Which player will be most likely to help make us forget the player(s) who formerly wore their jersey number?

1.) Jermaine Dye and his new #23 formerly displayed with Sox pride on the back of Robin Ventura?

2.) Tadahito Iguchi and his new #15 that once not so long ago housed Sandy Alomar Jr. (and of course much longer ago played the horses with the inimitable Dick Allen)

3.) Orlando Hernandez and his new #26, once owned by Ellis Burks.

4.) Scott Podsednik and his new #22, the old Josey V. numeric icon.

5.) Luis Vizcaino and his new #51, once worn by a much taller Jon Rauch.

6.) A.J. Pierzynski and his new #12, once worn by the immortal Chris Singleton and Jorge Fabregas.

7.) Dustin Hermanson and his new #32, once sported so nattily by the Young Alex Fernandez.

Alex Schnellius and I are going to go with Jermaine Dye. I think he has the most potential out of any of the new hires to enjoy an all-star type season. He could also be out by the All-Star break, which is the scary part. But for now, Dye is my pick.

Sandy was a great player and a great man. I hope he comes back to the Sox in a coaching role.

Dye could be the second coming of Christ and most here wouldn't forget about Robin Ventura.

Scotty Po could make me forget about Jose REAL quick when he steals about 15 bases in April.

Jose's real underrated on these boards. Behind the Big Hurt's monster year, and the collective season Sirotka, Eldred, Baldwin, and Parque put up, he was the most important piece to that glorious, glorious summer.

I hope Podsednik's the man, but you can't forget the 'stache.

As far as I'm concerned, aside from Robin's 23, I could care less about the rest of the guys or the number they wear. If all that had to be done was activate all retired numbers to get a World Series title, I'd be for it in a heartbeat! Unlike the Flubs, who have a few players in recent memory ( for folks over 35 or so ) who played their entire career for the losingest franchise in pro sports, the Sox haven't had players do that in the last thirty years or so. Thomas would be the first, if he lasts. I have little attachtment to numbers, aside from 3, and to a lesser extent, 72. So many Sox greats only spent a part of their career here. I really think JR wants to change that. He wants Thomas to be a Sox for life. Not that that's a bad thing, if it's done for the right reasons. Some of my favorites, whose numbers I don't remember: Zisk ( a fellow Polski ), Soderholm, Gamble, Garr, Forster ( another guy with buffet issues ), Kevin Bell, ( what coulda been ), Luzinski, the Laws, Kitty, Blaxckjack......this is what happens when you drink after working a double and then some..............

Valenstache's numbers in 2000 (http://losangeles.dodgers.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/stats/mlb_individual_stats_player.jsp?playerID=123610&statType=1)
.273 AVG
.343 OBP
.491 SLG
.834 OPS
25 HR
92 RBI
19 SB

Wow, we really robbed the Brewers in that trade. Jose Valentin and Cal Eldred for Jaime Navarro and John Snyder? :tongue:

Unfortunately, it's 5 years later and Jose has become a one-sided, swing-for-the-fences type of player in his old age. But that season was pretty damn incredible.

Going with my 'Pick to Click' here- Pierzynski. He's going to be a fan favorite by year's end.....

Didn't Roberto Alomar also wear #12? That's my pick.

Me too. Not to say I don't think Dye will have a great season. I'm excited about several players on the list, but forget Robin? Not yet. Give me a few more years. (decades?)

I've said it before and I'll say it again. #22 will always belong to the illustrious Joel Skinner, and #12 to "Psycho" Steve Lyons. No one else should ever wear those jersey #'s again.

But that season was pretty damn incredible.Those are fine numbers, but "absolute STUD?" He wasn't even the best shortstop that year - A-Rod, Nomar, Jeter, and Tejada all put up better numbers. Good trade, sure, and he was a key player in the season, but those numbers don't really tell me stud.

To me all will be forgotten except for 22 & 23. It's hard to forget Ventura who was one of the best 3rd basemen we've had in a while. And Valentin not because he was the best but because of his fire and no quit attitude. I remember watching a game in Oakland last year where Valentine struck out three times then hit a homer in the late innings to tie the game.

And Richie Zisk too, for whoever mentioned him earlier. And the late Ivan Calderon as well, if my memory is correct.

That was a hell of a game. I wish we could have pulled off that win. Wasn't it a Thursday or Friday night? We ended up losing, and things started to unravel rather quickly.

3.) Orlando Hernandez and his new #26, once owned by Ellis Burks.


What about Chris Snopek???
