"Josh Fields led off with a single, advanced to third on a single by Juan Uribe and scored on A.J. Ellis' sacrifice fly"

People get hits. Some of them are former Sox. Try not to jump off a bridge when it happens, especially in spring training.

I feel the same pain you feel. Who the Hell is A.J. Ellis? He was never in the White Sox' system. The nerve!

Colletti signed Juan 'Profundo' Uribe to a 3-year, $21 million contract. I'm glad the Sox don't have that contract on the books, despite Juan's contributions in 2005. And Fields sucks.

Last season, I was randomly in Phoenix for work and I attended a D-Backs game. The Dodgers were in town, and everytime Juan Uribe came to bat I cheered loudly and obnoxiously for him, yelling things like "URIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIBE" and "ORGULLO BANI!" at the top of my lungs. People must have thought I was absolutely insane, because I didn't cheer for any other players.

Finally in the 9th inning, a ball is hit to Uribe (first time in the game, amazingly) and he commits an error. Naturally I get a lot of crap from people around me.

Well, Juan has made up for that error by advancing the runner in a meaningless ST game today.

I don't know anyone who follows baseball who considers the Dodgers' signing of Uribe to be a good move for anyone other than Juan Uribe, his dependents and his agent. And Uribe was very popular with Giants fans. Also, if Josh Fields sees a lot of playing time for the Dodgers, the Dodgers are in trouble.

The full quote:

The Dodgers scored off Sale in the bottom of the fifth. Josh Fields led off with a single, advanced to third on a single by Juan Uribe and scored on A.J. Ellis' sacrifice fly.

I highlighted the relevant portion of this fuller quote from the article. Based on this more complete information I'd say the recap is quite positive for the Sox...

To put in another way, a veteran had a very good year with the Giants, and got a large contract that likely vastly overpaid him because of it, and it wasn't Brian Sabean who inked him to that deal.

Stone mentioned during the broadcast that Fields has a good shot to make the team as the starting LF so yes, the Dodgers might be in trouble this season.

With new ownership, I have a feeling their roster will begin a drastic overhaul once finalized - LF being one of the first changes if relying on Fields to get the job done.

My only pleasant memory of Fields is the Grand Slam during Buehrle's perfect game. Otherwise, I associate him with approaching grounds balls as if they were hand grenades.
