This is currently on ESPN.com:

"White Sox leadoff dirtball Scott Podsednik (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6489) crashed a walkoff home run off Astros bullpen monster Brad Lidge (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6913) on Sunday night. On a night when Lake Michigan turned upside-down and fell on U.S. Cellular Field. In Game 2 of the World Series, with a million lives riding on it."

Dirtball? Where does that come from? :mad:

It has been well-documented that Podsednik is, in fact, made of dirt.:rolleyes:

"...a pitch that clearly hit the bat of White Sox 3-hole hitter Jermaine Dye (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=5610) was mysteriously ruled a hit-by-pitch.

That loaded the bases and extended the inning. "

Exactly how did that extend the inning? Dye was certainly not out. Sometimes I don't think people go back and read what they wrote before its published. Hard to imagine that people knowingly let themselves look like morons. Marriotti excluded, of course...

If I were to say anything I would put it as he is always dirty for sliding. But if not, what the hell is that.

Podsednik is a dirtball, that's why we got him... He's a grinder, he gets on base and makes things happen and he's not a flashy "I need $12 million to feed my family" kind of guy.

Regardless, it was more to set up the drama between Scott Podsednik and 1 home run since last year vs. Brad Lidge, the unquestion master of the Unhittability.

Anyways, Sox win, who cares what Jasyon Stark thinks? :bandance:

Unless they changed the rules of baseball, a foul ball would've "extended" the
inning.

It's not truly a win unless 100% of the earthly media is totally biased towards the Sox. Don't you know that?

Apparently they really don't check what they write before it's published:

Stark: "It's a sign of just what a crazy role these White Sox are on."

Crazy role?

Yeah, obviously his spell check let that one go as it's spelled right, it's his brain that missed it because it's the wrong word. Go figure...

:bandance: Jayson Stark is just pissed his Phillies choked and is sour graping a team he wished he could root for. Like his Phils never had any serendipity in 80? I recall a certain catch by a "dirtball" named Pete Rose.....


I'm lovin having to listen to the Easterners try to make sense of Our Sox and We Palehose Heads considering all they've ever known has been predicated by North Side Nausea.

Go Go Go You White Sox!!!!!!!! Chicago's proud of you !!!!

I'm sure if Jayson Stark took one look at Lisa Dergan (Podsednik's fiancee), he'd be begging to be a dirtball.

I agree. I think it meant he's a dirtball in the same way that a pitcher throws "junk" or "filth," or in the way that David Eckstein is a "pest."

I thought the reference was to the lack of homeruns he hits--most of his balls stay on the dirt.
