On the immediate horizon are the prospects of a Thomas-Jerry Manuel face-off, a Thomas-Paul Konerko staredown, a Thomas-Ken Williams meeting and the unveiling of the all-new pitching philosophy at which Manuel hinted after Sunday's game .


Anybody have any guesses as to what this is all about? I haven't heard a word about it until now.

It involves lots of 'juice', strippers and dwarf tossing.

Perhaps there going to make some changes in the starting rotation. Or there going to stop with this 100 pitch crap.

Its either the pitch count thing, or maybe the 5 pitchers an inning thing. We can only hope.

And here i was hoping it meant that we were going with a 2 man rotation of buehrle and garland and moving the rest of them to the pen... :smile:

no, seriously, i'm wondering if they are going to start rotating guys into the 3, 4 adn 5 slots and basically make it like bullpen days

All right here's my call. Whatever it is, it'll help but Manuel will only have it in place for 10 days anyway before switching back to the old way of doing things.

Yeah.

Seriously though, I have to leave now and won't be able to watch the game. So let me know what you notice.

Thanks,
