.

He gets his offense from Daddy Royce and his D from Mama Ramirez. Brutal.

this lack of a Lead-Off hitter is going to SNOWBALL for the SOX and become a Real Problem (as if it wasnt already) very shortly.
We should make a bet here.......I'll bet the Flubbies get a leadoff hitter before we do :angry:

Sox only had 3 hits today, and I know what you're sayin, but the 2 thru 7 hitters could have been 21-21 and none of them still would have driven in Harris.

Yes, Wille Harris being terrible has nothing to do with today's game and the others not hitting well today. Willie Harris was always terrible. He can't hit. If his best attribute is his speed, then he should be in track and field. His speed does nothing for the Sox if he can't get on base.

ACTUALLY, Harris is one of the few people to get on base. He walked, but got on base none-the-less. More than you can say for most of the lineup.

yeah and then Harris got picked off so a lot good it did for him to get on base. once again, harris can't hit. it has nothing to do with today's game.

I am just saying that you picking Harris out as the scapegoat after 2 games would be absolutely hillarious if it weren't so damned stupid. Valentin has almost as many K's as PA's.

Agree whole-heartedly. Which is why I loathe the fact that Valentin is #2 and Rowand is in CF. You're not going to turn Konerko or Rowand into Leadoff hitters or even competent #2 hitters!

CLee needs to be at #2 right now and we had all just better hope and pray that Jeremy Reed comes out of the gates hitting everything in sight for the next month or so and that whoever is at 2nd base on any given day at least makes a few things happen on the offensive end.

This team has much broader general issues than Willie Harris being singled-out.

I don't view Harris as a scapegoat, there were plenty of them Monday and today. Harris has never performed at a major league level, however, and he was handed the Sox starting 2B because he is cheaper than Durham and R. Alomar.

And because KW traded away all of the organization depth at 2B (Miles, Hummel, Jimenez).

I was in favor of giving Harris one last chance, but things aren't looking too good right now. We are screwed without any other (decent) options.

I'm glad you pointed out decent options,of which Miles,Hummel,and Jiminez were not.

Why is Harris using a helmet with two ear-flaps? He looks like he's playing little league baseball.

Well, he is, but he could at least wear a normal batting helmet. Those other ones make players look like E.T.

I was wondering about that myself. Perhaps it is so he can't hear any of the boos when he comes home to the Cell.

It is kind of depressing knowing that affordable 2nd basemen we're available in FA. How in the world could KW have allowed Todd Walker to go the Cubs as a back-up when we had Willie Harris penciled in as our starter? :whiner:

Todd Walker's defense is horrible, but the difference between his bat and Willie's more than makes up for the defensive difference.

This is funny. Everybody defending Harris says it's too early to judge him after 2 games, yet chastizes THE ENTIRE REST OF THE LINEUP for this ONE game. Ordonez and Lee were hitless today too, should we cut them? I mean Harris DID get on you know. And quit dissing Jimenez for his "single a game" pace; he IS doing that vs. the best staff ever don't forget.

No, they are proven. Willie Harris has only proven he can't hit major league pitching.
