Can We Do That Again?
So let’s see … Mark Buehrle, Jon Garland and Bobby Jenks on the mound, you figure our chances are pretty good in our Cactus League opener. WRONG.
On a windy, cold day (for Tucson), the Rockies handed us a 12-4 defeat. We really aren’t very good in February. But the good news is that March comes tomorrow.
The better news is that although Bobby Jenks left his scheduled inning after facing two batters, his issue was tightness in his right shoulder (no pain) and the move was more precationary than anything else. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
Ozzie on the Game
"This will sound kind of funny, but I liked what I saw from Buehrle," Guillen said, of his left-hander. "Gar wasn’t attacking the strike zone.
"Overall, this was a bad game. It’s so cold and windy. You didn’t know where the ball was going. It was tough to evaluate."
The Sox play split-squad games against Arizona (here) and at Colorado.
