Looks like I missed an eventful weekend as the White Sox wrapped up their home schedule.
*Ozzie Guillen didn’t like how the Sox watched college football after their 12-5 loss on Saturday. The next day, he explained that he’s trying to have his players set the right example for the young ones.
It’s a nice thought, but I don’t think A.J. Pierzynski has much of a desire to give life lessons to Tyler Flowers.
*Daniel Hudson picked up his first major-league win, even though his location was pretty off in the Sox’s 8-4 in on Sunday. Also, Flowers caught his first major-league game on Saturday.
*Jermaine Dye got a standing ovation in what could have possibly been his last home game on Sunday. Guillen calls him one of the top two players he’s ever managed.
*Brent Lillibridge could see some playing time over the last week of the season. Two more games should do it.
*Something I wish I knew sooner: I’m reading Peter Morris’ Catcher: How the Man Behind the Plate Became an American Folk Hero. I’m only about a quarter of the way through it, but this paragraph caught my eye:
During the (1870 season) spring’s games, scores plummeted , and an increasing number of clubs responded by opting for the “dead ball.” Then on July 23, 1870, the unthinkable happenedwhen the hard-hitting and highly paid White Stockings of Chicago went through an entire game without scoring. The baseball world reacted with astonishment and disbelief. In addition, since there had never been a need for a word to describe going an entire game without scoring, “being Chicagoed” became the standard term for being shut out.
If the Sox have the same problem with putting one run on the scoreboard next season, I’m definitely using this.
