Just in time! Placed on the 15 day DL with a bulging disc in his upper back.

The official WSI line is to refrain from rejoicing in an opposing team's injuries, but I'm not going to miss seeing Sweeney light up the Sox this weekend. If I knew how to start a poll, I might ask who is the biggest Sox killer over the last ten years: Mike Sweeney, Jim Thome, Travis Hafner, Johan Santana, etc. My guess is Sweeney would edge out Santana, or vice versa.

Sounds like you need to start a poll. Sweeney would have my vote.

I think Sweeney would win by a landslide.

Someone that knows how is welcome to do so. I never bothered to learn!:redneck

And feel free to add any names I forgot...like Brad Lidge or Kelvim Escobar.

I never cheer injuries but as a White Sox killer, I will not miss seeing him in the lineup this weekend!

Hey, you don't have to rejoice an injury to be glad the guy won't be there. I think Mike Sweeney has single handedly beat the Sox 10 times over the last few years as I recall. This is especially good news because we have 3 games with KC coming up, and without Sweeney, they aren't even pathetic any more.

Now it's offical. The Royals will be the worst team in MLB history.

Somebody bookmark this post for 9/30. I know I'll be right

I'm not going to bet against it, that is for sure. The Royal Tankenbombs are 0-12 on the road.

But they added veterans to stunt the progression of their young players so that they could break the 65 win threshold. Say it ain't so!

Think they can beat the 1899 Cleveland Spiders 20-134 record?

Hey, the Royals right now are on pace to only notch 34 wins.

What's the "modern" (since 1900) record for fewest wins in a season? Is it the 1962 Mets (40-120, I think)?

Yeah, I think that's it. I think they started out 0-10, and got their first win against the Pirates, who were 10-0.

I would place him in the dubious spot as #1 Sox killer as well. Rusty Greer would be in second, IMO. Although his career was short, that guy just chucked dagger after dagger w/ Texas.

Get well Sweeny, and I hope you get traded to a good team ...in the National league.

Just don't trade him to the Cubs -- I'd hate to have to face him six times a year!*





*Obvious (I hope) reference to all the idiot Flubs fans who rejoiced when CLee was traded away from the Sox - to a team in their own division!

Guys like Sweeney, Thome and Santana have been Sox killers, but they're pretty damn good players. It's not like they don't kill anyone else. The guys that would drive me nuts are the journeyman types who would just murder us every time out. Guys like Joe Randa and Bobby Frikkin' Higgenson.:o:

I bet he still finds a way to homer off of Politte in the 8th this weekend. :(:

Yes, but if you were to stretch Sweeney's numbers against the Sox over a 162-game season, he'd be getting his own private wing in the HOF.

Extrapolate them over a 12-15 year career, and Cooperstown would have to be re-named "Sweeneyville."

However, I do know what you mean when you mention these Higginson-esque do-nothings who seem to have a special talent for hurting us. Bobby Kielty comes to mind as a player whose mystical Sox-killing powers have spanned three teams: first the Twins, then the Blue Jays, and last year with the Athletics. And didn't Ronnie Belly-Lard have twelve homers in 2004, six of which came against the White Sox?
