Nice Win

Sox Win

The White Sox scored seven times in the game’s first three innings — fueled by home runs off the bats of Gordon Beckham and Alex Rios — and held on for a 10-7 win over the Angels today in Tempe to improve to 4-3-2 on the spring season.  Jake Peavy earned the win for the Sox, while closer Bobby Jenks struggled in his outing.  Jared Mitchell, last year’s first round pick by the Sox, injured himself while making a great, over-the-fence catch.  He was carted off the field, and I will update you as to his status when we have news.


The other half of the White Sox, with manager Ozzie Guillen, take on the Chicago Cubs in Las Vegas.  Tune into WSCR 670 AM or CSN (a Cubs telecast) to hear/see the game (9:05 p,m. CT).


A great mix of musicians, baseball players, friends, family and fans took part in Woodjock 2010 last night at The Venue in Scottsdale.  Not only can Jake Peavy pitch.  The guy can sing and play the guitar, too.  Teammates Scott Linebrink and Gordon Beckham joined the lineup of talent.

“At least I didn’t forget any of the words,” Beckham said.



It’s a nice peaceful (read lazy) Sunday morning and with nothing to do for a bit I’ll add to the literary content of Scott’s blog. That’s a good one huh? Good news, Donna and family: the weather is finally nice! It should be in the mid to upper 70’s all week and no rain in sight, so enjoy your spring break and bring us home a couple wins.

I’ll be traveling soon, too. I’ll be flying to Savannah to help my daughter and her Kids drive back to Tucson for the summer school break. This will be her husbands third tour of duty in Iraq and she wanted the comfort of her family around this time. When I drive them back in late July I plan on hitting a couple of baseball parks coming home again. I might even make a Sox game at Tampa Bay.

The first order of business for me though will be to go to the two remaining Sox games in Tucson; that would be the 26th and 27th. Maybe I’ll see you then, Scott.

That’s all my rambling news for now. (Hooray! right?). so have a wonderful day, you all and go Sox’10….j.k.

For all Sox fans as well of those of a certain generation:
