Tonight’s Lineup

Pods 7, Missile 6, JD 9, PK dh, Nix 4, Beckham 5, Castro 2, BA 8, Fields 3.  Contreras pitching.

Congrats

I congratulated both Mark Buehrle (All-Star) and Paul Konerko (three homers) this afternoon. Wish Paulie would have gotten that shot at No. 4 last night!

Rain 

I always get shaky when I write it, but … Rogers says we should be fine weatherwise tonight.

Pena

Arrived and is wearing uniform No. 57 for your White Sox.

Double Duty Classic

And stop by the ballpark at 1 pm on Friday to watch some of the top inner-city talent in the country take part in the Double Duty Classic as players wear throwback uniforms from the Negro Leagues.  It’s a great option for young kids and a great way to sit close to a ballgame on a beautiful day (we hope) at USCF.

In The House

Roland Hemond is in the house today to join Jermaine Dye in presenting scholarships to the University of Phoenix.  Roland has long seen the University of Phoenix as a way for professional baseball players to finish their degrees during the playing careers so that they have something to fall back on post career.

Please, Scott, Don’t ever use the “R” word (rain), even in jest. We all know it never rains in Southern California, (mainly because it ALWAYS rains in Chicago), especially those of us from out of town/state. There has been enough BAD weather already this year as last, so no more rain, please….

With that said, I’ll be sitting on my hands waiting for us to start this game on time and WIN another one from the Tribe. My thinking is that We win tonight and we’ll move to within one of Detroit who is facing Greinke in Tiger-land (that’s in Michigan and not Baton Rouge for all you Jared Mitchell fans out there)…. Ok, I’m done for now…45 minutes to go…. No rain, No rain, No rain, Go Sox’09, No rain, Go Sox’09, No rain, & etc….. j.k.

Sorry for the double post, but I really don’t want rain tonight….

jk, it stopped raining at my house a few minutes ago. I’m about 20 miles west from the city. I think we may be good to go!!!

I do, but here, in Texass!!!

So, I’ve watched the litle video replay of Paulie’s grand slam last night and Hawk’s ‘hell yea’ and it busts me up how excited he gets!! :) We want more, to bump the score, right out the door, etc…. so my poetry sucks.. at least there’s no pukeage tonight…. OH, and the CUbs lost, again! :)

Just keep the rain out of the way long enough to make it an official White Sox winner. Let’s win the series tonight guys. Go White Sox!

Hey Josh, you get that mlbtv yet?????

Good news about the rain MariE. Thanks….. 1/2 hour to go, go, go White Sox……

Heh heh, not yet Kris. :)

Still drizzling here south of the city. Got some running around to do but will be listening on radio. Amy is going to bring us home a win tonight. I pick Scotty P as the pick to click!! ;)

Do it Josh, you’ll be glad you did….j.k.

Ok ok, ya’ll pressured me into it. :) Go White Sox!

That’s right!…. Plus Kris and I get a 10%rebate on our subscriptions…… j.k……. Uh, That one is for just kidding……..

My post came after Kris’, but listed before…… Oh well, Go Sox’09…..j.k. (not just kidding)…

Peer pressure!! We just want you to enjoy the visual!

That one too!, Maybe because Arizona is before Texas???? Alphabetically anyway…..

Switching over to video from audio mode…..tata!..

Yeah, I can already tell I’m going to like it. :)

I don’t know how the heck these posts are picked up – - or why they dbl and triple post – -

Enjoy Josh!!! Word to warning though, we are always a tad bit behind the actual game so.. avoid mlb.com and the scoreboard on the website as they pop up the score before we know about it… sometimes.

Also the regular feed is ahead of the premium package. About a minute as far as I can tell, so just do what Kris says….. Go Sox’09

Babysitting tonight, so I won’t be able to watch the game, maybe check-in every once in a while on the team site… Oh well, hope the Sox do a fabulous job anyway.

Alright, let’s go get em Jose. Go White Sox!

Good job pitching out of trouble, Jose. Go White Sox!

Good job Jose, getting out of that mini jam….

Hey, what do you know….. It’s raining in Tucson!!!!! Looks about like what you’re getting in ChiTown….

Come on Scotty boy!!!

Send it our way jk!! Yesterday’s rain wasn’t nearly enough!

Atta boy, JD!

Josh, how are you getting feed before me!!!

Now, way to go JD!! :)

Weirdness now – - my cell says it’s 7:31, the computer says the same, but my post a second ago, said 7:35.. anybody wanna take a gander at that one?

Maybe the East Coast gets first dibs, Kris. :)

The East Coast gets everything! :)

Correction….. It’s coming down in buckets now, but that won’t stop our Boys…. Go Sox…j.k.

3 up, 3 down, 3 K’s. That’s the way I like it, Jose!

Very generous strike zone for Jose so far in this one….. Time for more runs Boys…… Make this a Laffer….. Yuk,Yuk…. j.k.

Looks like Jose has settled a bit– good good good!!!

Remember, JK is here every night for your comedic pleasure. Be sure to tip your bartenders and waitresses.

Another 3 up, 3 down inning. Let’s get some runs. Go White Sox!

Yeah, another good inning. Start us off right Josh. Let’s get another run or two…. Go Team, Go….

So it’s me and the boys tonight – - that’s alright, we’re representing 3 different time zones too… so cool, I love the internet! :)

Come on boys, bring on the heat!

Let’s pick em up, JD.

Now, make it really hurt, Gordon….

I love it when Dye does what I tell him to do. And now Paulie has a RBI! Keep it up guys. Go White Sox!

Damn straight!! That’s what i’m talkin about!

That would have been sweet, but three runs are more than I asked for. I need to learn to be more optimistic !!!!! Good job, everybody…. Now hold them Jose….. Go Sox’09…j.k.

Yay, Scotty scored off of JD’s hit! Make that a 2-0 game so far!!! (Did I get that right? I was going off of what was on the team site.)

Yay, Scotty and Alexxei scored two more runs! Make that a 3-0 game so far!!! (Did I get that right? I was going off of what was on the team site.)

About the double post. Silly computer.

Damn, Castro needs just 2 extra feet on his hits tonight.

I’m gonna quit reading your posts Josh!

Way to bring it boys – - come on Jose – - hold em!

That’s the way to do it! Nice DP to end the inning…. Kris, what’s the matter with Joshs’ posts?……. One more run this inning Gentlemen. Thank you for your consideration…. j.k.

everyone needs about a couple more feet tonight…so many so close…but at least we are winning! Jose’s got 6 strikeouts already. Keep chugging Josie!

Heh, I’ll try to calm down on my posting. Maybe a 5 minute rule for me?

How the heck are you getting 8:18 ? time is only 6:14….. j.k.

I meant 8:14…..

I have just concluded the bottom of the fourth and it is 8:16

Very nice. Three up, three down. Now let’s keep churning out those hits.

I guess we need to synchronize all our computers!!??? Keep pitching well Jose….. Go Sox’09….

I think if the blog posts took the timestamp of the server it’s on instead of all of our PC clocks, the out-of-order posts would take care of themselves. Let’s hold em guys. Go White Sox!

Josh, post all you want, I just won’t read until the end of every inning… you’re just that millisecond faster than me so when reading way to go’s… it really hasn’t happend here yet! :) By all means though, don’t stop on my account!

Let’s go boys, more heat!!

Real nice Jose…. Two more runs Boys and I won’t ask for anything else….. (XX fingers of course)….

Hamburger, hamburger, cheezburger!! :) Anybody else listening closely to Hawk and STeve??? :)

I hope rainbows ARE a good sign for the second half. Go White Sox!

I couldn’t see any damn rainbow!! :)

Truthfully, Kris, I couldn’t see it either. I’m just taking Hawk and Stone’s word for it.

Yes, I’m a conformist now. Thank you all. :)

But isn’t it nice to have the option to see it now???

Alright, Jose! I won’t beg anymore for runs. (that didn’t work) How about a trade? Two runs for us and I won’t sing! That should scare up a couple of runs….. Go Sox’09…j.k.

Oh please, runs and more runs, Mrs. J.K. shouldn’t have to suffer! :)

Drats! That didn’t work either. Mememememe…. O Sol le mi o….. Do you hear those dogs barking Kris? You’re only about 1000 miles away…… Keep doing your thing Jose… j.k.

My son said Hawk mentioned completing a survey online @ whitesox.com to win a signed Alexei Ramirez jersey but we can’t find the survey anywhere. Anyone know where to find it??? How about you Scott???

owwwwwwwwwww – that’s my two howling! :)

Crap, what’s that home run **** – - blah…. late innings, are suck zone!

Tough inning, Jose. Let’s hold em down, Thornton. Go White Sox!

Good job Jose….. You must hold these guys Matt. This is still a scary team, so pitch well…… Go Sox’09….j.k.

Alexei-Nix-Fields! Hell of a DP! Let’s get more runs guys. Go White Sox!

That’s what I’m talking about……..

Two pitches , two outs… Thank you Matt and infield…..

No more funning around. Get two runs!…..

Good read Pods. Atta boy JD!

Yay, way to go Scottie!! Keep that lead.

Scotty Pods stirs the pot once again. You know he is only doing it to make a certain girl who answers to the name “Ames” scream in left field.

And I have no doubt she did!!!

Sweet!

All right, half an inning left. We can do this! Now bring it to a close with some style!

Who was it that always called Pods “Twinkle Toes”? If he continues the way he has thus far it won’t matter what we call him….. He good!!! Go Sox..j.k.

He does run on his toes – - and his feet are huge!

Two to go…

Here is the part of the game I look forward to every evening. Three outs to go for a White Sox winner….. Make us proud Boys…..

There’s one!!

That’s two

Game ovah!

And all I have left to say is…. Come on C-Rich…. That’s three!!!! Good win…..

Thank you boys and girls!! See tomorrow afternoon for more of the same!!!

Ames brought us another winner!!!

A White Sox winner! Let’s bring out the brooms tomorrow. And thanks for the tip on MLB.TV. I don’t know what I’ll do without it from now on. Go White Sox!

Another “sweep” for the Southside fans in Chicago. Northsiders lose, the good guys in black win. Yep, not a bad day at all.

Nice job Ames! And kudos to the Sodfather for his good prediction on getting the game in.
