Open Thread: Game 86 - A's at Chicago

New, 198 comments

Congratulations to the A's for securing Mark Kotsay through 2008.

Anyway, I'm kind of busy today, what with "Chez Nico II: The Extravaganza" and all, so I'm just pasting the preview from the whitesoxnation.com game thread, written by Chicago's excellent and professional broadcast team. See you after the game...

All right Sox, let's get `em today! Boy we sure got robbed last night by a bunch of bad calls and bloopers. But we have Buehrlsey going for us against a right-hander named Zitto I've never heard of, so we sure have the advantage there. As a special treat for the fans, there's a gold glove 3rd baseman playing in this series. And Eric Chavez is here, too. Oh ho ho ho ho! Hey, I think today's the day I'm finally going to get up the nerve to ask Crede out. Wish me luck, and go Soxies!!!
