I know Alexei, I know

Yes, Virginia, there will be a one-game playoff tomorrow between the Twins and the White Sox. Forgive me for the exuberance, but last week was a long bloody $#*&% week.

And yes, I know its hard to measure the intangibles in baseball, but if ever there was a text-book definition of clutch it was this moment and this moment alone.

  1. Clutch, scrappy, grindy, he showed the fire and the passion, Go Sox. I think Big Game Freddy’s muscle cramp was pretty clutch for his old buddies. Now the Piranhas must leave the Dome of Doom and attempt to win at Cellblock field. Game 163, the tie-breaker will go to the pale hose.

    Thank you melissa. UmpBump wouldn’t be the same without you.

  3. I agree with Melissa, fortunate favors the ChiSox today.

  4. Sarah Green says:

    “This moment alone”?!?

    Don’t tell Big Papi that, Alejandro. He’ll find you where you sleep.

  5. Whitesox 4 life says:

    No, not for this moment alone. He has been clutch for us all season, and that grand slam broke the single season record for most by a rookie

  6. Of course he was clutch, it’s because he has his swagger back and the fire and the passion.
