View Full Version : Kenny Rogers

Going back in time to last year's offseason when some of us pushed hard for signing Kenny Rogers as the 5th starter after Boras terribly overestimated the market for his client and Kenny was just hanging around with no job....and were vehemently opposed on these boards because signing him would hamper the development of our youngsters like Wright & Rauch:

In hindsight, boy that sure would have sucked having a crafty left-handed, multiple gold-glove winning pitcher with a no-hitter to his credit, and who's not afraid to teach the youngsters some tricks of the trade, huh?

PS - The Rangers will be shopping him when they collapse by the All-Star break - he can be had for a couple mid-level prospects. I think this would be a good, cheap opportunity for a starter who can help in the stretch run.

He'd be good to have on our side. He was 13-8 with a 4.57 with the Twinkies last year. Way better than whatever the Sox' 5th starter stats came out to.

DJ mentioned yesterday that he had a no-hitter to his credit. Which he does, but it was also a perfect game.
