We won! Finally, we won that damn series against the Rays once and for all! Gavin Floyd and his Big Hairy Balls pitched well, giving up a run in the 6th, and Joe Maddon got ejected after arguing with the ref.
Maddon, I've got some advice for you: if you got a beef with a ref, leave that to the pros, like Bobby Cox!
In scanning the series summaries, I came across this hilarious article on CSN Chicago.
Mere hours after frustratingly suggesting that he blow the ballpark up rather than send out another pitcher to blow a save, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was eager to see how his team would respond to Friday’s disheartening turn of events.
Though I wouldn't go so far as to suggest blowing up the Cell in order to make my point, I do realize that this is Ozzie Guillen talking, and when he opens his mouth, you just never know whats gonna come out.
“There aren’t too many games I can’t sleep,” Guillen said. “I promised my wife, ‘Listen, I’m not going to drink too much anymore. The season just started.’ [So] I had one drink. [Losses are] part of the game.”
*GULP GULP GULP*
And while you're at it:
“If I’m going to come here with my down, ‘Look what happened last night’ [look], I’m going to suck all my team in,” Guillen said. “No. [Instead my attitude should be] ‘Hey, are we ready to fight today?’ If we lose today, we have to be ready to fight tomorrow. If we lose [while] fighting, I can sleep with that, I can live with that.”
Ok, but that's not the kicker.
So, how did Ozzie sleep last night?
“I slept like a baby: I woke up every two hours and started crying.”
Ladies and germs, Ozzie Guillen.
So, looking ahead to next week, the A's are coming up. I smell a sweep!
GO WHITE SOX!!!
