Yes. Uribe must be playing 2nd Base today.

So far the line-up is:

Willie 2B 0-1 K
Uribe SS 0-1 (Reached on Error)
Magglio RF 0-1
Frank DH 1-1 Double
Carlos LF 0-1 Flyout
Konerko 1B 1-1 Infield Single

Paulie's speed, or lack there of, really kills our run production when he's on base.

That's not saying much, unfortunately. I really question the wisdom of trading away ALL of the organizational depth at 2B. In the last 1.5 seasons, the Sox have lost Durham, Hummell, Jimenez, Miles and Roberto Alomar. None of those guys (other than Durham, arguably) is a top notch MLB player at this point, but I don't see how you can justify cutting ALL of those guys loose when Willie Harris is the only man left standing. How about hedging your bet a bit there, KW?

I think Willie Harris is coming around and it's nice to have Uribe in the mix, but I think WH has the defense at 2B that we need. Frank Thomas, who has lived in relative obscurity the last 14 years will be a MVP, mark my words!

When you buy the mlb.com feed for the season they just give you whatever the local radio broadcast is via the internet.

You mean it isn't a good idea to start him in a big game in vs NY in Yankee Stadium yet in his career? Was JM wrong? I mean - Buehrle was only BEGGING to start the game - right? He wasn't on his hands and knees crying. Maybe that's the problem...

In other news, they'll report that whichever cub pitcher got pounded today "battled through adversity in yet another sign that a World Series victory is assured."

Nice!

I could also see something like, "Garland managed to only strike out 2 hitters in his 8-2 win, while Cubs phenom prospect Sergio Mitre struck out 6, wowing them with his impressive movement on the way to a 12-2 loss.
