The series with the A's would have been off to a kicker start on Monday, given how strong Mark Buehrle had been pitching (he had a no-hitter going till the 6th!), but none other than Juan "Pierror" Pierre had to bumble a catch and lose the game in extra innings. A's: 2, Sox: 1 in 10 innings.
Today, both the Sox and Pierre had a better game. In fact, Alexei "the Cuban Missile" Ramirez, knocked in a solo home run with 2 outs in the bottom of the 10th to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat from the A's! Karma's a bitch, isn't it?!
Rumors have it that Ozzie's job is on the line. Personally, I don't see this rumor having any sort of backbone to it. Kenny would never let his most precious asset go away like that. In spite of his Harvard degree, canning Ozzie would forever net Kenny this title in Chicago:
Surely my GM is PR-savvy enough to know not to pull off such a move and not expect some sort of blowback.
Besides, if Ozzie got canned, Kenny should expect to feel the wrath of Oney Guillen, Ozzie's son. Oney is notorious for criticizing his dad's players, and more than once, it got his dad in trouble.

But hey, should Ozzie become unemployed, it'll give him more time to teach Oney how to blast people effectively on Twitter.
Game 3's tomorrow! Sit back, relax, and strap it down; White Sox baseball is on its way in approximately 24 hours.
GO WHITE SOX!!!
