2) The stupid Royals continue to annoy the shit out of the ChiSox, winning 14-3 on Sunday and handing the Sox their 6th loss in 8 games. That puts the Sox a half game back on the Twins (who welcomed back a healthy FriLiano and won easily) and 2 back on the wildcard. In addition to the 14 runs, the Twins also got some hits on AJP (who is starting to look a lot like Elton John with his stupid hair dye) and we're probably looking at some suspensions next week. The best part of the game was Ozzie going ballistic on the ump... absolutely out of control. He looked like a cartoon character, minus the smoke out of his ears.
2) Steve Smith was suspended for 2 regular season games for going Chuck Liddell on teammate Ken Lucas during practice, breaking Lucas' nose and marking the third time he's gone apeshit on a teammate. Most importantly, he'll miss the Bears/Panthers game in week 2 which is great news since he really enjoys making our D look like swiss cheese:
3) Ken Griffey Jr looks good and plays good in a Sox uni:
4) Paul Konerko is FUCKING TERRIBLE.
