So does Shingo. The White Sox went on to win the World Series without Shingo Takatsu, who saved the opening day 1-0 win but pitched his last White Sox game on July 16. Frank Thomas' last-ever White Sox game was on July 20, 2005. They won the World Series without Thomas who had reached base just six times in his last 30 White Sox plate appearances.
The fact that so many here were so excited about Dunn signing a financial-black-hole contract when some of us could see he would be an offensive black hole makes it easy for me to dismiss the senseless anger over what isn't a bad and could be a very good baseball signing.
