Take it FWIW.... On this morning's ESPN1000 Sportscenter updates Bruce Levine has been reporting that the Sox and Cubs are talking about a Todd Walker deal. Levine's track record is less than stellar, so this might be inaccurate.

After reflecting on it for a few minutes, I think Walker could be a quality pick up for this team. Could spell Tadahito at 2B, Paulie at 1B and Carl at DH. Good LH bat, capable of doing the small things. Basically like Vizquel minus the defense.

Basically, he'll mostly spell Carl and occasionally Iguchi, so D won't be a problem. He's also some insurance against Podsednik going down again since while he doesn't have speed, he's generally been decent at getting on base, IIRC.

He's also on a short contract versus Vizquel's multiyr deal, plus he's actually cleared waivers, something I'm not sure can be said about Omar.

What this does is indicate that the other avenues are pretty much closing down: Griffey, Ibanez, etc. Because Walker's certainly not an impact guy.

This would not be a terrible pick up...while I would rather have a left side of the infield guy...walker off the bench in the playoffs would be great. In the meantime, walker could dh some game and obviously play second. He did play 60 games at 3B b/n 1996-1997 (.965 Fielding Percentage---Crede is at .973 this year and .964 for his career) so maybe he could play there? I wish Robin Ventura circa 1993 was available :(:

Who are we giving up Chris Young? Wait a second it couldn't be Young because they already have a future HOF in ... oh yeah Corey Patterson ... uh... wait a second .. no... oh yeah the cubs already the next superstar centerfielder in Felix Pie. He's a guaranteed HOF. It can't be Chris Young. I'd like Walker, he could help in many ways.

Walker is hitting .300+ which is higher than anyone on our roster. I say he would be a good fit. Definite grinder AB's. Contact hitter with a little pop.

Who would we give up? I say not Young,owens,McCarthy,anderson,sweeney, or rogaski. Anyone else -yes.

Who would he replace? Blum,Ozuna are the possibles altho if we only carry 11 pitchers then they can keep them all ,I think.

It's got to be someone fairly minor. Walker's here for 60 days max, and isn't an impact player. Think of who they got for Hollandworthless and go maybe a smidge higher.

If the price is right, why not? Walker is a good hitter, and we need some depth.

It would be culture shock for any player to walk out of the Cubs clubhouse and into ours. From what I hear, the atmosphere is a night-and-day difference.

Not a bad idea if its for a block.

Levine has popped in on Bryan Dolgin's pregame show twice to talk about this. He said there are moer teams than just the Sox interested and the Sox main concern is if Walker can play 3B, which he hasn't done since '97. Then he went on to talk about how Jim Hendry has to get quality in return because he's "not just going to trade Todd Walker for the sake of trading him." :rolleyes:

Personally, I don't care whether Walker can play 3B or not. Playing 2B, 1B, DH and PH would be valuable enough.

HotelWhiteSox
08-31-2005, 02:00 PM
This would be a great bat to add, especially if coming from the bench, that said, hopefully not to much would be given up. I remember wanting him when he was a FA, back when Willie was our starting 2B, yikes! The only thing that scares me is Ozzie will go a little R/L matchup crazy with the lineups as he does with the bullpen

Also, it wasn't just Levine, the Score reported this today, although Walker is in today's lineup.

He's strictly another LH bat. But who would he replace. Blum has value as a utility IF that can play all IF positions. Ozuna has a place as a pinch runner. Walker doesn't do either well and they don't have anyone else to pinch run. They're not going to carry 7 IF.

I agree completely. However, his bat is definitely worth looking into. As its been said before in this thread, he can back up 2b, maybe 1b and also help DH plus pinch hit. I'd rather have him pinch hitting than anyone else on the \roster

Question mods....if you dont want us using it because its "absurdly overused" why not un-tag it???

[moderator edit]

Because not everyone is cursed with such uninspired thinking for how to use the chunks tag than to respond to a post with hardly more than the chunks tag. They know it's uninspired, insipid, and childish and would never seriously complain about having a gratuitous use of the chunks tag removed from such a juvenile post.

Any other questions?

Ozuna has a place as a pinch runner. Walker doesn't do either well and they don't have anyone else to pinch run. They're not going to carry 7 IF.

He would replace McCarthy on the playoff roster. That's how you have to look at this. Right now, the playoff roster looks something like:

Pitchers (11): Buehrle, Garcia, Garland, El Duque, Contreras, Hermanson, Marte, Politte, Cotts, Jenks, Vizcaino
Hitters (13): Pierzynski, Widger, Konerko, Iguchi, Uribe, Crede, Blum, Ozuna, Podsednik, Rowand, Dye, Everett, Timo

That's 24, leaving one spot open. You only need 11 pitchers for the playoffs since at least one starter will go to the pen. So that 25th spot is going to go to a hitter. Gload and Willie are probably the only other options. Walker is more valuable than Willie and Gload apparently did something to piss off KW, so he might not be on the playoff roster. Enter Todd Walker as a guy who can possibly spell Iguchi and would be easily the best left-handed bat off the bench.

Fine..fine. I should know by now having been here for years that's how it works. I can handle it.:cool:

Anyways, back to the original thread topic...didnt mean to hijack it.

Todd Walker is a very smart player and would be a welcome addition to any team. I think he'd be great for the Indians and could end up hurting us this year and next year since he has that option in his contract.

JUribe1989
08-31-2005, 04:26 PM
If Walker is going to play third base, this is a horrendous deal. This guy has 0 range. He really offers absolutely nothing defensively. He's more than a defenseive liability. DH'ing is the only option if we were to get him IMO.

A couple of things we have to remember are that we do not have Walker yet and we have not won the World Series. I really think we have to think about making the playoffs before we talk World Series. If anyone thinks that the team we have seen for the last few weeks is a World Series champion they are sorely mistaken.

The "insider" just reported Hendry would want a top outfield prospect back for Walker

EDIT: I do not think walker is worth a top OF spec, I wonder if Borchard way be worth dealing now. I know he is a risk at 3b. But right now, can we say this team is in a spot to not take a risk. Blum and Ozuna are not the answer with Crede out. With Detroit and KC coming up, it might be a few series to see how Walker could handle the position, Crede will come back the starter, and Walker would give us what we kind of need offensively, 300 hitter left handed bat some consistency. I was a fan of him when he was with Boston. He is a gutsy ball player, a Grinder, and I think he would fit in.

I don't know why I'm reporting this because of the source, but FWIW on the Baseball Show on XM radio they just said that the Sox were close to acquiring Walker.

DH'ing is the only option if we were to get him IMO.No way Walker comes anywhere near third base. During the season, bench players need to play to spell the starters once in a while. That's not going to happen in the playoffs. Bench players are limited to pinch-hitting, pinch-running and late inning defensive replacements. Walker fills only the first of these roles. He could DH, too, since Everett sucks wind against RHP, but I don't see Ozzie benching Everett in the playoffs.

Ah, the Wes Helms rumor that sure brings me back lol. Remember when Levine used to be right all the time? I used to look to him for all my MLB information. He used to be a very reliable source.

Another deadline

Another stand pat

This time however, with a lead 7 games less then last month.

Looks like they called Kennys Bluff

I thought he reported today - around 5 pm or so - that the Giants would definitely move Jason Christiansen in the next couple of hours...well, yeah, if by next couple of hours you meant yesterday Bruce.

Levine continues to be consistent, but not in a good way. :(: Maybe the White Sox are going to acquire Walker after rosters expand simply to use him in September.

Well, it looks like the White Sox are in talks with Florida for Miguel Cabrera, who's natural position is third base, and Carlos Delgado, a powerful lefthanded bat that can help the Sox. Expect the deal to be done tonight.
