Demanding a 22 year old be moved to DH in his major league season is though.

He has been playing organized baseball in the U.S. since the age of 17 with the Cubs.  It’s not happening, dude.  He pretty much is what he is on defense.

And likely to get worse as he gets older and heavier

No way that guy would have ever hit an INSIDE THE PARK HOME RUN 

If Paul Konerko can do it, than pretty much anyone could.

You see that slide past the bag out all the, all the time. It seems like that should be really pretty easy to avoid if you pay attention to what you're doing. What else do you have to have your concentration on once you reach the bag?

But it must be tougher than it looks.

Exactly, I don’t understand why this is so tough to understand.

He played RF most of his life until the Sox decided to switch him to LF half way through AA (all full time in AAA). They should've immediately had him in LF after they acquired him and working on his angles and such in A+ ball. Again speaks to the development system there.

It's crazy to me that he gets ripped on as much as he does when we literally have seen some truly awful OFers defensively on this team for years.

Usually during a pitching change, the analytic teams would have the iPad out to look at the stats, numbers, etc. Didn't see it from the Sox there.

 I don't need an ipad to know there are some guys in the pen that suck.

This isn’t true, according to his fielding stats with the Cubs...

You dont even need to be high, just in the right set of mind.

Sometimes you just have to watch for the enjoyment. Love or hate him, Walton has lead an insane life and is a unique guy. 


Did you know Hawk, thats an amazing comment.

This Bill Walton broadcast should be saved for all posterity. Bill Walton has had so many crazy, zany, wonderful lines. He's been all over the map while exuding pure joy at watching the White Sox play.

He's had so many memorable, amazing lines it's just hard to believe.

This is the best broadcast of all timer (OK hyperbole) but this is special!!!!!
