The Buehrle Bile File: Game 120 Preview

Odalis Perez, L, 4-4, 6.54 ERA for the Kansas City Royals


Mark Buehrle, L, 9-10, 4.87 ERA for the ChiSox

The Buehrle Bile File writers would like to warn White Sox fans about the filth of mediocrity. How it infects a group of people. How it dispirits them. How it drags them down. How it haunts their thoughts and dreams and eventually renders them useless and impotent…

But not this group of bloggers.

We like to think of ourselves in the scene from Animal House where Bluto starts listing the names of the Alpha Beta's he's gonna kill...

(The names have been changed to implicate the guilty parties.)

James: What the fuck happened to the White Sox pitchers I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you James, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Buehrle, he's a dead man! Garcia, dead! Vazquez...

A bloody and bruised Jeeves interrupts: Dead! James’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

James: We're just the bloggers to do it.

DickdaStick: Let’s do it.

Pander: LET’S DO IT!

All the ChiSox Blog Posters: LET’S DO IT!

Bile-style pitchers, please make us be wrong or your doom awaits.

As always, readers, post your picks to click in the comments section.

Calling all commenters...

We have an official ChiSox Blog vote being called.

With two recaps written, two differnt schools of thought were postulated concerning a Player of the Game for last night's debacle.

Pander has one view, I have another. Please check out both recaps and decide for yourselves. Then add your thoughts to this comments section.

I applaud Pander for his prescience even though he might break an arm patting his own back. (Just tweaking yah, bro!)

The consensus pick will be the winner, and may the best White Sox win.

Programming note: today's game is a 1:05 PM start.

My Pick to Click...let's try this again...Brian Anderson.

Nah, Jonathon Kelly picked Paulie.

Meanwhile, in tomorrow's game, I pick Tadahito Iguchi. I have my reasons!

Pander...I'm all for looking ahead, but what about a pick to click for today's game? :-)

Today, tomorrow, forever. When I pick Tadahito, we win (even if he doesn't play! RE: Alex Cintron). So until I say differently, Gooch is my PtC.

...what do you mean, "I'm overly superstitious?"
