I think that the most pleasant surprise of the young season so far has been the defense. We're turning double plays, Crede and Valentin look solid on the right side, Konerko is making nice picks at 1st, and Olivo looks really good behind the plate. In fact, I would say that the stellar plays in the 4th inning were the real momentum-builder for the victory today. Garland was walking half the Bronx, but the defense really bailed him out.

If we get solid defense from this club, I think we can take this division.

Crede is becoming a defensive god. Over the last couple of years he has made many outstanding plays and is just getting better.

I really think our defense has always been good on the left side. Valentin is the most underrated defensive SS in the Majors. Crede is pretty damn good too. Harris and Konerko will do us good if they are just mediocre this year, but if Uribe can start hitting, he is an excellent fielder.
