Exactly. So far, he's been better than Swisher. He'll actually get a chance to prove that he can play.

Post DLS Elbow Surgery

DLS had ligament replacement surgery this week (bottom of page). Wasn't he supposed to be in the Hall of Fame by now? Maybe Kenny didn't get robbed after all.

There's already a thread on this. http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/v...d.php?t=101732

Also leads off with HoF snark. Not sure I understand the joy at young people undergoing surgery, but it sure is popular.

Absolutely no joy about young people undergoing surgery. Snark directed solely at armchair GMs who think they can evaluate players better than real GMs.

I don't know how my search missed that, other than he used Tommy John in place of ligament.

Wow. You may have just broken Bafia's record for exclamation marks in a post!

I'm sure he's not.

At WSI, if someone is struggling, they either a)suck or b)are washed up. Don't you know that Konerko is declining everyday, and Thome's career is finished? Swisher probably belongs in Charlotte.

OTOH, there's guys like Joe Crede and Brian Anderson (these guys are like Rowand, Aaron) who people will defend to the death, and sometimes for no apparent reason.

Why don't people say that about the GREAT Billy Beane? Mulder been hurt after he was traded. Hudson has been hurt but has pitched well. And clearly something is wrong with Zito.

HMMMMMMMMMM

Agreed. The HOF joke was old two months ago. Let it go. It's not funny.

I'd sooner give DLS a spot in our lineup right now than Swisher.

All I ask is can he lay down a bunt?

It's more like amusement at a certain poster claiming the Swisher trade was a disaster because we lost DLS, a player who BA projected as a 3rd starter in 2010

Is it possible KW knows more than a few WSI posters?

And an all-star eventually.

He had quite an electric arm. It's such a shame. If he comes back just as strong, he could still have quite a great career.

Even with Tommy John surgery, DLS has more value than Swisher right now. Simply because of the millions of dollars we still owe Swisher.
