Great news: The Heckler's June issue has hit the streets. As usual, it's packed full of unbelievable Chicago sports news.
White Sox skipper Ozzie Guillen always looks forward to facing the Cubs this time of year. The crosstown matchups not only re-fuel his bitter rivalry, but give him incentive to berate his North Side adversaries.
When the Sox head up to the Friendly Confines in mid-June, there will be more at stake than mere baseball bragging rights in Chicago. The winner of the series will also take 16th place in Tribune columnist Phil Rogers' MLB power rankings.
On the eve of the Cubs-Sox series at Wrigley, the New York Times reported that former North and South side slugger Sammy Sosa was one of the 104 major league players to test positive for steroids in 2003. Zero percent of anyone across the nation were surprised by the news.
Ozzie Guillen may have to stop complaining about the dirty, decrepit state of Wrigley Field, since it has given him a new pet. The Sox skipper adopted a rat he found in the dugout there when the South Siders visited the Friendly Confines back in mid-June.
