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

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.
