SPRINGFIELD - I caught the last few innings of last night's game in my hotel room here. I thought the game was another close one that we coulda/woulda/shoulda won. I gather that we got a decent pitching performance from spot starter Gary Glover, and that he got out of serious jams earlier in the game.

Coming into this series, I said I'd be satisfied if we managed to take at least on of these three games. Now, I think we possibly should have SWEPT the Mariners. We could have been, at best, 4 out if I'm not mistaken? But because we didn't sweep, we back to 7 out. I think our best shot at the playoffs is to win the division.

We have the Texas Rangers coming to Comiskey Park this week and the Oakland Athletics coming for the following weekend series. After that, I believe we go on the road to Tampa Bay. This is yet another opportunity to gain ground and get ourseves above the .500-mark.
