Kenny Williams, Pay the Man

duvw7zzdFresh off bailing the Toronto Blue Jays out by taking the horrible contract of Alex Rios off their hands, the city of Seattle noticed White Sox GM Kenny Williams walking around and figured since he was so generous why not help out the city budget some too. In Seattle to see his team take on the Mariners, Williams was nabbed by the police for the horrible crime of jaywalking outside the stadium, something they also nailed Manny Ramirez for last season.

Exiting a cab and heading towards the stadium, Kenny crossed the street without using the crosswalk. Williams informed the officer who stopped him that in Chicago people cross the streets everywhere, not just at the crosswalks. The officer informed him that’s not how things are done in Seattle, handing him a $56 ticket and sending him on his way.

Where in the World is Bartolo Colon

bartolo-colon-dominican-republicScheduled to make a Triple-A start on Thursday, Bartolo Colon is nowhere to be found; this is a small issue for the Chicago White Sox.

I know where he is supposed to be right now. He’s supposed to be in Charlotte, preparing to start Thursday,” White Sox GM Ken Williams said Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune. “Efforts to contact his agent have been successful. Their efforts to contact their client have not been so successful.”

I recommend first checking out all the area Old Country buffets…

You Said It!

After Monday’s game, AJ Pierzynski of the Chicago White Sox was talking with reporters about Jim Thome’s 550th HR with one of the smarter statements anyone has ever said.

He’s got almost 600 home runs so he’s done it a million times. He’s been up there so many times that I don’t think it phases him. The guy made a mistake and Jim hit it. The one thing about Jim if he gets the barrel on the ball it can go out to any part of the park. That’s why he’s got 550 homers.

Which is it, 600 or 1 million?

Colon Broadway Gobble

ColonBroadwayGobble copyYesterday the Minnesota Twins flat out DEMOLISHED the Chicago White Sox 20-1. The prime culprits for the White Sox were the first three pitchers they put out there, Bartolo Colon (2 IP, 8 R, 7 1 ER) , Lance Broadway¬† (3.1 IP, 6 R, 5 ER), and Jimmy Gobble (1 IP, 6 R, 6 ER). Yikes. That’s what we call epic failure.

Look at those names in a row, Colon Broadway Gobble. Tell me that doesn’t sound like an Off-Broadway avant garde show wherein two guys spend times inserting bananas into each other and then eating them.

Wonder What’s On His Mind

The Chicago White Sox sometimes go by the moniker of The Pale Hose, but I was unfamiliar with this nickname for the team…

A Boy Who Loves to Play Baseball

Here is the story of Adam Bender, he’s 8 years old and plays catcher on his Little League team in Kentucky. When he was 1 years old his leg was amputated due to cancer, he doesn’t use a prosthesis and only uses his crutches when he’s on base. He also over the weekend got a chance to meet a bunch of the Reds at their stadium and throw out the first pitch, a week after he got to hang out with the White Sox. Excuse me for a minute the room just got really dusty…
