Brian Anderson saved the day on defense robbing Hafner of a 2 run 2B.

No chance in Hell Mackowiak ever makes that catch.

If only Anderson could hit even .240.

Jermaine is the man of the hour though. Great effort by Vazquez, though his pitch counts are always sky-high.

Half a game back at the end of the day though, so I'll take it no matter how it comes to be.

Great game tonight. Another come-from-behind win. Jermaine is awesome and tonight proved that he is a legitimate MVP threat this year. Our 3-4-5 hitters won the game for us in the 8th.

Also, don't forget about the jams that Javy got us out of. Sure you can say he put us in the jams, but if he didn't get out of those jams, this is an entirely different game. We were very, very, very fortunate that all we allowed in those 6 innings of jams were 4 runs.

All in all, good win tonight. Let's take it to CC tomorrow and hopefully get back into 1st place tomorrow!

Good game, great win! That is why BA should be out there every day. I was glad to see that he got some appreciation from the crowd. And what can you say about Jermaine Dye? On his way to an MVP?

Mackowiak in defensively for Pods in the ninth? Must be something wrong with Pods.

Great play by Uribe on the grounder in the hole. On the flip to second, since the Sox won, we'll just credit Grady Sizemore for hustle.

Pods has had a rough year defensively. I can think of three balls he flat out dropped, including one tonight. And he's kicked a few singles into doubles this year too.

Looking at those scores, you would think that they would be much less scoring in those games, considering who is pitching. I remember the 5/30 game hyped up as the pitcher's duel of the season which was not the case. BTW, the pitcher's duel of the season was that Friday night game at USCF Buehrle against Santana where Thome hit that two run blast to put us up one in the seventh.

Although, the first match did have a three hour rain delay.

They showed the interview during the game. It was just the same old Ozzie.

And I missed the postgame interview, but from Scott Reifert's blog:

After tonight's game, Ozzie Guillen announced that after lengthy pregame conversations, the club had decided to continue to go with Brian Anderson in center field.

"This team is built around pitching and defense," Guillen said.

The decision was made before Anderson's amazing, run-saving catch against the left-center field wall.
Thank you, it's about time.

Ease up on Pods, it was the only ball hit to him, and he messed it up, but I think he anticipated hitting the wall too soon. Mackowiak isn't a magician out there either, but he has a better arm

Gave Dye his props, but also a great night for Konerko, had a great line. Also, everyone 1-5 scored a run (let's ignore the bottom of the order though :redface: But there were some hangwiffems)

I missed following the end of this game. When I left work, I checked and saw Dye had just hit a home run to make the score 4-3. After stopping for groceries on the way home, an accident 20 feet from my turnoff diverted me into a 12-mile detour because of the scarcity of roads where I live. Actually, it would have been a 12-mile detour if there hadn't been a fatal accident blocking traffic in the other direction, several miles from home. After leaving my car in a church parking lot and walking home with groceries, I was sure the Sox were going to lose.

I noticed a couple of things, though. Both bullpens blew saves tonight. The Tigers' bullpen performed worse tonight than the the Sox and Indians combined. In the case of the Sox and Indians, maybe it was just a matter of good hitters rising to the occasion rather than the bullpen sucking.

It sounds like it is important for the Sox to have their best defensive team on the field. That's the team I would usually field, anyway.

In fairness to Wedge, Dye was 0-6 lifetime against Betancourt and there was a lefty (AJ) on deck.

But yeah, it was still a dumb move anyway. Dye's about as hot as a sunspot right now.

I don't think you can technically blow a hold. I'm pretty sure it's recorded as a blown save, though I'm not 100% sure.

Essentially it's a save situation until a new pitcher comes into the game.

No such thing as a blown hold. It counts as a blown save because the pitcher was on the hill was in line for a save at the time it was blown.

I'd also like to mention that I called JD's home run in the chat today. Of course, I called Anderson's home run too, he just forgot to hit it :redface:.

The guy next to me called the Hafner home run, while I called the 2-RBI hit by Dye 2 pitches before his hit (I thought it was gonna be a double, but was close enough).

Holds, not saves.

Any time a relief pitcher has the lead after the fifth inning and loses the lead, it is a blown save. There is no such thing as a blown hold, but I'm sure the league still counts blown saves for middle and set-up relievers. It is irrelevant that Cotts would not have stayed in to finish the game. Having blown the lead, he never had the opportunity, but the point is moot.

Most vulture pitchers, those who rack up a lot of wins, such as Barry Jones with the White Sox some years ago, have a high number of blown saves.

I didn't see the game, but I am certainly glad the Sox won.
However, Coop has A LOT of work to do with the pitchers, Vazquez in particular. This is a guy who has always gone over 200 innings in a season, and he is pitching 5 and 6 innings every game? He really needs to stop wasting pitches and get his count down.

Let's knock that fat **** around tomorrow.

Total, classic, White Sox victory action. We damn near lost our minds when JD got the two RBI knock. Anderson's catch was equally awesome but what was also amazing was the fact that he was able to one-hop a throw to third to hold the runner at second after smashing into the wall!

:bandance:

The only "sour" moment of the night was the jag-bags leaving the parking lot that decided to grab a decal off of the pdimas father-figure's car. Some helpful Sox fans a few cars back alerted us to the situation. We got the decal back but some dudes in the offending vehicle felt it best to get out and try and start something with us. We tried to convince them to just get back in their car but they thought throwing a sucker punch in skottyj242's direction was a better idea. Chips, the WSI drinking team did you proud as we threw a few punches and sent the idiots packing. Drillrods.

I'm not being negative, nor does it really matter now as JD brings it!!, but dont ya think when Thome walked we shoulda pinch run for him? My dad and I were wonderin' why, as were alot of peeps sittin' by us. I was thinkin' Gload would be the choice available off teh bench, and maybe(we'll never know) he coulda scored off Paulies hit. All worked out in the end, but just wonderin' what everyone thought about that. My thought was ya gotta play for the tie, before ya play for the win, so if I'm coachin', I think I woulda put in a runner for big Jim. Thoughts??

Because there were two outs when he was on first. No need to pinch run. Besides, what happens if the game goes into extra frames? You'd remove your best hitter from the lineup.

Yeah, of course I'm going to try. But when we got Pods in, that was for the final roster spot, which is easier because there are only like 5 guys and it starts from scratch. I don't know if Dye is too far behind, but he's definately having a better season than that ego-maniac Manny Ramirez, what a crock that he will probably get a starting spot.

It wouldn't make much of a difference. The players have shown that they are every bit the imbeciles the average fan is.
Players vote on gold gloves. Gold gloves hardly go to the best defensive players anymore. Instead, they go to good hitters at every position. Jeter has maybe the worst range of any regular shortstop, but he has won the last 2 gold gloves. They hear a name and say "oh, I have heard of him. He must be good defensively." It is like an 8th grader voting his lazy, dumb friend for class president over someone who would actually take the job seriously. Gold Gloves don't go to the right people, and players would do as bad a job in picking all stars.

A perfect day today!

First the WCSF luncheon. Ozzie was excellent and let us know before the media did that a meeting had occurred in which Anderson was told he would be staying and was informed of what was expected of him. It also turns out that Chris Singleton talking baseball with Ozzie makes for an entertaining afternoon. Spent lunch at the table with Ozzie, Singleton, and Scott Reifert.

Then back home to get my tickets and warmer clothes and back to the ballpark. After the first inning, I was afraid that corpseball was going to make another uninvited appearance. Especially after some of those 10-pitch innings our offense handed Cliff Lee.

I was encouraged when Dye hit that homer, but after Anderson's catch, just seeing the way those guys were behaving in the dugout, I KNEW we'd come back. Bad Bobby gave me a scare, but that's all it was, thank heavens.

Interesting to recall that Jermaine Dye was hitting .175 at the end of April, 2005, and only .228 at the end of May, 2005. Anderson has had 123 AB, compared to 171 for Dye in April and May, 2005. I don't know how to find Dye's BA after 123 AB in 2005, but I'll bet it was close to .200. Hard to remember that now, and it might be hard to remember Anderson's slow start by next year at this time.

Ease up on Pods, it was the only ball hit to him, and he messed it up, but I think he anticipated hitting the wall too soon. Mackowiak isn't a magician out there either, but he has a better arm


Actually, there may be something wrong with Pods - he showed no speed around the bases in the 1st. Ozuna could have run past him.
