From yesterdaythis morning:
Chuck Garfien discovered a classic Hawk Harrelson rant involving fan interference, Joe Brinkman and the Texas Rangers from 1991. The diatribe in question:
That was a hilariously bad call-then-non-call by Brinkman, so Hawk's well within his rights here.
Speaking of hilarious YouTube videos, here's what happens when you give a White Sox fan a Cubs gift for Christmas.
We looked at the top five storylines of 2011, with the downturns of Adam Dunn and Alex Rios topping the list.
And finally from us, Chicago Tribune Live debated whether the White Sox are rebuilding.
James at White Sox Observer argues the A's blowing up of their team has hurt the trade market for White Sox players. It's an interesting argument, and one that's steeped in a not-so-covert disdain for the A's.
Prospect guru John Sickels rolled out his White Sox top 20 prospects. "No organization is completely empty and there are some interesting guys here, but overall the White Sox have well-earned their reputation as the weakest farm system in the game."
Had this been the scripted outcome, it would've sounded a little too cheesy.
But in reality, it was a moment that got White Sox fandom as excited as the dude rounding the bases.
Eloy Jimenez, playing in his first game at Wrigley Field nearly two years after the Cubs traded him to the White Sox, smacked a game-winning homer off Pedro Strop in the ninth inning, breaking a 1-all tie and giving the South Siders a 3-1 victory in the first Crosstown game of the 2019 season.
Jimenez had been asked countless times about what it would be like to play in the park he long assumed would be the one where he played his big league games. And he expressed excitement, though committed to saying it would be like any other game.
Jimenez had a disappointing outcome in his first at-bat of the evening, ending a bases-loaded, one-out situation in the first inning with a double play. He singled and walked in later plate appearances, but nothing was anywhere near as dramatic as his trip to the plate in the ninth. He hit Strop's pitch so hard it sounded like he broke his bat. The ball still ended up in the left-field bleachers.
One ninth-inning blast in June 2019 won't rip the rebuilding White Sox contention window open immediately, but what an image of rebuilding progress it was, with Jimenez, the middle-of-the-order centerpiece for the next decade, blasting a game-winner against the Crosstown-rival Cubs.
Jimenez's permanent smile was indeed present as he rounded the bases, made even bigger by his Tuesday night heroics. The White Sox are hoping they were the first of many.
