– And today’s Chief of the Day gets awarded to Alex Rios! Some fun facts…
- Rios is off to a red-hot start with the White Sox, posting a .284/.344/.505 line in 51 games. He’s swatted 10 homers and stolen eight bases. He’s 16th in the American league in slugging percentage and 17th in WAR (according to ESPN).
- In 46 games with the 2004 Chiefs, he sported a .259/.292/.373 line – not great, but good enough to get him up to Toronto that season.
- He inspired this from Hawk Harrelson.
Chiefs and G-Braves at 7:00 tonight. See you there.
