    Old Farts Only: 50 + Year Sox Fans

    We did not trade Denny McLain, he was just a kid and had to be protected under some rule. There were 3 kids and only 2 could be protected. So they protected Bruce Howard and Dave DeBusschere (yes the future NBA star). If Sox had known DeBusschere would leave a bright MLB future for the NBA. Woulda, coulda, shoulda.

    Not sure he has been hurt, he has been hitting well and stealing bases.

    He has played 5 games in the outfield, no games in the infield. DH the other 40 games I assume.

    That is what they said about Frank.

    Carlos May (the version before he blew off his thumb) Dave Nicholson (although he came from Baltimore I believe he was still just a prospect in our org) Neither likely the best, but a couple good ones.

    Thanks for looking it up, I read your first sentence and right away said, man it seems like 3 weeks now. Their hitting finally has picked up some. Pitching, at least the guys I consider starters, have been ok all year. Now they are getting some runs. Their bullpen sucks real bad most of the time.

    Sydney Pimentel got his first couple hits, while playing SS, yesterday. However, he did have 3 errors.

    We did back when we were #1. If our pitching was healthy we would be close to having 2-3 at the 4 levels above rookie ball. Not unrealistic. Not saying we need 3-4 Cease types at every level. Just someone who has a chance, for too long we have not even had those types. Too many org types.

    Never have enough pitching, when we were #1 in prospects in early 2000s it was almost all pitching. 80% of them did not pan out. We do not have enough, we need 3-4 real good starters at each level and we do not have that yet. If we have a glut of outfielders eventually move some for pitching.

    Midseason 16-30 - the back half of the FutureSox T30

    I think the other poster means list the 16-30 in this article backwards. Do 30 first and 16th last. I just start at bottom and read from bottom-top. Same difference.

    The boxes from mlb.com, which I do not typically look at, has that for a pitch count with pitchers stats. The milb.com box does not have a pitch count listed anywhere.

    Young SS, Sydney Pimentel, had a couple at bats today in the DH role. His first ABs since signing.
