Sox in Detroit
Nice to have Mark Buehrle scheduled to start when you have dropped two straight. As usual, Mark (now 10-1) gave us a great chance to win, Jermaine popped his 16th home run to put us up 2-1, and then Dustin survived a leadoff triple to close the ninth inning. Another tough one on the heart but another victory.
This is the time of year when White Sox general manager Ken Williams goes "stealth" as he works the phone talking with other general managers before the July 31 trade deadline. One early issue this season is that a number of teams still consider themselves in their races (division or wild card). This reduces the number of "sellers" and makes for a tougher market.
As you all know, Kenny is always looking for ways to improve the club and certainly is willing to be aggressive and make a move quickly.
I took yesterday off and did not have a chance to update the blog with our lineup last night.
