DRG here again to get you through the weekend. I can be reached here..
The Good: Andy Sonnanstine. The End.
The Bad: Baserunning. The End.
The Telling: I don’t know if you have ever had an opportunity to watch a White Sox broadcast, but if not, you should put that on your bucket list. There has never been a bigger pair of homerific broadcasters. At times it is painful and at times it is just downright hillarious. It is very rare for Hawk Harrelson to ever admit that another team actually beat the White Sox. 99% of the time the White Sox lost the game. Last night was as close as it ever gets. They repeatedly talked about how Andy Sonnanstine’s performance was the best they had seen this season. But they couldn’t give all the credit to the Rays. They also repeatedly spoke about how the White Sox “just gave the Rays 3 runs in the second”…”just gave it to them”.
DEVIL DOGS WEBTOPIA…
- Dan Johnson is supposed to be with the Rays today. Still not sure who is being demoted, although if I were Justin Ruggiano I would go ahead and start packing…Jason Bartlett says he is batting a sore shoulder which is affecting his throws. So basically, both players that came over from the Twins were damaged goods. Nice…Carlos Pena was the DH last night and will be again today. [The Heater]
