SWEET HOME CHICAGO

Nick & I drove 12 hours from Toronto to Chicago a week ago Sunday. The trip wasn’t that bad, even though it was made worse by the fact that I developed some type of upper resp thingy Saturday night (hope I’m not allergic to stripper’s perfume). Monday I extended my baseball trip one more night by going to the Cell to see if the White Sox could win one against the hard charging Ceveland Indians. I wish somebody could get those “naked Ozzie” pictures away from Damaso Marte. The White Sox took the lead in the bottom of the 7th 5-4 after trailing 4-0, but then Ozzie made some bad decisions. Rather than either leaving Neal Cotts in to pitch the top of the 8th or bring in Cliff Politte, Guillen started off with Luis Vizcaino getting Jhonny Peralta before giving way to Marte. Damaso walked the hot hitting Travis Hafner, Victor Martinez got a double, and then Ben Broussard struckout. With the go ahead run on 2nd fastball pitcher Bobby Jenks was brought on to get fastball hitter Aaron Boone, who ripped a two run single off a Jenks’ fastball to give the Tribe the lead. Then Dustin Hermanson gave up an insurance run in the 9th before Bob Wickman set the Sox down for a 7-5 Indian winner. GO SOX GO!!!
