that sounds like a blast, make sure to let us know what type of reception he gets though its not hard to predict

that being said I must say that when i went to see a chisox game at us cellular I feared for my life. If i were a chicagoan (and not a reds fan) id def be a cubs fan haha.

I have tickets for Aug. 23rd & Sep. 26th. I am a diehard Reds fan, but I attend about 3 games a year at Sox park. I live 170 miles from both US Cellular Field & Great American Ball Park. I have enjoyed their ballpark & their passionate fans every time (& their winning ball club). I have never "feared for my life" around US Cellular Field, but I don't linger around after a game either.

Sounds like a waste of time and money. You're a Chi Sox fan?

The area around Yankee Stadium is much, much nicer than the area around Commisky.

not in general.. the immediate area might be.. but once you get farther than 1 mile out.. i would take south side of chicago over bronx.. good thing for NY.. subways right there bring you right to midtown..

Have any of you ever been to Bridgeport?....its a nice area...middle class working people live there...im 3 blocks from the stadium....

Don't be surprised if you see number 609 tonight.

Yeah, looks like that game was pretty boring...

Gee, Batting Junior 7th - and he didn't throw a fit?!?!?

Glad we batted him 3rd all season long, even if he was the only other guy OPS-ing over .800 not named Dunn until Bruce showed up, he was lucky to be the 5th best hitter in our lineup.

At least we've got THAT one Albatross gone.
Unfortunately we're still stuck with Brandon Philips and his .670 OPS (and getting lower every day) against RHP to deal with being penciled in the cleanup spot.

As one poster in another thread noted - WHO else in MLP has a CleanUp Hitter with 16 HR's and 64 RBI??!?!? Add in an OPS of .767 and I doubt anyone has LESS impressive numbers.

Just for the recor,d I sat next to the USA assistant coach the other night in the last Olympic warmup game against Canada, and we talked ball, I asked him about OPS, and he started laughing at me and said "oh, your one of those guys"....

Jr received a standing "O" his first AB as expected....
1 for 6 with 3 K'S.....Also misplayed a ball that went for a triple...not a great home start for him, but it was a good comeback win for the Sox.....He also received a standing "O" From the CF bleacher crowd when the Sox took the field in the top of the first.

He's one of the greatest to EVER play the game.. i would hope they wouldn't boo.. especially since they basically gave a bag of used bp balls to get him..
