My theory is the the whole ninth inning was a setup by Ozzie.....Make no mistake about it, the Sox are looking closely at Shingo's ability to close, so they put in a patsey to give Shingo another chance to earn a save.

Randy Winn advanced to second on defensive indifference. ..from the Tribune's text PBP of the game. Somehow the phrase "defensive indifference" recaps this whole disappointing season. :(:

Good to get a win though.

EDIT: Perhaps the phrase just expresses my attitude about this disappointing season. :(:

Quite a throw by Timo. Nice catch and tag by Uribe at third, too.

Watch out, Joe. There's always room for one more parking cars.

I admit I turned the game on when jose batted in the bottom of the 8th. And right when i turned it on, it all went to crap.

I seriously need to stop watching this stuff.:o:

Baj looked good though, just a few measly punchy hits, and an 'error' by willie "i make the plays" harris.

Are we ever going to get an easy win again? This is two nights in a row where we nearly grasped defeat from the jaws of victory.....

If it wasn't for Ichiro Suzuki going 5 for 5, this wouldn't been a close game. The guy is a straight up freak.

Way to go Willie! His homerun turned out to be difference in the game.

But, Timo's throw was better than seeing a homerun. I love good defense.

On the downside, Shingo is becoming Kochgo. I don't think he's going to be able to adjust.

Tonight, Konerko moved past Bill Melton, into 6th place on the White Sox' all time HR list, with 156.

Congrats Pauly!!!:bandance: :supernana: :bandance:

I only saw the accounts of the game on the Internet, but what struck me is that this afternoon the Mariners lost the game the way the White Sox have been losing games since I was a kid -- and probably before that.

The fans cheering for Ichi's achievement today was a class act, too bad we don't see more of it on this board. I've seen so much whining I don't know what to think. Let's take a play from the Monty Python playbook and "always look on the bright side of life." I don't mind constructive criticism, but no one logs on to this board for endless complaining.

Whether or not Shingo is becoming "Kochgo" or not will only bother me when he starts to blow some saves. His job is to close the game, and he's only messed up once. All other considerations don't really matter to me. Just my opinion. :cool:

OH MY GOD, I just checked out the plays of the game. Hawk's call for Timo's throw was incredible. That is why I love Hawk. Too bad they didn't have Willie's HR.

The chat tonight was pretty pro Ichiro. He's about as Crazy as Barry Bonds. I said he's gotta be a ninja or monk or something in his off-time with that concentration.

It could have been a close-to-flawless night for Buehrle if not for Ichiro. He had two singles to left off Buehrle, a sharp single to right and an RBI single to center in the seventh. Buehrle had tried just about everything by that point against the man sitting atop the American League with 223 hits and a .379 average.

So, the only logical choice remaining was an "eephus" pitch, which Ichiro took high. Both dugouts seemed to get a good laugh from that attempt, which did not come from Takatsu's repertoire, according to Buehrle.

Ichiro was simply locked in on every pitch. The man is as smooth as a mayonnaise sandwich. Unless he goes into a funk which is highly unlikely imo, George Sisler's 84 year old record will fall by the wayside.

It surely was a class act, but what else would one expect from White Sox fans?
Regarding this, the following was from Yahoo Sports:

Buehrle even tried an eephus pitch against Suzuki, who received a standing ovation from the Chicago crowd after his fifth hit in the ninth inning.


``In Japan, I saw that a lot,'' Suzuki said of the eephus pitch through a translator. ``But here, it's probably the first time. ``To give an ovation to an opposing player, I think they really love the game,'' he added. ``It really made me feel good to see that.''

Did we impress him enough to get him to come and play for us?!:gulp:

Hey I was just wondering. Has Ichiro faced Shingo yet this year? It would be intriguing since both as certainly familiar with eachother from Japan. In fact, I wonder what Ichiro's lifetime average is against Shingo in Japan.

They faced each other Friday night. Shingo got Ichiro to fly out to center. They never faced each other in Japan.

What's an "eephus" pitch?

Years ago--40s--a pitcher from Pittsburg---Rip Sewell started throwing the ball about 12 feet in air with a lot of spin real slow it would come down on the batter at an angle hard to hit, he had pretty good luck with it but only threw it 4 or 5 times a game. He pitched in All-Star game one year and threw it to Ted Williams who hit it about 450 ft., form what I hear it was the only time any body ever homered off it.

Here's a great article on the Eephus Pitch (http://www.thebaseballpage.com/features/2000/eephus.htm). I'll post it here because it's being discussed in this thread, but it probably deserves its own thread in "Talking Baseball". Enjoy!
