GAME THREAD - White Sox at Angels - 7:05 pm PDT
Jose Contreras v. Kelvim Escobar
It is time to see the Windy City Whiffers face a good pitcher for at least once on this dog and pony West Coast show of theirs.
After years of going to Angel games where there was not a single White Sox fan in the stadium (not at all like the opposing-fan-packed Boston and Yankee affairs), I must report that not only is the Reinsdorff Bandwagon full, but that these are the fattest fans in the major leagues. Record beer and weiner sales in Anaheim tonight.
They better be marketing to the young Chicagoans, as there isn't a set of arteries among the Pale Hose fanatics likely to be operating the day Bobby Jenks turn 40.
Some Angel Batters Against Contreras
Garret 4/7 1.339 ops
Kennedy 3/7 1.000 ops
McPherson 2/6 1.667 ops (oops)
No excuses, kids, these are the World Cheating Champions and we either beat them without their trusted umpiring scam or we tip our caps to the superiority of a has-been town that everyone leaves.
