There are two things that I'll always remember about this loser:

1) Seeing him in his Porche on the Dan Ryan, literally two minutes after a game had ended

2) Watching him say **** during an interview with Gail Fischer the night before we clinched the division in 2000.

And who could forget his subversive Sun-Times blog he had going for a while in 2000? That was pretty :puking:

I wonder how much you can get for that on the ebay?

Probably not any money. More like an even exchange: A Parque card for firewood or a gas can. :D:

He stood up for his team in that Detroit fight though.

Best minor league pitcher on the 2000 White Sox. And the most guaranteed loser in second half ball games.

Did he lead the WS in simulated game victories?

I seem to remember him putting in a pretty gutzy performance in the 2000 playoffs. Am I wrong?

I remember when he had a column in the sun times where it was like his diary and he was detailing on how he couldnt sleep before a game and had a nasty zit on his back or face

I don't remember him being trouble. The Sox treated him pretty raw from what I remember about the ordeal.

I dont understand the hatred for him .............
he played hard and was really frustrated when he hurt himself.
Ive got nothing bad to say about him ................

No, you're not. He was rolling in game 1, and had Manuel not taken him out it seemed like the Sox might have won the first playoff game in 2000.

What I'll always remember is Jim, after hitting a Detroit player, throwing down his glove and basically saying "C'mon!". The brawl that ensued is legendary.

I agree with the others who feel Parque isn't getting the respect he deserves in this thread. He was a #1 sandwich pick we got for losing Alex Fernandez and in just a couple of years he was making significant contributions. He probably would have won Game 1 of the ALDS if Captain Hook didn't pull him with the lead -- which Gas Can Howry promptly lost, walking the leadoff man!

Then another of Manuel's genius moves backfired, letting Josh "Versatile" Paul catch the tenth inning in a tied game. Piniella could see Paul tipping pitch outs, told his baserunner Cameron, who promptly stole second, and scored the winning run. Thank God Mike Scioscia was too stupid to know what Piniella and every Sox Fan already knew last October: Josh Paul is no kind of big league catcher.

Parque, Sirotka, and Baldwin all wound up with serious arm injuries in 2001. They got those injuries pitching their hearts out for the Sox in 2000, and if ANY of our vaunted hitters had shown up in October the way these three did, maybe the Sox reach championship paydirt five years earlier.

Show some respect for these three. It's not their fault our manager was a dope and the hitters went AWOL.

Picking on the crafty little lefthander ... shame on all of you.

As Britt Burns said in 1983 after the Sox clinched the Div ... "This feels Mo Better"
