  1. I am interested in going to ST this year. i was wondering if anyone has done this and had tips on where to stay, best place to get tickets ect. Any help would be great.
  2. Cory Snyder has to be my all time worst Sox player. I remember when the sox got him from cleveland he alway seemed to kill the sox. When he played a half a season a sucked. when clemens pitched in the the new park for the first time, (he started off real hot that year) and the sox scored two run in the first. He was playing Lf that night and let a ball pass between his legs to lose the lead and the game. bio Snyder was an instant hit in Cleveland with his power, strong throwing arm, and matinee-idol looks framed by long, shaggy-blond hair. His father Jim had been a minor-league infielder in the early 60s with the Milwaukee Braves. A member of the 1984 U.S. Olympic baseball team, Cory was the fourth overall pick in the 1984 draft. Snyder's 24 homers and 69 RBI in 416 at-bats in 1986 earned him fourth place in American League Rookie of the Year voting. He was a third baseman and shortstop in the minors, but his poor fielding necessitated a move to right field, where he led AL outfielders in assists in 1988. He hit more than 20 home runs his first three seasons, with a high of 33 in 1987, and has hit as high as .272 twice. However, he soon revealed several flaws, including striking out frequently while rarely walking. In a 1989 game, Pete O'Brien was intentionally walked three times in favor of pitching to Snyder. Later that season, while hitting .229, Snyder went on the disabled list with a bad back. Cleveland gave up Snyder him the next season after he posted a .270 on-base percentage, trading him to the Chicago White Sox with Lindsay Foster for Eric King and Shawn Hillegas. It looked as if his career was over when he batted just .175 in 1991, but his power stroke returned somewhat in San Fran and LA. On April 17, 1994 he joined Gil Hodges, Don Demeter, and Jimmy Wynn as the only Dodgers to hit three home runs in a game (Hodges had four). No clubs showed interest when he became a free agent after the 1994 strike year. (SFS/JT)
  3. i was looking into joining the soxpride club I was wondering if it was really worth the $29.00 for a chance to buy prime game tix (opening day Cub- sox ect) i see there is only 60 seat in the section
  4. Indians sign RHP Politte to minor league deal The Associated Press February 14, 2007, 8:50 PM CST CLEVELAND -- Free agent Cliff Politte signed a minor league contract on Wednesday as the Cleveland Indians added another experienced right-hander to their revamped bullpen. Politte appeared in 30 games last season for the Chicago White Sox. He went 2-2 with an 8.70 ERA, but the 32-year-old had his season shortened by right shoulder inflammation and was released in July. He underwent surgery in August. In 2005, Politte went 7-1 with a 2.00 ERA in 68 relief appearances, serving as the primary setup man as the White Sox won the World Series. He has a 22-23 career record with 15 saves and a 4.40 ERA in 330 games with St. Louis, Philadelphia, Toronto and the White Sox. The Indians had the majors' worst bullpen last season, recording just 23 saves. This winter, the club signed right-handed relievers Keith Foulke, Joe Borowski, Roberto Hernandez and lefty Aaron Fultz to address their biggest offseason need. Politte will report to spring training camp with the other Indians pitchers, who are scheduled to arrive later this week. The majority of Clevelands bullpen are former Sox interesting... I wish Cliff the best of luck making the team. He was so huge for us in 05!!!!!!

  7. My roomate said that he heard on the score tonight that the bears aquired Deion Branch for a second round pick next year, did anyone else hear this????
  8. QUOTE(bmags @ Jun 29, 2006 -> 02:10 AM) the fans at NIU pay more attention then the fans at Mizzou was my experience...mizzou's football was pathetic. Dekalb has a few good bars, if you want to watch the game and enjoy some good wings check out fatties, or mollys, if you want to go somewhere after the game check out starbusters or the barn
  9. my whole life.. My Grandfather liked to do things differnt from his older brother who was a cub fan .. The rest is history....
  10. his nickname dating back to college was the "plastice man" He was a hell of a college player and still is a good defensive player
  11. In High School you can kick off a block..... setta did have problems with angles, maybe he can work them out in NFLE. never the less big changes need to be made in the kicker department
