There have been lots of special logo balls.

Tank Walk off today.

Beckham, Alexei and Flowers all hit .333 on the week.

Couldn't have asked for a better start from the question marks at the bottom of the order.

Will be a nice team bonding experience.

I think the Sox will miss Strasberg.

The Sox are now 1-1 in extra inning games this season. Let last year rest in peace, Lip.

Nice to see Ventura break out of the "Only in a save situation" way of thinking by using Reed in the top of the 10th when the Mariners had to be held.

The only bummer of the week is that the AL Central looks good, and it looks like the Astros will tank and inflate the AL west records.

And I am a wee bit concerned with Alejandro, a position we have less than zero depth.

I know by "position" you mean CF, but it got me thinking: have the Sox had a legitimate leadoff hitter since Scott Podsednik? Does Juan Pierre count?

Come on guys, it's only been 7 days into the season; it would be pretty stunning if the AL Central didn't prove to be the worst division in baseball (again). Doesn't take much imagination to see 4/5 of the teams here post losing records this year.

I don't think so though. Tigers are good, and KC, Cle are improved on paper. Both can hit. Heck, Minny couldn't be any worse than they were last year.

No, he doesn't. I thought Alejandro was good last year, though.

Well, we'll see, last year the division produced 3 of the 4 worst teams in the AL, 3 of the 4 teams to lose 90+ games and was won by a team that finished 7th overall in the league, behdind 2 non-playoff teams from other divisions.

Of all the things that could go wrong for these 2013 White Sox, I think being stuck in an ultracompetitive division is not one we need to worry about.

19 2/3 innings in 6 games, or about 3 innings and an out a game. None of the relievers threw more than 4 innings all week (both Lidstrom and Reed had 4 innings).

I might like that number to go under 3, as that means the starters are getting into the 7th, but I don't consider 3 1/3 innings a game to be really taxing the bullpen.

Now, if that number was 4 or higher, yeah, we'd have problems, especially if it was coming in the middle or near the end of a 20-game stretch, like we have starting Tuesday in Washington, with some night getaway games.

Especially so early in the season, nothing wrong with being a little conservative with your starter's arms in the cold.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves with Viciedo - he's had 3 hits - 2 of them homers with 0 walks and 7 strikeouts in 19 AB for a .148 average - and sets a perfect case why OPS (.632) is a poor stat...

Hopefully it's a usual case of cold weather at the start and the walkoff gets him going a bit.

At least we have a deep enough bullpen and some minor league help in the bullpen in case things get shaky.

But all in all our bullpen has looked SUPERB so far.

And that's because it's a good bullpen.

IT'S. ONE. WEEK.

Have some of you people ever experienced a full baseball season before?
