Henry Blanco’s third inning home run staked Mark Prior to a 1-0 lead and propelled the Cubs to a 4-3 home victory of the annoying Chicago White Sox. Blanco caught most of the 126 pitches Prior threw in a complete game victory. After the game, Prior took time to praise his catcher.
“Everybody knows how good Whitey is,” Prior said. “He calls a great game. Much better than that piece of crap Michael Barrett. I think Henry should catch every game. And I think you should all go to his fan club at Desipio.com and buy lots of Hank White Fan Club Merchandise!”
