Shouldn't He Be Playing for Chicago?
- Magglio Ordonez walked slowly out of the batter's box to watch the ball's flight Saturday night, and then he raised his right fist to confirm his redemption.
After watching his former White Sox teammates win the World Series one year after he left, Ordonez will make the same trip after launching a dramatic three-run home run - his second homer of the game - with two out in the ninth inning that vaulted the Detroit Tigers to a 6-3 comeback win and completed a four-game sweep of Oakland in the American League Championship Series.
Unfortunately, we are cursed with the uncommon disease of liking hockey. Uncommon in that maybe 10,000 people in this town even follow the game anymore (Blackhawks lost tonight 4-3 to hated St. Louis). We are aware of enough baseball history in this town to wonder if this wasn't one of the more boneheaded moves by the Sox. Anyone care to enlighten us?
