While our Sox failed to make the grade this season, 11 former Chisox find themselves on postseason playoff rosters, including four who won World Series rings with the club, one coach and one manager.
Here’s the breakdown:
Yankees: *Damaso Marte, Nick Swisher
Twins: Orlando Cabrera, Jon Rauch
Red Sox: *Brian Anderson
Cardinals: Tony LaRussa (Mgr.), Dave Duncan (Coach)
Dodgers: *Jon Garland, Jim Thome
Phillies: Scott Eyre
Rockies: *Jose Contreras
* Member of 2005 World Champion White Sox. Anderson was on the team, but not on the postseason roster.
Two more of note: Red Sox Manager Terry Francona managed in the Sox organization and Twins’ reliever Matt Guerrier played in the farm system, but neither made it to the majors with the White Sox.
