Let's make it 4 in a row!

Cozart 6
Stubbs 8
Phillips 4
Ludwick 7
Bruce 9
Frazier 3
Valdez 5
Hanigan 2
Latos 1

Nothing against Dusty, but you would think Hanigan gets to bat somewhere besides 8th. He is probably one of the most solid hitters on the team (only 29 strikeouts for the year).

Catcher bats 8th

The CF and SS must contain the top 2 spots in the order.

Can't have lefty lefty in the middle of the lineup ever....but can often have 6 or 7 righties in a row.

Few will disagree with you but most have accepted Dusty's rules.

:bang:


I can almost see it with other players, doing the day-to-day dance, but not with Rolen. He could use a 15-day break anyhow. Just DL him. Get someone up here that can help the team. And let Rolen have a couple weeks off to rest up for the stretch drive.

Gotta wonder what Latos is drawing on the mound with his finger before the first pitch. He does it every game.

If another moderator has already contacted you about this, feel free to disregard.

There is some concern with your username. Boss and GIK have developed a pretty strict policy about masked profanity on here. Users have been routinely warned or been given infractions for using "wtf" or "stfu." As such, we'd like to change your username. You may change it to whatever you want so long as it is appropriate for the forum. If you PM me with what you want your username changed to, I can get that taken care of.

Again, apologies if you've already been contacted about this. It still shows up as an open issue for me.

Thanks for your understanding.

I agree with you. playoffs scare me more than anything because if we face the top pitcher against our worse....we could be in for a long night.

for a good laugh go back at different white sox games this season on the mlb app and listen to Hawk Harrlesons home run calls. They crack me up
