White Sox Photoshop Cards: D.J. Carrasco

Card #40 - D.J. Carrasco

D.J. brought some unexpected life into the bullpen when it was at a low point in 2008. He started out exceptionally and gave the bullpen the boost that it needed, at the right time. D.J. will definitely be remembered for that, but there was a bigger story on the horizon.

Carrasco's 2008 would be remembered for a fight between him and Kansas City's Miguel Olivo after Olivo was hit by a pitch. Tensions ran high and there were many ejections. D.J. should be remembered for swapping between the bullpen and spot starter duties, but Miguel Olivo made sure that wouldn't happen.

This photo was taken right after the fight had died down. I like the candid moment captured. It shows a human side to these ridiculous blow ups on the field.

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world in the Sox retained Carrasco. Even though he was a little inconsistent at times, he was solid as a rock when he was needed.
