Chicago White Sox
It’s live-blog recap time, 2012 style! As I’m sure you remember, when TD can’t cover the recap, I step in and blog the game from my comfy chair. As always, I know you don’t pay your hard-earned money for no stinking live-recap. Sorry ’bout that. But if you’d like to…
7:15 PM – Three things I learned about Josh Tomlin while hurriedly scarfing down dinner and watching the top of the first inning:
It’s only a matter of time until he gets arrested for a crime he’s not committed: facial hair like that belongs on a picture hanging in the post office.
He has—almost beyond comprehension—never pitched against the White Sox before in his career? Rick Manning has said this three times now, and I still find it hard to believe…
He’s also not learned how to stop letting up home runs. After carrying the fourth-highest home run rate last season, Tomlin picks up right where he left off. Both De Aza and AJ Pierzynski take him deep to right.
White Sox 3, Indians 0.

As Ozzie Guillen tried to explain his way out of another mess he created with his mouth, Chicago's new manager felt compassion for his predecessor.
Robin Ventura watched and wished the best for Guillen.

Prior to the skipper's news conference, the team announced that Ozzie Guillen has been suspended five games for his comments about Fidel Castro.
Florida Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is probably regretting recent statements he made to Time magazine as he’s been suspended for five games by the MLB club for singing the praises of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Quotes attributed to Guillen were published on the popular magazine’s website on Apr 6 in which he praised Castro for his longevity.
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen's comments professing admiration for Fidel Castro caused a bigger uproar than if the Miami baseball team had spent the entire season in last place.
In the U.S. city with the biggest Cuban-American population, Cuban exiles and politicians decried his remarks. Soon afterward, the Venezuelan manager issued a tearful, public apology. He has been suspended...
A.J. Pierzynski hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 10-6 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday.
Pierzynski connected off reliever Rafael Perez in Chicago's five-run, sixth inning that included a two-run shot by Alejandro De Aza off Dan Wheeler. De Aza opened the game with a single and scored during Chicago's four-run first...

The official fallout from Ozzie Guillen’s expression of love for former Cuban President Fidel Castro has begun.
The Miami Marlins have suspended Guillen for five games, without pay.
That may not be good enough, though. Fans and members of the Latino community in Miami are calling for him to be fired.
Here is the controversial excerpt from the TIME Magazine interview...
In light of his comments about Fidel Castro (of which opinions have varied about how disgusting they were, but all falling on that side of the spectrum), the Miami Marlins have suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games, effective starting with tomorrow's game against the Phillies. Guillen will miss the remaining two games against the Phillies, along with the first full series...
For all of you who couldn't understand Ozzie Guillen's press conference earlier today here's what he said (video here):
“I'm here because I hurt a community, I didn't want to do it, but I did it. Not only all the Cuban people around the world or living in Cuba, but the entire Latin American community. People from Venezuela, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and if I forget...
