Advice

Saying don’t worry, “you throw harder than Buehrle,” White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen offered ceremonial first pitch advice to a nervous youngster before last night’s game.

The young player was a member of the Junior White Sox City Elite, a team of the top local inner city players. He was throwing out the first pitch as part of the White Sox celebration of Jackie Robinson Day.

Two for Wednesday! Thanks Scott for the insight on Beckham’s Out of the Park campaign and Ozzie’s advice to the youngster. “You throw harder than Buehrle”. That’s just priceless.

Speaking of, Mr. Perfect just struck out the side to start it off. Let’s get some runs. Go White Sox!

Uh, too late to ask for a ten run rule?

Going to be tailgating tonight (Thursday) in the immediate south parking lot. Will be in a black Avalanche with a grill attached on the back. If anyone is hungry stop by. Or thirsty. See ya Dave

12-0 … at least it’s early right optimists????
At least we upgraded pitching and defense (another error)!!!
At least we’re scoring runs w/o the home run (that’s right, shut-out w/ 4 hits).
I’m going to stop wondering why us Sox fans get all bent outta shape when we get no respect at the beginning of the season to go deep into the playoffs. Because we live in a Dream World thinking 2005 is going to happen again.
2006 should have been a re-peat but we choked.
2007 was terrible.
2008 we got lucky and then exposed by the team that whipped us last night.
2009 was more of not hitting or playing defense. Those of you who think we were close until the end were teased. They had several opportunities to take the division but p**sed it away.
I keep thinking … our GM prides himself on finding talent in unlikely players, WHAT ABOUT OUR COACHING????
Do our coaches not know how to make in game adjustments???
Can’t wait to see what the hitters do tonight against Shields. I smell another shutout.
Whatever, Go Hawks and Bears.
Baseball in this city is much too painful.

Painful? Probably, but it could be worse. You could be a Cubs fan. I know we may keep thinking that 2005 will happen again, but that’s how it is at the beginning of every year. And until the guys on the Northside bring home a World Series trophy, we have that right to keep bringing it up. White Sox fans never make “There’s always next year” a catch phrase because we all think we can get the job done now.

Last night’s game was rough to say the least, and it has been a very bad month overall. I’m not going to be one of those who thinks the season is over already. I’ll worry about that when we get closer to August, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I’ll respect that. What we all can agree on is that we all want the guys to turn things around and start winning. Hopefully it’ll happen sooner than later. As for right now, I’ll still watch the guys on mlb.tv when I can, and root for a White Sox winner every time they go out and play.

Here’s hoping we get our first series win tonight and start a new era for the 2010 season. Go White Sox!
