Sox win. Hawks win. Viciedo still stinks.

Nice to get the win but the offense is still horse****. Home run or nothing.

13 runs in the past five games isn't going to win anything.

Hopefully in the climate controlled Rogers Centre they can do better.

0-4 RISP today, now 10-73 on the season...137, like in the limbo song, "how low can you go???"

I am out and about enjoying the glorious sunshine in Chicago today.

Glad to see the Sox come back to get the win. Great pitching performance by Jake and kudos to Paulie and Alejandro for providing the offense today. Sox win! Sox win!

Oh, and for the record, I still love you and believe in you, Dayan Viciedo! GO SOX!

And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

I believed Gillaspie could get off to a solid start if the Sox put him in the lineup every day and was a bit disappointed when the Sox looked at him as a good bat off the bench. Now theat he is taking advantage of his opportunity to play, whether Gillaspie will continue to hit so well when pitchers adjust to him will be a key to his season. I liked Gillaspie's potential when he was playing for Fresno.

Gillaspie is hitting the way many expected Keppinger to hit, strangely enough. And, really, I'm not so sure if the losing streak coinciding with Beckham's injury is totally coincidental. I liked the way Beckham was handling the bat early this season, and I think his defense is important to the Sox.

Not only was this the first time the Sox won since Beckham had to come out against the Nationals, but it was the first road win for the Sox this year. If the Sox are going to be a team that has trouble winning on the road while playing pretty well at home, maybe it's a good thing Major League Baseball conspired to screw the White Sox by giving them a home-heavy April schedule.

Strangely enough, the baseball guy on the Giants flagship radio station Saturday afternoon was saying that this was too early for the Cubs to be playing at home, and baseball needs to use more sense in its schedule. But I digress.

Today's win should have been Friday night's win when the Sox got a better starting pitching effort and had the go-ahead run at second in the ninth with no one out. Today the Indians went 27 outs without scoring after the leadoff homer, with Reed once again shutting it down in the ninth. I would have liked to have seen Reed pitching the ninth with a lead Friday night. It isn't just a matter of not hitting with runners in scoring position. It's a matter of situational hitting which hasn't been there.

I am looking for better baseball when the Sox get back home.

I'm surprised Myers challenged Konerko on a 3-1 pitch. Yeah, the tying run moves into scoring position if he walks him. But, there were two out and Viciedo -- an automatic out at this point -- was on deck.

Of course, I'm surprised it took that long for one of the Sox hitters to park one of Myers' meatballs. That guy sucks. He had no stuff all day. A good offense would have pounded the mediocre fastballs and sloppy curves he was featuring.

Nice outing for Peavy today. He found his command in the second inning and retained it the rest of the game.

JB:

The rest of baseball doesn't seem to be having any problems with him. You're right on the money. Seven home runs allowed in a little over 10 innings this year before today.

Naturally he shut out the Sox for the first five innings.

Words fail to describe how bad these hitters are right now.

You can only hope it's the crap weather or something because since August of last season they've gone right down the toilet regarding hitting with RISP.

Just putrid.

I have faith in your ability to find a way nonetheless.

Viciedo has admitted he plays better when it warms up. I suspect he'll have another monster June/July then cool for second half.

Alexei has followed a similar pattern in his time here as well.

Going a week between wins makes for no fun. Now it's another 4 game series at Toronto...shouldnt we have only a 3 game series there one of these years?
