White Sox Swap One Dumb Field Name For Another

One thing we can be thankful for is that the NOG (no matter how greedy John Henry becomes) will never sell the "naming rights" to Fenway Park—at least we think they won't. Nah, they wouldn't dare do that. Fans of the other baseball sock team aren't so lucky. Pale Hose owner Jerry Reinsdorf announced that—starting next season—the team will be re-naming U.S. Cellular Field as Guaranteed Rate Field. Oh, that's a big improvement, Jerry! Going from a cut-rate wireless company to a mortgage broker. Nice upgrade! Of course, if Reinsdorf weren't so cash-strapped, he could have kept the original name of the park—New Comiskey Park (or Co-minsky as President Obama likes to call it). Anyway, be thankful for small things.
