Happy 4th of July Everyone
Congrats to reliever Matt Thornton on being named to his very first American League All-Star team. Great addition in order to create late-inning matchups and help the AL win the game and claim World Series home field advantage.
But We Have Some Work to Do
White Sox fans, once again you need to rise to the occasion — voting early and often — in order to vote first baseman Paul Konerko onto the All-Star Team as the AL’s Final Man. You did it for Scotty Pods and AJ, now let’s do it for Paulie.
Every time you vote, you become eligible to win one of 10 signed Paul Konerko jerseys. Along with the jersey, you will get two tickets to our game on August 14 vs. Detroit, and the 10 winners will have the opportunity to meet Paul during batting practice before that game (my guess is that he will be more than happy to thank his loyal fans.
A great tagline has always helped any campaign. Remember “Vote for Scott” and “Punch AJ?” Let us hear your best ideas for this year’s Final Man vote.
Some early ideas from fans: Klick Konerko, Pick Paulie, Crown the King … others?
