Chicago White Sox Milestones 2009

The Chicago White Sox have had two players achieve many career milestones this season. Any guesses on who they are? You shouldn’t be surprised they are Paul Konerko and Jermaine Dye. Paul Konerko reached 6000 career at-bats on August 31st, 2009 against the Twins, 300 career doubles on August 5th, 2009 against the Angels, 1000 RBI’s against the Reds in interleague play on June 21st, 2009, and 300 homeruns on April 13th against the Tigers. Jermaine Dye reached three milestones this season and three of the same that Paul Konerko reached. Jermaine Dye reached 100 RBI’s on April 18th, 2009 against the Rays, 300 homeruns against the Tigers on April 13th, 2009 (Same day as Konerko), and 6000 at-bats back on April 11th, 2009 against the Twins to start the season.

New veteran Mark Kotsay has played in 1498 games and is only two away from 1500. He can reach that any day depending on his playing time. Jermaine Dye has 977 career runs scored and should reach 1000 by next season. Dye also has 1060 career RBI’s and should reach 1100 next season.

Um, did you forget a little milestone called: A PERFECT GAME! Plus, Buehrle became like one of six to throw both a perfect game AND a no-no. Pretty impressive milestones to me

Plus, I'm pretty sure Jim Thome has moved up on the All Time HR leaders board

Jim Thome is no longer a White Sox. That’s why I didn't include him. Jim Thome is pretty close to 600 homeruns. He has 564 homeruns and only needs 36 to 600. He needs 10 more homeruns to 574 to 9th all time, passing Harmon Killebrew.
