Living in the New York area, I have to settle for watching the Sox on the Extra Innings package and on MLB.com, reading all the Chicago papers online and following many of the Sox websites.
But today I’ll be at the Cell–the first time seeing the Sox in person since I spent about a week in spring training. I’ll be attending with college friend Mike Griffin, another Sox fanatic, who was with me during the glorious 2005 postseason. I’ll be at the Cell on Thursday as well–with boyhood friend Gary Marks, a tried and true Sox fan who was also with me in ’05.
Note of the day: With his 3-for-4 performance yesterday, Gordon Beckham enters today’s game with a .296 BA. Pretty impressive after the sub-par start.
