Just what are they eating in Chicago, anyways?

This one has been sitting in the can for a few days, but is certainly well worth mentioning, however late it be. All I can say about those tough guys in Chi Town is WOW! Rewind a little back to season's opening day... Mark Buerhle gave us the play of the year on opening day! (Editors note: I searched high and low for the video, but it is now official property of MLB, which has the slowest web site on the planet...so if you are one of the three people who have NOT seen the play, I urge you to hunt it down and watch it a hundred times). For everybody else, we all know this as the play that spawned "The Buehrle Meter" that has become a staple on ESPN. It was that good. Foreshadowing that he flipped that ball to Konerko?

So now last week, when things didn't look like they could be any Buehrlier, in the first innings of a matchup with Carl Pavano and the Minnesota Twins, takes one to THE FACE, stays in the game, takes his base, and then in his very next at bat, stroll up to home plate, puffy lip leading the way, and proceeds to knock THE VERY NEXT PITCH right out of the park! Now THAT is Buehrle. Hat's off to the man for adding another reason to why baseball is great fun...now go get some ice for that lip, kid.

whoops, I scanned his card twice....oh well, he deserves it.
