Iguchi with sparkling defense today. He turned two double plays and picked it at secondbase.

Dye did something that we couldn't do for the past three years. With PK on second with no outs in the 7th, Dye drove the ball in the air to the rightside...deep enough for PK to advance to third. This was a key moment to the game and easy to overlook. Caballo and Mags used to kill us in those situations.

Good point about Dye. It's like he knew he had to get it out of the park or damn close to get Konerko to advance. :wink:

Dye did a very good job of advancing PK. At first, I thought that ball was going over Blake's head because it was hit so hard. Even though Aaron got the RBI, if that error didn't happen, PK probably would have gotten nailed at the plate. But, hey, I'll take the win.
:D:

When was the last time you even saw a guy as slow as Paul even attempt to tage up on a deep fly? Ozzie's 'agressive' base running philosophy paid its first dividend this afternoon.

Brian correctly put it as the 'key' point.

Wouldn't Buehrle giving up only 2 hits be positive as well?

I would also like to add Shingo's 1-2-3, 9th inning save as another positive. A good first step towards all this nonsense coming from the media about Shingo not being a legit closer and how the league will figure him out in his second year.

We must not forget the Steak Pita and the Churros that were consumed by ph13 today...most definitely a positive about 4/4/2005!

Yeah. Cleveland has seen Shingo a lot, so it is good to see that they haven't figured him out yet.

Of course, Shingo was pitching against the crappy part of Cleveland's lineup. Victor Martinez, for all we know, would have taken Takatsu to the Dan Ryan if he had been at-bat instead.

They stacked three lefties against Shingo and he got 'em.

LipThat one was hit pretty deep. I think even in the corpseball days he would have taken 3rd on that.
