Garland -- 8.0IP 5H 1R 1 ER 2BB 4 SO

As we embark on the longest road trip of the season, tonights pitching performance by Jon Garland was awesome. We needed a night to give that bullpen some rest. I was reading some posts that said people couldn't wait for Garland to start sucking so we could get McCarthy out of AAA. I am all for giving him a spot start sometime when we need an extra day of rest but I'm in no hurry to get him here. I will take 4 experienced starters who are pitching good and Garland any day. Lets just hope The Cubans can keep pitching well.

With a Bulls win, a Twins loss, and a Cubs loss, I think we're talking about the Quadruple Crown of Chicago sports. Doesn't get any better than that.

Speaking of that Twins game, considering the Twins' untimely hitting against us, plus the fact they had the bases loaded and no one out in the 4th and no one crossed home, I'm thinking I'm going to enjoy this little Twins' slump.

And isn't it great to hear the words "Sox fifth starter" without hearing the words "black hole" in the same sentence?

Anyone who didnt think this team would hit a lot of homers didn't actually look at the roster and just was listening to what Kenny Williams and Ozzie Guillen were saying. This team is one that should hit about 200 no matter what, but I wouldnt put nearing last year's total past this team. Everyone from 1-9 can hit the ball out of the yard and there are many 30 home run candidates.

I love the Gooch, he seems to be everywhere the ball is hit defensively, and is the reason for a few less solo shots this season.

Crede is on fire, and I love it after all the flack he's caught as of late. GO JOE!

Garland finally the man he should be? :bandance:

PK might be even better than he was last season.

Hermansen has been leaps and bounds better than I expected. Marte is getting back to old form. I love this team!

Does anyone think this great pitching is linked to A.J.'s calling of the games? That's the best theory I can come up with. Everyone has shown improvement and gotten out of tough situations this season, not like last season.

Garland -- 8.0IP 5H 1R 1 ER 2BB 4 SO

I was reading some posts that said people couldn't wait for Garland to start sucking so we could get McCarthy out of AAA. I am all for giving him a spot start sometime when we need an extra day of rest but I'm in no hurry to get him here. I will take 4 experienced starters who are pitching good and Garland any day. Lets just hope The Cubans can keep pitching well.

BMac gave up five runs in five innings last night. He didn't do too well his previous start either, if I recall.

BMac is going to have a bright future, but it is still a little way's off.

It appears that Garland has finally arrived. Way to go Jon! :bandance:

Can it be that Crede has finally arrived as well?????

Go SOX!!! :gulp:

I will be the frist one to admit that I expected the usual 12 wins from Garland.

How good is our pitching if Garland steps up another level to Garcia/Buehrle levels?

Between that and Crede looking like a bonafide good hitter, I don't know what to think.

Could this be true, or what?

9-1 is just what we needed to put all these naysayers to waste. Go Sox! I hope we keep this up when we get out of our division. Our pitching looks great. Our sluggers are coming around. Let's come out swinging and throwing strikes and we'll put the opposition away and stun the critics. I hope this team is really coming together.

Pods is back, Dye is hitting, Iguchi is lights out, Crazy Carl is producing more than we can ask for, Paulie looks like he is back in form, Crede is coming around.

The pitching is incredible (at least on paper) so lets keep it up.

A hernia is a disorder where your intestine gets caught in the abdominal wall and sometimes it goes directly through the wall. Other hernias occur when the intestine gets caught in the spermatic cord. I don't see how anyone could get a hernia confused with "inflammation"

Quotes from the Tigger's board (Motownsports). Seems liek a recap of a discussion with Maggs or a team source on Maggs:

Comments from Magglio
We need to get to the bottom of this
Physically he feels fine http://www.motownsports.com/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif
Sometimes your body just gets tired
When I start running I get tired
Afraid whatever it is will only get worse thats why he wants to get more tests done.
Could be the pelvis?
We will see what happens

Gee, who'da thunk that after a couplea games Maggs would come up with some weird, unexplainable condition completely unrelated to his knee that prevens him from playing?

One more thing to like about this team: Without the black hole in the 5th spot, they're actually capable of ripping off winning streaks. I see several streaks of 7+ games this year. That's the way to put some distance between you and the second place team.

ON2, good point, but the flip side of this is that you are also capable of not going on prolonged losing streaks as well.

``These guys are playing well,'' Tigers manager Alan Trammell said. ``They're in first place, but sitting here and looking at the division, Minnesota is still the team to beat.''

When White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen heard the Twins have been withholding praise of his team until they get to the middle of the season, he shot back at the defending AL Central champions.


``They don't have the same team they had in the past,'' Guillen said. ``I'll take my chances. I like this team.''

"Yes... yes, that's correct... an inflamation. Oh, and it's not in the stomach area. You have to go about 2 feet down to the area just below the upper fleshy portion of the left leg. It's totally inflamed and it hurts like a mutha. I figure in 4-6 weeks, I'll have a problem with one of the discs in my back if this keeps up. After that, it may be August before I can even consider talking about the problem in my right ankle..."

What? Crede hit another home run?

That hissing sound you hear is the last vestige of shoota's credibility evaporating...

Carlos Guillen has got to catch that foul popup hit by Crede. Crede's 3-run home run should have never happened, ironically like the 3-run home run Buehrle surrended to Torii Hunter should have never happened if Crede's error didn't entend the inning.


Why is my credibility evaporating? It's not like I said Crede would never hit a meaningless 3-run homer all season. I still think that he will be the Clueless Joe of the past three years. Sure he will imporve on his 2004 statistics, but that's only because he set the bar so low in his 2004 campaign. I guess I'll invoke the same defense you had for Crede a week ago, now: It's too early to make judgements on players.

And for the record, I thought Crede's recent performances were enough to keep me from saying a bad word about him. I was planning on praising Joe for his good game in this thread, but those plans were changed when Crede fans had to mention me in this thread. Trust me, I too take pleasure in Crede's successes.

Great win. :gulp: Now, they have 1 more game against Detroit tommorrow, and then 2 against Kansas City, before they have to go to Oakland for the 3 game series. In my opinion, it's entirely realistic for the Sox to take at least these next 3 games. The Tigers might or might not be a bit improved from last season, though it doesn't seem like it, and the Royals are just flat out BAD, probably one of the 5 worst teams in baseball. This is the time for the White Sox to "fatten up" on these guys, if you will. Increase that number in the W column, and hopefully pad that division lead a bit. The series against the A's will/should be more challenging for them, so take ALL of these first 4.

It's truly bizarre. The guy's the hottest hitter on the team and has been playing good defense. All that Shoota can say is that he "should have never had a chance to hit that homer." That's just lame. Next time a guy can't make a play on a foul ball, the hitter should just concede the plate appearance because "he shouldn't have had a chance."

Anyway, Garland's just doing what he's capable of. He's a kid that came up at 20 and had crazy expectations. Really, he's one of those guys that was thrust into a role and had to develop in the majors alla Beltre, Uribe. He's just coming into his own. His development is really on par with most good pitchers. They turn the corner in their mid-twenties. I'd like to see us lock him up for a few years. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come with JG.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow. With MB and Bonderman on the bump, I might have to set my alarm clock just to catch the last few innings. :gulp:

If Garland and Crede suck over the next week, we will be able to argue that they have simply reverted to their usual ways, whereas somebody who argues right now that Dye should be strung up in RF needs to come face-to-face with the fact that Dye has a history of very much not sucking and may just be in a bad stretch.

I called out Dye a little, but still won't be concerned about him until we get 30 games in. He made a really big error on an easy outfield single that cost Freddy some runs (and the game perhaps) while hitting .190ish. Also, he went in lazy on a bloop single soon after that play that me and the people sitting around me thought he should have been more aggressive on.

Dye has big shoes to fill, and from all the "Gold glove in RF" talk I've heard, that was not fun to watch. He'll turn it around. I don't think a Hr makes up for everything, but he's got plenty of time to find his stroke. I have semi-high expectations of .285/30/80.

If Garland continues to develop this team's starting pitching has the talent and depth to be one of the best. The very best? I gotta say probably not. The 1920 team had four twenty game winners.

Garland so far: 3-0 2.57 ERA only 1 HR allowed. As Ozzie used to say, "We take dat one."

Just for the record, it was actually former Sox third baseman Aurelio Rodriguez who said, "We take dat one". It was his response to a lucky break, similar to the one that Crede got when Carlos Guillen missplayed his pop up in foul territory, on the pitch just before he hit the 3 run homer. "We definitely take dat one"!!:D:

I'm shocked that this is tied for the best start in the the history of the team. The Sox have had many, many 90+ win seasons so I'd figure some of those included a 13-3 start or something. They also tend to do quite well in April over the years, but then plummet in May or June. The key for this team, of course, is the starting pitching. If it continues the way it has then the team will continue to win.
