    Sparks were flying at U.S. Cellular Field last night, and surprisingly, it had nothing to do with Ozzie Guillen or the White Sox inability to get their offense going against Tigers’ starting pitcher Justin Verlander.  Instead, the sparks that could be seen flying behind home plate in the bottom of the eighth inning had everything […]
