View Full Version : Sox pitchers batting

With 9 games in the next 2 1/2 weeks in NL parks, the Sox pitchers will once again get the opportunity to take some hacks at the plate. Looks like last year they were 3-21 (.143). With Thome on the bench, that means our 7, 8, 9, and 1 guy together are relatively weak (Uribe .204, Anderson .165, pitcher .143, and Pods .247). Looks like everyone is going to have to step it up a little.

Considering the Sox have faced tougher competition in the AL than they would in the NL, I'm not the least bit worried.

Imagine the fans' reaction if/when Sox pitchers have a higher BA than BA after interleague play is done. (Note: no teal)

remember last year when Cliff squared to bunt, then chopped it past the draw in 2nd basemen. Hysterical

That hit kicked ass.

Hopefully Uribe breaks out after yesterdays performance and it makes being DHless more tolerable.

Can we get a spell-checker in here?

Then the rightfielder proceeded to throw the ball and it hit the umpire at second base. What a great series that was in Colorado. :cool:

Cliff was the only Sox player to hit 1.000 last year. Too bad he is on the DL (half teal).

What are the odds of our pitchers having a better combined batting average than Uribe and Anderson?:D:

That was my favorite series of the year, just because of all the oddness, and the quirky pitchers-paradise Coors Field.

Speaking of Sox pitchers hitting, can we bring Ken Brett out of retirement?

This always gives me the opportunity to post a favorite trivia question.

Two pitchers and two pitchers alone in the World Series have gotten as well as they gave in a game. That is, they had as many hits in the complete game as the entire opposition team did for the whole game. One of these pitchers was Orel Hershiser with the Dodgers who 3-hit the Oakland A's of McGwire and Canseco and LaRussa in game two of the 1988 World Series. Hershiser went 3-3 that day.

Who was the other pitcher who got as well as he gave and what did he do?

I'll say Don Larsen the day he threw his no hitter.

ken Holtzman with the A's - He had a hr and I think 3 or 4 hits. I don't know how many hits he gave up though.

Perfect game Chez. He was 0-2 with a pair of sacrifices.
