Breaking the streak in Chicago: White Sox-O's

I give myself some credit here. I could tell in warmups that Black Jack McDowell didn’t have it. It was a Friday night at Old Comiskey Park in Chicago and the Orioles were in town. Of course something was clearly different on April 29, 1988. My team had no wins to report. The once best team in the world was now 0-21. How pathetic.

But again, McDowell didn’t seem to have it as Cal Ripken Jr was on base in the opening frame when Eddie Murray drove him home with just his second homer of the season.

What a great trade for Cuellar and Astros series review

There some signs to his upcoming stardom. Like the year we won the World Series in 1966. Off in Houston was a Cuban left-hander named Mike Cuellar. He won just 12 games for the Astros but his ERA was a sparkling 2.22. On June 25, the Astros were in the Astrodome and the Cardinals were in town. The great Lou Brock struck out 3 times that night. Cuellar struck out 15 that evening and went home with a 3-2 win. Read more about What a great trade for Cuellar and Astros series review

Weeks has played very well at triple-A Norfolk batting .500 with two triples in four games.  Weeks can play all around the infield and the outfield and can bring speed.
