Hot Shit College Student writes, “South Side Sox deserves the credit for still reading articles that have nothing to do with trading for Lastings Milledge. Amazingly enough this Boone Logan interview settled two bets I made at the bar last night.” From The Daily Southtown’s Nathaniel Whalen :

What book are you reading right now?

I don’t read any books.

Harder to kill a cow or strike out a major league hitter?

It’s harder to kill a cow. I’ve never killed one. I don’t think I could do it. It’s just, it sounds weird — I’m a hunter, I do hunt, I shoot animals on my ranch all the time — it’s just … I don’t know. I like cows, I guess. I couldn’t kill one.

All right. If the team’s stranded on a deserted island, who’s the first one to get eaten?

Who gets to choose?


Oh, man. I’d say, geez, who would we eat first? I’d say A.J. (Pierzynski), but he’d probably be a little bitter.

(After an exchange with reliever Nick Masset, who’s sitting close by and offers his own opinions, Logan changes his answer.)

Yeah. (Tadahito) Iguchi. I like sushi. That’s a good answer. He’d probably taste like sushi.

What’s the funniest thing a fan has ever said to you?

Not much bright stuff coming out of the stands. They’re just a bunch of idiots.

Boone tossed a scoreless inning today in relief of Jon Garland (7 IP, 4 hits, no earned run) in Chicago’s 3-1 defeat of K.C., a result that moved the White Sox a half game ahead of the Royals at the bottom of the AL Central. Bobby Jenks earned his 22nd save on the same day he was named to the AL All-Star squad, the only member of Ozzie G’s underachievers to be represented on the roster.
