Leaving Tampa

Thursday, May 18, 2006, 4:31 pm

Tonight’s Lineup

Ozuna, LF; Iguchi, 2B; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Dye, RF; Crede, 3B; Widger, C; Uribe, SS; BA, CF.  Vazquez pitching.

Contreras Side

Jose Contreras threw another bullpen today and reported no pain.  He is set to go Sunday once he comes off the disabled list.

Coaching News

Don Cooper, Harold Baines, Joey Cora, Art Kusyner and Greg Walker have all agreed to terms on multiyear contract extensions, while Tim Raines and the White Sox will decide on his position at the end of this season, his first as our bench coach.

Hey, We have a Date

Not sure if folks are still enthused about the idea of readers from this site coming to a ballgame together as a group.

Well, if you still think this might be fun, we have reserved space for up to 50 for the White Sox vs. Royals game on August 15 (tried to get a date when college students could attend). 

The deal is you get a ticket to the game (outfield), a pregame party in the patio (all you can eat and drink) and we will have a pregame event in the Conference & Learning Center with a front office rep or two.  Cost is $54 per person.

If interested, call Dustin at 312-674-5186.  First 50 responses, please.  If fewer than that, we still we have fun.

Can’t wait to watch a game on real turf. Going to all 3 this weekend, looking forward to it BIG TIME! It will be my first time at the cross-town, and the hype is not waisted on me. Two great matchups, with a Hill in the middle. Let’s get the wins, because it looks like Detroit isn’t planning on losing anytime soon. Are they for real?!?! Time will tell. Sunday and Contreras, will be good to have him back. Party sounds like fun, see you there!

another bump in the road tonight. we need to remember that teams like the twinkies, rays and the cubs are looking to their games with us as their games of the year. we need to execute and all will be well. i wish i could be at the park this week end to join you all, but rest assured, i will be watching from in front of my computer. go Sox. j.k.

Great idea on the tickets. I’m gonna call up tomorrow and order myself two.

TAMPA-*******-BAY?????
Are you kidding me? C’mon guys, let’s get going @ home and forget these last 7 games.

Can’t wait for the morning..2 tickets to the Aug 15 festivities, please!! =)

you had me at “tried to get a date when college students could attend” and “all you can drink” :) see you all there!

Check out Adam’s All-Chicago Team over in His Sox Pride Blog. http://soxpride.mlblogs.com/sox_pride/2006/05/2006_allchicago.html Interesting picks just before the Sox/Cubs series.

Getting ready to leave for the park now. I can’t wait for the games to begin. I’m in for both today’s game and tomorrow’s. Hopefully Mark can bring his A game today, we haven’t seen it in a while. Send that old man Maddux packing early in this ballgame. Great idea about the blog get-together game. Go Go White Sox!

Well, I just as happy as can be. Talked to Dustin this morning..reserved 2 seats for the Aug 15th game. Looking forward to seeing many of my fellow blogger fans in person!!
