5187:

You are thinking of Kenny Boyer.

-----------------

Moose by the way was named to the All Star team in 1965 with the Sox. Had a good year.

2. Danny Tartabull in his one year hit 27 homer runs and drove in 101 RBI's. Again I'd take that thank you.

Next someone will be saying Steve Kemp was over the hill...

I didnt list Seaver because he was the Sox best pitcher for two years.

I honestly forgot that Tartabull had such a good year in 96. What happened to him? He was out of baseball the very next year.

He signed a 1 year contract with the Phillies after his solid year on the Sox. Fouled a pitch off his toe in the first week or two of the season and missed the entire year. He decided to retire after that.

These guys all had some nice years with the Sox, but yes they were past their prime with the Sox.

George Kell
Billy Goodman
Early Wynn......That's a hard one since he won the Cy Young for us at age 39 in 1959 but his best years were with the Indians.
Roy Sievers.....2 nice years with Sox in 60 and 61.

It appears that the Sox were always trying to "catch lightning in a bottle" with veteran players.

I'll always remember McLish's full name, it has stuck with me since I was a kid.

Burks had a very solid year for the Sox in 93 didn't he? I want to say he hit .275, 18 home runs, 75 RBI's.

What's wrong with that?

Sox refused to give him a multi year deal so he went to Colorado and became an all-star. Typical.

The list of players the Sox acquired before or at their prime would be much shorter.

Dibbs:

Unfortunately that's very, very true for a number of reasons.
