It's only been a little more than a week into the season and we've seen...

Paul Konerko steal a base...

Frank Thomas with an attempted steal...

Carlos Lee attempt a bunt...

Harold Baie joining the mob at home plate...

Win the diviion or not, this is going to be a fun season on the south side.

Actually given that he can bunt and given the situation (needing a run to tie and 2 to win in the ninth with men on first and second) the bunt was the right call, IMO.

Now that is a bad thing if he continues to be given the green light. Let's not go nuts here - he's slow. Same for Frank. They should only be sent when a hit and run is on, IMO. Maybe there was one in either of those cases, or maybe the catcher thought, "Holy crap there goes Pau...sinickers...Koner...guffaws...ko...(laughs so hard he can barely throw) and that was why Paulie was safe... :D:

I think Frank's attempted steal was a blown hit and run.

I was too busy laughing to think about it.

Well Frank must have been fast at one point. He did play TE at Auburn.
