I got one. One of my favorite mid-90's outfielders Joe "Do It All" Hall is working in the Sox minor league system now. I heard Hawk mention him in one of the spring telecasts a week or two ago. Anyone remember what he said?

Didn't Scott Radinsky also have a band? Maybe he's still playing in the band. I remember reading a story about Rads riding his bike to Comiskey Park when he was a rookie.

Here are a few I know

Eldred retired after last season
Aaron Miles is now the Cardinals starting second baseman.
Greg Norton is in the Tampa system right now. Didn't make the team this spring.
D'Angelo Jimenez is on the Texas Rangers in I believe a utility man position.
Julio Ramirez is in the mets minor league system
Chad Bradford is a Met.
Ginter is a minor leaguer in the Red Sox system
Rauch made the Nationals Opening day roster
I think Diaz went to Japan.
Baldwin failed to make the Blue jays roster this spring.
Mark Johnson is a Brewers Minor leaguer
Saenz I think is still on the Dodgers

I think most of those guys are out of baseball now

I see that Rick White is still hanging around, and pitching against the Cubbies....

Made me think of Antonio Osuna for some reason...and how can Royce Clayton still be in MLB? He keeps getting chance after chance....same with Kenny Lofton.

Guess Mike Morse was sent down and they kept Joe B.

Lofton has shown he can be of great help to teams half seasons at a time. Forget what team is is on now but he was dl'd april 1

Joe's a minor league coach and was at Sox fantasy camp in 2004. Biddle I think retired after yet another surgury.

Yes. I believe they were called Stickfigure. I also remember an SI article saying that some years ago he rode his bike from a season ending series in Seattle home to LA. Not sure what he's up to now, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's music related.

i always wondered what happened to felix diaz too. He had that spot start (2-3 years ago?) or two and was billed as a promising young pitcher for the sox that didn't go well and i figured we'd see him in spring training next year and the guy just fell off the face of the earther as far as i'm concerned.

What about Scott Sullivan? I know he was hurt with the Royals last season...but I haven't heard anything since.

Radinsky was the vocalist for Pulley.

Stickfigure is the name of Jack McDowell's band and label.

Lorenzo Barcelo

I don't know where he is now but I checked his player page through the chicagosports site and they have him listed as retired. He hasn't pitched in a major league organization since 2003 when he pitched in 20 games for AAA Fresno.

I believe he retired after not bouncing back from arm surgery.

Any Ken Vining or Dave Sanders sightings? Mike Caruso was with the Royals a couple of seasons ago for a cup of coffee...not sure where he is now.

I'm pretty sure Sirotka is out of baseball. The last I heard his name, he was working out with the Cubs in Spring of '03? Didn't earn a roster spot and once again dropped off the face of the Earth.

One of my favs.

Yeah Radinsky is in a punk band called Pulley, and has been for something like 10 years. Good band too.
