It's one game for cryin' out loud. He's still been our most consistent hitter over the last 2.5 months.

No matter how true that is, that is sad.

Signs that the Sox suck:
They get shutout by Bartolo Colon
Todd Hundley hits 2 HRs off them in 1 game
They lose a series to the Cubs
They lose 3 games in a row to the Tigers

Too bad he was flirting with .100 in the beginning of the season when the games mattered.

Our most consistant hitter over any stretch of time would not be batting ninth! Yes, it makes a difference where you are in the order! Royce=pigschit

Substitute whaleschit for pigschit and I agree 100%.

Are you saying those hits don't count when you are batting 8th or 9th?
Sorry, but you can't debate the fact that since June 1, no one on the team has hit better than Royce.

Canseco has and he has only been with the team for a month...

No... I like what he has done, and I was merely making a point. And that point is... DUMP CLAYTON!!!

I wish there were a slot for Jose on this team next year, but with Frank due back, there is just no place to play him, and the Sox need OBP guys , not more sluggers...

yes I am saying that batting 9th is not the same. Having the pitchers pitch to you like the nine guy because you are the nine guy and you are bad a la Royce Clayton. Having a .240 average and being in the lineup spot of the worst hitter on the team, means just that. If Royce was good, consistant or capable of either he would not be last in the order.

Meanwhile, Jose Canseco leads the team in OBP with a sparkling .404.

However, I agree that it doesn't appear that there is a place for him w/ Frank returning. We might consider signing him for the 2002 season and making sure Frank is healthy before just casually dismissing the guy. He's won some games for us. We can probably sign him for cheap and trade him if necessary.

It seems to me that this team gets itself into trouble when they decide to take someone based on the fact that they should be able to trade them. ie. whaleschit. I would like us to not take on extra players that we don't wish to insert into the lineup. We can't wait and see if Frank comes back strong next year because if he doesn't the team will be barely better than this year if at all.

Default It pains me to bring this up, but....

Check out Royce's stats each month (these stats are his BA for the month of, not his actual BA):

April 2001: .125 (7 for 56)
May 2001: .104 (5 for 48)
June 2001: .263 (21 for 80)
July 2001: .342 (WOW! No wonder...27 for 79)
August 2001 (so far): .357 (5 for 14)

His BA as of 8/7/01: .235

So now what? He swooned for April and May, but ever since June, his BA backs up his stance: PLAY ME!!!

And for those of you wanting to see what his defensive stats are:

Fielding pct as of today: .989 (I have no idea what his rank is)
81 games started/88 games total
371 Total chances
130 Put outs
237 Assists
4 Errors. THAT RIGHT, 4 ERRORS.
42 Double Plays.

Now, the question is this: (My best Chet Coppeck immitation
Given the fact of the above, do you play him and let "The General", Jose Valentin play 3B or CF, or do you let Jose retain his SS duties--and keep in mine too, that Jose is not 100%? What would you do???

Stats are from www.chisox.com .

Don't call me hitless, that's for sure.

See this smile on my face? Let's play!
