Comedian David Cross, of Mr. Show fame, has been making the media rounds with partner Bob Odenkirk to promote their new book, “Hollywood Said No!“. The duo appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last week and Cross wound up with WGN’s Len Kasper and Jim DeShaies this afternoon for a little banter in the top of the seventh inning before singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” as per Wrigley Field tradition.

Following his rendition, Cross humbly addressed the crowd at Wrigley, saying, “That was awful. Thank you very much. I’m so sorry. Next time, guys. Next time.”

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms a report from journalist Américo Celado that White Sox catcher Welington Castillo will be suspended 80 games for violating baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement. Castillo was believed to have used a steroid, but according to Rosenthal, the substance was not a steroid. More details should come on Thursday.

Castillo, 31, entered Wednesday’s action batting .270/.314/.477 with six home runs and 15 RBI in 118 plate appearances. He has gotten the bulk of the work behind the plate, backed up by Omar Narváez.

Castillo’s absence will likely prompt the White Sox to call up Kevan Smith from Triple-A Charlotte. Smith battled an ankle injury in March and April, so he got a late start to the season. In 102 PA at Triple-A, he has hit .283/.343/.457.
