Although the White Sox were off to a slow start in Spring Training, the Southsiders went 5-2 this past week and seem to be settling into a groove. These wins put the Sox at a more respectable 10-13 overall, mostly thanks to the arrival of some serious offense.
The Sox scored 13 runs in last Wednesday’s win over the Seattle Mariners and routed the Kansas City Royals 16-4 the next day. Highlights of Wednesday’s game were Alexei Ramirez’ three hits and three RBIs, as well as new addition Kosuke Fokudome having two hits of his own. The biggest event of Thursday’s game was definitely Adam Dunn hitting two out of the park and contributing six RBIs on the day.

Talk radio goes days and days without something that piques our interest. Blah, blah, blah. And then Don Mattingly comes on the Dan Patrick Show and drops a “this little sh*t” bomb when referencing Ozzie Guillen.

At age 6, I had my first best friend. I do not remember why I was chosen as companion and owner of this particular Teddy Ruxpin, but he was mine. This robot-bear existed solely to read children’s stories via a tape player tucked in his stomach pouch. But it was easy for me, a wallflower with a stuffed animal obsession, to relate to the animatronic bear on a deeper level. I would...
