So many nice defensive plays!! Great win tonight :bandance:

Rowand's assist and diving catch in the same inning 7th(?), and Crede's diving stop on a difficult one-hop and throw were three HUGE plays to help the Sox towards victory.

Garland is the first AL pitcher with 10 wins.

I'm now officially on the Neal Cotts bandwagon.

Crede hit the ball well today.

What's with our pitchers driving in runs? Comical.

delben91
06-11-2005, 12:28 AM
Uribe, Crede, and above all, Rowand, all taking away hits, and in Aaron's case...runs.

Garland was outstanding for 6 innings, and got through 7 nicely. Cotts was masterful yet again, what new, and the clutch hitting continues. Even Timo converting on the hit and run.

I can't get enough of it. GO SOX!!

I'm with Brian.We are rating difficulty of play, not game situation. Rowand's catch was nice, but the ball wasn't even inches off the turf, it had probably a foot of air. Uribe had to have cat like reflexes into the hole and a cannon to get the runner. That grows on less trees than than running straight in and diving to catch a ball, in my opinion.

This was probably the best game of the year. We got a solid pitching performance, scored our usual 4 runs in our usual way and added key insurance runs when we needed to, the bullpen did their part, and the defense was just spectacular--four outstanding plays if you count Rowand's misplay which turned into an assist (it was still a great throw).

If you play like this in the playoffs, you're gonna go a long way. We'd probably be facing stiffer competition than Woody Williams, but if you pitch and catch like that, it's almost hard to lose.

Great all-around game! The pitching was on the ball (no pun intended)- starting and relief; the hitting wasn't out of this world, but it was more than sufficient to win in a pitcher's ballpark; and the defense was strong! My uncle, who is a San Diegan and is convinced they lose every time he watches them on t.v., witnessed a great game out there tonight. I'm awaiting his call and am curious to hear what the "Mighty 1090" Padres play-by-play guys have to say about us on their postgame show! Here's to Buehrle going out there tomorrow night and winning the series! :cheers:

About 4350 N. Milwaukee, on the east side of the street, right next to those new condominiums at Pensacola & Milwaukee.

The food service was lacking, to say the least, and our waitresses were arguing about which would serve our table, so I probably won't be returning for another few months to give them time to get their act together. But they do have about 6 flat screens for a not big room, and a decent selection of beers and food, so for that area I'll take it.

I said Rowand's catch was the play of the game. That ball was sinking, and I have to admit I didn't think he was going to get to it. That's why I jumped 10 feet off the couch and yelled so loud that the little lady came running from the other room. That was a hell of a play that saved two runs. If Rowand is a split second off on that full-out dive, that ball might roll to the wall.

No apology necessary. Any slob could have come out of the crowd and stopped the ball and not made the throw. Guess what? The run still would have scored, and there'd be a guy on first. If Rowand misses that ball in the 7th, then the game would have been tied at that point. That's why the Rowand catch is the play of the game. Maybe the Uribe play was more difficult- I'll give you that (but it's still damn close). But, speaking situationally, I think Rowand's was more important.

Two great plays. Rowands was more important perhaps, but Crede, Rowand and Uribe made amazing plays that were pretty close to difficulty. No winners for the argument of who's better here, the important thing is how awesome our D was tonight.

There are two reasons to say we caught the Padres at a good time. First, their offense is really struggling, as we saw tonight. Second, we miss Peavy and Eaton, who are dominating the NL. On the other hand, we throw our three best pitchers. But that happens all year. You have to take care of teams no matter what the matchups, which is why you have to field a top-quality team every day. There are some days where the pitching matchups are a slam dunk, like when Claudio Vargas faced Johan Santana. No surprise it ended 10-0. If I'm a D'Back fan I'm glad I had Vargas and not Vasquez out there.

Is that in "The Glen"? I work close to there, but haven't seen that yet. I still need to get to the new Wildfire at Patriot & Lake.

Yep, exactly. It's right in the middle next to the movie theater. They have a really nice menu. We went up there a couple of Sundays ago, and I ordered a steak sandwich with sweet potato fries. Both were amazing...the fries were suprisingly good. Lots of tv's in there too...looks like a cool place to hang out after work if you're in the area.

There are two reasons to say we caught the Padres at a good time. First, their offense is really struggling, as we saw tonight. Second, we miss Peavy and Eaton, who are dominating the NL. On the other hand, we throw our three best pitchers. But that happens all year. You have to take care of teams no matter what the matchups, which is why you have to field a top-quality team every day. There are some days where the pitching matchups are a slam dunk, like when Claudio Vargas faced Johan Santana. No surprise it ended 10-0. If I'm a D'Back fan I'm glad I had Vargas and not Vasquez out there.


I understand all this, but its still a bit disheartening the best team in baseball gets their pitcher his 10th win, with some wicked leather thrown around, and Giles going yard (pretty big name) for the other team.. and the highlights for the game were about 2 seconds. Maybe Sportscenter has some better coverage, I wanna see Uribe's play again, and Crede's.

If you play like this in the playoffs, you're gonna go a long way. We'd probably be facing stiffer competition than Woody Williams, but if you pitch and catch like that, it's almost hard to lose.

It's funny how time changes things. When I was living in SD a few years back, Woody was the ace. And an ace he certainly was! Just goes to show how solid a team SD has become. I still love Klesko, Nevin, and Hoffman to this day. Which is why I'm even more glad to beat them. I'm happy to have them have a nice season, as long as it's not at our expense. On a side note: The new park looks great. I used to have to slum at the Q (what a crap-hole that was). One more reason I never became an NL fan.

One more thing: I've been listening to the Padre Spanish language station, and it's solid commercials. That must suck. I hope our boys (the fans) got a Rubio's Baja-style fish taco at the game. Those things are great. I'm salivating at the thought.

Don't let the ESPN people dictate to you how important their opinions are. Enjoy this! I am! Just enjoy it, because it will continue to be a special season for many logical reasons:

1. Look at the White Sox dugout during games - they appear so confident.
2. Look at the White Sox players when they play the field, and when they come up to bat - positive body language is more obvious.
3. Look at the White Sox players after victories - they expect to win, because their demeanor says so.

These are signs that make the intagibles visible to most people. A good friend and I were talking about the Sox yesterday. We both agreed that althought we cannot ingore the Twins, we can't fret over their game results either. The fact is, the White Sox are the pacesetters, and true leaders always focus more on what they do, than what the others do.

In other words - just keep it going!

He's due for a slump. The word is getting out on him, it's been two months now, so that means it's adjustment time. He picked a great time to go in a slump though I must say. We don't really need him right now. When he was hot, we would've been lost without him. Case number 114 of everything falling into place this year.

Well, we can only hope that they can get anywhere near what the Bulls did. First, they need to win a championship. The White Sox are playing great right now... then again, they really have yet to play poorly for an extended stretch. Lets see how long they can keep it up.

PeteWard, Iguchi will heat up again at some point (the others, especially Rowand and Dye, have picked it up nicely) - I voted for Iguchi to be our lone position all-star rep. I figure that at least two of the Sox starters will get selected, as well as a bullpen pitcher from the Sox staff.

Anyway, next Sox game for me will be in six days, 6/17 against the Dodgers. I will pick up one of those awesome '59 Sox caps, and more importantly, another Pale Hose winner.

I think Hito sacrifices more at bats than any other hitter on the MLB-best White Sox. Not only does he take a lot of hittable pitches that he might otherwise swing at--because he's allowing Pods to steal--but Hito also intentinally grounds out to second to allow Pods to advance, hurting his batting average. I guarantee his batting average would easily be over .300 had he hit for himself and not for the MLB-best Chicago White Sox.

Tadahito Iguchi values team success more than personal batting average. And I value him for it. And he's so freaking clutch it's impossible not to appreciate him.

chidonez
06-11-2005, 01:27 AM
People. Please remember that Gooch is still facing new pitchers on a daily basis, regardless of the fact that many are during interleague play. What Ichiro did was insane. What we can expect from our own dear Iguchi is that he's going to get better and better as he gets to know the pitchers. KW and Ozzie must have known that when they signed him. It's a tough role to step into. I like the guy, especially after several years of almost nothing at 2B! I'm out.

Yeah, professional at bat by Timo. He knew what he had to do with the run and hit on, and then he executed it to first-third us.

He had a clutch two-run shot last sunday against Cleveland.

That was the definition of clutch. Late in a game that the Sox were losing 3-1, he jacked a two-run home run to tie a game that didn't look promising. 8th or 9th inning, IIRC?

Very ironic that Hito doesn't ever swing for the fences, but somehow comes up with the big home runs when really needed.

It was okay - can't really call it much of a party. A lot of families and people (men and women both) of all ages were there. My brother won it and they told him that he could bring as many people as he wanted - we had a group of about 10 so it was a good time with friends. They had 3 giveaways - two free hotel weekends at both Hiltons downtown and a $500 gift certificate for John Chicco's Menswear - none of which anyone I knew won. The 'party' though, included admission ($2), a program ($2), and a brat, chips and cole slaw so it was a nice night out for an okay price - unless you wanted to bet on horses. It was overall a good time though.

Disputed call plays a big role in Padres loss to White Sox (http://www.northcountytimes.com/articles/2005/06/11/sports/professional/padres/23_11_366_10_05.txt)

Article is a good read. From SD point of view, it was a bad call -- Nevin being called out on Rowand's throw in the 7th -- that was the turning point. I don't think it comes across as sour grapes, but, rather, a legitimate disagreement. There are also some nice words of praise for the Sox. For example:

"We battled and had a couple of opportunities late," Giles said. "We heard a lot about the White Sox. We heard they were an aggressive team that played great defense.

"Their defense tonight kept us from a couple of big innings."

Look at it the other way, he just knows the hitters. If you look at that 9th inning, the first hit wasn't hit very hard at all. Rowand almost made a nice catch on it. The Uribe play wasn't hit hard either, just in a tough hole. The Nevin hit to Crede that he dove for was the hardest hit ball in the inning. The last one was hit decently but not exactly a smash and right at Crede. I wouldn't say the Padres had any special advantage against Hermanson that last inning.

I said Rowand's catch was the play of the game. That ball was sinking, and I have to admit I didn't think he was going to get to it. That's why I jumped 10 feet off the couch and yelled so loud that the little lady came running from the other room. That was a hell of a play that saved two runs. If Rowand is a split second off on that full-out dive, that ball might roll to the wall.


I was at the game, right behind home plate, and Balls were dying quick in the heavy air at Petco. That fly ball looked like Rowand wasn't going to have to move too much, and then it just started dropping. He got on his horse and made an outstanding play that saved some runs, but it wasn't the play of the game.
The play of the game came in the 7th inning on a fall ball over the screen into foul territory right behind our seats where a well oiled Sox fan took a tumble out of his seat over the rail 6 feet down "head plant" on the walkway below his seat. You could probably hear it from 2 sections over, and to all fans horror and amazement, he returned to his seat. At the stretch, the stadium camera panned on our new found celebrity, icepack held to head, and when he realized he was on the big screen, he promptly turned around to show his Sox Jersey, and all the Sox fans, and a good number of Padres fans erupted in applause at the anonymous Sox fans gritty determination to support his team. That my friend, was the play of the game.

It was very close. But, it looked like Crede tagged him before his foot hit the bag.

Maybe he never felt the tag because he slid with his foot under his butt and that is exactly where Crede came in with the tag.

Does anybody else think Ozzie should of made Pods bunt over Timo to 3rd base with no outs in 8th inning? Pods is our best bunter in the team and I'm sure he would have sacrificed himself to get that run in. Iguchi could have got the job done with the sac fly, that would of been a easy insurance run.

About 4350 N. Milwaukee, on the east side of the street, right next to those new condominiums at Pensacola & Milwaukee.

The food service was lacking, to say the least, and our waitresses were arguing about which would serve our table, so I probably won't be returning for another few months to give them time to get their act together. But they do have about 6 flat screens for a not big room, and a decent selection of beers and food, so for that area I'll take it.

i went for a beer or two.
