White Sox

From the weekend:

Detroit is reportedly looking at a pair of players to counter Victor Martinez's season-ending ACL injury: Johnny Damon and Juan Pierre. Not Prince Fielder. Damon makes sense, Pierre really doesn't, although given the reaction I got on twitter after passing along the Pierre rumor quite a few Sox fans would be okay with Detroit bringing in Pierre.

Ozzie Guillen promised vengeance, one riddled-with-misspellings-tweet at a time.

Kenny Williams' son, Kyle, was unfortunately the goat in San Francisco's loss to New York in the NFC Championship. I feel awful for Kyle -- I hardly blame his decision to try to make a play on that last punt return with the 49ers' offense looking stagnant. A Giants player made a good play to strip the ball. Stuff like that happens in football.

For Williams' post-game comments, head over to CSN Bay Area.

SoxFest week is upon us. Here's the schedule of events -- I'm looking forward to the seminar with Rick Hahn, Buddy Bell and Doug Laumann the most.

Jake Peavy's 1-0 shutout of Cleveland from last May ranked as the best pitcher's duel of the 2011 season involving the White Sox.

Kevin Slowey will return to the AL Central after kinda-sorta leaving it, as Cleveland acquired him from Colorado with the status of Fausto CarmonaRoberto Hernandez up in the air.

Ever wondered what Jermaine Dye looks like in cookie form? Thanks to the wonders of the internet and former A'sCardinals pitcher Mark Mulder, we now know.
