Will someone remind Roy Oswalt that there is a season called "summer" in Chicago.

"I don't think they should step in and tell us what to do in our field, because it's our home-field advantage now," Oswalt said. "I think Chicago had their advantage there -- cold, windy. They've been playing in it all year; we haven't. So let's bring it back home and give the advantage to us now."

This sure was a cold summer in Chicago, Roy.

Yeah ! That Sunday home game against the Red Sox in July was FREEZING ! I had 3-4 layers of clothes on, and drank about 10 hot chocolates.

I hope that is up in the White Sox lockerroom right now.

I think Oswalt is in for a rude awakening. Our bats got really hot when we went to Anaheim.

I'm sure playing in 40 degree weather with a steady drizzle of rain was a huge advantage for the Sox players.

They are obviously not human so it was only Houston players that had trouble staying warm and dry.

D'oh! Speed reading gets me. Doesn't change my answer of 0, though.

That season is always the best day of the year.

Seriously, I remember sweating my behind off watching game 1 against the Red Sox.
