The compelling question for today: Did Schoolly_D arrive in time/stand in line to snag his Hawk nesting dolls? And was there a mini-Methup with he and Lurker Laura?
A pretty sweet video from the White Sox, honoring the Hawk:
"He is our summer playlist. That's what we listen to – Ken 'Hawk' Harrelson calling baseball games."— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) September 2, 2018
Thank you, Hawk! We will miss you. pic.twitter.com/BmKpMqisdS
It’s been easier to not miss Hawk in these later seasons, but, bottom line, I’ll still miss him.
Also, in honor of Hawk Day, MLB Network reruns its documentary “Hawk: The Colorful Life of Ken Harrelson” tonight at 7 p.m. CST.
Anyway, here’s another highlight today:
R/T CONTEST— WGNTV (@WGNTV) September 1, 2018
To honor Hawk Harrelson's illustrious career, the @Whitesox commissioned this cool Hawk nesting doll. R/T for a chance to win one. #Whitesox #RedSox at 6 tonight on WGN. #HawkDay pic.twitter.com/kI13Mhhw78
And Campbell Soup Kid/Dennis the Menace/rapscallion A.J. Pierzynski joins Hawk Harrelson in the booth today, as part of Hawk Harrelson Day at the ballpark. A.J. has said one of his goals is to get Hawk to cry some during the game. Wouldn’t be surprised if another goal is to get Hawk to cuss on air. Or, once and for all, publicly declare A.J. as his favorite “adopted son” over Paulie Konerko, Darrin Jackson, or any number of other adoptees Hawk has claimed over the years.
So, Welington Castillo is back with the White Sox, proving that, yes, clubhouse mentoring, guidance, leadership and character is an important part of the White Sox rebuild.
Charlotte added a southpaw from the Atlanta Braves org, Tyler Watson. Not sure what that’s about, but I’m too Eloy disheartened at the moment to scope out the Knights roster and see “Jiménez” still on it.
A fun little nugget unearthed today, as well, for those of you who love records and stuff:
IF Yoán Moncada and Matt Davidson played in all 28 remaining White Sox games ...— South Side Sox (@SouthSideSox) September 2, 2018
AND kept on their current K pace (1.49/g and 1.37/g) ...
AND *ZERO* other White Sox players whiff again this season ...
the Sox will break their all-time record for team strikeouts in a season.
The #WhiteSox have gone 12-6 since 8/14, tied with the Yankees for the second-best record in the American League behind Tampa Bay (12-5).— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) September 2, 2018
