Default Dewayne Wise Appreciation Thread

Version whatever. Rotoworld reports he's been released.

I don't share some of the Dewayne hate seen here. He made one of the most memorable defensive plays in Sox history. He had more postseason RBIs for the Sox than, oh, Frank Thomas. Hustled all the time, which probably extended his career. Good luck, Dewayne.

Never understood the ridiculous hatred for a 4th outfielder, seemed too many here blamed the Sox struggles on you. You'll catch on somewhere else on a veteran team as a 24-25th man.

I'm with you.


Beautiful game. Spectacular catch.

Best wishes Dewayne Wise.

Thanks for The Catch. I agree with those who have said that Wise has caught a lot more heat than he has deserved, as a career 4th or 5th OF. It was the more glaring failure of others to put him in a position he was never meant for.

Through no fault of his own he has been a symbol of the ineptitude of the Sox management decisions

To get over 1100 AB's over 13 years with a career .228 ba, .264 obp, and .391 slg is an amazing feat. Enjoy your pension Mr. Wise.

Don't worry, guys, the Sox will sign him again next year.

But, really, the I agree that the hatred of Wise isn't so much about Wise as it is about what it meant that the Sox were putting him into a position he really wasn't meant for. Kind of the same thing that happened with Rob Mackowiak, only stretched out over 5 years.

In reality, Wise was put in a bad position by this organization. He was not an everyday starter, but still played everyday when he shouldn't have.
But regardless, thanks for the catch and stepping up in 2008. He's a pretty stand-up guy and good luck in his future endeavors.

Wise, thanks for playing hard. Hope you realize that the vast majority of Sox fans don't think booing you on Opening Day is the best way to support our team.
