Worst White Sox Game Ever! Best Twitter Reactions!

Worst White Sox Game Ever! Best Twitter Reactions!
Today’s White Sox game with the Seattle Mariners was to baseball what tramp stamps are to Tilted Kilt waitresses. Something potentially passable is just ruined by something unsightly. Obviously, I prefer football and basketball to baseball; and educated brunettes to TK staffers. The 24-32 White Sox visited the 26-33 Seattle Mariners for one game of 162 this season; and it was a double header all by itself. As the White Sox entered on a seven game losing streak, this contest obviously had HUGE PLAYOFF IMPLICATIONS! It went into the 14th inning tied at 0-0. I could’ve sworn somebody had turned on soccer. As much physical torture as watching soccer is, at least the sport has Alex Morgan and Hope Solo to look at. Yes, I know Solo is guano crazy. This White Sox game could be summarized by Darth Helmet in Spaceballs: “no, it’s not what you think. It’s much, much worse!” The White Sox scored 5 runs in the top of the 14th inning only to…wait for it…see the Mariners tie it with 5 in the bottom half of the 14th. The White Sox eventually ended up winning 7-5 in 16 innings. Time of game: 5 hours, 42 minutes. Or the equivalent of three games pitched by former White Sox ace Mark Buerhle. This elicited some hysterical reactions on Twitter from White Sox experts and local sports media. Time for one of my tweet fueled stories...

White Sox a tad overzealous in All-Star Campaigning

White Sox a tad overzealous in All-Star Campaigning
The Chicago White Sox are really OVERDOING this all-star voting aggression thing. It’s an exhibition game, CALM DOWN. Yes, it “matters” when it comes to World Series home field (dumbest rule in all of sports, yes I agree) but here’s two big reasons Sox fans shouldn’t care about “winning” in a practice game to get WS home field: 1.) The Sox are way better on the road than at home 2.) if they get past the Tigers and Indians, they’re not getting past the AL East or AL West champ this year. And this vote is not particularly final, since most of these guys will get on as injury replacements anyway. This year will probably the same thing. Look at what Sox closer Addison Reed tweeted...

And you know how much vitriol he has for the umpires- this isn’t a breaking development either. (See this Joe West rant) But today, he truly out-did himself in both categories. What happened...

Sun-Times Columnist Joe Cowley publishes Sexist Tweets, Vanishes from Twitter
Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist and long time White Sox beat reporter Joe Cowley has long been one of the most colorful follows on Twitter. He rivals Ozzie Guillen, or perhaps even Borat, in the candor department. But this time, he’s gone a little too candid. Cowley went WAY  over the line making a ton of... Read more »
