There was the homer, but Cabrera just killed that, so sometimes you tip your hat. Then there was the third, and maybe I'm in the minority here, but it was just pissing rain when that inning came around and it was the walks that killed him and I think that he was walking guys because a) couldn't get a good grip on teh ball and b) had no footing. Once they fixed the mound with that diamnond dry he looked good and that double he gave up to Abreu was again in driving rain. So, I think he looked damn good all things considering.

whitesoxfan
04-24-2008, 11:52 PM
We pounded The Hutt in the 9th. AJ nearly took him deep, TCQ nearly took him deep, and then Crede fought off a tough 0-2 pitch and placed it perfectly for the game-winner. I'm sure Yankee fans are cussing Girardi out to no end for not going to Rivera in that situation.

Very nice win to salvage 1 of 3. Let's pound the hell out of the birds.

04-24-2008, 11:52 PM
Man, I thought that game was so lost. I stopped watching for a bit when the rain delay hit. Gavin looked like ass at that point, and I figured that there'd be more of the same if the game continued. I came back to the game to see we were up 6-3, only to watch us blow that lead. Thank God we had something left in the tank late.

When you see the box score tomorrow one might think Floyd threw bad but he really didn't. If JD gets a better throw to get Giambi maybe we don't wait for Crede with the heroics.

If JD wasn't so slowwww out there.

Still, Floyd got behind in the count, and then made the mistake to Cabrera.

Given that he pitched three innings, took an hour off, and came back for three more, I'd say he pitched pretty well. He looks like a whole new man out there. Sort of the way Garland was suddenly oozing confidence in 2005.

I was really surprised to see Crede celebrate after seeing it got down because Quentin was chugging along and Cabrera has a cannon in CF. A throw on the money would have made it reallllllly close. Glad that didn't happen though.

On a side note, I'm ecstatic that Gavin appears to have great control of his changeup. I hardly remember him throwing it last year. If he can continue that, that's 2 plus pitches (curve, change) to go along with his fastball.

Now, lets take at least 3, if not 4, from BALT and their weak ass, unproven pitching staff.

It happened to be Joe's 8th game winning hit in his career. 8 is the magic number. That had to be worth the wait. SuperJoe strikes again!!..and TCQ is clutch also.

Does that include the 2005 ALCS? I know it doesn't include the first game I saw Joe Crede play. The game didn't count. That was in Tucson in a 1999 exhibition game against the Cubs. Crede came up to hit in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied and got a game-ending double.

I went to White Sox games, mostly weekend games, from mid-2000 to mid-2003, and Joe Crede ended two games.

On Sunday, Sept. 8, 2002, the Sox were down 6-3 to the Indians going into the bottom of the ninth, hadn't scored since the fifth, when Frank Thomas hit a two-out, three-run homer to tie the game. After two walks and a hit batsman, Riske relieved Baez and Crede followed with a single to right to end the game. That was the day that Royce Clayton wasn't wearing his spikes when called upon to pinch run -- his last day with the Sox.

On Sunday, May 25, 2003, in the 12th inning against the Tigers, Crede hit a two-out, three-run homer to end it.

There are people who will tell you Crede isn't a clutch hitter, that we only remember the times he has come through in the clutch. It's true that he doesn't always get a game winning hit when he is in a position to do so. In the 12-inning win, for example, he led off the 11th by grounding out. But the reason I remember Crede hitting game winning hits is because he has a knack for the game-winning hit.

Seriously, this is a game I was so disgusted with that I turned off the TV and went to bed, but turned on the XM radio and listened from bed.

I hate rain delays. But I hate the Yankees more. Everything about them screams "We are the center of the universe." From the umps making sure the majority of ball/strike calls go their way, to XM giving them their own dedicated channel (Yankees games are ALWAYS on XM 176), to Giambi's smug face (to which I'd like give a "once over" with a tire iron or a cue ball in a tube sock), they literally are the most easily detestable team in the world.

Okay that was worth staying up for. Even though I'm beat this morning.

Every at bat my Alexei has me frustrated. Reminds me of Corey Patterson with that all or nothing swing he has. If he was 50 pounds heavier that swing might work. Like to see him try to place the ball a bit more.

BTW, were the Sox fans outnumbered last night? I was hearing a lot of cheering for a few of Joba's strikeouts. Most notably Uribe's.

Amen! We were at the game last night, and as the rain delay and the Yankee's endless step-out-of-the-box-to-slow-down-the-pitcher ballet wore on I was afraid I'd regret being there. But oh, how sweet it is.

The Yankees have gnawed at me for 50 years. When I was a kid in the early '60s, I remember the years the Sox had great teams and somehow seemed always just behind the Yankees. Even then they were the personification of smugness and self-adoration.

Any time the Sox can beat the Yankees, order is restored to the universe.

BTW, were the Sox fans outnumbered last night?

There were a lot of Yankee fans last night and they were loud (among other things) Would you say outnumbered-did not feel like that at the start...toward the end it felt (its actually hard to explain) like they had multiplied...but more I do not believe so.

I was there til the end too-lots of fans had left to the point of almost half Yankme fans down 1B line-Lots of fights last night-even saw a beer vendor removed for selling beer after he was supposed to stop.

But Gavin earned my respect-had nothing really before 3rd inning delay-kept us in it afterwards-just sorry they pitched to Milky Way with Molina on deck.

But a great night from Patio party to the end-6 1/2 hrs at the park

Oh, you could spot that one from a mile away. Delays = more beer consumption = chaos. It just gives me the willies knowing that a good number of those people drove home last night. :o:

I had my first beer right after the first delay and my second during second rain delay in the the Bullpen Bar..I knew I was driving...but there may have been some that thought beer consumption was a good way to pass the time.

Great. Another BA thread. :redneck


Seriously, this is a game I was so disgusted with that I turned off the TV and went to bed, but turned on the XM radio and listened from bed.

I hate rain delays. But I hate the Yankees more. Everything about them screams "We are the center of the universe." From the umps making sure the majority of ball/strike calls go their way, to XM giving them their own dedicated channel (Yankees games are ALWAYS on XM 176), to Giambi's smug face (to which I'd like give a "once over" with a tire iron or a cue ball in a tube sock), they literally are the most easily detestable team in the world.

It's about damn time the Sox beat the Yankees.

Now, let's go on a winning streak and put some distance between ourselves and the division!
Nice to see the offense show up a little. Hope this is just a blip in the radar for the BP. We needed that win!!!

Speaking of media though, I was forced into the Yankee broadcast of the game yesterday. They are ususally just OK, not great or really bad...however, one thing they said floored me. When Linbrink came on they commented on his contract: " The Sox gave Linbrink a huge deal that really shook up baseball to it's foundation. It broke new ground for middle relivers and the salaries they make."
WHAT??? I know the Linebrink deal was critisized by some because of the # of years, but shaking baseball to it's foundations? Yeah, lets not mention the Yankeees $200 M payroll and the $275 M A-Rod deal.

Great win, unfortunately I didn't find out about until this morning. Quentin was batting in the 9th unfortunately in SW Wisconsin we had a pretty good thunderstorm going at that time. After the first pitch to Quentin our satellite goes out. :angry: I wait a few minutes - nothing. At least I woke up to the good news this moring.:bandance: However, it can stop raining any time now!

Had to go to bed just as the Yanks tied it 6-6, so I woke up wondering if the Good Guys pulled it off. When I heard this morning that Crede knocked in the game winner, I thought , "Yup, that's about right." Clutch Crede does it again. Having both he and Fields is a good problem to have, indeed.

04-25-2008, 09:02 AM
There are people who will tell you Crede isn't a clutch hitter, that we only remember the times he has come through in the clutch. It's true that he doesn't always get a game winning hit when he is in a position to do so. In the 12-inning win, for example, he led off the 11th by grounding out. But the reason I remember Crede hitting game winning hits is because he has a knack for the game-winning hit.

You wouldn't be refering to the stat-head geeks who don't actually watch the games, would you? :tongue:

Hopefully this win is the start of a nice long winning stretch.

I was surprised to see Floyd return to the mound after the rain delay. I thought it was usually a given that the starter doesn't return if he pitches some innings and then there is a long delay.

BTW, were the Sox fans outnumbered last night? I was hearing a lot of cheering for a few of Joba's strikeouts. Most notably Uribe's.

I was in sec. 535 and I was surrounded by Yankee fans. One guy wouldn't shut up about how great Joba Chamberlain is gonna be and how they are easing him in to a starter role so they don't blow out his arm. As soon as he said that the Yankee trainer was called out to check on Joba.

Still though, there were a TON of Yankee hats and jerseys in the park last night.

I was at the game as well and there was a tub of lard Yankees fan behind me and his accent was horrible and he did shut up the whole game. At one point he made a comment about AJ being fat and that he wondered what his 40/40 time was. Then a Sox fan sitting a couple seats down said that the Yankees fan's 40/40 could be timed with a Sun Dial. That was pretty funny, but there are Yankee fans everywhere.

It's gonna be a pain when Boston comes to town too. Especially since Cubs fans have adopted the Red Sox as their secondary team. I can't tell you how many times I've seen morons wearing a Boston cap with a Cub jersey or vice versa. :scratch:

JOE CREDE! HUGE win right there, I'd rather be 12-9 than 11-10 anyday. Not to mention Cleveland and Detroit are starting to turn it around. We have to beat those Orioles this time, this bullpen is starting to concern me a bit...

Yea, it was a great win, HOWEVER, we had yet another dismal performance by the 'pen in the 7th inning. That is my biggest worry right now.

Last year, the pen was solid in the first part of April as well... then, well, we all know what happened.

Time will tell how good this team really is. One thing is for certain though, we need to be more consistent.

Great win last night but you're right, our pen has been a little leaky this past week. I think we all have a tendency to panic a bit about the bullpen because of last year. I'd feel better if we had one more quality arm in that bullpen because it is obvious Ozzie has no confidence in MacDougal other than mop up duty (and rightfully so). I have a feeling we'll be seeing Ehren Wasserman at some point this year to replace "Ol' MacDougal" which is a good thing because all that kid did last year was get outs.

Does that include the 2005 ALCS? I know it doesn't include the first game I saw Joe Crede play. The game didn't count. That was in Tucson in a 1999 exhibition game against the Cubs. Crede came up to hit in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied and got a game-ending double.

I went to White Sox games, mostly weekend games, from mid-2000 to mid-2003, and Joe Crede ended two games.

On Sunday, Sept. 8, 2002, the Sox were down 6-3 to the Indians going into the bottom of the ninth, hadn't scored since the fifth, when Frank Thomas hit a two-out, three-run homer to tie the game. After two walks and a hit batsman, Riske relieved Baez and Crede followed with a single to right to end the game. That was the day that Royce Clayton wasn't wearing his spikes when called upon to pinch run -- his last day with the Sox.

On Sunday, May 25, 2003, in the 12th inning against the Tigers, Crede hit a two-out, three-run homer to end it.

There are people who will tell you Crede isn't a clutch hitter, that we only remember the times he has come through in the clutch. It's true that he doesn't always get a game winning hit when he is in a position to do so. In the 12-inning win, for example, he led off the 11th by grounding out. But the reason I remember Crede hitting game winning hits is because he has a knack for the game-winning hit.

I have to be honest, I just heard the ESPN crew cite that stat on SportsCenter so I have no idea if it actually accurate.
Sure seems like Joe has come thru a lot in late innings,tho.

For the most part the bullpen has been pretty good in my opinion but here's what's bothering me. The Sox are giving up a ton of two out runs. At least three more Thursday night.

I don't know how many they've allowed this season, I can think of four games for example where they allowed multiple runs with two out, so maybe it's just an impression but to me that needs to change.

Cooper and the staff perhaps needs to have a talk on changing the pitching pattern with two outs on a guy.

It's Joe Crede, everyone saw that one coming.Everyone but Girardi! I have no idea why you'd pitch to Crede with first base open and Ramirez on deck, score tied in the bottom of the ninth and a man on second. :dunno: I checked the NY media to see if Girardi was getting grilled for such a colossal blunder, but I didn't see any criticism. Enjoy the honeymoon while it lasts, Joe G. Or maybe it's just because the game got over late, and the reporters couldn't be bothered to update their stories.
