All I can say is 'You gotta be bleeping me!!!':bandance:

You need to win games like this to gain confidence. What a play to end it!!!

All the stranded runners and blown scoring opportunities suck but at least we are getting hits.

And welcome back, Jake!! Nice job despite Juan P. Error costing you a run in the first.

Nice job using Thornton as a closer Ozzie, don't ever ****ing do it again!!

Was that the first time we went 1-2-3 to end a game all season?

Jake looked real good tonight and deserved a win.

He didn't deserve a loss though. Nice to see the offense get their heads out of their asses the last couple of innings.

Back-to-back series wins.

It's a start.

A couple Lillibridge-esque plays from Paulie to save a nice come-from-behind win, helped by a unconscionable wild pitch on an intentional walk.

Nice to see Dunn hopefully starting to come out of the major funk.

15 LOB though is still a big issue.

Wow...just wow. Sometimes, everything goes wrong...and then in the same breath, everything goes right. Way to get it done boys!! LOVE it, love it, love it!!! I had angrily muted the TV after Alexei's interference brain fart and had written this game off as a loss. Glad I stayed up to watch. I don't think I've heard of a winning run scoring on a wild pitch on an intentional walk before.

Winning 3 in a row was awesome. Losing 2 in a row was not going to be awesome. Losing a series really isn't an option any more if the Sox have any sort of prayer.

Forgot to mention: Great job by Peavy, only sorry he doesn't get the win.

Hopefully that save will get Matt Thornton out of this funk he's been in. A couple of nice defensive plays from Paulie made his life easy tonight. Sometimes, you need to catch a break or two.

We all know Matt is a better pitcher than what he has shown, and he is a big key for this team moving forward.

Was beside myself in disgust throughout the whole game until the 9th.

Alexei with two gidp with men on third, then he gets called for catcher interference (which was the right call) with the game tying runs on second and third in the 8th.

So much to comment on. So much bad baseball. But they figured out how to win this game and the box score says 6-4. Humoungous win. Two road series wins in a row. This one against a first place team. Finally get a day off after a win and have some positive momentum.

I am going to focus on the positives tonight because it's too easy to keep harping on the negative (and too obvious):

-Jake looked solid. I agree with Stoney that it will be his second and third starts until we can really get a good idea what he will be like.

-Santos is all star bound. Guy is still at 0.00.

-Adam Dunn. Continuing the hot hitting. Guy is key to this offense. Protect Paulie.

-A.J. Had a good offensive game. Still cant throw a runner out - wait...stay positive.

-Thornton had the biggest confidence boosting outing of the season. Huge 1 2 3 to end it.

-Captain Pauly ****ing Walnuts with the leather. What more can be said. That was absolutely the most exciting last inning. Consecutive web gems to end it. Great play by both him and Matt, and i loved seeing them smile.

Time for the best starting staff in the AL with the A's. Not going to get any easier.

Jekyll and Hyde Sox are back!

A win is a win. This was the most ridiculous game I have seen in years. Time to get some rest. :gulp:

-A.J. Had a good offensive game. Still cant throw a runner outThere have been several times, tonight included, that the fault was Alexei's for taking the throw four feet in front of the bag and then trying to sweep back. He needs to be further back and take the throw where the runner slides right into it.

Tragg
05-12-2011, 01:47 AM
Boy that's the kind of win we needed.
I was thinking before the 9th inning that we must have the worst scoring yield in baseball....i.e. runs scored per runners on base. We finally cracked through.

I would think that would have been corrected after he did it the 1st time tonight but it happened again. I wonder if he was told after the 1st time and if not why not? Surely the man in charge of this team knows what you know, since he was a very good major league SS.

I'm sure he was by both Ozzie and Omar, but what can they really do? Fine him? Spank him? Alexei has to fix that but either refuses to or can't break the habit.

I don't know, perhaps maybe the last one he was out of position, but for how many years now has it been "oh he stole that one on the pitcher" and "fielder out of position". Throughout his whole tenure here its been painfully obvious that he is just brutal at this aspect of the game.

So far he has has thrown out three. Twenty five have stolen on him. I don't think you can hide that with excuses. Career he is 232/727. Yikes.

I like when Ramon catches because at least he has a chance.

I was just saying it's not all his fault, Alexei's positioning is fundamentally wrong. It could be he doesn't like getting slid into, and being in front of the bag pretty much eliminates that on a straight steal.

A negative take would suggest that the Angels were doing their White Sox impression tonight. A blown save against a seemingly offensively dormant team before allowing the deciding run on an unbelievable, even comical defensive play.

In one sense, there was no way the White Sox should have lost this game. The difference was the two-out RBIs by the Angels, and on at least one of those, the plays should have been made on defense. The White Sox, on the other hand, couldn't get the two out hit, and they got multiple runners on base in each of the first five innings. Even with runners on first and third and one out, Ramirez hit into a double play.

Ramirez had a tough night. The first double play hurt. The second was devastating. When he was called out on interference, although I doubt he intentionally interfered with the catcher, the night seemed hopeless. And yet, he put it behind him, got a hit in the 10th and eventually scored the winning run. He had a tough night in Seattle on this trip before he drove in the the game-winning run with a double.

The Sox got a break with the wild pitch on the intentional walk. As long as I've been watching baseball, I have never seen an extra-inning tie broken on a wild pitch thrown in the execution of an intentional walk. But the Angels still would have been in a deep hole, and Lillibridge came up with a fly ball deep enough to score Dunn.

It was interesting that in the lineup discussion, it was Pierre and Dunn batting first and third that most bothered people. Chatwood had a great night against the right-handers, but against the left-handers, not so much. Maybe Vizquel might have had a better night than Teahen, but Vizquel, as often has been the case with the Sox, was there when they needed him.

A sloppy game, sure, but I just saw the play that ended it, and it was super pretty. A fun game, most definitely, if you're a Sox fan. What is certainly wasn't was a lucky win for a gutless team.

Diasagree 100%. Hawk, and Stone too to a certain extent, have turned into AJ apologists. It's always our pitchers, Alexei, Gordon, etc...that's at fault.

If Alexei waits for the ball on the bag, the throw will arrive later and the runner will be safe regardless. Also, most of the throws are short and to the third base side. If Alexei waits back at the bag he'd have an extremely difficult time catching the ball on the hop, much less be able to bring the glove back down from waist high to make the tag in time.

AJ has a terrible arm. Period. When Cabrera was here he also started jumping in front of the bag to take the throws, after realizing that AJ didn't have the arm strength to get the ball to the bag in time.

Having said that though, I thought Kendrick was definitely out and that the call was blown.

Nellie_Fox
05-12-2011, 02:10 AM
If Alexei waits for the ball on the bag, the throw will arrive later and the runner will be safe regardless. That's crazy. A ball in flight will cover that distance much faster than a man can catch it and then sweep it back.

Alexei's positioning is fundamentally wrong. It could be he doesn't like getting slid into, and being in front of the bag pretty much eliminates that on a straight steal.
I think you hit the nail on the head here. Alexei has always been a pretty timid player when it comes to contact. He freaks out at inside pitches and will often cover his head with his arms when sliding or beating out a close play. I guess if I was built like a string bean, I'd be afraid of contact too. :tongue:

PalehosePlanet
05-12-2011, 02:17 AM
That's crazy. A ball in flight will cover that distance much faster than a man can catch it and then sweep it back.

Not if it's going to bounce and force you to go up with the glove to catch it, than back down to tag the runner.

I'll admit that Alexei does get swipe tag happy, but I think he's been conditioned to do this on throws that are consistently short and to the third base side.

I'll pay special attention next time Omar plays SS to see how he handles AJ's throws, but in the end I doubt the results will be different (SB, either way.)

I saw where we left 15 on base, hopefully we can start changing that. I hope that this is a sign of good things to come.

About time the Sox get a lucky break for a change. Kind of an ugly game considering how many guys were left on base, just happy they pulled through and took advantage at the end. Peavy looked pretty good too. Pitched good enough to lose thanks to Pierre. But I think it's safe to say we can all be happy with 6 innings, lots of strikes, and 4/0 K/BB ratio.

That was a two-man play, you know. PK made a very nifty flip to be sure, but Thornton didn't know he was going to do that and yet made the grab very close to his body... actually, much like PK did on the Buehrle flip.

I just got a chance to watch that...Man, that might just be the play of the year! It isn't quite Buehrleesque, but it's pretty close!

Sam Fuld's catch is still the absolute play of the year.

It may have been but this one has the pizzazz to get an award.

Don't. Stop. Now. Boys.

Please do not use the rally kill phrase.

There were several very impressive plays yesterday actually.

I missed the end of the game due to its lateness and I was please to find out about the comeback on WSI this morning.

I hope Peavy is fully back and all the "bumps in the road" are over regarding his comeback.

Compared to what we have, I still like Scioscia as a manager. :shrug:

Hey, we've won 4 of 5. All naysaying about Ozzie has been debunked.

I'm glad to see this team showing some life, but IMO I didn't jump off the Ozzie bandwagon in one week just because I "hate" him or because of one isolated funk and likewise, the "I told you so"s at this point are a bit premature.

I went to bed after the top of the 8th. Imagine my surprise when I turned on the radio after waking up this morning and heard the Sox had won 6-4! I literally did this: :o:. With that said, I approve of late/extra-inning, come-from-behind victories! :bandance:

Konerko, take a bow. Thanks for the awesome defensive highlight.

Really? Winning four out of five erases five years of bad managing?

It's poor form to call for the manager to be fired after a win, but he's done nothing to change my opinion.

That was supposed to be in teal.

Newsflash - there is no such thing as implied teal. No matter how ridiculous you think your statement is, there is someone who will take it seriously. Teal is here because we can't look at your face for cues that imply sarcasm.
