Remembering April 28...or not

Just asked White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen before the resumption of the suspended game if he had any recollections of the April 28 game that is being finished tonight. He didn't either.

"The only thing I remember was Alexei Ramirez' hit to win yesterday's game,'' Guillen said. "That's a lot of vodka between that game (April 28) and today's game. You just keep everything from that game -- the lineups and everything -- to make sure everything is right."

Guillen could be forgiven for not remembering much after Sunday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. A.J. Pierzynski was involved in another controversial baserunning play in extra innings, and benefitted from a questionable obstruction call by umpire Doug Eddings -- the same umpire who made the call on Pierzynski's game-changing dash after a disputed "dirt" third strike in the 2005 playoffs against the Angels.

Strangely enough, it happened on the day after Melvin Mora was called out after reaching base on a dropped third strike -- the victim of a new rule that came out of the Pierzynski playoff controversy. Want one more coincidence: Rays coach Joe Maddon was the Angels bench coach in 2005.
