Plays of the Day

Conor Gillaspie and Alexei Ramirez each had a pair of hits–with Conor driving in a run–in the Sox’ loss to the Yankees yesterday in the finale of the four-game series. Gillaspie is now hitting .333, Ramirez .323. The Sox 3B has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and 28 of 31 this season. He is hitting .333 against right-handers and 10 of his 16 RBI have come with two outs.

 

Pretty Cool

Here are two gifts Derek Jeter received from the White Sox yesterday (in addition to a check made out to the Yankee captain’s foundation) before his last regular season game at U.S. Cellular Field. The bench was made by Ron Kittle, the other memento consists of clay from the shortstop area of both old Comiskey Park and U.S. Cellular Field and includes names of some of the greats who played there.

Quote of the Day

Robin on all the Jeter hoopla:

“He’s not dying, he’s just retiring. It’s weird. I’m sure it’s uncomfortable for him going through all of it, but he’s a great player.”

 

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Indians at U.S. Cellular Field (7:10 p.m., CT, WCIU). Starters: LHP Chris Sale (4-0, 1.89) for the Sox, RHP Justin Masterson (2-3, 5.32) for Cleveland.

White Sox fan favorite Aaron Rowand, a vital piece in the Sox’ run to the 2005 World Series title, poses in front of a locker bearing his name at the Baseball Hall of Fame over the weekend. Something tells me that the former Sox center fielder realized it was Hall of Famer Hank Aaron‘s locker and not his own.
