Issued a challenge to come up with a new, six-week feature, we took it on with this simple snapshot of some of the top scenes from each week of the season. Enjoy our last edition, giving Schoolly_D one last chance to employ Roger Daltrey. You may already have seen several of these highlights, but here’s our most eye-popping moments over the last week, with the White Sox winning five of six vs. Detroit and Toronto!
Simplisafe Home Run Robbery Citation: Adam Engel (June 6)
Just five innings into his major league season, Engel recorded his first larceny. Not his most graceful home run steal, but his pirouette at the wall was still pretty deft.
Universal Pictures presents the Five Feet Apart Honor: Andrew Vaughn (June 8)
Vaughn clocks a ball vs. Toronto just five feet shorter in distance than his game-tying home run, but deep enough to score the eventual game-winner.
Zanies Laugh to Keep From Crying Award Award: José Abreu (June 9)
In a loss that featured a bunch of bad stuff, including Nick Madrigal tearing his hamstring and Yasmani Grandal being thrown “out” at home plate, let’s go with Pito getting clear-cut by some flying timber, courtesy of the home plate ump Erich Bacchus.
Tentative Decisions, presented by CBS Records: Danny Mendick (June 10)
Getting his first start at second base post-Madrigal injury, Danny Mendick ceded this catch to Abreu — who made a fabulous, back-to-home snag.
Skittles Taste the Rainbow Award: Danny Mendick (June 11)
Really, the winner is Robbie Grossman, for that throw, unable to get a tagging runner from mid-left field. Perfect slide from Mendick though, and no wasted movement.
Ras Tafari Ever Living Ever Faithful Debut Citation, presented by Island Records: Brian Goodwin (June 12)
Helluva White Sox debut, Brian!
