I thought that was a great article. I think that final Bull Durham quote sums up our pitchers very well. When they get to thinking about what they're gonna do it has always led to disaster

I was just talking about this with one of my buddies, wondering if/when the media was going to catch on. AJ is calling a hell of a game for Buehrle, and Widger has to get a lot of credit for Garland's fast start eventually.

I was starting to worry only I appreciated the job these two have done, and the lack of credit.

Another note on Widger, since becoming a White Sox he's hit his first ML home run in 5 years, and double in 2 years. Glad he's coming out his offensive shell on our squad, let's hope he explodes with some confidence.

This just confirms my opinion of all the BS about AJ prior to the season...that it was exactly that - BS.

The South Siders also have gone from allowing the most home runs in the AL last season (224) to the league's fewest (16) so far in 2005.

I think that line is one of the biggest things to think about this year. A large portion of the games we lost last year were due to the long ball. Those "one bad inning[s]" of Garland's were often caused by a 3-run shot or something of that nature, and Garcia was hurt repeatedly by giving up homeruns. Now that that is no longer a big issue (at least so far in the season), it's giving us a much better chance of staying in close games and not letting other teams run away with the lead. Hopefully this trend continues throughout the season. If it does, I like our chances.
