    Ah, Roger, we can forget about Andy Wilkins, at least for this season.  The integrity of the game is on the line, or so I'm told, if this possible stiff takes at-bats away from well-known stiff Adam Dunn.  This could effect the pennant race for other teams.  What if Wilkins were to hit a meaningful late-inning homer and not one of those where the game was already decided, ala Oaf?  And if that happened against a contender, that could possibly knock them out of the race.  Heaven forbid!  The whole game of baseball may self-destruct! affraid

    There is some sort of unwritten rule that a non-contender shouldn't make itself into a complete patsy in late season games against contending teams.   But that is usually only extends to the idea of sitting out their better performing players.   Sox will undoubtedly keep Abreu getting his regular AB's, as well as Eaton, Gillaspie and Ramirez.   But sitting out Beckham, Viciedo, DeAza, Flowers or Dunn shouldn't be considered crippling oneself.  Still, Ventura may play his "regular crew" against some contenders.

    And of course no one has been talking about benching Abreu.  I've been posting all along about giving some of the at-bats of the veteran STIFFS to unproven players.  Nothing to lose there.  Even the suddenly dredged up "integrity of the race" isn't in danger.  It's totally idiotic that anyone could be so poorly deficient in reading comprehension to misunderstand that it's anything other than all about getting the STIFFS out of the lineup!  Unless, of course, that person enjoys having the STIFFS play because it gives him more to moan, groan, and bitch about like some old hag. Smile
    Having a reading comprehension problem can be helped.  When somebody has NO COMMON SENSE, that tends to be a problem.  A few short seasons ago somebody here was screaming for Guillen to bench Dunn and Rios.  Did it happen, NO.  Here we have an even more off the wall poster thinking the Sox are going to just RELEASE all of these veterans so YOUNGER players who either do not exist or are nowhere near MLB ready can get a few at bats.  There is a 25 man roster until Sept. 1.  I guess half of the starters should be DFAd, Reinsdorf gladly eats the salaries, and some crazed fan who can't seem to get enough of bad White Sox Baseball stays perched in front of a TV set.  Have fun!!!!  BRING UP TAYLOR!!!  HOW ABOUT A CHARLOTTE UPDATE???  STAY RIVETED TO NONSENSE.  2 MONTHS LEFT!!!

No need for all of this bickering, profanity, name calling and acrimony. It accomplishes nothing and only creates tension and unpleasantness on the board. There's no reason why you can't disagree with one another with dignity and benevolence.

    Well, for instance, maybe if Hahn looked hard enough, he could find a left fielder somewhere who can catch a fly ball that hits him square in the mitt when the game is on the line with the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position and 2 outs in the 8th inning.
