The White Sox sent Joe Borchard, object of many fans’ scorn, to the Mariners for lefty reliever Matt Thornton. U.S.S. Mariner has detailed analysis if you’re interested.
I was reading the Tribune this weekend, and it had a section where fans explained what to do when you visit U.S. Cellular. One suggestion was along the lines of:
1. Order a polish and an MGD.
2. Heckle Joe Borchard.
3. Have another polish.
So who’s the new whipping boy?
