Pre-Game Report

JERRY'S HEAD

Starter Mark Buehrle had $15,000 chopped off his contract last spring when he refused to sign at the amount the Sox specified.  Unlike a free agent or arbitration-eligible ballplayer, the Sox ace hasn't earned the right to any leverage in contract negotiation. 

As a result, Buehrle is the biggest bargain in baseball.  That is good news for the Sox, bad news for Buehrle, and worse news for the opposition.

Buehrle cruised through the Texas line up Wednesday, allowing just one run and four hits in an seven inning effort, beating the Rangers 5-3.

Only God's rain delay prevented Buehrle from completing the game.  Only prepubescent girls would argue that he isn't the best pitcher in the city of Chicago.  Yes, Chip Caray would argue the point too, but we're tossing him in with the other prepubescent girls.

Once upon a time, the Sox actually trailed in this game. Texas managed to string together two hits in the third inning and jump on top 1-0.  Buehrle didn't have to wait too long for the Sox to answer.

The Sox started the fifth with two walks and loaded the bases on a throwing error.  That set the stage for star leadoff man, Ken Lofton.  The Pride of East Chicago split the fielders for a double into right center, plating two runs, and the Sox were in the lead.  A Tony Graffanino sacrifice brought home another run, and the Sox were up 3-1.

Sox bats were smoldering again in the eighth.   Doubles by Magglio Ordonez and Carlos Lee brought home another run, and another Texas error brought home another.  It was 5-1 when the rain came.

For some silly reason, the umpires didn't just call this game and give it to the Sox.  Since neither of the teams playing was named "Cowboys", nobody in Texas would have much cared anyway.  So it was hardly important, nor viewed by more than a handful of Texans who bothered to stick around, that the Rangers got to Keith Foulke in the ninth for two face-saving runs.  Herbert Perry's dinger made the score look a bit more respectable.  Nobody in the Lone Star State cares, and neither do Sox Fans.

A matinee on Thursday, and then off to Disneyland!
