    Heh, yep, Dave Cash used to play a nice 2B for the Pirates. Could hit too.

    Final play in game

    Don't feel bad, these 64 year old eyes also thought ball was in his bare hand.

    Richard Dotson, DNA, Unknown Father

    I read several articles covering that Sports Illustrated article on the Phillies Dalton Gang. Headed by by Turk Farrell and made up of other pitchers from the staff, Jim Meyer was one, Don Caldwell was one for a short time. They were imfamous stay out all night, beat up people in the bar, just rip roaring mean drunks who were all tougher than hell. Farrell was the leader of the gang. https://vault.si.com/vault/1960/06/13/the-dalton-gang-rides-again https://seamheads.com/blog/2016/03/11/the-last-ride-of-baseballs-dalton-gang/ https://tht.fangraphs.com/the-turk-the-bear-the-bird-outlaw-night-riders/

    FS: Gavin Sheets Interview

    There was that Water Polo guy, Sam Abbott. He was a 1Bman. Zangari. Jameson Fisher. Tyler Osik, I guess Fisher played some outfield, but the others were just 1Bmen.

    Twins offense

    Garver had a huge year last year. Kepler seems to be regressing with the bat and now he is hurt I think. They let Schoop and Cron go, Tigers picked them up and Schoop has helped them a lot. Rosario has not taken the next step up, seems to have hit his level.

    The guy has owned the Minnesota Twins this season.

    He does remind me so much of when Claudell Washington used to be out there. Maybe some Alex Rios too.

    FS: Zack Burdi gets major league call

    In his save I believe he struck out all 3 batters in the 1 inning.

    FS: White Sox sign 5th rounder Bailey Horn

    Tommy John surgery, here is a blurb from story Horn joined Auburn in 2019 as a redshirt sophomore after a serious Tommy John surgery the season before.

    Your All Time White Sox team

    Happy Felsch s/b CF, also part of scandal that cut his career short. He played CF, Jackson played RF. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/f/felscha01.shtml

    Your All Time White Sox team

    Johnson for CF is a bit weak. Jungle Jim Rivera may be a better choice. Think we had a guy named Roush back around 1920s who was outstanding. Shoeless Joe maybe could have played CF.

    Offseason 2019-2020 MLB Catch All Thread

    One would think the staff talked to Jose and some of the other Cubans on the team for their input on Puig. Maybe it was a resounding no.

    White Sox sign Andrew Romine

    Once Madrigal is up with the varsity he would likely start at 2B with Mendick the reserve. If Anderson got hurt for a bit I could see Madrigal slide over to SS or else Mendick if he can handle SS at this level.

    Twins Sign Donaldson

    Sano moves to 1B since Cron is gone. Errors for the SS and Donaldson and whoever plays 2B are going to rise a bit with Sano on the 1B bag.
