If you could add a baseball movie character to the White Sox roster, who would it be. Keep in mind that the baseball character must be a fictional one.

Great leadoff hitter, can steal bases and make some great plays in the outfield.

Willie "Mays" Hayes. We could use a CF who can swipe 100 bags and bat leadoff.

Ed (The monkey for those who don't know)

Stan Ross and T-Rex Pennebaker

To help with the coaching staff I suggest Jimmy Dugan, I could see him and Ozzie getting along well together especially with Wendelstedt. "anybody ever tell you you look like a ***** with that little hat on?"

Steve Nebraska- Can fill in at DH when he's not pitching. What team doesn't need a power, switch hitting, no. 1 pitcher?

Coach Buttermaker- must have

Jim Bowers- Water balloon expert. That has to be good for something

'Bender's Big Score' is the first installment of four Futurama movies. Then aired on Comedy Central as episodes. They will be....
"reconfiguring them and writing new material and narration and this that and the other so that they'll stand on their own as episodes." -Groening

Rumor has it, they will actually be making a full season of episodes not using the movies, but that is unconfirmed, and largely based on hope,IMO.

You could tell that guy was on steroids.

Anyway, I'd have to pick Kit "Hit or Die" Keasey, another player who "played" for the Sox in Angels in the Outfield. He was mentioned as the league's RBI leader.

Yep, I agree 100% as he would provide even more power from the right side with 42 HRs. But then, what would happen to Toby Hall as AJP would probably be on the bench?

Blah I went to the filming of that at Wrigley (you can see my dad is a bright ND long sleeve polo in one scene) and the damned kid couldnt even catch a ball much less throw it. I remember somebody threw him a ball it bounced off the mound and hit the kid in the head which in turn brought a round of raucous laughter from us "fans" who proceeded to heckle him. At least I got a free roll of bubble tape for my participation.

He ended up getting a sac fly when he went back to the field in Iowa though. Granted it wasn't in the majors, but he still got the job done when his team needed it.

I'd go Roy Hobbs though.

For the Record I vote Steve Nebraska. He may be a little nuts, but with how we value power pitching, 27 up 27 down 27 ks all strikes all over 105 mph, yah, he will do. Especially when he allows Thome to DH for Uribe because he also will go 3-3 with 3 jacks. The only thing would be keeping ozzie from trying to make him a reliever
