Fish In Town

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).

Is it already time for interleague play? Man, it seems like it sure came quickly this year. Maybe it’s because of the cool weather lately. Hopefully we can keep our good IP record and beat the Cubs this year!
