This is all just alarmist nonsense. Yeah, there's a bit of a reason to be concerned, but it's 2 regular season games. I swear if it wasn't for the others at WSI who know baseball, I would be going insane right now.

Garland and Burls will be at the very least good. Vazquez can be great himself, but even if he goes back to his 6 and 7th inning meltdowns, we have a better bullpen to deal with it this year. Contreras and Danks are a bit unknown right now, but I think Contreras will be back and at least good, While if Danks doesn't work out, we have plenty of guys behind him who are itching for a shot in the rotation.

Contreras may very well be 70 years old, but he was the best pitcher in baseball the first half of last season and the second half of the season before. He pitched in Cuba. He's been around forever, and he's one tough son of a bitch. Even if his age is catching up to him, he's still got some time left as a decent starter. This is just him taking some time to get used to pitching again after his injury last year. Given everything he's gone through and how happy he seems to be in Chicago after bouncing around all over the place, I have no doubt he's not going to come back and rip it up.

I think that alot of people will breathe a sigh of relief when the Sox get their first win of the season.

No way! Any win will be a fluke! This could be the worst team in the history of baseball!

The season isn't even three days old. The Pirates are 3-0, the Royals beat the Red Sox, the defending WS champs have yet to pick up a win, etc. Gimmie a break...

A lot of people won't be happy if we are 13 games in front of MIN by the end of April.

It doesn't help when the manager puts his two cents in as well. Ozzie should keep his concerns (ie, comments) between the team and himself sometimes, esp. right now.

Thats kind of what I meant. Some can't rest easy until they get that first win, which I have a feeling will come today with my guy taking the mound. I think if they can get to this Sowers guy early, he is going to have a bit of trouble. He didn't do too bad last season in most of his starts.

At least a certain "sports writer" for the Sun Times hasn't lost his mind yet (actual name and link to article witheld to protect people's sanity).

When you say "sports writer", I assume you mean the media

Maybe.

Check out his recent "column" at your own risk.

Why I dont think he said anything bad. He said he doesnt like the teams attitude right now and it bothers him, like it should.

If only we hadn't traded away Freddy and Brandon we'd be 2 - 0 right now.
