Happy Easter

Sox Lineup

Getz 4, Fields 5, Quentin 7, Thome dh, Dye 9, PK 3, AJ 2, Ramirez 6, Wise 8.  Buehrle pitching.

Sun-Times

Anyone see in the Sun-Times today, that sports fans voted Mark Buehrle the most popular athlete in Chicago?

Lineup Changes

A few posters yesterday chuckled — dare I say mocked — Ozzie’s lineup.  One day does not a trend make, but you have to like eight runs, and more importantly, a shutout with 6.0 IP by Bartolo Colon.  While our offense has been frustrating to date, it is showing very positive signs, and our pitching has to leave everyone pretty pleased.

Nice recovery this afternoon from the middle of the first week.

Starting pitching has been very, very good…hitting is still inconsistent but has looked better.

Hard to complain about 3-3 the first week considering everything but you still wish the Sox had gotten one more against Kansas City. 4-2 starting a long road trip would have looked a lot better.

Detroit, I think has won four of five since starting 0-2.

Saw my first few batters of the 2009 season today. Not many, though, since the Masters (as I said in an earlier post, the best sporting event of the year with the Sunday round easily being the best single-day sporting event and one that cannot be missed) was a true classic.

From what I have read during the first week, I am very encouraged. Four games with outstanding pitching, one with decent pitching (Opening Day) and one with a poor bullpen effort.

A total of 19 runs in the last three games after a slow start. Some long balls from Thome, Q, Paulie and JD. A good start for Fields and all reports on Getz have been positive as well.

And I love the way Ozzie shook up the lineup Saturday to try to get things going.

One thing does disturb me, though. Some classless poster on this board is hoping for an injury to Joe Crede. I don’t care if it is Barry Bonds, I never would wish injuries on anyone. If you feel that way, find another board to post on. I’m sure that Scott R does not want that type of trash talk on this board.

Gardenhire shoulda called. i woulda did a better job than that over hyped bum liriano.

Today’s game was good. Enjoyed the whole game. Hopefully this good play continues in Detroit and I have a feeling it will. As long as we keep Cabrera and Inge in the ballpark we should be ok.

You know when you get to the park, they scan your ticket, you take the escelator to your level, and you walk through the doors to the concourse? When you take your first breath in, smell the polish with onions and beer and every other concession item (yay churros!)? Thats the exact moment you know you’re home. I am officially locked and loaded for the season. Not that you needed to know, but I wanted to inspire the memory…

So, whats the word on my boy Getz? I’m assuming perfectly ok, but I never like it when Hermie has to come onto the field…

Thanks for the link, Scam. That was a great article. Too bad it was only on ESPN Chicago.

Thanx Scam. Great article on ESPN Chicago. Kinda brought a tear to my eye. Let’s get the job done today in Hockeytown (LOL anybody see the Hawks games this weekend?) against the kittens. GO SOX!

Scam, you were right – that was a great article!!! Loved it – thanks for sharing.

Less than 5 hours till we tackle the kitties….let’s get ‘em today boys! I will be listening from work on my radio. Day games are great every now and then – they make a workday so much more fun!

Scam, great article! I’ve got it in my favorites now so I don’t lose it.

3-3 at the end of the first week ain’t too bad. Let’s keep up the momentum against the Tigers.

Adding my thanks as well for passing along the link to that terrific article, written by one who knows us all well.
