Did Pods actually lose that Sizemore triple in the sun? I wasn't able to see the game.

Beyond that though, yet another nice win, nice team effort all around. Garland wasn't his best, but kept the Sox in it, can't ask for anything more. Looks like the middle of the order is starting to come around just a bit, which is nice to see.

GO SOX!

Well, that certainly got a little interesting. But it's another series win! :bandance:


Crede has homered in 3 of the last 4 games. Those are the only hits he has had, but he also did a nice job moving the runner over today.

Maybe the two off-days helped Konerko...

Yes. Pods started coming in, using his glove to try to block the sun. He gave a shoulder shrug like he couldn't find it, then looked into Uribe. The ball was a good 25 feet behind him and went to the warning track. I didn't see, but some in the chat said he didn't have his glasses down. I'm not sure about that. I wish Pods would have looked in to Uribe a little earlier when he knew that he couldn't see the ball. I'm surprised that wasn't scored an error. But it didn't hurt us, thankfully, so no big deal.

They never give guys an error when they lose one in the sun. You can't catch what you can't see.

If you've ever been out to the Cell for batting practice before a summer evening game, you probably know just what Pods was looking into. Right around 6 p.m., it's always just brutal in left field.

Yeah, I've seen that view before. Actually tried to catch a batting practice ball in left with that sun and ended up misplaying it as I lost it in the sun. It ended up a few rows higher than me.

I can see the point on not giving an error.

Yep, my season ticket package was in LF a couple years ago and every 6:05 start, the sun would be absolutely BRUTAL around that time even with a baseball cap and sunglasses. I imagine it is even worse now that the Upper Deck is lower which probably allows even more sunlight through. Nice win for the Sox. Also nice to see Crede come through in the clutch with a big HR.

With Sabathia on the mound, I doubt he'll put Perez or Harris in there. We might see Ozuna or Everett in LF. I'm sure Widger will spell A.J.

Just got back from the Cell.

Interesting day, starting with the Wizard of Oz-esque weather that hit right around 2:30, probably the closest to a tornado I've seen in a while.

Garland was decent, not great, but just good enough to weasel out of big innings. AJ, any time you want to leg out a line drive that might not be caught, be my guest. The huge inning ending 6-3 DP was a bit of a gift, as it appeared from where I was sitting that Uribe didn't reach second base in time to get the lead runner (and why he didn't toss it to Iguchi, I dunno). Awesome to see so many 2-strike or 2-out hits, especially guys like Rowand and Crede. Big Frank finally got on the hit board for the year. Hermanson got screwed by the weird defense -- I've never seen anyone misjudge a fly ball in the sun as badly as Pods did, and why was Konerko playing so far in on the next play (the single over his head), seeing as it was the batter that was the important run, not the guy on third?

Another thing that was unusual was Cleveland's defensive setups; the shifts they were putting on our batters seemed to be the opposite of what they should have been doing -- they had AJ defended as if he was an opposite field hitter, and same for Konerko, when both guys are bigtime pull hitters. AJ was able to rope one into the RF corner for a double that otherwise would have been a single.

Another series under our belt, and I hope Ozzie goes for the kill tomorrow with his lineup.

:gulp:

I wasn't able to see the game in this area. Just watched the highlights on Comcast. That weather was freaky, extremely black dark skies at one point then bright sun the other.

The Sox sure know how to make things 'interesting' but a win is a win. LOL

What the HELL was he doing with his glasses flipped up? I hear Farmer comment on this all the time and I finally see a prime example. Either put them down or don't wear them! And if you're in left at the Cell, I highly suggest you wear them.

The weather was freaky. I remember just before Pods misplayed that ball, my grandma commented on the sun coming out because all of the sudden it got really bright in the house and everything turned golden orange. Which is weird because I live about 20 miles from the park. The game had no in-game delays, but it absolutely poured like I haven't seen in a long time where I was.

Good post. This was one of the better outings by Hermanson all year because he overcame bad breaks. A couple weeks ago, Dustin was quoted as saying good luck had helped him during his scoreless streak. Well, he had no luck whatsoever today, and he still got the job done.

On an unrelated topic, I am watching the Twins on Minneapolis TV and a-rod just singled to put runners on 1st and 3rd with one out. Sierra just drove in Matsui, and the Yanks are up 4-3 in the top of the 10th. I've never really pulled for Mariano, but here it is.

We were sitting behind Pods in the LF bleachers. The sun was brutal, and the ball was coming out of the shade directly into the solar disc. Just the half inning before Crisp lost one and the shortstop had to save his ass by making a great catch. The thing that kind of bugs me is that I didn't see sun glasses on either of them.

Speaking of which....

Jeff and I were in the booth with Nancy Faust when Buehrle and somebody else started doing the slip 'n' slide thing on the tarp. I couldn't tell who it was, and somebody said it looked like Ozzie. Did anybody get a good look at whoever it was?

Tomorrow will be tough, with Sabathia. I'm going to the game with my 3-year old, but not with the 1-year old - thankfully. I took both of them to the Rangers day game a week ago and a security guard handed my son a foul ball from Tadahito Iguchi. Very cool.

Great game, but strange happenings at the 'ol ballpark! Got down there early (1p) and was roasting in the sun waiting for the gates to open. We went to our seats in 113 and continued baking. I told my friend that it was going to rain, which she denied. Telling her to turn around and look at the ominous sky, she was convinced. I'd called home to see if there'd been a storm in Des Plaines and found out that what was headed the way of the ballpark wasn't going to be pretty. No sooner did I end the 30 second conversation did this eerie sound start coming from above- not sure if it was the wind or rain starting to hit on the roof of the upper deck- and we bailed. I did get some great pictures of the ominous conditions on the new digital camera, though.

We're standing on the concourse and my friend asks me if I think anyone will slide across the tarp, to which I responded, "No way; not in a pennant race! Can't risk injury." Five minutes later, there's Buehrle slip 'n slidin' it across the tarp, only go to back and get Man Soo Lee to join in on the fun. Got a couple great pictures of that silliness! My friend asked me if Ozzie knew what he was up to and I was like, "Are you kidding? He's probably the one who told him to go out there!" The best was after the game when someone from the media asked Ozzie what he thought about one of his best pitchers sliding across the tarp... he had no clue what Buehrle had done, so the media guy was just like, "uh... nevermind," and the room broke out into laughs! :D:

The game itself was good. It was nice to see the Sox match the Tribe +1 in the first inning. Crede and Konerko getting into one was nice to see, especially for Mr. "6-for-my-last-61 going into the game" Crede. Dye and Rowand continue to sting the ball, and Rowand's defense continues to be top notch. When he made that great play at the wall, I yelled, "Rowand, you're mine!" which the guys in front of me found humorous.

All in all, a hot, fun, exciting, but LONG day at the ballpark... and I'm going again tomorrow- Sec. 113, Row 6. There's no better way to spend a summer weekend than at Comiskey Park! :bandance:

Weird day at the old ballpark. To quote Porter from Sandlot I was "baking like a toasted cheeser" walking along the concourse. Then we went up to the fundamentals and one of the workers cleared us out because he said it was gonna rain. Man did it pour for at least a half hour. Great job by the crew getting the field ready to play. In the 1st inning an Indian(I don't know who) lead off the game with a hit and it just died in a puddle in CF. However, things dried up really well.

The 9th inning was pretty weird, I remember thinking "Man Podsednik looks awful shallow on that fly ball", sure enough it lands 25 some feet behind him. Garland was good but not great and it was all enough for a White Sox Winner. I'm happy.

In past years, Garland always melted down in the 5th or 6th inning. He did that in his last start.

Today, he could have melted down in either inning, but didn't. Good sign.
