I'll be there Section 135 row 22, I'll be the big pollak with Nacho's a pepsi (cause it's a week night) and my glove. I've wanted to see this Lee kids stuff and the Fact that Buehrle is pitching (my favorite player)is just an added bonus.

Thanks to the Guy who gave my friend the tickets, and thanks to my friend who couldn't use them, I'v never sat in this "area" of the ball park before. it'll be nice to get a new perspective!

Frank is on a hot streak right now. That catch by Crisp robbed him of another RBI and double. Please stay hot for the next two weeks Frank-we need you. I love the Big Hurt.

I'll be there, I dunno where I'm sitting because I'll be sitting with a friend of mine who has the tickets, but it should be some good fun at the Cell. Go Frank! More importantly, we need a good outing out of Buerhle tonight, and, moost of all, a White Sox Winner!

BBTN had a great reaction shot by Frank--I was expecting him to drop an F bomb, but he just said "WOW" as he rounded first to head back to the dugout.

We'll be there tonight; Wonder if they'll put anything up on the scoreboard about Frank moving up the list.

A slick-fielding shortstop and superior batsman, George Davis compiled 2,683 hits, a .297 batting average, and 631 stolen bases over a 20-year big league tour. The talented switch-hitter split the majority of his career between the New York Giants and the American League Chicago franchise. He batted over .300 in nine consecutive seasons and in 1893 fashioned a then-record 33-game hitting streak. He led the "Hitless Wonder" White Sox with six RBI in their victory over the Cubs in the 1906 World Series.

Did you know ... that on June 14, 1893, George Davis became the first player in big league history to hit a home run and a triple in the same inning?

Well, heck. That alone should make him a hero in the eyes of all of us!

Clearly not as funny as someone who doesn't know (or learn) squat about the history of the game asking what significance any of this has and then mocking it when it's presented.

what is clear "randar" is that if you think a 'milestone' which is older than methuselah at #49 at that is worth celebrating then you're more boring than i thought. and if you feel knowing about a guy who played 100 years ago (in essentially a different game) constitutes 'squat' then by all means ... wallow in your squat! do you woo all your friends with such knowledge?
personally i think it's akin to celebrating 25th place for all-time white sox stolen bases amongst catchers.


as you're so fond of saying .... BLAH
