Can't complain about anything in that game. I'd really, really like the team to keep on Lillibridge once Peavy is back. He adds the speed aspect you need off the bench.

And obviously he hits like a monster on monster steroids.

Just a nice solid team effort with great pitching. Got an early lead and rode Edwin to the finish. Glad they put up the insurance runs in the 8th to let Ozzie use Santos. I still think he might be the best option for a closer long term, but not having to push Thornton today makes me extra happy.

I'd like to commend Mr. Jackson for pitching exactly the kind of game the team needed after two 12-inning games and playing less than 24 hours after the last one on the road. Magnificent!:gulp::gulp:

I also note, once again, that manufacturing runs is a productive way to score when properly executed (I'm looking at you, AJ). Well played game all around.:gulp:

Great game by Edwin today. He went deep into the game, was dominating and even gave the most of the bullpen a rest after two extra inning games.

Not to mention the Sox were running the Rays out of the ballpark today. Can't say that I saw that one coming.

Great stuff from Jackson. I wish Ozzie didn't let him throw quite so many pitches, though. He is definitely a horse who will give you a lot of innings, but he faded in the second half during his best year (in Detroit) likely because Leyland abused his arm. He also struggled for a couple of games with the Sox last year after Ozzie had him throw a bunch of pitches.

Jackson gives our bullpen a much needed break by going 8 IP for the win.

Right now, he's the one starter I have the most confidence in. If Peavy can come back healthy soon, then I'll be excited about having Jackson, Danks, and Jake as our top 3 starters.

We need some more starters going deep into games because our bullpen looks pretty bad right now.

Great job with pitching, defense and timely hitting. Lets win at least 2 out of the next 3 from the Rays, they are down and aren't hitting. Nothing wrong with kicking someone when they are down.

Just what we needed. That Rays lineup looks a lot different without Longoria. I'm sure if our bullpen wasn't in such bad shape from the last two days, Ozzie would've taken him out sooner, but it went well. Nice hitting and great way to greet the fans.

Random question, might have been addressed, did they sell SRO tickets? The outfield terrace looked slammed, more than I've ever seen, and the Bullpen Bar was closed because of capacity issues by the 5th inning.

I missed this game except for the first two innings, but I guess the two runs I saw score were all we needed.

On another note, I remember a lot of people were skeptical when we acquired Jackson last year. I was not one of them. Now you can see why.

It was hard for the Rays to run the Sox out of the ballpark when the Rays weren't getting any baserunners.

It didn't seem like she played very much, except for a bit before the game started. She never did the Na Na Nana bit when the Rays pitchers were removed or when the game ended, and I definitiely missed the play on names and numbers Nancy would do when an opposing batter stepped up to the plate. She has her own style. It will take some getting used to.

He still left the game losing. I think it's dumb when it's played when the other team is winning - but if we chase a pitcher with the lead than that needs to get organed like nothing has ever been organed before.

As I said in the separate thread about Lori, it would be unfair to her if we demand that she be a carbon copy of Nancy. We have to let Lori develop her own musical identity. Even if that means a different tempo to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" or not hearing "Na Na Na Na..." when an opposing pitcher is yanked, we have to move on.

Today was so awesome -- good company, great game by the Sox, and I was back "home" at the ballpark. :smile:

However, this was one of the coldest Opening Days I've attended. This was my tenth in eleven years and I can't remember it being as cold & damp as it was, nor that foggy! We were tailgating at the south end of Lot F and at one point, it was difficult to even see the ballpark! I wore four layers, but it took a hot shower when I got home for me to fully thaw out.

It was quite cold...but I thought I remember it being colder like 2 or 3 years ago (don't remember the exact year). I for one didn't dress warm enough. All I wore was a knit sweater, a semi-light sox jacket, and my grandpa brought a very light windbreaker that I wore. I survived though! :redneck

Had to listen to this one on the road, but as many said, a team coming off two 12-inning games needed a starter to go deep into the game and EJ did just that.

What's scary is that after being 6-hit by EJ and Santos, Tampa's team BA for the season went UP from .136 to .145.

Another weird stat: After six games, the Sox have 77 hits to Tampa's 27, but only one more HR (5 to 4). The Yankees, in comparison, have 47 hits, 13 of which are homers. Small ball indeed...

Dominating performance by Edwin.

Let's resign him instead of Buehrle.

The Sox very well might try to re-sign him. In any event, I cannot imagine the Sox not offering Jackson arbitration. If Jackson leaves as a free agent at the end of the season (and the Sox offer arbitration), the Sox will get a draft pick (or picks).

I was there, too, skipping a day of high school. And watching the Sox lose 12-2 made it feel a lot colder. It wasn't a quick 12-2 either. Steve Stone in relief of Wilbur Wood just kept walking people. The next opener, in 1974, was cold, too, but that didn't stop the streaking in the stands when the game turned ugly on the way to an 8-2 loss. In 1974, I sat through a game that was called because of snow with the score tied in extra innings, but that wasn't opening day. Still, brutal weather is part of the opening day tradition.

I totally missed following today's game because I had to drive up to Oakland. This year's home opener was just a score to me, although I'm impressed and not surprised with what I've read of the game, weather-wise and baseball-wise. Even without Dunn, this looks like a very good White Sox team.

My favorite opener was spent sitting with Viva in 2003, but I think the game was only half as long as the pregame rain delay.

Opening Day 1980 vs Balt. I cut classes and came up from I.U. on a smelly Greyhound, the night before opening day. 4 1/2 hours. I did that because I also was there in 78 (and cut high school) when Blomberg hit the game tying homer off Boston and wanted to relive that.

It did not work out. Bad day all around, It was about 37 game time and the wind was bitter. Comiskey was a bit more than half full.Steve Trout vs Jim Palmer. Froze, froze and froze and Palmer pretty much had his way. Not a good opener and not a good year. 70-90. LaRussa's first year I think.

Could not face that Hound again and hitchhiked back in even worse weather. The **** I did when I was 19.
