Default Conor's Big Chance

I am rooting hard to Conor to " Make a Impact" and nail down at least a platoon at third, often a lack of talent over the years.

Apologies for anyone I missed.

The pantheon of "great" sox 3rd baggers I can remember in the hot corner:

1. Ventura
2. Melton
3. Ward
4. Eric Soderholm
4. Crede
5. Herbert Perry
6. Youklis
7. Gillaspie??
8. Tim Hulett
9. Geogg Blum
10. Bill Stein
11. Chris Snopeck


Conor still has a chance to move into 4th place, he is young. Go Conor you can do it.

That is a pretty condemning testament to the Sox' issues at third.

How about Gillaspie winning 3rd and Kippinger taking over at 2nd? I dont see Kippinger being a platoon player with the contract he got.

Kevin Bell anyone?????

Jim Morrison, Luis Salazar, Vance Law, Wayne Tolleson, and Eddie Williams also come to mind as former Sox 3rd basemen.

Of the ones I got to see personally, sadly it's probably-
1. Ventura
2. Crede
3. Perry

That's bad.

Saw them all, I still wonder how good Ward and Melton could have been without their injuries curtailing their careers.

Crede was better than Soderholm.

I don't think the Sox have a particularly miserable history at the hot corner compared to any other franchise. Fewer third baseman are in the HOF than any other position. The combination of skills desired at that position is rare.

I should remember this name but I don't. Hawk traded him to Pittsburgh for the pitcher who nearly lost 20 games the year before. He played most of his career in LF IIRC, but for a while he was 3B with the Sox (again, IIRC).

I know it's before any of us were born, but I hear Buck Weaver was pretty good.
