Why Does Chicago Even Bother Anymore?

The Good

0-10 final score is pretty good. But the story here is Sergio Mitre, who threw 6.1 innings of one-hit baseball and would've pitched more had he not taken a liner off his catching arm.

The Bad

Remember when the Chi-Sox took three of four from us a couple weeks ago? WTF?

The Ugly

Chicago pitching takes this one, and that cheating Pierzynski who hit poor Mitre in order to force him from the game.

Single-Payer System

A-Rod continues to love the kids, hitting his 23rd home run against the dreaded Black Sox. Chants of "1919" erupted throughout the game.

Jorge Posada 17hr = $17.00
Hideki Matsui 23hr = $23.00
Derek Jeter 17hr = $17.00
Mark Teixeira 31hr = $31.00
Nick Swisher 21hr = $21.00
Robinson Cano 21hr = $21.00
Johnny Damon 23hr = $23.00
Melky Cabrera 11hr = $11.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 23hr = $23.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 5hr = $5.00
Jerry Hairston Jr. 2hr = $2.00
Total = $199.00

If you are interested in Johnny Damon's Homerun Club or the Children's Health Fund you can find links to both at the top right hand corner of our page.

Correction: Mitre was hit on his throwing arm (his right), not his catching arm. Thanks a lot Suzyn Waldman and John Sterling. They literally watched the replay from the booth and repeatedly stated it was Mitre's left arm that was hit. Wow.

This world is a weird place.
Mitre almost pitched a perfect game while Cliff Lee gave up 6 runs (3 HRs)in 5 innings.
And could somebody please tell Ozzie's boys they're supposed to be Major League players?

Were there really chants of 1919 throughout the game?

Sorry Hunter, I may have made that one up. But still, there should've been.
