I'd like to sandwich that 3 game losing streak with two 8 game winners. Garland and Buehrle will get us there.

Great game all around. Hernandez was getting hit hard the first 3 innings or so, even the outs were on line drives, but he settled down after that and pitched a really solid game.

Bats seemed to come alive. Maybe "only" 5 runs, but they were laying out line drives all over the place. They keep that up and some of them will find holes. (Amazing how even in a new uniform, Koskie continues to kill the Sox in the field and at the plate.)

And even if it was a looper off the end of the bat, nice to see Konerko break that 0-26 or so skid.

6 in a row, let's keep it going.

GO SOX!!

GO SOX!!

Looked like The Duke was getting squeezed in the early going; whole buncha pitches coulda gone his way but instead put him in tough hitters' counts. Looked like the zone widened a bit as the game went on. Historical #'s tell me that he also exorcised some Skydome demons tonight. Nice.

Offense looked somewhat better. Paulie, minus the shot at Koskie, still looks lost. I really wish he'd start swinging at some of those first pitch fastballs.

Major props to JD, AJ, Gooch, Hermy, Marte, and the Oz for a nice win tonight!

You know, when I was watching the game on TV, and the Jays went ahead 3-1, something strange happened.

I got that feeling...that feeling where I just sit back, relax, and feel confident that this team will get back into the game and will pull something out.

I haven't hadn't that feeling for years...let's just say, last time I had it, there were three zeros at the top of my calendar.

That's not a healthy feeling to have, even though its there. There's still a lot of baseball left to play, and the Sox haven't hit a lot of the better teams yet. I'm particularly worried by Iguchi; after that 4-for-4 night, it just seems like he's trying too hard to hit everything...he's swinging on 3-0 and 3-1 against pitchers with obvious control problems, he's swinging on the first pitch with Podsednik on first and second base open, etc.

Yeah, Tadahito does seem to be pressing a bit. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for a while though. This is still his first time seeing a pitcher almost every time up at bat. That has to play a role. No way I expected him to be hitting .300+ at this point in the season.

It's hard to rag on Timo since he is so damn clutch most of the time. Even as recently as last Sunday against the Tigers, he had the big homer and the squeeze bunt down the firstbase line. But, he looked like his head was somewhere else tonight. I don't want to speculate though. We'll take the win and hopefully Timo can redeem himself next time. No biggie.

I'd like to sandwich that 3 game losing streak with two 8 game winners. Garland and Buehrle will get us there.

That's the great thing about this starting five. There is absolutely no let-up whatsoever. Garland goes tomorrow, and then Buehrle on Sunday. Who doesn't like those odds? It's unbelievable. I know its early, but this starting five could be something we're talking about 20 years from now like people talk about the '83 team.

Oops...I forgot. Moronotti said we should all take a deep breath and count to 10.

05-06-2005, 09:56 PM
Was Timo sick tonight? He just really looked like he wasn't in any condition to play.

You mean Aaron? Either way, Timo made two mental errors... make that three mental errors, imo;

1) Running from 2B on a blooper hit by AJ [into short RF] that was caught by the Jays second baseman

2) Throwing to the wrong base when charging in from CF on a liner with one out... he threw to 2B on the run trying to double up the runner [he was safe - wasn't close] which allowed the runner on 3B to tag and score.

3) bunting with the go ahead runner on 3B with 1 out... I can't see Ozzie not commenting about that to Timo behind closed doors

Awesome win tonight. El Duque again went out and gave us his all, as you would hope he'd do. He doesnt always look pretty but he usually gets the job done.

It took the offense until the 8th to break through the Jay's defense (not their pitching, we hit that but their infield D was great).

But the big thing is:

22-7

How awesome is that?:D::D::D::D::D:

I'm bitter about '93 too, but not so much as '83. That '93 Jays team was loaded and probably deserved to win.

Honestly, though, any connection between the current Jays and the '93 team is completely lost, for me at least, on those HORRIBLE current uniforms they have. I was looking at those tonight and couldn't figure out what the hell they could have been thinking. Graphite hats....just terrible.

Hernandez was great after the 2nd. I suppose In Minnesota, they give you drugs that make you get clutch bloopers. Pierzynski must still be on those. The Twins probably don't get their shipments until the All-Star break.

As far as all the anti-Timo comments are concerned, I agree. I just dont see how he deserves a spot on this team, let alone the 5 spot in the batting order.

What does he do? He doesnt hit. He doesnt have speed. He plays only mediocre defense. He doesnt perform well in situations where he needs to get the runner in from third. Time to release him

Was anyone else aware of this?

A 106-year-old World War I veteran threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday night's game between the Blue Jays and the White Sox.
Clare Laking climbed out of his wheelchair and made an underhand throw to Toronto outfielder Reed Johnson (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=7118), who autographed the ball.

Laking was a private with Canadian Field Artillery, 27th Batter Force Brigade, serving as a signaler in both Belgium and France.

He lives in a veterans' residence at an area hospital. Link (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2054746&num=2)

I was in the Upper Deck, whooping it up with a young couple who drove up from Chicago. We spotted each others' Sox clothing a couple of sections apart and slowly gravitated towards each other over a couple of innings. By the 5th, we had formed our own section of rowdy Sox boosters, much to the annoyance of the Jays fans around us.

I probably did hear you guys, as I was alert enough to mute the chat before the homer. By the way, DJ's "UH OH" call is not as entertaining now that it's planned. It was better when he was saying it because he was panicking and couldn't articulate any other thought.

Why's everyone gotta catch flack after every game? Timo's a back-up RF, and Ozzie's coaching decisions are winning us games.... NEVER THOUGHT I'D SAY THAT!!! But still. Timo's fine for a back-up, and I like the more solid lineup card. Willie is a fine back-up. Dye has seemed to turn a corner. Paulie will probably turn a corner. Joe turned a corner. They're all headed in the right direction. As long as we are winning, I don't care if Ozzie decides to start himself at clean-up.

"Whoa. Take a deep breath and count to ten, Mr. Sox Fan. Your team is going to fold in the next four months, and I'll be par-tay-ing at Barleycorn in October with all of those HOT 37-year-old divorcee Park Ridge bleacher bums who will make the commute in to see the Cubs clinch the NL Central and also get a piece of my "hugeness" *and*(might I add) my fully attached retina."

I agree, let go of those painful memories.

I felt the Jays were slightly better than the Sox in '93. The series that I had real trouble dealing with was against the Orioles in '83. I felt that the Sox were the best team that year.

However, I have worn my Sox cap for seven straight hours today (and counting as I type this).

The Jays' uniforms are brutal (graphite/gray must go), but the bird design on the shirt and the cap kind of rocks.

Our Sox have the best uniforms in baseball, classic script style (notice the black tops are now worn at home and on the road). So to honor the Pale Hose look, I change my signature . . .

Ladies and Gentleman, I officially declare the par-tay switch has been shifted to the "ON" position! Send in the bananas!

A White Sox winner in Toronto...YES!!!!

Baby Fisk, were you the guy who ran onto the field and delayed the game ? :redneck

(Sorry, didn't see the earlier post asking the same thing.:redface: )

I thought people only ran onto the field at The Cell....

When he did that, I wanted to make like Elvis and shoot out the T.V. That was REALLY dumb. Thankfully, the win helps us put that behind us.....

I remember reading a quote [somewhere] about Ozzie telling his team before the start of the season that he'd tolerate physical errors, but not mental errors... I don't have an agenda against Timo, but he did not have a good game between the ears.

Regarding his bunt attempt, from all accounts the squeeze wasn't on... with 1 out and the go ahead runner on 3rd, Timo should be thinking to get decent wood on the ball and drive it to the outfield... but what the heck do I know.

Good thing I have no firearms, or I'd been also ready to cap the TV. :D:

That's always been the case, only the last few years they've worn the blacks a lot more than they ever did before. This year it seems they wear them every day.

Great win! If we can get by Toronto and Baltimore I will feel a lot better. I am concerned with our production against good teams (the offense will need to step it up) but tonight was VERY encouraging and hopefully we can win the series with Baltimore and Toronto :D:

Did you guys see Konerko asking for the baseball after he got his hit ? That was funny, and what a big hit it turned out to be. He moved Crazy Carl from first to third, and then they both scored on A.J.'s "ducksnort". That turned out to be the ballgame right there.

I saw it and enjoyed it. The visual protion of the telecast was good, but I hate to be critical of the whole broadcast experience. It was brutal (DJ's home run call must be upgraded!). I feel sorry for Donn Pall.

Wow, what a game, I also am getting to the point where I dont seem to worry much when this team falls behind a bit. They keep showing over and over that they can overcome a deficit and come back and win. Great pitching tonight, El Duque seemed to be a bit squeezed til later in the game, but the team overcame it. Great to see. 22 wins, just amazing. Keep it up, lets get a W again tommorrow.

I knew I should have packed the alternate black when I left for Tampa this afternoon.

Oh well, if that's the biggest Sox dilemna I have this seson, it's going to be a wild ride. :gulp:

What is their W-L percentage in the black jerseys?

Jays uniforms are the worst.

Awesome win tonight. The Sox winning ways are making my Bulls suffering much easier to take.

I left home when it was 3-2, I get home and we won! The beer does taste much sweeter.

That sure looks sweet doesn't it? 11-3 at Home, 11-4 on the road. To all those media prognosticators that predicted the Sox for fourth place in the A.L. Central, I got one question for all those Cubbie luvin' bong smokers......

How you like us now???
