Victory

Apparently, all it took for us to win a spring training game was for me to return to Chicago, as Alex Rios hit a two-run homer to help lead the White Sox to a 6-1 win over the Mariners yesterday in Glendale.  At least, that was all the friendly emails and text messages from “friends” in Glendale told me.

Starting Stuff

No pressure on Jake Peavy today as he makes his first Cactus League start vs. the Angels in Tempe.  The other four Sox starting pitchers — Gavin Floyd, Mark Buehrle, Edwin Jackson and John Danks — have combined to allow NO hits in 8.0 IP with four walks and four strikeouts in the first four games of this spring.

Today’s Lineup

Pierre 7, Ramirez6, Dunn dh, Quentin9, AJ2, Morel5, McPherson3, Lillibridge4, De Aza8.

Gamer

How tough is Darrin Jackson?  He broadcast Monday’s Cactus League opener against the Dodgers after being in the hospital the night before with a kidney stone.  DJ did the game and then passed the stone.  Gamer.

Today

Watch Jake Peavy’s first start of the spring on MLB Network at 2 pm (Chicago time).

Hi JK, Marie, and other fellow bloggers. Good outing by Peavy today. I know it’s still early in spring training, but none of our starters have given up a run in 10 innings pitched. This is a good start to build upon and I hope this is a good sign of things to come. Go White Sox!
