He definitely an interesting guy out of the pen. Lefties had a hard time with him. I think he was hurt and the Sox cut ties because he couldn't get his velocity back. I miss him; I like our current bullpen now though (2 games notwithstanding.)

If you listen to the anti-KW guys 'round here they'll tell you Kelly Wunsch was the victim of being the Sox's MLBPA rep and how he ran over KW's dog and bla bla bla.

They probably won't tell you that Kelly Wunsch now sucks.

I'd like to extend a warm WSI welcome to Kelly's biggest fan, Harry Teinowitz.

I was excited to see Kelly warming up in the bullpen for Los Angeles (Dodgers) a couple nights ago on espn. He was very consistent throughout the years he was with the chisox.

He's coming out of the 'pen for the Dodgers and so far has been pretty decent. I always liked Kelly and I wish him the best even though the Sox organization couldn't seem to find a use for him (for whatever reason(s)).

The conspiracy theory over player reps may be true, wasnt ben davis also the player rep for the sox and now he's gone? Who is the player rep now for the team? Can we as fans elect crede as the player rep so he can get released as well?

I still remember the energy when sosa K'd 4 times against the sox and Wunsch was one of em.

I would take Kelly over Neal "I can only throw my fastball for a strike" Cotts any day of the week.

I sincerely hope it isn't true that Player Reps are to the Sox as Drummers are to Spinal Tap...

IIRC Buerhle is now the Sox player rep (by default) since KW traded away KW (if you follow me).

How does he look so far for the Dodgers? I ran into him at the arch a few yers ago and he gladly signed my ball and took a pic with me. I liked Kelly too. I used to love watch him slowly jog in from the pen like he didn't hvae a care in the world. He seemed to be cherishing every moment he had in the bigs. Terry Mullholland on the other hand...when I watch him during batting practice he's always alone and looks like he'd rather be doing something else...just an observation...

oh would you? what was it about Kelly's lack of production in our minor league system the last 2 years that makes you say that? Because he was good for us in the past?

Let's look up Jim Parque, see if we can plug him into the rotation. Even better, Cal Eldred, Jason Bere, see what those fellas are up to.

I bet Wilson Alvarez could be had on the cheap.

Why on earth do we still see this crap on Wunsch. I can kind of see regretting the loss of Bradford or Kip Wells or something, but Wunsch?

This Wunsch love is the product of the fact that he is a nice guy combined with the tendency to overvalue some of the players that have been with your team.

Why would management care about that?

Agreed 100%. The guy could only pitch twice a week for Charlotte last year, which is not good when you're a lefty specialist.

But i believe the management and even ozzie agreed to it because they wanted mandatory testing to be done to make the market fair, i dont think the roid testing woulda been a factor.
