    5th starter article

    QUOTE(Hideaway Lights @ Mar 20, 2007 -> 02:57 PM) My major point was that right now, on March 20th, we not only have no idea who are fifth starter is going to be, but we have no major league depth at the starting pitcher position vs. the last two seasons, when we had 5 seasoned starters going into the year (El Duque was the fifth starter in 05, Vazquez in 06). In the beginning portion of the season it's not likely to make as much of a difference, but if Contreras goes down for three weeks or so, what the hell is our rotation going to look like? We were already counting on: a) Contreras not to age much and hopefully still have lightening in a bottle left B) Buehrle returning to form c) Garland not going through the same April-May as last year d) Vazquez being improved now on top of that, we're counting on all being healthy AND getting a serviceable .500 ish pitcher out of the fifth slot from this erratic (read: motley) crew? Again, I like Danks for 2008 but he needs a few more ticks in the oven, no? When I look at the list of what we're counting on from this unit this year, about 5 different alarms go off in my head. This could either go really well if we can stay healthy and get career avg numbers from all our starters, or it could derail and get really really ugly really really quick. counting on buerhle, garland and vazquez being healthy is not far fetched.

    5th starter article

    i'm sorry that floyd having a great day and danks having two poor innings but knowing what he did wrong doesn't shock me. I see nothing here that is discouraging.

    5th starter article

    danks honesty probably won't last that long so these quote are pretty awesome. He seems real cool. That third article makes me root for all of 'em though.

  10. QUOTE(zimne piwo @ Mar 19, 2007 -> 05:38 AM) Just loaded the DVD player and watched "Inning #6" again last night, let's just say that despite how great the first two ALDS games were, that was the defining moment where I first thought "hey, we're going to win this whole thing!!!" Let's not forget that El Duque didn't stop there and pitched two more fantastic innings after that!!! very true. He was so on during the playoffs it was incredible.

    Brian Anderson's Injury

    QUOTE(hitlesswonder @ Mar 19, 2007 -> 02:43 AM) I don't think that's true. When Crede first made the big leagues, he seemed to be pretty overwhelmed at the plate and not very aggressive to me (and that's not criticism -- I can't even imagine what it's like to try to hit at the big league level). I think that's probably how a lot of players are early in their careers. Lots of players have recovered from terrible starts in the bigs, and lots of players haven't. At this point, I think its too early to write Anderson off. Given the health problems of Pods and Erstad, I'd hope the Sox don't ship BA off just yet. the august before crede tore it up one september i think 03 maybe, crede was up in bases loaded situations seemingly everyday and kept popping it up to ss. I remember one game i attended he had two such situations and the same thing happened.
  12. QUOTE(WSoxMatt @ Mar 18, 2007 -> 04:12 PM) Well Let me submit this inning... 8th Inning vs Houston 2005 World Series Game 1 4-3 White Sox... Tavarez doubles off Contreras Cotts replaces Contreras Berkman singles off Cotts... Cotts then K's Ensberg on straight gas...1 out (OK now a DP gets us off the hook) Cotts then K's Lamb (13 straight Fastballs from Cotts to the 2 hitters)... Jenks replaces Cotts to face Bagwell Burke runs for Berkman Burke steals 2nd on 0-2 After several foul balls with the go-ahead run in scoring position ...Jenks K's Bagwell...Crowd goes wild!! Lead perserved, Sox add insurance in the 8th, the sweep started IMO a better IP and more important IP than El Duque, but it did take 2 P's i was amazed at how little coverage this got in the dvds. Seriously incredible inning in an overall great game. but the el duque one was absolutely insane. Funny story, when he struck out damon i thought he had walked him, and i was screaming and swearing when everyone else was cheering, it took me a second to adjust and then acted like my swearing was the good kind.

    yeah, pretty surf rock-ish. Better than his last but not as good as tyranny of distance.

    USA Today White Sox preview...

    read it, spot on. Realy no need for the "prediction" from the stat gurus. Though i think a tanked season is possible (of course) i still see us too talented not to at least be 500. not a bad article for a national publication though.

    wow, what they could do with jack now. I tend to think jack will be an "other" and then in the future will remember who he is and turn against them and go back to the camp.

    Brewers @ White Sox ST, 3/14/07

    that must hurt to taste some success then lose it. I'm sure most guys would still kill for that in the minors if they had no shot.
