BRIAN ANDERSON: ABOVE THE MENDOZA LINE

In last night’s 7-1 White Sox win over Detroit, Chicago rookie centerfielder Brian Anderson brought his batting average over the Mendoza Line. Mario Mendoza was a light hitting shortstop who struggled to hit .200, although his lifetime batting average is .215. The Sox starting centerfield job was handed to Anderson when Aaron Rowand was traded in the offseason to Philadelphia in exchange for DH Jim Thome. I have been outspoken in my desire to have Chicago see if they can trade for a centerfielder. It has been frustrating watching Anderson struggle at the major league level, especially in a hotly contested playoff race. Last night’s win put the Pale Hose on the Tigers tail, just 3 1/2 games out of first in the AL Central. Now that Brian is FINALLY over the .200 mark (.201), maybe he can take it from there.

LET’S GO BRIAN ANDERSON!!! LET’S GO WHITE SOX!!!
