For plunkeveryone: Tovar would lead the league with 17 hit-by-pitches in 1968, but that told only a small portion of his efficiency in the Year of the Pitcher. Lifting his average to .272, he nearly doubled his stolen base output (to 35) and put up an OPS of .698, a highly respectable number for that pitching-dominated era. He also made history by matching the pioneering efforts of Bert Campaneris; on Sept. 22, Tovar played all nine positions in the Twins’ game against the A’s, matching what Campy had done for the Kansas City A’s three years earlier. While Campy was basically a shortstop, Tovar was a legitimately versatile player who could play three infield and three outfield positions, making his accomplishment seem more real in the eyes of some.

Interesting story about the home-town aspect of potential draftees. Not a real long piece, but you think about how big and special a day it is for guys who are going to be drafted, and how it plays out in hundreds of guys' lives in the draft.

A Timeline of the Messy White Sox Roster

1

This is a graphical representation I made of the White Sox's roster moves over the course of the season. I think it helps to put into perspective just how hectic this season has been. Whether for injury or ineffectiveness, the Sox have changed parts twice a week on average. 21 pitchers have already seen time on the active roster, and only 5 (highlighted in gray) have stayed on the roster all season.
