Because the game ran so long I was actually able to watch the final two innings here in Idaho. Most impressive performance by everyone on the Sox except Montero who sealed his Triple A fate tonight.

Sure wish the Tigers would co-operate.

I never thought I'd say this, but that performance by Montero makes me want Politte back right now. That guy is terrible, I don't think he's come in without guys nailing the ball everywhere.

Anyway, woohoo! 11-run third, amazing. Go get 'em again tomorrow.

Too bad Riske got thrown out of the game. We can't afford to lose an arm in the pen due to suspension. Much better to lose a starter for five games than a reliever.

It's also too bad that on a day we score 20 runs, we can't get at least seven innings from our starter. We used up a lot of our bullpen in a 20 - 6 route. :(:

The National League is garbage.

We should sweep this series. Too bad Detroit is probably gonna sweep the Brewers as well.

Anyway, great win.:bandance: :bandance: :bandance: GO SOX!!!:gulp:

Wow...can't say enough good things about the offense tonight, and it was good to see Riske proving his cred with his new teammates by protecting them. My guess is that Watson will try to 'make up' for the Tracey mess by gong hard after Riske and Ozzie. just a guess, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Go Sox! Let's do it again tomorrow!

Great game all around except for the typical LaRussa no class Bush League garbage. I'll hate the bastard forever.

The bottom of the order continues to rake. Montero is ok for mop up duty - someone has got to do it - though I agree he better get better in a hurry.

Hopefully Buehrle will be able to pitch inside tomorrow without fear of ejection. I'm going to puke if Ozzie or Riske get suspended.

Did I mention LaRussa is, always was and always will be a ****ing Wanker. Give him the best team in the league and he'll find a way not only to **** it up but also to be a first class ******* in the process.

Take a look at the replays. Tony was PISSED when Ponson when hunting. And you can clearly read his lips when he took Ponson out. Something to the affect of, "Don't pull that bull**** now." I don't think you can put this one on him.

Bull****. Ponson drilled two guys high. Riske hit one guy and hit him in the ass. If Riske gets suspended, Ponson should get twice as many days.

What will happen though, is Ponson will get nothing because he was not warned before he hit anybody and he was not thrown out of the game. MLB is a joke.

To tell you the truth I was listening on the radio so I'll take your word for it though this is Tony's MO. Farmer wasn't happy about the second HBP.

I'm with Dick Allen regarding the "warning" policy. There should be no warnings unless there is at least one HBP for each team and or there was a serious injury after a HBP.

The White Sox continue to get beaned and get almost the same discipline whether or not they even retaliate (i.e. Barrett incident).

Ah. So "they" is other managers...I wasn't sure if he was talking about the media or what. True, but just because of that, Ozzie is viewed as a psycho. While these other *******s hit people, have a history of doing it, and no one talks about them. The media will just talk about how crazy Ozzie is, and that he needs to calm down. It's bull****.

Ya know, this is the second time in a month that this happened. Something tells me Ozzie has good grounds for an appeal. The umps are singling out his team after his players get beaned, just cause Ozzie likes to speak his mind.

Then again, knowing the grade-A idiots in the league office, they may try to set an example of Ozzie.

Didn't see the game yet because of school, but saw the highlights, and heard on the radio about the beanball stuff. I give credit to LaRussa, because when I saw him go to the mound, I saw him tell "That's bull****" to Ponson, he didn't look happy at what happened.

MLB ridicuolus rules screw us again though (running out of fingers for the number of times this has happened to us in the last couple years). Riske will probably get suspended, which sucks. Why does everything has to be standardized as if a computer system was being set up to call the game? This rule is basically saying that the umpires are idiots and that they can't use their own personal judgment to realize what the hell is going on on that field.

We already knew the NL sucked, but this just continues to prove it. Was one game, but we'll see the real disparity during the next couple of games with the AL's best vs the NL's best.

I saw this. I pointed it out to my friend at the bar. It wasn't the slow leg kick he had last year but he looked more relaxed at the plate and seemed to be more patient. Like he knew what he was looking for and was waiting on it...instead of swinging at anything that came within 20 feet of him.

I am very angry about that, and I have been talking about it on here for a while. I think Coop needs to spend less time with Thornton and a lot more time with Vazquez. For all the potential he has, Vazquez has not improved one bit since he got here. He is throwing WAY too many pitches. There is no reason a starter should throw 100 pitches over 6 innings on a regular basis (he threw 97 today). This is the second time this year the Sox destroyed the opponent and Vazquez only went 6 because he threw too many pitches.

Now, before someone says "Javy is a strikeout pitcher, and strikeout pitchers throw a lot of pitches", let me remind you that Contreras is a K pitcher who regularly goes deep into games and doesn't throw all that many pitches. I don't know if Coop hasn't figured out how to change Vazquez yet, or if Javy just isn't listening. It is frustrating for me because I know that Vazquez has the potential to be one of the best in baseball.

Sorry for the rant, I just had to get that off my chest. I didn't want to be a dark cloud. It is good to have an offensive explosion now and then. Hopefully we saved more than a little for tomorrow. I would hate to see Riske and/or Ozzie get suspended for this bull****, but I think they will. The current system is a joke, and we will continue to get screwed as long as it continues. This is the second time this year we were challenged with the HBPs, and it certainly wont be the last. Ozzie getting a suspension will only encourage other managers to call for hits. We are only beginning to see this mess unfold.

You don't know how much time Coop is spending with anyone.

We were saying the same stuff about Contreras last year and look where he ended up by mid-August. This rant is premature.

What makes me angry is when a guy does not have a few good outings, people start freaking out. Just a week and a half ago, most of you were chalking up Vazquez as our #3 starter for the second half, with Garland last. And I can probably make a guarantee that most of you would switch the two back today. I'm not implying that's what you are doing, but it sort of seems like it.

I have noticed improvements...he didn't give up a big inning today. He can work out of jams with the best of them. If Javy is still throwing a lot of pitches early in September, then you can rant about it, but Coop's work doesn't just come in a few months, give it some time.

I think at one point or another, it's been said that every Sox pitcher was tipping pitches. Jose has made a ton of changes with his arm angles and his general philosophy to pitching. It clicked in his head that his fastball is very good and if he uses it to get ahead in the count, then his forkball is devastating. Before, he'd use his forkball to try to get ahead, which lead to tons of walks.

Another thing folks should keep in mind is that on most night, Javy probably goes out there for the 7th with those 97 pitches. But with such a blowout, there was no need to waste him and it was appropriate to get the bullpen some work.

IIRC, when I attended a game with him a few weeks back, he said he'd usually have maybe 1 or 2 beers at a ballgame. Since then, from my reading at WSI, he has gone on a bender of historic proportions!

As ilsox said, this was clearly not on LaRussa. He was extremely pissed. I think he might have broken the bullpen phone out of anger after Ponson started hitting guys.

Maybe he was upset his next reliever did not have enough time to warm up. :)

That number was a LOT lower (less than 1 per game I think so I was mistaken earlier) just a few weeks ago. Also, I am not sure it includes tailgate beers, which I hear flow in great numbers.

Meh. After all the speculation that went on at Puffer's about what the postgame thread should be called, all we could come up is the cliched SSBD?

I like Chisoxmike's "Mulder, You Aren't in Oakland Anymore", Dumpjerry's "Bears Beat the Cardinals By 2 TDs" or Chisoxfanatic's "6/20 20-6" ideas much more.

Anyway, I'm up to 6-0 in person. It appears that my good luck streak is growing.

:gulp:

p.s. funniest part of the night was Chips getting shot down by the owner of Puffer's in sponsoring the WSI drinking team. The guy basically said, "So I haven't seen you around here before. It seems that you're just trying to find a way to get free drinks." *****.

I was at the game and did not hear the broadcasts:
How did Rooney call the big innings we had?
How did Hawk react to Ponson's HBP's and the subsequent warning?Skimming through the gameday thread, I did not see any references to these (apologies if I missed them).
Hawk was pretty mellow tonight.

DJ seemed the more surly of the two tonight. He kept going on and on about BA missing the cut-off man in the 1st inning until the the offensive explosion in the 3rd.

What makes me angry is when a guy does not have a few good outings, people start freaking out. Just a week and a half ago, most of you were chalking up Vazquez as our #3 starter for the second half, with Garland last. And I can probably make a guarantee that most of you would switch the two back today. I'm not implying that's what you are doing, but it sort of seems like it.
I agree my rant is probably premature, but this is something I have been following closely. I have not "freaked out" because Vazquez had one of two bad outings. It concerns me that, even when he is on, Javy is throwing way too many pitches.
I forgot for a moment that is took Coop a whole year to fix Jose (Sox got him in July 04). It may very well take as long with Vazquez. It is a little frustrating that Thornton has progressed leaps and bounds since we got him (not done yet, though), while Vazquez hasn't adapted yet. Even is he is inconsistant, Javier is, at very worst, a mid-level starter. He will dominate some nights (even if only for 6 innings), and he will make you shake your head other nights. I can live with that out of our 5th starter. However, I am confident that he will eventually be a top of the rotation starter.

Great game tonight.

Before the game found the cart where they have corned beef sandwiches and had my first one of the year. (I ended up not having kosher dogs because I broke down and had chili dogs at lunch.)

Then I got to my seats and not long after words met Hendu and Mrs. Hendu who had the courage to say hi. Had a nice little conversation.

I sat behind some ladies in Cards attire. Poor things...they left after the 7th. Can't say I blame them.

Tonight was the first 20-run game at home for the Sox since they did it to the Senators in 1956. It featured the most runs I've ever seen in a game I attended (20), most runs scored in an inning in a game I attended (11), and most batters in an inning in a game I attended (16).

I may frame the scorecard pages....

Cheeses and I spent the last third of the game coming up with titles for the post-game thread, who the PTC would be (I voted Riske for best hit) and other sarcastic comments about what the Card fans were feeling ("I spent a ton of cash to get up here, hotel room and ticket for THIS???").

Bottom line: we need to get Cheeses to all remaining games this season, road and home!

Woot! Bears beat the Rams 20-6!!! Benson had 2 TDs and Gage got another, but they blocked the XP. The Rams got a TD, but Urlacher blocked the XP. I've never seen 2 blocked XPs in a game.

What game were you watching? The Cardinals (and there still IS a football team named the Cardinals) never got a SNIFF of the end zone that game!! Two lousy field goals is all they got!! Air tight defense at it's finest!!

With Gameday Audio, I FFed to that inning, just like as he'd call any other opponent, but I guess he knew a lot of background info on the Sox. Was very weird though

Also, good pregame interview with Mike Shannon and Buehrle. A lot of talking up about Ozzie, how he's like a friend, but you know that if you don't do what he says or aren't his type of player you'll be gone (specifically named Maggs and CLee, and said how different it was from Manuel). Also said he is seeing it as another start tomorrow since it's not in St. Louis but he'll see tomorrow when the game starts. His family has a suite and brother will be behind home plate. Jokingly said he'd have to deal with the Chicago media if he lost, saying he did it on purpose to the Cardinals. Said he loves the Cardinals, but still would really want to get the win

What a game to go to last night. Can Mrs. Wsoxmick pick 'em or what? The tickets were my Father's Day Present.

Unbelievable offensive explosion! In a very Ed Farmer like moment last night, during the big 11 run 3rd inning I called A.J.'s 3 run shot.

I had a group of Cardinal fans sitting in front of us last night and as A.J. strolled to the dish I yelled out , "C'mon Anthony John....send Mulder to the showers!" After he hit it the young Cardinals dude in front of me turned and nodded in agreement and as LaRussa came out to pull his pitcher, even he waved bye-bye to him.

Last night being the Pepsi Sox Pride Tuesday thing, the gal that was dressed up in gold as the World Series trophy won. My wife walked past her on her way in to the ballpark last night, saw the get up and told her...."and my husband thinks I"M OBSESSED!!"

When they showed her on the scoreboard throughout the game my wife turned to me and said...."she must be the trophy wife!" :D:

Anyway I digress. Good night at the ballpark. Mrs. Wsox ran her record to a perfect 9-0! I'm 9-1, the only loss being the ring ceremony game. But after that game I went to Grandstand and bought the old Southside Hitmen hat, which I've worn to every game since. I'm happy to report that the Hitmen hat is 9-0 on the season too!

P.S. Comcast Sports is replaying the game at 2:30 p.m. today CST. This game would be a fun one to tape and watch during the offseason when we're hungering for a little baseball.

Hawk and DJ said something about how somebody was going to have to soak up some innings for the Cards and it looked like it was going to be Ponson. Ponson must have gotten the same idea and decided to get tossed. I regained a little respect for Larussa when I saw his reaction, but I think it was because he knew it was Ponson's way of flipping him off.

How many times have we seen a blowout one day and a shutout the next? I've always thought that was because guys are looking at their own stats and feeling satisfied. What happens tonight will tell me a lot about this team. I will be very surprised if they take the night off.

Bull****. Ponson drilled two guys high. Riske hit one guy and hit him in the ass. If Riske gets suspended, Ponson should get twice as many days.

What will happen though, is Ponson will get nothing because he was not warned before he hit anybody and he was not thrown out of the game. MLB is a joke.

I'm really sick of this. Some team hits us, then they hit us again. Then everyone gets warned. We respond like it's been done for 120 years, then we get a suspension. It seems like this has been going on for years. Teams can throw at us all day but we can't do anything about it.

That's was pisses me off too! If we hit someone or Ozzie says or does something we're always the bad guys! But I think the Sox have show, they won't take no **** from anyone. This team is constantly under the microscope. That's OK-we'll shut them up when the Sox win the WS again!
