2011 White Sox Catch-All Thread

Recommended Posts

QUOTE (flavum @ Jun 1, 2011 -> 06:34 AM)
Who we face on the home stand:

 

Tigers- Oliver, Verlander, Penny

Mariners- Pineda, Hernandez, Vargas

A's- Cahill, Gonzalez, Anderson, Outman

 

Sign me up for 6-4 now, I'll take it.

 

5 lefties, plus Verlander, Pineda, Felix, and Cahill...good luck, Dunner.

We haven't caught much of a break with anyone's rotation this season. We've seen the best. But I like our chances given our own pitching. 8-2, losses to Verlander and Cahill.

Good Lord, that is the best pitching in the AL coming at us. Yikes. :gosox2:

They just missed Beckett and Buchholz but I agree with you

We're not hitting Verlander. That Seattle series will be rough, Pineda's just as good as Felix right now. The Sox are one of the only AL teams to not have much trouble against Cahill.

The Mariners released Manny Delcarmen today. He hasn't been good for a couple years now and was not good in AAA, but he was real good before. I gotta imagine he is better than Bruney or Marquez. I think we should make a play for him.

Didn't we almost trade Jermaine Dye for Delcarmen and Wily mo Pena?

Nice memory.

 

Remember, these situations are fluid, but while the White Sox remain hopeful of persuading the Sox to make a deal for outfielder Jermaine Dye, the price remains too high for Boston.

 

Chicago would take Wily Mo Pena but want either Manny Delcarmen or Justin Masterson. The Red Sox will not part with either for a rent-a-player like Dye, who is eligible for free agency after the season.

 

There is a decent chance that the Red Sox will not make a substantive deal before tomorrow's 4 p.m. deadline, but stay tuned.

I wish we could have got Masterson, would have saved the Sox some embarrassing games against him.

Masterson's a good pitcher who will keep getting better. You gotta wonder about his health though, his mechanics are sketchy on the elbow.

 

With the win today, the Sox are 18-12 against teams above .500. 9-19 against teams under. It makes no sense.

I can't believe anyone would group Masterson with Declarmen. Both were highly thought of back then, but I gotta assume Masterson was on a higher level. Injury concerns or not, masterson for Dye would have been awesome!

 

Does Declarmen still throw in the mid to high 90s? If so, he'd be worth the risk.

Lol, no way, that can't be real. It looks like he has been whipped and run over by a car.

An old saying when 2 fools meet one for offering and the other for not taking the offer.

Darin Erstad is the new head baseball coach at Nebraska... http://dlvr.it/TsqjW

That's awesome, I hope we draft some of his grinders once he has a few years to teach them how to give 110%.

That's impossible no one can give more than 100%. By definition that's the most anyone can give.

No, it's because guys like Erstad and Rowand gave it more than their all that guys like Rios can't help but to give it less. It's not his fault.

What if they are bad at baseball? You don't move up in the standings if you try harder than the other team

1. Win. Or die trying.

4. Knowing what's coming and hitting what's coming- not the same thing.

5. Every pitch is full count. Every inning, the ninth. Every game, game seven.

6. The best seat in the house is often determined by the best players in the house.

7. Grinder ball requires speed, defense, and discipline. And immigration.

10. Only one statistic matters: W

11. When jumping on the White Sox bandwagon, do not, I repeat DO NOT, keep your hands and arms inside the wagon at any time.

21. Thieves will be punished. Swiftly, harshly and repeatedly.

22. When attending a Chicago White Sox game, don't blink.

23. When all is said and done, make sure you "done" more than you said.

25. A good outfielder doesn't see the wall. He tastes it.

26. Your hitting should serve as a warning. To low flying aircraft.

27. Be a highlight reel.

28. Always give fans something they can take away from the game. Like the other team's pride.

30. Good enough, isn't.

33. The best way to get out of a hole is to dig deeper.

37. Never walk. Even when you walk.

38 You're either counted on or counted out.

39. Be a man. Play like a boy.

43. Step up to the plate even if you're not stepping up to the plate.

44. There is more to baseball than peanuts and cracker jacks.

45. The best defense is a good win.

46. Respect the past, people that are shoeless, and anyone named Joe.

47. Flying does not make you superman. Getting up and making the throw to first for the force out, now that makes you Superman.

54. If you can't take the heat get out of the batter's box.

55. It's called stepping up to the plate for a reason.

58. Don't throw back a home run ball.

61. There is no "I" in team. But there is one in quit.

65. Do not sit in the leftfield bleachers, home to Scott Podsednik.

66. There is nothing loveable about losing.

73. When bringing the family to a White Sox game know your limits.

74. Believe in magic. Not magic numbers.

78. Ixnay on talkin' about the ayoffsplay

88. Make history, history.

96. Expect the unexpected at U.S. Cellular field, home of the White Sox.

98. Batters should fear your fastball. Not because it can get them out. Because it can knock them out.

162. Crying in baseball is acceptable only if champagne burns your eyes.

174. Hoist the city up on your shoulders. They'll return the favor.

Remember in 2009 when White Sox couldn't get any pinch hits? They're 9 for 21 (.429). #1 in majors.
