Just saw Uribe make the first out against the Orioles and noticed something interesting. As the sharply hit ground ball was coming towards Juan, he was in the process of blowing a bubble with his gum and continued to blow his bubble as he picked up the ball and threw a bullet to make the out. How the hell does he still make a nice play like that while blowing a bubble so leisurely? Strange but cool. What little things have you noticed about this team or its players so far this year?

I've noticed I have a huge man-crush on Joe Crede. :redface:

I saw him hit a homer (or maybe it was a double off the wall) while blowin a bubble earlier this season.

I've seen him and Ozuna blowing bubbles while running the bases. Very odd but cool as hell.

Pablo Ozuna. Most folks who aren't Sox fans would call him a "bench scrub" or something to that effect. Not only is he a critical part of the team and batting .432 right now, but this guy has some stones of steel and I love it. He'll go down 0-2 on two straight pitches and you see him just back up in the box with this relaxed, confident look about him. Nothing fazes him. He never looks cocky or over confident. He does his job knowing that just 2 years ago he was just some guy nobody knew about. Now he has a nice contract and has been exceeding all expectations, but even so he never lets the pressure get to him and continues to amaze.

Who's this Bubbles guy and why are Uribe and Ozuna blowing him? :redneck

I'll say this. When you are playing professional ball, you do all the baseball things many, many times. So many times they become absolutely automatic. Think of all the steps involved in starting your car. Now do it. Are there little things you do that you didn't list? Uribe has fielded far more balls than you've started your car.

I don't think Hawk will appreciate some competition.

I was going to say that! :D:

When they kept Ozuna on the roster at the end of spring training last year I was probably saying that Ozuna didn't deserve to make the team.

I'm such a baseball genius.

I've noticed that Ozuna loves to call himself safe when running thru 1st base.

I've noticed that Brandon McCarthy can't decide if he likes his pants to come all the way to his shoes, or if he wants to wear his socks high. Seems to alternate each day. And I miss his stripey shoes from last year (the stripes went all the way around the bottoms of the shoes).

Yeah, I love when Pablo blows his bubbles at the plate on delivery. Cool. I also love when Baaaad Bobby Jenks takes the mound - the hands cannot stay off the face, head, hat, jersey. Sometimes, he just keeps going at it in an unbreakable loop. Gotta love that guy, he's awesome!

I remember many yrs ago, I think it was Denis Savard of the Hawks, blowing a bubble while scoring a goal. Cool stuff!

Pods has his up one day and down the next also. I think it seems to depend which uniform he's wearing. I don't know.

I noticed that too. Jenks looks like a psycho up there! A TV commentator recently said that it's how Gaylord Perry used to act on the mound too.

has there ever been such a loose sox outfit? laughing seems to be a requirement in the dugout led by the class clown Burls.

Had to laugh at Burls waving the towel in front of Ross Gload to cool him off after yet another gload hit.

Had to laugh when I heard Bobby say in an interview yesterday that one time he was on the mound in the ninth and he looked into the dugout and burls was imitating all his hand movements to a tee. Bobby said he had to put the glove over his face to hide his laughter.

I love just about everything about this team.

And one thing I think about when others talk about how much more deserving Liariano was than AJ for the all star game- Liriano has not pitched enough innings to qualify for the era race yet just like Pablo has not had enough Ab's to qualify for the batting title. If liriano is worthy- how bout Pablo? He has the highest BA for a guy with 80+ abs since 1894!
