Tonight’s Lineup

Pods7, Missile6, JD9, Thomedh, PK3, Fields5, BA8, Castro2, Nix4.  Richard pitching.

Changing Numbers

Castro will wear uniform No. 27


Can we pretend that Oakland’s pitchers the next two days are Hudson and Zito?


Ahhhhhhhhh good ol’ 27, the number of Geoff Blum, Jamie Burke, Carl “T-Rex” Everett, Josh Paul, Chris Snopeck, Greg Hibbard, Mark Salas and Ken Kravec. You have some large shoes to fill, Mr. Castro.

How about the Sox just mash these guys instead? Get some hits. Who cares who they are? How come no matter who is on the roster, the Sox cannot deal with new guys?

Hudson and Zito: very tongue in cheek Scott. Sadly, very true. There is hope though, The A’s haven’t seen C-Rich before either….. But isn’t that a GREAT name for a pitcher? Josh OUTMAN! I hope he lives up to his name starting next week….. Go Sox’09…j.k.

Did someone say former 1st round pick? Released??? How long before Kenny jumps all over this guy?

Cardinals Release Former First Round Pick
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [June 3 at 2:32pm CST]

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Tyler Herron is no longer a part of the Cardinals’ plans. They released the former first round pick today. Herron, 22, was the 46th selection in the 2005 draft, the same draft that produced Colby Rasmus for St. Louis. Herron pitched well as recently as 2007.

In 45.2 innings at Double A this year, Herron collected 37 strikeouts and allowed 70 baserunners for an ERA of 4.37. Not inspired numbers, but not bad for a 22-year-old. I’d expect someone to pick Herron up, especially given his history as a top prospect.

Hopefully our guys can get back to .500 tonight. Unfortunately I’ll miss the game since I’m going out with friends tonight. Can’t wait to see if Castro lives up to all the hype.

Here we go again Sox fans. First pitch is about to come our way, so Go C-Rich and Go Sox’09…..j.k.

hi jk,

Nice start for C-Rich to start us off. How about we get a couple early runs for the kids?

Good way to start Clayton. Now it’s time for our HITTERS to put this “curse” behind them….. Go Sox go……j.k.

Hi MariE…. You are due a win……. Come on Sox……

Well, thank you very much JD!

I think I heard JD say, Outman who?

Or, maybe JD said, I think I will hit one out-man.

That’s good. Next inning we go for Better….. Nice JD……..Go Sox’09…j.k.

OK, let’s get those two back and help out C-Rich.

Hmmmmm. Come on Boys get them back……

That’s better C-Rich….. Top of our order coming up…… Get one or two, O.K.?…. OK….

Hey, Beckett has a no-no into the 7th against the Tigers…

Not any more, Josh B. but still throwing a shutout. That’s good. Keep holding these guys C-Rich…..

What’s the matter with Clayton??????????

Clayton just didn’t have it tonight. We’re only down two though, so there’s time to come back and win this one…. Go Sox’09….j.k.

I’m only following online, but I’m sure the Hawk said this a couple of times during Clayton’s outing.

“Those dreaded leadoff walks will kill ya.”

Nice job by Gobble. Nows the time Boys. Take it easy and patiently and you will score some runs.

I don’t remember Hawk saying that tc. He probably did, but I don’t recall it…..


Can lightning strike twice in one series? We have the top of our order coming up. We’re into their pen. We need two to tie and three to go ahead. Detroit lost, Minn is losing big to cleveland. Let’s go White Sox,,Let’s go White Sox..Let’s go White Sox…….

No lightning, no thunder either. maybe we can get a walk-off in the ninth….. I don’t remember us doing that yet this year. How about today????

And no fireworks in the ninth either. Come on Mark, we need you……Go Sox’09….j.k.


The Sox didn’t fare so well against Hudson and Zito either. LOL.

This is becoming a mental issue with this one dimensional offense.

Anybody who doesn’t think this team needs major off season surgery to change the complexion of the offense isn’t watching the same team that I am.
