This is for anybody out there who might have more time on their hands than I do but who is also puzzled by that Great Mystery of the Universe # 328: Why Do Rookie Pitchers Continuously Seem to Humble the White Sox While Pale Hose Call-Ups are Massacred? Or so it seems--is this really empirically verifiable, or is it just our myopic obsession as put-upon, long-suffering White Sox fans? Yesterday seemed to just crystallize this phenomenon: the O's put in their call-up rookie and he ends up as the main hero in a 1-0 victory. We call up Diaz and they take him deep 4 times.

The challenge would have 2 parts:

1.) Somehow track Sox' records vs. rookies and call-ups since the beginning of the 2001 season;

2.) Conversely, track the records of our call-ups (a'la Cotts last year, Diaz yesterday, etc.) vs. our foes.

Enlighten us.

where can you find player boxscores for any year?

it seems to me wilson alverez pitched a nohitter in his 1st sox game, tho it may have been 2nd or 3rd.
