My brief thoughts (without depressing myself reading the thread).

1. Ozuna should play infield only. Adam Dunn or Dave Kingman can give him pointers out there.

2. I hope Dye returns shortly and Podsednik is healthy enough to run (and bunt his way on if need be).

3. The only thing I was worried about this Spring was the bullpen and I hope Kenny is able to swing a deal at some point. Hermanson looks done and the bullpen can use the help - they were the most overlooked part of our success last year.

Mama told me there would be days like these.

Honestly, I don't think the bullpen, although not perfect, had anything to do with these three L's...

I would more readily agree with that if I hadn't just heard Hafner's home run land about 5 minutes ago.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).

It's the beginning of the season, guys. Don't pull your hairs out just yet.

And, for the love of White Sox Baseball, WE WON THE WORLD SERIES!!! That alone is gonna make me happy for a LONG time! Years upon years of anguish were lifted from all of our shoulders on the evening of 10/26/05. Would you rather be in the shoes of a Cubs fan right now? I certainly know MY answer to that!
With all due respect, I think that's beside the point. We're all happy they won the World Series, but how much longer are we supposed to excuse a loss with that? Don't ge me wrong, I know it's early and this is too good a team to keep playing this way, but I don't see anything wrong with people being frustrated and expressing their concerns. When a team plays like **** its normal for the fans to be upset, regardless of how many games into the season it is.

How can you blame Ozuna? It was Ozzies call to put an infielder into outfield....what ever happened to Ozzie Ball? To Grinder baseball? Why didn't we have a pinch runner in for Thome to get some speed in the Ninth that helps to break the Pitchers concentration against the batters?

These are strange days my firends when the others teams are playing our game better than us!

You can say that after two games, and you can say that after three games, and you can even say that after four games. But you can't say it forever. You dig yourself a big hole in April and it's tough to climb your way back out. The Sox need to beat teams like the Royals in April, and they need to start tomorrow.

very embrassing loss. all i heard today from cub fans was, "how do u lose to the royals? how do u give up a 6 run lead to the royals? pathetic!"

all i had to do was ask them who won the world series last year to shut them up, but i still was embrassed.

Some silver linings:

- Maybe it's not so bad to get a little losing over with early to quit being "defending" champs and get back to being "attacking" champs.

- Mackowiak's catch -- after they had blown a 6-run lead and after he had messed up on the preceding play. (Grinder ball)

- Thome drawing a walk to lead off the ninth down by 4. (Ozzie ball)

They'll be fine.
