The Crosstown Classic is FINALLY here!!!!!!!! Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in with yall after an exciting Sox win. Now the reason I started this blog off with the statement “The Crosstown Classic is finally here” is because despite the fact that we played a series against the Cubs last week the excitement was never really there. I think the reason for that was that Sox/Cubs Round 1 Wrigley was a mid-week series and it took away a lil bit of its luster. But the excitement has been there this weekend baby, in the 1st game of this series the Cubs won(or the umpires won depending on who you talk too lol) a close game 5-4 in a thrilling game but today was the best game of the year between the two clubs. Coming into the game we were expecting a huge pitchers duel between Mark Buerhle & Ryan Dempster but what we got was a back in forth classic. The game started off early when the Sox got on top quickly with a 1-0 lead off a RBI Double by my favorite MLB player Jermaine Dye. Then Scotty Pods started off hot again(I will break down his performance later) extending the Sox lead to 2-0.

 Errors was one of the mini sub plots of this game as Alexei Ramirez basically gave the Cubs 2 runs off his two errors(his  9th & 10th errors of the season by the way) Gordon Beckham also had 2 errors but he is a rookie so he get’s a pass but not Alexei he knows better. So fast foward to the 8th when Alexei redeemed his self a lil bit with his RBI single to tie the game at 7-7. Then on a 2-2 count with 2 outs and runners 1st & 2nd the rookie stepped up to the plate and won the game for my Southsiders & was mobbed at second base by his teammates.
Scotty Pods is having a one of those “Renaissance years” as Shaq likes to call it lol batting well over .300 while going 4 for 5 yesteday with a HR. He has more RBI’s than Milton Bradley who unlike Pods has been playing the whole year. All in all a great win for the Sox as they also gained some ground with the Tigers losing to Houston for the 2nd straight game. Until next time yall….PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!
