YearComment
2007 The aging reliever added to his frequent-flier miles, joining his seventh major league organization in the last four years when the Phils claimed him off waivers from the Reds in late June. They then assigned him to mop-up duty for the rest of the year. He`s been a free agent after each of the last five seasons, and has always taken until the last few weeks before spring training starts to latch on with someone new. This winter is no exception.
2006 Being the poor man`s Todd Jones--without the social indelicacies--can keep one in clover for quite a while. White`s cheap seats souvenir rate took a major dive, something he`ll need to sustain if he`s to survive his dropping strikeout rates. Not offered arbitration by the Pirates, the wandering White will join his eighth organization since 2000.
2003 A nice cheap stretch drive pickup for the Cards, the amazing thing being that nobody picked White up before he cleared waivers. Apparently everyone couldnít overlook that bad numbers in Coors donít tell you a whole lot about whether or not a guy can pitch; in 23.2 Coors innings, he gave 20 runs, and everywhere else, he gave up three runs per nine. Whether the Cardinals picked him up because he was old enough, or because they kept in mind he still throws in the 90s and usually keeps the ball on the ground, it was worthwhile. However, he pretty much gets sole credit for losing Game Four in the NLCS, and Cardinals fans donít forget.
2002 White was worked extremely hard in 1999 and 2000, and the Mets would have probably worked him just as hard last year if he hadn't made several trips to the disabled list. After Wendell was traded, White was used more in the traditional setup role. He signed a one-year deal with the Rockies and should replace Jay Powell as Jose Jimenez's setup man.
2001 Rick White is a good example of the kind of capable pitcher who floats between Triple-A and the major leagues. The difference between him and people like Johnny Ruffin and Chad Bradford is that White got lucky. The difference between him and people like Ricky Bottalico and Jose Mesa is that White didn't rack up a bunch of saves five years ago. Labels should matter less than performance.
2000 Exhibit #453 in how easy it is to find cheap, effective relievers. White serves up more slop than an Army mess hall, but knows how to set up a hitter and consumed a lot of innings for the wounded Rays' bullpen. Chuck LaMar should sign him to a bloated, multi-year contract, then call Seattle.
1999 The old junkballer was called up for what was supposed to be one start in May, when the Rays had a pitching crunch due to Alvarez' injury. Three terrible starts somehow didn't get him sent back to Durham; instead he became an outstanding addition to the bullpen.
1998 Injuries and weight problems knocked him out of the majors, but he tosses five different kinds of junk and was never beating people with overpowering stuff in the first place. He was loaned to the Cubs to do odd jobs in í97, alternately starting and closing at Orlando. Could wind up making a Joe Boever-style comeback as a reliever.
