    Danny Richar

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Apr 14, 2008 -> 03:06 PM) Let's put it this way...based on their performance in recent years, I think Jim Thome has earned himself a longer leash than Juan Uribe. If Jim is putting up a sub 600 OPS in May/June, then there's clearly got to be something wrong and it's time to DL him and maybe try to find a way to use Fields/Anderson/someone else to get more production out of that spot. But I wouldn't bench him otherwise until probably the AS break. I've seen Jim Thome. I know what Jim Thome's bat can do, and I've seen Jim Thome be a very streaky hitter throughout his career, where he does get in to these funks but always breaks out. If Juan Uribe is hanging around the Mendoza line about a month from now, Mid-May, when a potential replacement for him completes a rehab assignment...then it's time. I've seen what Uribe's given me lately, I've seen him simply unable to improve on his numbers for 3+ years now, and he's off to a worse start this season than his April last year, which wasn't any good either. If Uribe can't turn his season around ASAP, then there's no great reason to keep giving him playing time. Remember this...as a rookie, a very raw kid who's been raw at every level he's landed at and who finally started getting things going in September (Faster than I expected) after a month in the big leagues...Richar put up a .230 BA and .695 OPS in his first 1/3 of a season. That's basically what the veteran Uribe put up for the whole year (and actually a better OPS for Richar). I can expect one of these 2 to get better with playing time. I don't think I can expect that from the toher. Yes and I'd agree obviously Thome is more established theres no debating that, but that wasnt my point...nonetheless though granted Uribe hasnt done anything to neccessarily deserve the starting nod yet I dont feel he's subject to have his position be taken away from him either especially from an unproven Richar but we will see

    Danny Richar

    QUOTE (SoxFan101 @ Apr 14, 2008 -> 03:51 PM) If I was making my judgement off of Uribe by using this season as my only reason than maybe you got a point.... but than you look at the past 2 seasons where Uribe hit in the .230's with a sub .300 OBP....Thome only had a OBP north of .400 both years. Honestly, what were you trying to prove by comparing Uribe to Thome? You mentioned NOBODY should be in the lineup with a sub .200 BA thats why I referred to Thome, yes I know ones proven the others not but based on your theory you'd have Thome on the bench

    Danny Richar

    QUOTE (BearSox @ Apr 14, 2008 -> 03:29 PM) Thome has proven to be one of the best hitters in baseball, and whether he's slumping or not, pitchers don't forget how dangerous he can be. Uribe on the other hand has proven to be garbage with the bat, and hasn't shown any improvement. Horrible comparison. Yes I'm aware that Thome is a proven hitter but his post quoted as NO player under .200 should be in the lineup therefore I referred to Thome...obviously I'm not an idiot I know the difference between Thome and Uribe as hitters I was just basing it off his knowledge

    Danny Richar

    QUOTE (SoxFan101 @ Apr 14, 2008 -> 02:53 PM) Uribe has done nothing so far to deserve the starting nod at 2B and don't know why anyone wants him to stay there. Granted, he does play good defense but when your batting sub .200 I don't care how good your defense is you aren't deserving a starting spot. I will say that I don't want the team to rush Richar back or anything of that sort, let him get completely healthy and a week or so in the minors before putting Danny back in action. I dont see what point you're making, granted Uribe cant hit a lick but based on your assesment Thome I guess shouldnt be in the lineup either as he falls in that sub .200 range as well...Lord, we're 11 games into the season, he's played a great 2B and hell if aint broke don't fix it we got enough boppers on this team anyways...

    Nick Swishers Chin Hair...

    QUOTE (Markbilliards @ Apr 8, 2008 -> 10:35 PM) Yeah, Williams needs to step up here. Either Boone and Bobby cut that awful beard, or let Buehrle go back to his tarp-sliding days. Who cares they're havin fun, they're grown men let em do what they want this is dumb

    Positive Catch All

    Heres a positive somewhat Sox related, LAA and Torii Hunter beat the Tribe with a walk off GS in the 9th off Borowski...Always nice seeing those division rivals get beat even if it is premature

    Who is the MVP of the Tigers Series

    AJ, Quentin, Swish, Dye all were great and hell even Crede's hitting around .370...Danks and Floyd both looked good and it was awesome seeing Buehrle rebound and redeem himself last night as has the bullpens done a great job...This teams going to be VERY fun to watch this season and I'm loving every second of it
  11. peanut33tillman

    THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER!

    Though Crede didnt play his best game defensively letting a few balls sail he swung the bat well had a 3 hit game tonight, kudos Joe and great series fellas

    Buehrle (0-0) vs. Verlander (0-0)- KEEP IT UP!!

    Its fun seeing the guys jump around and act like asses after a big series win like this, this team has a different feel to it so far to me and I like it alot. Ha I love seeing Swish jack around and act like an ass high fivin and stuff I love this kids attitude...I'm likin this team alot so far

    Contreras vs. Robertson (BORING!)

    QUOTE(fathom @ Apr 4, 2008 -> 01:15 PM) For some reason, over the past two years, Contreras is given the longest leash of anyone in the rotation. I know it, it seems as of Ozzie still hangs on to the '05 and even the '06 Jose rather than the Jose of late...he just doesnt have it anymore
  16. peanut33tillman

    Contreras vs. Robertson (BORING!)

    god damn what the hell is he doing out there?? that fastball when he drops down is flat as a pancake he's so predictable....ughhhh

    THAT'S A WHITE SOX WINNER!

    QUOTE(witesoxfan @ Apr 3, 2008 -> 09:42 PM) Of his caliber? He's the 7th hitter, and once Granderson gets healthy, he'll be the 8th or 9th hitter in the lineup with Inge getting bumped to the bench. He's not a real good player anymore, and he does have a s***ty OBP, but he does make up for that somewhat by hitting at a decent clip. Juan Uribe hits .230-.240, and that's why people are upset with him. I dont see a valid point ur trying to make here witesox, yea he hits 7 hole but have you seen that lineup?? take a look at that all star lienup and you might rethink what you said...I could care less for Pudge but its unfair to make an assessment on him because he hits low on a team full of massive amounts of talent...

    White Sox @ Indians - Opening Day Game Thread

    QUOTE(RockRaines @ Mar 31, 2008 -> 07:00 PM) I want 1. Swish LF 2. O cab SS 3. Thome 4. Kong 5. Dye 6. AJP 7. BA CF 8. Crede 3B 9 A-ram 2B vs Carmona. Im not sold on Uribe's phantom ST performance. BA needs to get some early at bats here to see if maybe HE turned it around. Yup do like that lineup alot there rock, damn these off days after opening day suck alot I'm already dying for Wednesday

    Official How Many Games Will the Sox Win Thread

    I'll say 85-77 I really do feel this is a team that can and will surprise and shock some people...if they can find any consistency out of the back end of the rotation, and vasquez can rebound and put up another good year I feel this team can do some special things it's just really unfortunate we play in the toughest division in baseball
  20. QUOTE(maggsmaggs @ Mar 26, 2008 -> 05:39 PM) Simple as this: MacDougal, Hall and Crede should not be on the opening day roster but the Sox feel the need to keep them. They will lose us games, Hall especially with no bat and no arm. Mac comes in and always gives us baserunners and runs and Crede pops up in the infield more than anyone else. Though I usually agree with you're posts maggsmaggs I'm curious to know as to how Crede's going to LOSE us games?? He's no A-Rod or Miggy with his stick obviously but if he anything his leather will SAVE us some games. Some people take for granted his glove work at 3rd sometimes and it pisses me off....

    Nick Swisher

    Does anybody love this guy as much as I do?? I was reading an article on MLB.com and I cant help but get excited to have this guy on our team this season...Already turning into one of my favorite players, I hope he just f***ing tears it up this year I'm dying to get this season going.

    Nick Swisher

    QUOTE(GreatScott82 @ Mar 5, 2008 -> 10:22 PM) Nick Swisher is a gamer thats for sure. For him to go up to Ozzie and say "I can't stand to be losing these ST games" says an aweful lot. This dude cares, he has fun and he will make an imediate impact. He will be on Sportsnite tonight at 10:30 for an interview. That should be entertaining. Yea I thought that article and that quote really shows that fiery competitive attitude i think this team seems to lack at times...Im expectin big things from swish

    QUOTE(SoxPride56 @ Mar 5, 2008 -> 01:15 PM) One of my favorite already as well. I got the chance to go out drinking with him, Danks, and Owens during SoxFest. He is one hell of a good guy. Even exchanged email addresses, and he emailed me that Tuesday after the fest saying how good of a time it was. Totaly awesome guy! Yea doesnt surprise me one bit he emailed you, I hear he's an excellent guy off the field as well...lol lucky you getting to kick a few back with him I bet that was a blast

    Leadoff and two hole predicament...

    QUOTE(Balta1701 @ Jan 30, 2008 -> 07:52 PM) Unfortunately, the problem isn't that he's not an ideal 2 hole hitter...he certainly is. Good bat control, decent speed, just kinda fits that role well. The problem is we don't have an obvious person to hit in front of him, and it seems to make more sense to go Cabrera/Swisher than it does Swisher/Cabrera, because Swisher would be expected to put up better power numbers and you kinda want that guy with a chance hitting in front of Thome and with a chance to have someone on base in front of him. I still think it's possible something will work out where Owens gets a decent chunk of AB's and actually gives us a .350ish OBP and solves this problem for a bunch of games, but the problem with that is we have no where to play him right now. Oh yea and i can absolutely agree with that, if O-Cab isnt hitting 2 hole he should be our leadoff man with Swish hitting second, assuming Quentin starts over Owens in LF, but to hit him in the 8 hole I think is a little crazy, but JMO...
  25. peanut33tillman

    Leadoff and two hole predicament...

    Qwerty do u really believe O-Cab would be better suited as a 8 or 9 hole hitter honestly? How do you figure? Cabrera hit over 300 last year with over 600 ABs in the 2 slot, granted his OBP I believe was somewhere around .350 but this kid is the ideal 2 hole hitter for this ball club....
