  1. Yes! For 2 reasons, 1) never been to Comiskey and 2) in my humble opinion Dunn never got enough credit for his accomplishments as a RED.

  2. Dunn is absolutely destroying my fantasy team this year. .165 & 30 Ks in 23 games. For the love of god, please turn him around! PLEASE!

      Same here!

  3. I also think Dunn received more nonsense that he deserved. I’d rather have him in RF than Bruce.

      I’d rather have him in LF instead of anyone the Reds run out there.

      I’ve always wondered what it would be like to play Dunn for a game at SS or Center Field.

  4. Dunn may have a tough time against LHP Liriano. It’s not even out of the question that he won’t play. Liriano hasn’t been very good this year, but Dunn’s slump has been just as bad.

    Should be an interesting game. Have a good time!

  5. About 15 years ago, I attended an April night game at the (then) new Comiskey Park. I nearly froze to death and resolved never to attend another night game in Chicago in April.

    I guess this is technically May. But I’d recommend you dress as warmly as possible.🙂

      Oh yeah. That wind off the lake can make Chicago 20 degrees cooler than the suburbs. I remember seeing them play the Yankees and there was an inch of snow before the game. That was back in the days of Dan Pasqua and Harold Baines.

  6. Oh…you mean that guy who had the same potential and turned out the same as Russell Branyan…yeah, have a great time!

  7. The Cell will suprise you at how family friendly it is, unlike the dbags to the North. The food is outstanding (Vienna beef hot dog with grilled onions!) and the neighborhood gentrification has almost reached the park from downtown.
    My fondest memories of the Sox are from the old Comiskey park in the late 70s, early 80s—people peeing off the upper deck, ghetto neighborhoods around the park, the reefer aroma permeating the place on a summer night. I wish somone would build an enclosed stadium nowadays with a true upper deck in the outfield. Like Tiger stadium, Comiskey was the best.

      You really didn’t need to specify when you attended those games. Your evocations of public urination, urban decay and rampant doobs established the time period pretty effectively. All you needed to make it even more specific would have been mentions of tube socks and half-shirts (and that’s just the men!).

      I never went to Old Comiskey (or the new one, though I’ve driven past it many times), but I did go to Tiger Stadium once. That place was one glorious old dump. Our whole section spent the entire game singing a song about Chet Lemon’s name as we loomed over him in center field. I also liked how the first row on the lower deck was literally ground level, in that the seats were below ground level and your sight line was even with the field.

  8. Old Comiskey Park had a real run by park recs feel to it. The place was like one ancient softball diamond or something. Old Tiger Stadium was more regal by comparison.
