On this date four years ago, the White Sox won the World Series.  Where were you?

White Sox link roundup:

  • Dayan Viciedo has been pulled from the Arizona Fall League with an undisclosed injury, per ESPN's Jason Grey (h/t to chisox2691 for asking the question).  Update: Merkin says it's inflammation in his throwing elbow.  No word as of yet on his replacement. Could be an opportunity for Brent Morel. Update: And it is Morel who will be coming out of the Instructional League to replace him.
  • JJ continues his player reviews with Jayson Nix.
  • The always entertaining mailbag, this time from Scott Merkin.
  • Continuing the Sporcle bender, there's a White Sox first round draft pick quiz.

Other links:

  • Ozzie Montana's heroes Rinku and Dinesh have had their story purchased by Sony.  
  • Steve Phillips has been fired by ESPN.  Moral? The Clinton Rule: If you're going to risk your job, at least do it with someone attractive.  Maybe they'll put Orel Hershiser in the booth with Miller and Morgan now.
  • The Indians hired Manny Acta.
  • And Momma Guerrero will be an important factor in Vlad's destination this offseason.
