Hey all,

Hope no one has posted this one yet, but I was reading an article on possible roids use by Nomar and low and be hold there was a blurb about the SOX. Maybe our calls for attention are finally being heard.

It's kinda more of the same stuff other writers point out, but at least we're getting some press. What do you all think?

"The White Sox struck out only 87 times in their first 16 games; only the Twins (86) had fewer whiffs in the AL. Putting the ball in play always helps, especially for a team that has tried to inject a little speed into the lineup."

I thought that quote was pretty interesting. I know we lost some big strikeout guys like Valentin for example, and we added guys like Pierzynski who rarely strike out, but I didn't even noticed how little we've been striking out this year.

Guess all those infield grounders moving the runners along and such are a huge thing we were missing last year.
