I forgot to add my final kicker to yesterday’s post, Hurt Feelings. The kicker should have been that Sports Illustrated, in its annual baseball special, didn’t list this blog among the blogs and fan websites that have the best White Sox info. I’m hurt.
No surprise as well, but SI picks up third in the division behind Cleveland and Detroit. We may all feel indignant, but how about the defending AL champion Tigers who add Gary Sheffield to their team and still have the Indians picked ahead of them? This is about the third straight year the Indians are everyone’s darling in spring training …
Overall, SI ranks us 12th in MLB and 7th in the AL behind NYY (1st), Angels (2nd), Red Sox (3rd), Indians (7th), Tigers (8th) and Jays (9th).
Erstad, LF; Iguchi, 2b; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Dye, RF; Crede, 3B; AJ, C; BA, CF; Uribe, SS. Contreras pitching.
Brian Anderson did a live spot on Cold Pizza early this morning, and his appearance was seen by the early arrivers in the Sox clubhouse.
"Next time, look into the camera," AJ chided him.
"Hey, I’m not AJ, Mr. Media," Anderson responded. "I’m not on Cold Pizza all the time like you are."
Anderson’s appearance included a self-made hat advertising a friend’s father’s business. The hat read, Merchado Masonry & Concrete.
