All of this discussion of the glory days from 1995-1999 brings back wonderful (terrible) memories. Didn't the Sox have a lot of random people for a season at a time during that run? Some that come to my mind are Corey Snyder and Chris Sabo. Who were other random players from that run? In retrospect, those weren't terribly fun times to be a Sox fan. I can remember the parade of terrible bullpen pitchers being run out to blow game after game. Names like Bill Simas and Matt Karchner. Anyone else with memories of that era?

I still have nightmares about Bryan Ward. Man, did that guy suck! His big thing was that he would load the bases and give up a grand slam.

Here's his crappy stats! (http://www.baseball-reference.com/w/wardbr01.shtml)

Didn't Mike Deveraux play for the Sox? My favorite name ever. I still talk about Mike Deveraux, for no good reason at all. :smile:

As for contributing to this thread.... Mike LaValliere AKA Spanky.

One of my all time favorite Sox pitchers Charlie Hough... He signed a card for me and said, "Son, that card is 20 years old!" one of my favorite quotes while getting an autograph.

Kirk McCaskill, Danny Darwin, Doug Drabek, Wil Cordero, Tony Pena, Tony Phillips and Albert Belle were all '95-'99 IIRC.

I used to like dave martinez. He would battle a pitcher and foul off pitches. All while Big Frank would sit on deck and get the pitcher's timing down. This benefitted Frank. Davey would battle.

Bill Simas, came in one game I was at vs. Cleveland in 95. Retired the 3,4,5 hitters. I will never forget his heat and hemp necklace:cool:

Hey, Matt Karchner is very memorable - we trading him to the Cubs for a young farm hand named Jon Garland! :D: :D: :D:

I think this is a few years too old but Terry Leach and Dave Steib both had illustirous Sox careers. I also have fond memories of Simas retiring the heart of Cleveland's order in '95, the apex of his career to say the least.

Isidro Marquez, a side-arming righty Lamont would bring in to give up homers to left-handed batters. He lasted about 3 weeks. Chris Clemons, Scott Eyre, Chad Kreuter, Robert Machado, Larry Thomas, Joe Magrane, Tony Castillo (great trade Schu!), Marvin Freeman, Chuck McElroy, speedster Lou Frazier, Charlie O'Brien, and of course, Liu Rodriguez, among others.

Daryl Boston, who was a bit before that time period, but that guy was suppossed to be the greatest player we'd ever see. How about Ivan Caderon ( RIP ) Barry Jones, Jim Abbott, Kirk McKaskill, Joe Magrane, Kevin Tapini, and the great Chuck McCelroy.

Is Boston still with the organization? I remember back in 2002, when most of us were afraid KW was going to hand him the manager's job if Backman didn't want it. Boy, was that a scary time.

1995... my all-time least favorite Sox player....
Relief pitcher Tim Fortugno
This guy took about 3 minutes between each pitches to adjust his gold chain(s) and mess with his greasy, semi-long hair and the neck of his jersey. And to make it worse, it seemed like every time I watched/listened to a game when he took the mound with a Sox lead, he blew it.

I used to call him Tim Fort... UG, NO!!!!!!

I can't believe nobody mentioned me yet. Thanks for signing me Schu instead of Clemens because he was damaged goods and I would sign for three years, not four.

It was 4 years/ 20 million.

Much better than wasting money on that has been Roger Clemens? Whatever happened to that guy?

Navarro has got to be one of the worst FA signings EVER. He was the worst pitcher in the AL for three straight seasons. I honestly think this signing triggered the KCP overhaul, more so than Belle's signing.

I still remember a game in which fans were putting up "1B" "BB" "2B", etc. signs along the lining of the upper deck, instead of the "K" that normally goes up for pitchers.

The FA era has forced some teams to ride out the string with some terrible players, before finally putting an end to the misery by releasing him in the final year, or trading him away. In Navarro's case, the Sox would have been better off had he simply been injured, and missed a majority of his time under contract, ala Alvarez and the Devil Rays.

Joe Hall was awesome for about six weeks before he got hurt
I can't believe no one mentioned Lorenzo Barcelo!
John Cangelosi made a brief comeback at one point.
I went to a game started by Pat Danneker.
Chad Kreuter was great too.
So was Chris Tremie.

But I'm more nostalgic for the late '80's obscure Sox players: Shawn Hillegas, John Davis, Carlos Martinez, Dave Gallagher, Jose Segura, Joe De Sa, Joe Cowley, and the forgotten man in the Baines trade, Fred Manrique.

05-28-2005, 02:13 PM
Does anybody else remember Pat Daneker? It seems like he came out of nowhere to pitch in '99 and then disappeared just as quickly. And of course my all-time favorite, Mickey, Shawn Abner.
