Info from White Sox.com discusses a bit the injury bug and the reaction to Tuesday's bizarre loss. FYI:



"Most importantly, there were two White Sox middle infielders who left the game due to injury in the seventh inning. Depending on the status of shortstop Juan Uribe and utility infielder Pablo Ozuna, the White Sox could be short-handed Wednesday afternoon as they try to start a new winning streak.

"Well, I don't know yet," said Guillen of Uribe, who strained his groin muscle while trying to get out of the way of Keiichi Yabu's inside pitch, and Ozuna, who went for X-rays after getting struck by a Yabu pitch on the left wrist. "We have to wait for [Wednesday] to see how they feel."

"Stuff happens. It was a weird game," Guillen said. "A lot of crazy plays. I only criticize our people on the bench who make errors. All my players on the field are supposed to make errors."

"It was an embarrassing game all around," said Buehrle, who worked at least six innings for his 33rd straight start. "It shouldn't have got to what it led to at the end.

"To go out there and put up some runs against Harden and get the lead like we did, it should have never got to the late innings with the errors. I should have gone out there and stopped them. We should have won this game."

The White Sox didn't hang their heads long after this bizarre setback. Guillen talked to the team in the clubhouse, issuing strict orders to forget about the loss and focus on keeping alive their streak of at least winning the series -- something they have done in all seven pervious sets this season (including three sweeps).

Guillen also didn't want his team buying into the West Coast jinx theory after Tuesday's odd defeat. Speaking of numbers, that record fell to 3-17 for the White Sox at the Coliseum since the 2001 campaign. "I told them to keep your head up and be ready tomorrow," Guillen said. "There's nothing you can do. Just keep playing the way we have been and don't let this game get you down."

There are usually a couple of players on the Sox that flat out suck and this year its Willie Harris. The guy gets caught stealing to end the game against Seattle, he can't field a simple grounder in Oakland....I've had it with him. He can't hit, he can't bunt, he can't steal bases and he can't field....Willie Harris is useless!

Love that Burlymon quote. Yes, the defense sucked, but he should have pitched over it. I also love the fact that the team isn't whining about the umps.

Just win today and the rest will take care of itself.

We are 6-1 and on this road trip, why are we complaining?

If the Sox win tonight, everything will be back to normal (meaning we will find something else to complain about).

Voodoochile, I like your point about the umps. The Sox got screwed on the throwout home call, but utterly screwed on the balk call.

And they're not complaining. They could, but they don't. And you know why that's a good thing?

In boxing, or in the UFC (if you watch that show), there's a saying: "Don't leave it to the judges." Time and time again you'd see some guy who lost on a decision who thought he had it and one of the coaches would say "Well, we both know if you leave it to the judges you put your fate in their hands."

And... the Sox made it close enough where it came down to an ump's decision. A bad ump's decision.

That's why even when they do get screwed by umps I like to see teams play through it--face it, without replay, bad ump calls are part of the game, like weird bounces, the wind blowing out or routine grounders going through people's legs. They're always going to happen.

I also like what Buehrle said, about how it was embarassing that they rang up Mr. 0.44 ERA for that many hits and runs and managed to give it all back with errors, and his lackluster pitching.

Oh well. Lesson learned. Let's move on. 141 games to go!

As for the umps, Bruce Froemming was behind the plate last night... his missing a 'bang bang' play [which is usually called an out] at the plate is his mulligan for the year, because Froemming isn't a rookie. He's been around since 1971 and shouldn't miss those calls.

On the injuries, it's good to see Widger is stepping it up with AJ missing for a few days. He's proving adequate. I was a little surprised about Burke not making the team, but he isn't doing much in the minors.

Randar68

but he isn't doing much in the minors.

And he never has, which is why the love-affari in the offseason based on scattered at-bats was so ludicrous.

Hope Widger starts again today with the off-day there to help AJ be ready to go this weekend.

A serious question for anyone who has ever umped...what is the CORRECT position for the umpire to be in for that play? Hawk kept saying he was out of position, but I thought he was in position...in front of the plate. He certainly can't be behing the plate on that, can he?

The problem was that his view of the play was blocked by the catcher. He should have been off to the side a bit because it was a pretty routine bang-bang play where the action is on the third base side of the plate. It DID look like he was out of position enough that he couldn't see Widger blocking the plate.

Thread summary: Harris is a chump. Froemming is a chump. Both blew plays /calls they should have made. Injury bug very scary.

Gotta say, though, Dye has been pretty chump-tacular in his own right. I want to expect him to make up for it today, but I just fear it will lead to a bunch of pop-ups as he tries to hit a 6-run-homer in every AB.

That just can't be true unless Ozzie/KW dumped Willie in the Bay with cement shoes last night. They're either saying Willie can't beat out Crede at SS defensively, or that they'd rather live with the subpar D at SS & 3B to get Widger's bat in ahead of Willie's.

Actually, with an off-day tomorrow, this lineup makes some sense. It gives some guys who are banged up a couple of days to heal, and if the team can pull out a win, bonus. The team is already guaranteed at least six wins out of eight games on the road trip. The injury that hurts the most, besides Uribe, is obviously Ozuna, as he can play anywhere on the infield. Now Crede must play short, necessitating that a guy like Widger play third. I'm comfortable with Harris at second. Remember, the season is a marathon, not a sprint.

If we make it through 9 innings it'll be amazing.

Why not Tadahito at short. At least he's played there.

If people are hurt, what choice is there?

That's an interesting question, actually. Assuming that Uribe, Iguchi, and Ozuna can't play, and there's no time to call anybody up, what lineup do you use today?

"DJ what's the trouble? Uh... what's the glove for?"

"This? Oh, nothing. I was just down on the field running some sprints. Yep, it feels good to get warmed up every now and then."

:hawk
"I... see..."

:DJ
"Yep, yep, yep. Damn, I feel like a 30-year-old. Hell, I feel like a rookie!"

:hawk
"Yeaaaahhhhhh..."

*suddenly very interested in a newspaper*

"I think I'm gunna head down to the clubhouse and see how Ozzie's doin. Let him know I'm feeling really limber this afternoon. Know what I'm saying?"

:hawk
"I guess!"

Tadahito is not even playing.

Gotta say this is the first time ever that going into a game I feel we have no chance. Prove me wrong, Sox!

Neither Crede nor Widger have ever played these positions in the majors.

Uribe = Wally Pipp? ... :rolling: (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/misc.php?do=getsmilies&wysiwyg=1&forumid=5#)

Can you imagine what a win today would do for the team's confidence? It would be HUGE. If they lose, no big deal because a couple of guys were playing out of position and key starters were out. Here's the real question. What would be worse, Crede at short with Widger at third or Ross Gload anywhere in the outfield?:o:

He's apparently a little hurt, too. If not, I'd have to assume it would be him at second and Harris at short (or the reverse) and Crede where he belongs.

Why not let Konerko Catch, he was drafted at that position, and Play Gload at first?

I hope Oakland hits a lot of pop outs.

Do unearned runs count against the PTC? if so I might want to change my pick!

Hmmm....Ronney 7 Farmer just said Uribe & Iguchi "could play if needed", and that Iguchi's deal is a sore shin. I'dve hoped he could play through that to give us a fighting chance, esp with tomorrow's off day.

Apparently Dye said he could come in & play 2B if needed. Ozzie said "if we need that, we're in big big trouble". I suppoes big trouble isn't defined as your 3B playing SS and your backup C playing 3B?
:?:No, that's big trouble all right. Dye playing 2B is big, big trouble. I assume big, big, big trouble would involve Harris behind the plate.:o:

It could be worse, we could be starting a lineup including Jose Macias, Neifi Perez, Todd Hollandsworth, & Henry Blanco......take solace where you can.

Does this remind anyone else of playing MVP?

I seemed to have moved all these guys around in these positions before... but that was in a VIDEO GAME.

Good thing Freddy doesn't know what a groundball is.
I'm sorry, but this is the 1,243,523th time I have seen this crap posted, and it's just not true. :angry:

His GO/AO with the Sox last season as 1.35, and this year it is 1.34. Strikeout pitchers tend to give up more flyballs than groundballs, but that hasn't been the case with Garcia in his stint with the Sox.

Crede just turned a nice double, so maybe these guys will step it up.
