Some good pub: While the Cubs get bashed daily--and for good reason--on Sports Illustrated's Web site (see below), the White Sox are featured (http://premium.si.cnn.com/pr/subs/siexclusive/2005/pr/subs/siexclusive/05/09/whitesox0516/index.html) this week in the magazine. The story by Michael Farber won't be news to Sox fans. It recounts the Sox's fast start, mentions their starting pitching and how they've been able to amass the league's best record without the benefit of leading in any offensive category. It's still a good read.
The most interesting thing I found in the story was manager Ozzie Guillen's e-mail address, ozzieguillen13@hotmail.com, which he includes at the end of his weekly column (http://www.eluniversal.com/2005/04/23/beigl_art_23202K.shtml) in the Venezuelan newspaper "El Universal." (http://www.eluniversal.com/) Drop Ozzie a line. Anyone who gets a response from Oswaldo, please share it with us. You can copy the text of the above column and get a literal English translation on this Web site. (http://www.freetranslation.com/)

By the way if you actually copy and paste Ozzie's column into the translator site (really cool...) and read it you see where he explains WHY he responded to Magglio's comments to the media the way he did. It was an explanation that I don't recall having read locally. Also having Ozzie's e-mail address is cool.

Oh good. Now I can tell Ozzie about my million dollar idea for my "Jump to Conclusions" game and see if I can get funding to mass produce it.
