From the episode C. E. D'oh!

Bart: "I'm Tomokazu Ohka of the Montreal Expos!"

Milhouse:"I'm Estaban Yan of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays!"
Around the time that this episode was being created, MLB was seriously considering contraction, and the two most likely franchises to get the axe were supposed to be Montreal and Tampa. If the contraction had actually occured, then Bart and Milhouse's comments would've made more sense, considering there would be no Expos or D-Rays. Even with both clubs still in existence, it is still ironic because those two clubs are pretty obscure, as are their players. Not many people besides baseball fans would recognize them. An additional nitpick is that the situation (with them representing those players with Bart pitching to Milhouse) would be unlikely, because Yan is a relief pitcher and would probably be pulled in favor of a pinch hitter if he were to go up to bat. Also by the time this episode aired, Yan had been traded away from Tampa. (Since then he has played in Texas and St. Louis.)

MB was amazing. Gooch was clutch. The way this game ended shows the caliber of team the Sox are this year.

This is a textboox 2005 win. Unfortunately for a while it looked like a textbook West Coast loss in the making the way Rowand's dumb ### ripped a grounder right to the shortstop and got Pods thrown out at the plate.

In the end, it was a win that championship teams get despite sucking for 10 innings. And once again, it is all about the pitching, isn't it? Too bad Buehrle didn't get the win. He got hosed. His quest for 20 and the recognition he deserves is not helped by hitting displays like this. But if he gets a ND every time and we still win, I'll take it.

I am not happy with the way we are swinging the bats, but beggars cannot be choosers while we're on the West Coast. We needed this one, and we got it. Hopefully, we can get at least one more in this series. I would be satisfied with a split.

Big thumbs up for Buerhle, Marte, Crede, and most of all, Iguchi.

Nothing like a White Sox winner before going to bed. Buehrle deserved better for putting an end to our losing "ways", but a win's a win, especially those 1-run wins that are becoming so routine.

And I know it's his job, but it was nice to see Uribe lay the bunt down and get Crede to 2nd. It's a small thing, but after his 3-pitch swinging strikeout in the 6th, I was beginning to wonder...

I won't be singing the "Westcoast Blues" tonight. "Westcoast Blues" is a crappy blues song that I made up that, that I sing which recaps how the Sox lost another game on the west coast. There is nothing worse than staying up till midnight, not seeing a winner and singing that damn song as I drown my sorrows in a can of beer.

I just found this on ESPN:

"Chicago has not won a season series in Anaheim since August 1994 posting a 13-38 record at Angel Stadium over that stretch"

You have got to be kidding me! I was there for one of those games. That was right before the 1994 strike. The game I went to the Sox blew out the Angels.

It is true that the middle of our line up did not produce, but I really liked AJ's at bat that started 0 - 2 and then he fouled off about 5 pitches, ran the count full and finally singled to center. He also hit the ball well to leftfield when the leftfielder made the diving catch.

He still seems like he is seeing the ball well!!!!:smile: :rolleyes:

As cold as our bats may appear to be, over the last 4 games we've faced Zambrano, Prior, Santana (who, rookie or not, was pitching like a stud Mon. night), and Colon. Three of those four have displayed the ability to be Cy Young contenders in their careers. We've split those four games against stud pitching, can't complain. Texas' pitching staff will be a welcome sight to our hitters.

I'll be the first to give Carlasuarus some love. He set the tone, even if the rest of the Sox didn't want to follow his lead until the 10th. What a game! Twins won; this could have really set a lot of people off here if the we lost! Man! Buerle pitched a freakn' gem. As good as Colon was pitching, Mark seemed to match him +1. What a great game to watch! Who needs 21-14 games anyway? I love this stuff (although a 11 -4 game in the sox favor wouldn't hurt once in a while especially if its in the sox favor); the last three innings with Buerle slinging arrows at the mound were magical! Way to go gooch; pull it off at the end as well

Great sox win...this will be one to be remembered...mark (no pun in tended) my words

I agree. This is one of those things that probably won't show up in a box score, but AJ must have made Colon throw something like 12 pitches in that at-bat.

I think this ended up being huge because they had to remove Colon (who was dealin') after the 7th, whereas the ever-efficient Buerhle stayed in until the 9th. We got deeper into their bullpen than they got into ours, and good things happened.

What more can you say about Buehrle? Great performance.

I'm a little concerned about this offense, which hadn't scored a run without a solo homer for 28 innings before Iguchi's clutch hit in the 11th tonight, but I like our chances to break out tomorrow. Rowand's at bat in the 9th today was so frustrating! :angry: He had a runner on third and instead of thinking up the middle or to the right side- which he's good at- he chops a ball to SS.

Pods and Iguchi really are the catalysts for this team- even with virtually ZERO production from Konerko and Dye the Sox had the best record in baseball thanks to Pods and Iguchi carrying the load. Now that Konerko and Dye are hitting (sort of...) it's even more apparent they can't do anything without our 1-2 hitters.

And most encouraging of all was Marte! He's been shaky this year, but looked dominant out there tonight! That was great to see.

So here's to you: Buehrle :gulp: Pods/Iguchi :gulp: and Marte :gulp:

SSN721
05-25-2005, 05:42 AM
What a fabulous game despite the lack of offense on either side. I will take it thought, low scoring games are my favorite, it was good to see the Sox regroup after the failure to get Pods in from third. I thought they were done after that. And then really thought they were done after going out so meekly int he top of the tenth. I am so gald this team consistently proves me wrong when I think they are going to lose. :D: Now lets win today and at aleast get a split. :bandance:

I read the first sentence, and it looked like the Sox had lost..I was ready to turn off the computer and start the day off in a bummed out mood. This is what I read: "Mark Buehrle did everything on Tuesday night but get his eighth win. He limited the Angels to one run over nine masterful innings." I about turned off the computer in disgust, and then I kept reading. Sox win! Woohooo! :D:

That play where Pods was thrown out at the play was almost a carbon copy of the play that gave us the win in the season opener against Cleveland. The difference, of course, is that Pheralta booted the ball and Cabrera didn't. Just goes to show how luck plays a role over a 162 game season.

What a win last night. I listened to the end of the game on my walkman in bed...I was drifting asleep when Crede was on third, but Farmio woke me up with "GAP, Left-center...it's going to fall in there and go to the wall!". I was able to stay awake for the first two outs on the Angels half of the 10th, but started to doze again before the final out. What was it, a comebacker to Marte?

Anyway, great win. The PK stop and flip to Buehrle was incredible! Huge, huge win. I just had a feeling like we were going to blow it, but the Sox proved me wrong again.

I liked Ozzies decision to leave Marte in. I think it will be a great confidence booster.Personally, I didn't like the decision. But hey, I'm not "the @%$&#* manager." Still don't understand why he would leave Marte out there in an obvious save situation to face 2 righties to start the inning when Hermanson is available and hasn't pitched much lately. But a win's a win, so I'll take it.

Marte was rolling, why pull him?

You never know what happens with bringing another pitcher in.

I liked the move.

Anyone notice the woman in the white shirt they followed walking through the crowd with the camera?
I think it was around the 5th inning or something. It reminded me of a Cubs broadcast. She was hot though.

But a win's a win, so I'll take it.One of those "righties" was Chone Figgins, a switch hitter who is much more dangerous from the left side of the plate. Leaving Marte in kept him batting from the right side.

Nothing is better than beating the 15 million dollar man with your Gold Glove Ace, who out lasted and outpitched the slob.We have no Gold Glove Ace. We have Mark Buehrle, who is awesome, but he is not a Gold Glove winner. :cool:

I liked the move.It was just an opinion. I don't know how good Marte is historically in 2+ inning outings. I was obviously incorrect that one of the hitters was a switch hitter. Marte has been ptiching better lately, but he has not been good, especially in save situations this year. Hermanson has been fantastic this year in all situations. All of this combined to make me confused as to why Ozzie would stick with Marte. I wasn't mad, I just didn't agree with the decision. I was obviously not right, so that's a good thing.

The Angels brought in a weak pinch hitter to replace Adam Kennedy, a lefty, and then you had Figgins, a switch hitter, and Erstad.

Right decision, especially with the way Marte was dealing. He was basically unhittable last night.

I would not call one win the end of the west coast curse. Maybe you meant to put that in teal. But it is a good win, eventhough the bats are not hitting the ball. Perhaps they need a chicken to sacrifice. The only way to break the west coast curse is to kidnap an elephant and the rally monkey and make them have relations together.

Elephant and monkey DNA just don't splice.

This is the type of win we would have never gotten over the last few years. Great to see us edge out win against a great pitcher like Colon... out West none the less.

I love Mark Buehrle.

Figgins is hitting around .100 from the right side. Ozzie didn't want to turn him around.

From the episode C. E. D'oh!

Bart: "I'm Tomokazu Ohka of the Montreal Expos!"

Milhouse:"I'm Estaban Yan of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays!"

Around the time that this episode was being created, MLB was seriously considering contraction, and the two most likely franchises to get the axe were supposed to be Montreal and Tampa. If the contraction had actually occured, then Bart and Milhouse's comments would've made more sense, considering there would be no Expos or D-Rays. Even with both clubs still in existence, it is still ironic because those two clubs are pretty obscure, as are their players. Not many people besides baseball fans would recognize them. An additional nitpick is that the situation (with them representing those players with Bart pitching to Milhouse) would be unlikely, because Yan is a relief pitcher and would probably be pulled in favor of a pinch hitter if he were to go up to bat. Also by the time this episode aired, Yan had been traded away from Tampa. (Since then he has played in Texas and St. Louis.)

I think it made sense without the contraction happening. The fact they they sais the were Expos and Devil Rays was funny as is

Big thumbs up for Buerhle, Marte, Crede, and most of all, Iguchi.

Carl! Don't forget Carl! We would have been shut out in nine if it weren't for Carl!

Way to go Carl! :bandance: :bandance: :bandance:

I dunno. Ever since the game Marte gave up the winning HR, he's been fired-up BIG TIME. He's poppin' the ball in the mid-90s like he used to and he's really attacking hitters. I have a feeling some one gave him a good old-fashioned reaming about being a little lackadaisical on the mound lately. When he comes in throwing on all 8 cylinders I'm seeing shades of Marte 3 years ago.

That said, I was a little worried about having him in there for a second inning, especially witha 1-run lead. But the way he was dealing, there was no reason to switch him out. I think he's gotten his stuff worked out, and I hope he's pitching the way he's been pitching the last 2 games for the rest of the season.
