Looks like the Sox' mascot Southpaw was given new life in Home Run Derby (http://homerderby.com)'s mascot brackets.

But he gets a heck of a challenge against the Phillie Phanatic in the second round.

Go and vote for Southpaw (http://homerderby.com/archives/2376)!

If the Sox held a poll about whether or not the Sox should even have a mascot, I'd vote that they shouldn't. The only sport that should have mascots is football, and maybe college basketball. Other than that, they are lame, and especially in baseball, and especially Southpaw.

Southpaw is kind of weak in my opinion. I like Staley just becasue he'll make fun of the other team...like when he came out in a tiger "pimp suit" to mock the Bengals uniforoms in 2005 or when he'll tie a stuffed animal lion to the goal posts and punch it.

The Blackhawks mascot is lame, althought the name "Tommy Hawk" is kind of clever. Benny the Bull nearly translates into the actor Benicio del Toro (It's actually Benicio El Toro) which cracks me up. I can do without the Cubs "mascot" aka Ronnie Woo Woo.

For kids under eight, he's great. I have two nephews who qualify so of course, I am casting 603 votes for Southpaw (I am from Chicago.)

Agree, my grandaughter and grandson met him today. They couldn't wait to get home and call me. He'll help to fight off the cub propaganda they receive from their father.

You can not compare South Paw to the Philly Phanatic. If you vote for SP over PP you are just as guilty as those dumb Yankee fans who voted for Golden Boy Jeter over A-rod when he played for Texas.

If the kids can't get excited about the White Sox for the sake of the White Sox, then I don't even WANT their fandom!

:D: I'm glad your nephews like him.

No mascot will ever be better than the Stanford Tree. And The Phanatic blows away Southpaw. That said, I'd vote for Ribbie and Rhoobarb if they were an option.

My fiancee loves Southpaw and it cracks her up when she sees him in the scout seats while we watch the game. So, in this household, Go SOUTHPAW!

Ribb and Roob are still alive in the MLB Mascot Brackets.
They beat Youppi! (http://homerderby.com/archives/1105) in the first round ...

And will line up against Raymond (TB Rays) in this round.

The tournament is a joke if the Phanatic and the Chicken aren't in the finals.

Seriously, the San Diego Chicken was so popular that he would tour around the league and do games for other teams. I remember him doing a couple Cub games every year in the mid 80s.

Voting for Southpaw makes a mockery of the sanctity of the game of baseball!!!!!!!

Consign Southpaw to the mascot circle of hell, joining Ribby, Rhubarb, and a deep fried San Diego ****ing Chicken.

**** Mascots!

And he also likes to beat up on women, which is pretty fowl if you ask me.

The bastard probably likes to get drunk after work and come home and beat the hell out of his hen!

We should sign Randall Simon to hit Southpaw with a baseball bat.

Let's get out the vote for Southpaw. It's a close race. Deadline is Aug. 2.

The true underdog was in the mammal division with Bobcat losing. He is by far the best Mascot I have seen. They even have a portion of their park devoted to him.

I voted for Southpaw because I'm a Sox fan but I think Raymond of the Rays is hilarious.

I think that scene lasted about 17 minutes and was funny for approximately the first three seconds.

That show is really hit or miss.

The Philly Phanatic is fat and out of shape, and in a fight, Southpaw would totally beat his ass.
