Anyone remember Rob Dibble from Baseball Tonight playing for the Sox back in 95? He only had 14.1 innings pitched, and went 0-1 with a 6.28 ERA.

Anyone remember Rob Dibble from Baseball Tonight playing for the Sox back in 95? He only had 14.1 innings pitched, and went 0-1 with a 6.28 ERA.I remember it extremely well. I was 7 years old. My dad took me to a game against Oakland. There was a rain delay, it was cold, we sat in the upper deck behind home plate. My dad was listening to the game on the radio on his headphones for some reason. It was either that or the Blackhawks were in the playoffs and he was listening for updates. When Dibble came into the game, someone said "We'd better be careful; he's liable to throw one up here," citing his tendency toward wildness. Please, please do not ask me why I remember so many details about that entirely unspectacular and unmemorable game. I don't know why. Some games just etch themselves into my head forever, but usually for a reason.

Another one is Kevin Tapani's two hit CG shutout of the Brewers in about '96 or '97 in which the Sox hit 4 HRs in 1 inning. Chad Kreuter was the catcher that day. Ventura hit one of the HRs.

Another is the one and only time I ever sat in the club level, it was with my aunt and cousin, against Toronto, they gave away plastic coin banks shaped like Sox helmets. Roberto Alomar had the game winning hit for Toronto.

Opening Day 1993 vs. the Twins got rained out. The schedule that was printed in the newspaper for that year listed the home games in white and the road games in blue. I had it taped to my dresser, and my dad wrote in the result of each game in the tiny little boxes.

I'm done now. There are more, but I don't wanna type anymore; it's too late.

Didn't Dibble hit a Brewer and start a brawl with them that year? I think that was the end of his Sox career.

He was a feared closer with Cincy. Him and Charlton (and someone else I think) made up one hell of a bullpen.

You're evidently too young to remember Don Mossi.

Then of course there's this buffoon: :nandrolone

But yeah, I remember too well Ron Dibble's short stint with the Sox. I remember how I had high hopes (silly me) that he'd regain his old form. When he was good, he was GOOD. When he was with the Sox, he was not.

I know this is recent (within the last 14 years),but the quartet of Dan Pasqua,Cory Snyder,Jaimie Navarro and Carlos Castillo, well,to quote "SNL" cheerleaders Craig (Will Ferrell) and Arianna (Cheri Oteri):

"U-G-L-Y you ain't got no alibi,you're ugly,hey hey,you're ugly.WOOOOO!!"

I remember Dibble in a Sox uniform but nothing of what he did. I just wonder why this dope is on national TV.

The other guy was Randy Myers- they were the Nasty Boys back in 1990.

Danny Tartabull was NOT with the Sox in 1995. The Sox got him for the 1996 season and he responded...27 home runs, 100 RBI's.

The other 'top replacements' the Sox got for the 1995 team that was gutted by ownership because they had to 'recoop' financial losses caused by the 94 labor impasse included such 'stars' as Chris Sabo, Dave Righetti and Jim Abbott.

What a joke.

Most of that damage was done in the last month and a half of the season, IIRC. He was brutal for the first two months of the season.

I remember he was in line to be on the replacement squad for the White Sox, along with Pete Rose Jr. and Oil Can Boyd. I remember one analyst saying that if the scabs were allowed to play in the regular season, the White Sox would have probably had the best replacement team in baseball. This guy also mentioned that Kevin Maas could probably hit 80 homeruns that year.

I remember seeing a couple appearances by him. I think he's hilarious on the Dan Patrick show.

Hey, he can't be that bad, he cut a promo for ESPN 1000 that I heard on the pregame today, where he said. "Unlike those northsiders, the Sox play at night, so you can listen to the Dan Patrick show..." :smile:

Let's just say my dad has quite a baseball card collection.

LipI was just naming washed up, once-good players that Schueler acquired for "pennant runs" in the mid 90's, not necessarily 95.
Then there was Atlee Hammaker, the only man ever to give up a grand slam in an all-star game (to Fred Lynn).
