Random Notes

At 19-6 (.760), the White Sox own the best home record in baseball … the best 25-game home start in Sox history came in 1972 (21-4) … with 32 quality starts, the Sox are tied with the Tigers for most in the American League … tonight is the first of 10 meetings between the Sox and Texas this year … Chicago is averaging 34,111 fans (including 12 sellouts) this season, fourth-best in the American League … our 17.9 percent increase from last season leads the major leagues … Jermaine Dye, who hit two home runs last night and has 40 RBI in his last 38 games, leads the American League with a .671 slugging percentage, is tied for third with 16 home runs and tied for 10th with 41 RBI.

Programming Notes

The White Sox vs. Angels rainout on 5/11 at U.S. Cellular Field has been rescheduled for 8/7 at 7:05 pm … Comcast Sports Net and WSCR 670 AM will broadcast the game … The Sox vs. Indians game on 6/11 and Sox vs. Houston game on 6/25, both at USCF, have been picked up by ESPN with games times now set for 7:05 pm


Any chance we could see a push to get Sox fans to vote Jermaine Dye into the All-Star game as a starter? He’s more than deserving, and we all saw what happened last year with Pods.

I’m with Felix on this one. Jermaine Dye has more than proven (in my opinion) that he is All-Star material. He deserves to be there. What can we do Scott? …Can’t wait for tonight. Finally our good guys will be Home Sweet Home. By the way, this was Jose’s first game this whole season where he didn’t have 100 percent. He’s allowed one bad game. Although I was a little disappointed i know that soon enough we’ll get to where we need to be where offense AND defense is clicking simultaneously. Go Sox!!
