Since im gettin annoyed with the constant threads\talk creation about rowand and all the other sox players who were with the team last year, i thought this would help

Also prevents the need for makin another thread for other sox players

My note for this thread: Im amazed because carl everett just hit a 2 run bomb in his two strike protection swing

Wow, hernandez off to a good start, nice to see he seems to be in good health but he did start last season strong as well

how was his batting?

Sad numbers from two of my favorite former Sox.

Thomas is down to .091 for Oakland. I guess he's not legging out many infield hits. If he doesn't get that average up soon, he'll be a pinch hitter for the rest of his career. :(:

Rowand is batting .222 for Philly. I can already envision us reacquiring him at the deadline. :cool:

Just saw A-Row come up with a man on second and no outs against Atlanta. He tried to bunt and popped out to the pitcher. Some things never change. A-Row just can't get a bunt down to save his life.

One good game boosts an average quickly at this time of year. Aside from that crappy bunt, Rowand had a good game tonight. Further evidence that he should be allowed to swing away at all times, as I frequently contended when he was a member of the White Sox.

A-Row = horrible bunter

Borchard scored a run tonight against Cleveland, pinch running for Everett. Technically, that makes Borchard the DH, but as it is 9-5 M's in the 9th in Cleveland, Borchard probably won't have a chance to hit.

Right now I think Borchard is second in batting average among last-year-Sox hitters. He is behind Rowand but ahead of Everett and Thomas. I have no idea what Timo is doing.

I just watched Jeremy Reed on "In Their Own Words" on FSN. They asked him about the trade. He didn't really say much other than it shocked him and he found out on the team bus when someone on the team told him. He said it was a pain to move out west but that his family is out here so it was good. He was also happy b/c he knew he would be a starter alot sooner than in Chicago.

The guys doing Sportscenter posed an interesting question when showing a clip of Frank's home run last night. Is it still appropriate to say, "You can put it on the board" when the big man goes deep? Obviously, I don't expect Hawk to say this, as Frank plays for the "bad guys," but does anyone find themselves saying this anyway?

High chair? :?:

Since Thome is fast approaching 500 HR's and has been performing at this level (when healthy) for about a decade....I'm pretty sure it's not a fluke. Is there something wrong with being excited about a guy who will be our best DH since Frank's monster year in 2000? It's not a shot at Everett or Frank...but if either of them were our DH this year and getting off to the kind of start they are having with their new teams...it would be killing us. Thome was carrying us for the first 1-2 weeks of the season.

I will not proclaim this to be a miracle return season till it prolongs itself. Yes thome is an amazing athlete but thats just like sayin pujols is gonna hit 70 because how hot he's started or chris shelton or get super excited cuz the mets are currently 9-2. I refuse to get hopes up till its proven and further in the season. Also you cannot make a comparison of "oh thomas sucks in oakland, he'd be hurting us" because batting in oakland is diff than battin at comiskey or any park, some players play well in one stadium, and dont in others. By assuming the greatness of Thome, do you then say podsednik is gonna be crappy this season cuz he's gotten a very slow start? You cant pick and choose who u wanan look at and say they will do good

My assumption of greatness for Thome is based on:

1751 games played
5960 AB's
437 HR's
1206 RBI's
.282 Avg.

I didn't say Thomas sucked....I said I prefer Thome over Thomas because he's a LH stick....and his fast start really helped the team when the other hitters and the pitchers were struggling. I don't see how the stadium Thomas plays in effects his batting avg....and the park has become somewhat of a launching pad since the addition of the upper deck for football in the outfield.
If he can't hit well in Oakland...he's in for a long season.

Best of luck to Frank and Carl....we're better off with Thome (barring injuries).

2/5, 1 2B, 1 K and 1 R scored in a 7-6 win over Washington. Jimmy Rollins was 0/5, else Rowand would have some RBIs there as well. Season average: .345
He'll most likely have a year closer to 2004 than 2005 offensively, especially in that ballpark.

Carl Everett just hit a walkoff 3-run HR off of CJ Wilson to win the game for Seattle, thereby:

1) Ruining my fantasy allstar Kevin Millwood's chance at a W
2) Ruining my fantasy allstar Francisco Cordero's save op.
3) Ruining my fantasy allstar Francisco Cordero's record and ERA (10.50)

Carl was 2/5 today, and his HR capped off a 5 run ninth for Seattle, who won it 9-6

Loaiza is awful. I've listened to a few of the A's games to keep tabs on Big Frank, and every start by Esteban is a disaster "from the word go."

The A's must be gearing up for another big second half run, because that's what it will take for them to win the the division with Orange County to contend with.

Credit KW for seeing Loaiza coming back down to earth from his career year and being able to deal him for Jose Contreras. Is that trade looking like a total steal right now or what?

By the way, am I remembering correctly that many experts were picking the A's to be the best in the AL because they got Loaiza and Thomas?
