CHICAGO — Thirty years ago this week, the Chicago White Sox made the bold move of promoting Frank Thomas from Double-A Birmingham and inserting him in the middle of the lineup at the start of their playoff push. 4qaLive体育网

芝加哥-30年前的这一周,芝加哥白袜队(Chicago White Sox)做出了大胆的举动,从AAA伯明翰提升弗兰克·托马斯(Frank Thomas),并在季后赛开始时将他插入阵容中间。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

It was a much different era, of course. The Sox didn’t have to worry about delaying Thomas’ debut to 1991 so they could get an extra year of his services before he became eligible for free agency. 4qaLive体育网

当然,那是一个非常不同的时代。红袜队不必担心将托马斯的处子秀推迟到1991年,这样他们就可以在他有资格成为自由球员之前多享受一年的服务。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

All that mattered were three things: the Sox were 3 1/2 games behind the Oakland A’s in the American League West; they needed another bat in the lineup to have a realistic chance to win the division; and Sox Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf was always in “go-for-it” mode at the time. 4qaLive体育网

所有重要的是三件事:袜子在美联西部落后奥克兰A队3.5场比赛;他们需要另一只蝙蝠在首发阵容中有一个现实的机会赢得分区;袜子主席杰里·莱因斯多夫当时总是处于“勇往直前”的状态。4qaLive体育网

So Thomas reported to County Stadium in Milwaukee on Aug. 2, 1990, where he and top Double-A pitching prospect Alex Fernandez both made their debuts in the first game of a doubleheader against the Brewers. With third baseman Robin Ventura also in the lineup, the Sox had their last three first-round draft picks all playing together. 4qaLive体育网

所以托马斯在1990年8月2日到密尔沃基的县体育场报到,在那里他和顶级的双A投手亚历克斯·费尔南德斯都在对阵酿酒人的两场比赛的第一场比赛中首次亮相。由于三垒手罗宾·文图拉也在首发阵容中,袜子在最后三次首轮选秀中都在一起踢球。4qaLive体育网

“Statistically, that’s pretty good,” said Reinsdorf, who had driven up to Milwaukee to watch the kids’ debuts. 4qaLive体育网

莱因斯多夫曾驱车前往密尔沃基观看孩子们的首次亮相,他说:“从统计上看,这是相当不错的。”4qaLive体育网

Thomas knocked out his first career hit — a two-run triple — the next day in a 6-2 win. One of his teammates pranked him by writing “Don’t believe the hype” on Thomas’ shower shoes, welcoming the rookie to life in the big city spotlight. 4qaLive体育网

托马斯在第二天以6-2的比分击倒了他职业生涯的第一支安打-两分三分。他的一位队友恶作剧地在托马斯的浴鞋上写上了“不要相信炒作”,欢迎这位新秀在大城市的聚光灯下生活。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

While the mighty A’s ultimately pulled away by September, Thomas lived up to the hype, hitting .330 with seven home runs, 31 RBIs and a .983 OPS in 60 games. The following year, his first full season with the White Sox, Thomas cranked 32 home runs and drove in 109 runs while leading the league with a .452 on-base percentage and a 1.006 OPS. 4qaLive体育网

虽然强大的A最终在9月份退出了比赛,但托马斯没有辜负炒作,在60场比赛中打出了7支全垒打,31分打点和.983OPS,命中率为.330。第二年,也就是他在白袜队的第一个完整赛季,托马斯打出了32支全垒打,打出了109分,同时以.452%的上垒率和1.006的得分领先于联盟。4qaLive体育网

Numbers don’t tell the entire story of The Big Hurt’s drama-filled Sox career, but they earned him a first-ballot induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame and eventually led to a retired number and statue at Sox Park. 4qaLive体育网

数字并不能说明大伤队充满戏剧性的袜子职业生涯的全部故事,但它们为他赢得了进入棒球名人堂的第一票,并最终导致了他在索克斯公园的退役号码和雕像。4qaLive体育网

One day you look up, and all of a sudden you’re watching Luis Robert — a do-it-all White Sox star for the TikTok era — making a statement he’s finally here. 4qaLive体育网

有一天,你抬头一看,突然看到路易斯·罗伯特(Luis Robert)-TikTok时代的白袜队全能明星-发表了一份声明,他终于来到了这里。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Like Thomas, the rookie center fielder is not messing around. In the first 10 games of the shortened 60-game season, he already has proven himself to be a catalyst on the major league’s top-hitting team. We’ve seen video of him hitting a ball out of the park while falling down and Robert’s defensive range in center is basically foul pole-to-foul pole. 4qaLive体育网

和托马斯一样,这位新秀中场也不是在胡闹。在缩短的60场比赛赛季的前10场比赛中,他已经证明了自己是大联盟顶尖打击球队的催化剂。我们看过他在公园外摔倒时击球的视频,罗伯特在中路的防守范围基本上是犯规杆位对犯规杆位。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Robert moved into the leadoff spot in Kansas City, Mo., Saturday after an injury to shortstop Tim Anderson, and knocked out four hits in his first game atop the order. On Monday, Robert celebrated his 23rd birthday with a pair of stolen bases in a 6-4 comeback win over the Brewers at Miller Park. 4qaLive体育网

周六,在游击手蒂姆·安德森受伤后,罗伯特进入了密苏里州堪萨斯城的领先位置,并在他的第一场比赛中被击出四支安打,位居榜首。周一,罗伯特在米勒公园以6-4复出战胜酿酒人队,用一对被盗的垒庆祝了他的23岁生日。4qaLive体育网

Will manager Rick Renteria turn Robert loose now that the kid is batting first or will the computer geeks convince him to play it conservatively with a deep lineup behind him? 4qaLive体育网

主教练里克·伦特里亚(Rick Renteria)会让罗伯特松散,因为这个孩子是第一个击球,还是电脑极客们会说服他保守行事,在他身后有一支深厚的阵容?4qaLive体育网

It’s complicated. 4qaLive体育网

很复杂哦。4qaLive体育网

With Nick Madrigal batting ninth and Robert first, the Sox have two potential base-stealers hitting back-to-back. But stealing bases is not their game. Robert, who had all three of his team’s steals entering Tuesday, swiped 36 bases in 47 attempts in the minors last year. 4qaLive体育网

随着尼克·马德里格尔(Nick Madrigal)的打击率排名第九,罗伯特排名第一,袜子有两名潜在的抢垒手背靠背击球。但是偷垒不是他们的游戏。罗伯特,他的球队的三次抢断都在周二进入,去年在未成年人队的47次尝试中横扫了36个垒。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Robert sprained his left thumb with a headfirst slide in the spring of 2018 and missed two months, then jammed it again on a slide in an intrasquad game in the spring of 2019. By utilizing one of his best weapons, the Sox also could risk another hand injury. 4qaLive体育网

罗伯特在2018年春天用头先滑扭伤了左拇指,错过了两个月,然后在2019年春天的一场四人赛场内的滑梯上再次卡住了左拇指。通过使用他最好的武器之一,红袜队还可能冒着另一次手部受伤的风险。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Asked Sunday if Robert might get the green light in the leadoff spot, Renteria not surprisingly sidestepped the question. 4qaLive体育网

周日,当被问及罗伯特是否会在领先位置获得绿灯时,伦特里亚毫不奇怪地回避了这个问题。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

“We’re still looking at a lot of the other aspects of his game: the types of leads, how he’s setting up, things of that nature.” 4qaLive体育网

“我们仍在关注他比赛的很多其他方面:领先的类型,他是如何设置的,诸如此类的事情。”4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Renteria must factor in opposing pitchers’ times to the plate, he said, and catchers’ efficiency rates throwing out runners. 4qaLive体育网

他说,Renteria必须考虑到投手与本垒板相反的时间,以及接球手的效率,把跑步者赶出去。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

“So as people in the numbers game would say, it’d be foolish for me to run him into an out, especially with a guy who can throw the ball well across the diamond and the time that they are putting to the plate.” 4qaLive体育网

“所以就像玩数字游戏的人会说的那样,让他出局对我来说是愚蠢的,特别是在一个能把球扔过菱形的家伙和他们把球投到盘子上的时间的情况下。”4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

“Are there going to be times when he’s going to be able to steal bases? Absolutely. Whether he’s leading off or hitting sixth or seventh or eighth, it really doesn’t matter. He’s got the type of speed that you want him to continue to develop that base-stealing skill. So there’s still some things we’re looking at and we’re studying to make sure we’re able to maximize and capitalize on that speed.” 4qaLive体育网

“他会不会有偷垒的时候?绝对一点儿没错。无论他是领先,还是打出第六杆、第七杆或第八杆,这真的无关紧要。他有你想要的那种速度,让他继续发展偷垒技术。因此,我们仍在研究一些事情,我们正在研究,以确保我们能够最大限度地利用这一速度。“。4qaLive体育网

Keep studying, Sox. 4qaLive体育网

继续学习,索克斯。4qaLive体育网

Meanwhile, with Carlos Rodon hurting again, Reynaldo Lopez on the injured list and Michael Kopech on the opt-out list, the Sox need to win games with a thin rotation and a relatively young bullpen. Scoring a lot of runs may be the only answer. 4qaLive体育网

与此同时,随着卡洛斯·罗登再次受伤,雷纳尔多·洛佩兹在伤病名单上,迈克尔·科佩奇在选择退出名单上,袜子需要以微弱的轮换和相对年轻的牛棚赢得比赛。得很多分可能是唯一的答案。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

New hitting coach Frank Menechino can take some credit, though the maturity of the young core and hot starts by Robert, Yoan Moncada and Leury Garcia also have made a big difference. 4qaLive体育网

新的打击教练弗兰克·梅内奇诺可以得到一些赞誉,尽管年轻核心的成熟和罗伯特、尤安·蒙卡达和卢里·加西亚的热门首发也起到了很大的作用。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

Making the numbers more impressive is the fact the Sox are doing it in a season dominated by pitching. The league batting average entering Tuesday was an abysmal .233, with a .315 OBP and a .396 slugging. 4qaLive体育网

让这些数字更令人印象深刻的是,袜子在一个以投球为主的赛季做到了这一点。周二进入的联盟击球率平均为.233,命中率为.315,击球率为.396。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

This Sox lineup is deep — and leading the majors in hitting is no fluke. 4qaLive体育网

袜子的阵容很深-在击球方面领先大联盟并不是偶然的。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

“It certainly bodes well for the talent we have on the club,” Renteria said. “I think it speaks to what they’re capable of doing. Certainly, it speaks to Frankie. We have a lot of young stars that had a lot of success over the last year and we’ve continued to add pieces that are talented and are doing very, very well. 4qaLive体育网

“这对我们俱乐部里的天才来说无疑是个好兆头,”伦特里亚说。“我认为这说明了他们有能力做到这一点。当然,它在跟弗兰基说话。我们有很多年轻的明星,他们在过去的一年里取得了很大的成功,我们继续增加有才华的作品,他们做得非常非常好。4qaLive体育网

4qaLive体育网

“It’s a 10-game stint and I hope to see it throughout the rest of the year and coming years, certainly. But I’m not one of those guys that’s going to get too high and get too low. I’m going to expect that we’ll run nice and even and hopefully when it’s all said and done, we’ll still see ourselves where you’re talking about right now. But it’s certainly an optimistic and a very positive place we’re in.” 4qaLive体育网

“这是一个10场比赛的阶段,我希望在今年剩下的时间里和未来几年都能看到这一点,当然。”但我不是那种会变得太高或太低的人。我会期待我们会运行得很好,甚至很有希望,当这一切都说完了,我们还能在你现在谈论的地方看到我们自己。但这肯定是一个乐观和非常积极的地方。“。4qaLive体育网

It feels a lot like 1990, the start of a new White Sox era. 4qaLive体育网

这感觉很像1990年,一个新的白袜队时代的开始。4qaLive体育网
