Sunday, September 24, 2006, 9:53 am
Ozuna, LF; Iguchi, 2B; Dye, RF; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Crede, 3B; AJ, C; Uribe, SS; BA, CF. Garcia pitching.
Let’s hope Freddy stays on his roll today. As bleak as things have looked at times over the past 10 days, had we won Thursday and Friday (given Twins losses), think how tight things would be now. Let’s win today, hope Baltimore defeats Minnesota, and see what the final week brings. It’s a longshot, but to quote Joaquin Andujar (I think), in baseball "Youneverknow."
Good to see Dye in today’s lineup.
With an attendance total of 2,919,896 entering today’s game, the White Sox should (weather permitting the game is played) set a franchise record for single-season attendance today. The current mark is 2,934,154, set in 1991 when the new ballpark opened. UPDATED 12:02 pm 9/26: Here is the press release on the record.
Thanks to each and every one of our fans who helped make this year so special at the turnstile. Your support and enthusiasm for this team is appreciated and never taken for granted. It is something we need to earn each and every day.
Let’s hope for some dramatics this week and a very interesting and important series next weekend in Minneapolis.
Go Sox …
