I couldn't put The Genius in teal, but I'll give the guy credit...he actually has something nice to say about the Sox for a change. Of course, he'll say on the radio that "when the Sox win, I'll tell you why."

See for yourself. Remember, this ig the same guy who says Chicago is "too regionalized" in comparison to other cities when it comes to national sports. We won't glue ourselves to the TV when Phil Mickelson wins his first major tournament in dozens of attempts, but Cubs/Sox...we're there.

Last winter I told a co worker (cub fan) that I couldn't wait until summer to watch Mr. Zero whiff Sammy in the 9th with the game on the line to preserve an exciting White Sox victory. He called me a "typical Sox fan....living in fantasy land"

Now I know it wasn't the 9th inning, and Sammy ended up grounding out to Crede, but Sammy looked totally fooled by the "frisbees" that Shingo was slinging up to the plate in the 8th inning!

P.S. Memo to my forlorn cub fan co worker Mike......How you like Mr. Zero now bab-eee?

This is the same idiot that berated Reinsdork for making KW the general manager instead of the brilliant Dan Evans.

The same Dan Evans that has won all of those NL West division titles for the Dodgers.

Well, how long will it be before we see Moronotti recant those sentiments in one of his columns?

tap, tap, tap..
