Must Win

The White Sox have dropped their first three contests of the spring by a combined 23-4 score, prompting many in the clubhouse to joke that today’s game against the Dbacks is "Must Win" with Mark Buehrle on the mound.

With Javier Vazquez’ 3.0 scoreless IP yesterday, Sox starting pitchers have allowed only five runs in 12.0 IP (3.75 ERA).

Rob Mackowiak is 3-5 with a double in two games.

Vazquez and Freddy Garcia both departed camp to join their national teams for the World Baseball Classic.

Today’s lineup:

Pods, LF; Uribe, SS; Gload, 1B; Dye, RF; Widger, C; Owens, CF; Fields, 3B; Lopez, 2B; Buehrle, LHP.

Well hey, its a “must win” as our guys are claiming, no one better to have on the mound then Buerhle! ha Can’t wait for tomorrow- the Sox are on WGN!

The only thing that Spring Training is any good for in this era is to get the players thinking back to game situations following a long layoff–in the case of the Sox,not such a long layoff,but one nonetheless…I would not be too concerned over what they do in the first week to 10 days. However,if this pattern continues after that,then concern will rear its ugly head over the horizon….
Now,kr-trepac,as to your previous comments on “lying”about the streaming audio feed on the Score’s website….Unfortunately,my friend,I believe that that is still controlled by Bud Selig and the usual gang of idiots at MLB….you can pick it up,maybe,on the Sox website,or you can find out where you can listen in on the MLB.com page….another case of the ruling factors taking something away from the yearning masses….oh,well,something never change,do they?
