Finale in Cleveland
Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Let’s win this one today in Cleveland and take this road series. We need two of three heading to Tampa.
Once the first pitch is thrown, head to Twitter and tweet #GoWhiteSox to help @Southpaw beat @Slider in today’s mascot battle. $1 for each tweet (up to $1,000 per club) goes to Stand Up to Cancer, and the winning tweet gets 4 tix to a game and dinner/lunch courtesy of the losing mascot.
Vote early and vote often. Again, we’re from Chicago. We don’t lose elections. We win them for others!
Believe it or not, it’s been five years to the day since White Sox great Chico Carrasquel passed away. I miss his smile and hello around the ballpark.
Rios On A Roll
Alex Rios is hitting .344 with nine doubles, seven home runs, 16 RBI, 11 stolen bases and 21 runs scored in his last 26 games, and the potential All-Star’s numbers from 2009 to 2010 with the Sox make it hard to believe it is the same guy:
2009: 41g, .199 BA, 3 HR, 9 RBI, 5 SB, .299 OBP
2010 42g, .308 BA, 9 HR, 23 RBI, 14 SB, .355 OBP
