Mondesi at DH


this dude has a monster bat and great speed
he's not that good of a center fielder[he's better at CF than Harris
but at 33,he can run the bases 10 times better than our current
bigbat,Frank thomas.

this would be good for the team,he could be a key player
in the "division race" months

Is Raul Mondesi a possible answer in CF? The Pirates just terminated his contract for breach of contract.

According to the news, if Mondesi clears waivers on Friday (which makes him a free agent), he could play for another team.

Mondesi, 33, has a career batting average of .276 with 266 homers and 842 RBI in 12 seasons. Additionally, Mondesi has had some speed (stealing a career high 32 bases in '97 and 22 last year). Doesn't solve our left handed bat problem though.

Under this scenario, we wouldn't have to part with any of our current players or prospects.
Raul Mondesi?... Just like Milton Bradley... Don't pass go... Don't collect $200.00 ... No Thanks.

Raul has a cannon for arm IIRC. however, he is a total ass in the clubhouse, we dont need that. and who the hell knows what is going on with his issues back home.

First, on Raul Mondesi: I would rather have one lucky winner from WSI get to play CF every day than see Raul Mondesi in a White Sox uniform, let alone playing CF.

Second, on Carl Everett: Carl may clash with managers, Carl may not believe in dinosaurs, and Carl may think that Neil Armstrong was a government fabricated character, but one thing you cannot say about Carl is that he did not play the game hard. Carl played CF hard, Carl was agressive at the plate, Carl took out second basemen with hard slides, and Carl busted his butt down the line after hitting what might have been a double play ball.
2005 Baseball Prospectus player comments:

Scott Podsednik
"...he could be a nice bench player...he's going to do quite well in helping Minnesota win another AL Central crown."
Freddy Garcia
"Garcia is not a bad pitcher, but he's not much better than an average one."
Jon Garland
"The White Sox take pride in noting that Jon Garland is now their fifth starter, which obscures the fact that he pitches like a fifth starter."
