Games and Moments
April 11, 1969
vs. Seattle Pilots
at Sick's Stadium

Major League baseball expanded in 1968, voting to add two new teams to each league, starting in 1969. The National League got new franchises in San Diego and Montreal (nosing out a bid for a new Milwaukee team by used car salesman Allen H. "The Outsider" Selig) and the American League got new teams in Kansas City and Seattle.

The expansion was done thanks in part to Missouri...

Tommy Davis

Tommy Davis was one of the star outfielders of the National league in the 1960s. He broke in with one AB for the 1959 Dodgers, then stuck with them the next year, becoming one of the main cogs in their contending teams.

In 1962, Davis led the NL with 153 RBI and won the batting title with an average of .346. The next year he won the NL batting title again with an average of .326. In 1965 he suffered a badly broken ankle sliding in to a base....

Games and Moments September 13 & 14, 1967

Games and Moments:
September 13 & 14, 1967
vs. Cleveland Indians
at White Sox Park

A September 10 headline in the Sun-Times announced that the Sox were all but dead, about to fall out of the race.

The Sox responded to this by posting a doubleheader shutout that day, highlighted by Joel Horlen's now classic no-hitter. And then...they dropped three straight to fall three games back, in 4th place. That's where they were when they took the field on the...

Sneering Chicago Sports Media Ass-Greatest Hits

Posted 05-04-2014 at 04:21 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)
Updated 04-26-2015 at 01:41 PM by TommyJohn

Way back in the olden days of 2003, I created a WSI habitue known as the Sneering Chicago Sports Media Ass. The SCSMA would show up from time to time to sneer at White Sox fans about how lousy, horrible and unloved their team was, as compared to the great franchise up north that hadn't won anything in going on 95 years.

The inspiration for this character was twofold-the first was Steve Rosenbloom, the normally cynical grouch who has written sports columns for both papers in town,...

White Sox-Cubs trivia

Posted 02-17-2012 at 05:53 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)
Updated 08-04-2012 at 11:08 AM by TommyJohn

I was listening to Dan McNeil on the radio the other day and he was listing players who played for both the Cubs and White Sox. I was only half interested because he went on about how the list contains about 200 or so names. Yes, it does. So it got me tp thinking about creative lists of Cubs-Sox players, the guys on the list who have a unique distinction about their careers. So I decided to list players for the Cubs and White Sox who belong to some special sub group.
