Amazing that the Chicago White Sox were featured on the back page of the Chicago Sun-Times this morning on a day when the Chicago Blackhawks play their first home game of the NHL semis. Wow! That’s one for the j-school profs to analyze.
And as for PR people getting called fifth-grade names, the skin is pretty tough after 20 years of doing this, although I did enjoy and appreciate all the calls, emails, DMs and text messages from media and industry folks laughing at the author (even if that’s a pretty easy sport). Thanks, it made my day.
Saturday’s game against the Marlins starts at 1:05 p.m. to avoid the national broadcast window. You can find the White Sox game on Comcast Sports Net and WSCR Radio (670 AM).
The White Sox are 128-101 (.559) all-time in interleague play (3rd-best), going 69-44 at home. Chicago is 16-6 in its last 22 games vs. the NL (12-6 in 2009). Mark Buehrle is 5-0 with a 1.95 ERA in his last eight interleague starts and 19-6 with a 3.62 ERA vs. NL clubs in his career.
PK ranks fifth all-time with 46 interleague home runs, trailing Thome (56), Griffey (55), Delgado (50) and Manny (47).
