Open Thread- Party on the South Side: Royals (44-91) at Sox (85-51)

New, 6 comments

All afternoon, America's Sporting Fans have turned their eyes anxiously to the clock on the wall, waiting nervously for the evening to come so that they can start watching Royals-Sox at the Cell. The Royals send Jose Lima (5-13, 6.56 ERA) to the hill against Orlando Hernandez (8-7, 4.92 ERA). Just where did the nickname "El Duque" come from, and why didn't anyone ever try anything clever like "Magic" or "Disney World" or something like that? Actually, I kinda can picture the White Sox broadcasters, particularly Hawk or Ed Farmer sorta making a joke like that. Not Denny though, no, not at all.
