He's now elevated himself to the list of Sox legends. The late inning hits and guts. The post season heroics. He's clutch, clutch, clutch.

I have a feeling my 3 month old, 7 member "Joe Crede is my Hero" fan club on MySpace will get a few more members now!

Well that last rbi clearly didn't count since it was only b/c of Kennedy's crappy throw.

YES!
Crede is the hero of the ALCS. If he doesn't get that hit up the middle off K-Rod we are coming back to Chicago for Game 6.
Instead we are coming back for GAME 1!

GOD THIS FEELS GREAT

shoota overreacting to a bad Crede game in June:

These are the types of games we're going to play in the playoffs...We need a hitter who can give tough at bats and has a better chance of helping the offense, because in the playoffs/close games, that's how you win.

I'm looking at today's game as a typical Crede game against playoff-type pitching in close games. Not saying he was the sole reason the Sox lost today. But it is typical Crede in this type of game, and IS reason enough to replace him.

Shoota, shoota, shoota...you never really got it, did you? Well, I just hope wherever you are you are celebrating and eating crow by the barrel.

Crede throwing away at-bats in the playoffs... LOL!

Joe Crede, he may have 500 painful AB's a year but the others are full of 20 HR's a year, CLUTCH hits, and on defense he is as good as they come.

Please explain.

A single career year does not a legend make. His offense, though great in the postseason, was a lackluster .252 for the season. Big D though, of which I am very appreciative. Not the stuff of legends, but a good year and a great postseason none the less.

We're not talking about HOF type legends here, but Sox legends. What is a legend? Someone who does something so remarkable, so significant, that you remember it for ever. Who cares about the rest of the world? To Sox fans, Joe Crede is a legend because in two games he did something that we will all remember forever.

Thank you Joe! May you never be traded ever!!!!

If Scott Brosius is a Yankee legend, Joe Crede's a White Sox legend.

Karno's got it right. Crede may or may not end up a Sox legend, but right now he's an Angels legend. Right up there with David Henderson. Or Tito Landrum, to put him into a Sox context.

NEMESIS

Joe Buck aptly deemed Crede as escobar's nemesis. Even when Mike changed escobar for Krod, it didn't matter.

When he came back from the injury, he was smoking the ball. (.379 in Sept) and has not stopped

ALCS : .368!

Personally, I never understood why they were considered "legends." I can only assume that it arose from Red Sux Nation and the East Coast medias insistance on some ridiculous curse that prevented the Red Sox from winning a World Series.

We're not talking about HOF type legends here, but Sox legends. What is a legend? Someone who does something so remarkable, so significant, that you remember it for ever.

If legends are the stuff of series, then A.J. deserves the title hands down. No one altered the course of this series more than he did. He got all the calls, and kept us in the game.

By the way, keep in mind that if you want to retain Joe Crede, you're gonna have to make a deal with this guy.

I've ripped Joe Crede incessantly in the past, but I can't say enough good about what he's done since coming off the Disabled List in September.

The team's success is more important than me being right about Crede, and I often used Crede as a scapegoat for the team's failures, but I can't anymore and glad I don't have the option. Not only are the White Sox a success, but Joe Crede has been a big contributer to that success.

So from his biggest critic, Way to Go, Joe!

When they put Joe's picture on the outfield wall, they should have his name typeset exactly like this:


JOE! CREDE!!

Coming from a completely biased fan's opinion, yes, yes he is!
Fantastic defense, two great grabs last night and the night before (which Joe, "my last name rhymes with Buck" and McCarver didn't even talk about), and CLUTCH hitting.
WAY TO GO JOE!!!!

One radio show in Chicago has described Joe Crede as either being the goat or the hero depending on the game. I know that in the past he has bared the brunt of criticism from many Sox fans. Some have eevn been counting the days till Josh Fields the minor league third base prospect will take over. ... BUT in my oppinion as a Sox fan I have always appreciated Joe Crede and the amazing defense he brings to the park night in and night out. No one deserves this legend label more than Joe Crede on our team.
Yes, Joe Crede is a Whiet Sox LEGEND!!!!

Yes, Joe is a certified legend. When you consider what he did this year with two herniated discs in his back you have to tip your hat to him. He is a sept player historically and would have been an october player if we had ever gotten to the playoffs with him.

We need to lock him up - reminds me of Craig Nettles of the Yanks- not overwhelming regular season stats but a great glove and a tough playoff hitter.

He is only 27- with a healthy back he will continue to mature as a hitter and is the answer at the hot box.

This is whats great about October baseball. You never know when somebody like Joe Crede or Francisco Cabrera will live in postseason lore.

This team does not have 1 legend. It is a true team with the whole being much greater then its parts. The legendary team of '05 who brought home the pennant, and hopefully a world championship! Joe is a strong part of the legendary team!

10-17-2005, 03:59 PM
Yes...no matter what he hit during the season, he's forever in our memories and hearts. JOE.............CREDE!!!!!

I got my Crede jersey shirt at grandstand last night with my AL Pennant shirt and will proudly wear them both!

"Hey, he's a Sox Legend! He deserves to be properly compensated for it."

I got an idea! Why not send your comments about Crede over to him in the hopes that you can convince him his client is an under-average 3B who deserves no more than $750k per season?

But you should definitley not use these points to try and convince him:


His 2005 postseason numbers equal those of ALCS MVP Paul Konerko.
Drove in the tying and winning runs in Game 5 of ALCS.
w/RISP during the 2005 regular season he batted .286 and had 42 RBIs
