Much like how it only seems like one poster continues to beat the utterly nonsensical "The Sox never beat rookie pitchers!" (even though the Sox have beaten 4 pitchers they've never seen before already this season), it only appears to be a 1-2 who keep bringing up Walker every chance they get. I guess they think it's funny?

God, remember when people were wondering if he would develop into Konerko's eventual replacement at 1B? Yikes. Things have not worked out quite right.

Days like Wednesday do happen in baseball... sometimes they happen to teams better than us. Mickey Owen knew all about it.

Viciedo has 3 HRs, 3 RBIs and 4 runs. Not especially the run producer we were expecting so far...

Just one game. Win tonight, baby!
Sweeney leads the majors in doubles. Must be something in those Boston Baked Beans. I thought WS would have the advantage in the match-up of 5th starters but Humber had nothing on a pitcher's type of weather night.
Tonight they throw their #4 in Bard ( their version of Chris Sales) against Danks. White Sox need a big effort from Danks against a Red Sox lineup w 4th and 5th left handed hitters.

He was a Sox prospect. We should have known the eventual outcome.

Why have the Sox had a hard time winning at home lately? When Rios was asked if he was OK with getting pinch hit for a couple of days ago, he said something like, yes, he was OK with it because his power numbers are not good. Now Rios is hitting the ball really well by going to right and performing like we all hoped he would. But he is watching his power numbers and is not satisfied. Look for him to go back to pulling and jacking and striking out and popping up. I am guessing that the rest of the team has the same thought process, so when they get home to the launching pad, they have one thing on their minds, even though in Seattle they set aside the power numbers because of the park dimensions and did well.

We think they did well because they won. But they are looking at a different set of stats. Somebody needs to remind Rios and others that "Only one stat matters: W."

I would guess it has to do with their overall lack of "being good."

doubs, a lot of people would like to scoreboard watch and pretend the Sox are contenders this season. I say, let them have their fun.

I said, IMO, 2011 would be a success if it ended Ozzie's reign. 2012 will be a success if it ends Kenny's (bonus if it helps us realize we need a ton of actual prospects).

Dunn pinch hit for Rios the other day, so the rest of the team is going to start trying to do nothing but pull the ball? Teal? ?

The game was disappointing from the "get go" although I am sure the cold numbed many fans. I thought the response to Humber's arrival on the mound was lukewarm and most people didn't stand up to congratulate Paulie on #400 during his first plate appearance. I thought the crowd would be better being the Red Sox are in town and the mostly positive road trip. I saw many ushers showing people to their seats so you could tell these fans dont come to the park very often (and they were NOT wearing Red Sox attire). I dont think the $9 / $27 ticket promo had much of an impact on the crowd.

It's just coincidental, of course, although some fans will look for curses.

Last season went south without anybody pitching a perfect game or a no-hitter. I think the season went into the sewer after Juan Pierre dropped a fly ball.
Don't forget that the '22 Sox were only 2 games back until Robertson pitched his perfect game. It was all downhill after that.

Coincidence my ass!

Not exactly sure what you are talking about. I was in section 140 last night and Paulie got a standing ovation when he came to the plate. Humber got a nice round of applause coming in from the bullpen too. As far as the noise level, it was 39 degrees and many people around me were wearing gloves which muffles quite a bit of clapping. Overall, it was just a miserable night to be at the ballpark.
