Tonight

Tonight’s Lineup

OC, SS; AJ, C; Q, LF; Dye, RF; Thome, DH; PK, 1B; Crede, 3B; Swish, CF; Ramirez, 2B.  Contreras pitching.

Correspondence

Sorry, I was a bad correspondent while the team was going 7-3 on that West Coast road trip.

With just 16 home games, the White Sox have played the fewest in MLB.

Pregame

Members of the team got together on the outfield grass before stretch to see a special video.  The piece, snagged by Toby Hall, showed outfielder Brian Anderson working out with his personal trainer during the offseason.  It was classic BA and classic “dig me.”  I can only imagine the abuse BA is going to take from his teammates, and in classic BA style, he is going to smile the entire time.

“Jeez, that’s a lot of work just to sit on the bench,” one sympathetic on-looker mentioned. 

“When I played, I just drank beer in the offseason,” one manager said.

Notes

Of interest (or not)

Cleveland leads the AL in ERA at 3.36, while the Sox rank third at 3.61 …

The Sox do play 31 of their next 44 games at home …

Starting tonight, the Sox play 13 straight games against teams with a .500 or better winning percentage …

Chicago is 10-10 vs. clubs with a winning record …

Dear Scott,

My wife and I traveled out to Seattle for the three game series with the Mariners. It is with a great deal of relief that we see Ozzie beginning to move players around in the order.

Our pitching is good enough to win the central but Guillen must be encouraged to move players up, down, in, or out of the line up. As a northern Michigan resident my formative years spent verbally beating down Cub fans has made for an easy time when confronted with Tiger zealots.

Do you travel with the team? I am a frequent attendee of Sox games played at Comerica Park. Hppy to have stumbled upon your site. It’s all good.

Go Sox!

WELCOME BACK Scott and White Sox!!! Game is rather a nail biter, so here’s hoping it’s a great homecoming for all!
