Trade Konerko and Thome for Rowand. He's super clutch and would never go 0-5.





2.5 and rising.

Nice to get a win after a couple of bad games to start this trip. Things tend to settle down after you get the first win on a tough road trip. I think we'll see the Sox play better baseball in Cleveland.

The Sox made it harder on themselves than they needed to. Garland was outstanding through five, and then he lost it all at once. But I thought McCarthy and Jenks did a fine job in relief. Let's get a winning streak going tomorrow.

Can everyone calm down? It's May and the Sox are doing quite well notwithstanding the fact that they have the bullseye on their collectiuve chests as reigning World Champs, started out 1-4, had a starter go on the DL and a CF and SS doing nothing at the plate.

Champs don't get swept.

Agreed, but, given that we had 6 on the board whilst he was in the game, it's good enough for me.

In the end, it doesn't matter how many total runs he gives up, as long as he gives up fewer than the opposition.

That sux. He was pitching inside a whole lot more than normal. Before the inning with the home runs, I'm pretty sure he'd only given up 2 hits. It's not that he was bad today, it was 2 home runs that scored 3 runs.

Yesssss!!! I think Mackowiak is starting to get some good confidence in his hitting!!! That's a great thing! Now, he needs to work on his defensive positioning in the field.

Decently pitched game by Garland, and Jenks was lights-out!

Let's hope Vazquez can hold Cleveland's offense down!

Go Sox!

First: As a Sox fan first, D'Backs fan second, I apologize for Overbay and Glaus.

Second: Nice to see Cleveland getting this out of their systems.

Third: Let's hear it for the Flubs. Through five, they've given up, what, 5 or 6 home runs? However, I think the Wrigley Field Boo-birds should just **** and take a look around. Hello, losers? Looking for someone to blame? How about YOURSELVES? Until you people stop showing up in droves, the Tribsters have no reason to put a winning team on the field. (Of course, Sox fans have been saying this for years.)

Fourth: It's good to be king.

Happy, happy, happy.....:bandance: :bandance: :bandance:

Bonderman is one helluva pitcher; I'll take him on my team...

The Tigers will be there in the end; their starting pitching will hold up (sans Rogers).

I see this division tightening; Cleveland will bring up Sowers which tightens up their starting staff and Minny has some strong starters too: Liriano, Santana, Radke, & Bonser. Plus, that stadium deal is like a B12 shot for the Twins.

Great baseball is ahead... Now, if we could just dump interleague play and get back to scheduling that provides head to head competition down the stretch...

Glaus moved back off the plate so he could get to that inside pitch...so a perfect time for a slider away, no? Instead they went with the same pitch on the inside corner, and Glaus, who was now set up perfectly, creamed it. AJ has to take part of the blame on that one.

Great win today. We really needed that! This team is too good to be losing series. However, despite how well the Tigers are playing, the Sox are only 2 1/2 games out of the lead.

Okay, White Sox, It's time for one of those 8-game winning streaks we had a lot of last year. :smile:

I did not see the game simply read the recap and just watched the highlights on Comcast Sports Chicago Sports Nite.

It looked to me to be ugly, ugly, ugly. Garland had his big inning breakdown (and with two outs to boot!) but let's not lose site of the fact that they won. Coupled with Detroit finally losing a game (only their second in the last 17!) and today was a good day.

Say what you want about Ozzie but he knows how to push their buttons...they actually came out with some fire today.

Oh speaking of being flat, just thought of a possible reason why they looked like it on Friday and Saturday. Remember the Sox had played six straight very emotional games against the Cubs and frank Thomas' A's. I guess it's only natural to have a 'let down' against the 'all powerful' Toronto Blue Jays.

I'm not approving of it and I don't like it but I could see why it happened.

Let's play better in Cleveland.

Since the minnesota game Jenks has been just dominant. Everyone who was worried about bobby can stop now, hes got his velocity and is throwing the curve for strikes. The Oakland comeback, he was absolutely filthy and we should see 40+ saves out of baaaaad bobby jenks. When hes got the hammer working for him he is unhittable

Thanks much for the welcome. Should be fun this year around here I'm sure. As far the team regrouping I think they will do just fine in the games to come. Yanks got Johnson tomorrow and he's been struggling in the early going.

These excuses for Jon have to stop.

How about Vernon Wells crushing two balls into the second deck about 10 feet from the foul pole?

He was just as unlucky as he was lucky today.

exactly. seems to me that in EVERY game there are at least a few balls that have home run distance that go foul off of each starting pitcher. jon pitched just fine today, barring what happened in the sixth. kudos to the people mentioning jon working the inside part of the plate, he has the fastball to do it and it really is his key to success... along with that sinker. big game tomorrow against a tough lefty in lee, should be interesting to see if the sox can get to him.

YR ERA
2003 5.56
2004 4.89
2005 4.57
2006 4.57

Hasn't pitched 200 innings yet, and likely won't this year either. Somehow he managed to win 14 games last year with a BAA of .271. Right now, he's a serviceable #5, but probably 2 or 3 in Detroit. Here, he'd be #7.

Somebody called in one of the sportsblab stations yesterday and mentioned that several Sox players were quoted as saying, "That's just Ozzie being Ozzie." But apparently Ozzie being Ozzie works because they actually executed pretty well when they needed to.

The one exception to that would be Uribe's holding his at out for a bunt about 15 minutes before each pitch so everyone knew they could set up a play to catch the lead runner at third base. Nice job, Juan!

Garland is the most effective he's been all year at pitching inside, and some people have to mention long foul balls. Hint to dorf: A long foul ball means the pitcher is being effective because he's pulling the inside strike pitch too much.

This game salvaged the series, obviously. It was a brutal weekend. Friday and Saturday it seemed the Sox bats were utterly shackled (except for Konerko's two solo shots on Friday). Where the heck was Jim Thome this weekend? At least Garland held it together for a win yesterday. There were pockets of Sox fans throughout the dome, especially on Saturday and Sunday. I expect better when the world champions return in August.

Exactly. I'd say this is Jon's best outing so far (but I have missed a few cos of school-related stuff), he was pitching inside much more. I was pretty happy with his outing and so was Jon...


I felt great, I felt strong, Garland said after allowing 5 runs on 7 hits in 6 innings to improve his record to 4-2. I had good movement on my pitches and I was aggressive. Before, I was trying to be too fine, trying to make the perfect pitch every time.

Personally, I was intrigued by the aforementioned theory about a 'West effect'...

The Sox went 0-for-how many with him in attendance at Oakland's ballpark?

Or was that the other Bay area WSI guy's fault?
