  1. Another good seasoning opportunity for Jenks. This is what he would face in the playoffs.

    Now that rosters have expanded, why are we using Blum. He has hit about .200 with the Sox. Why not Dye at first and Anderson or Borchard in the outfield if you want to rest Konerko? He may be a great guy, but offense early in the game and bring him in late for defense.
  3. correct, McCarthy starts.
  4. These two would pitch the next two games after Boston. I hope we leave them in Chicago and avoid wearing them down in useless travel.
  5. What is the contract status for Gload? arbitration or free agent? If I was Ozzie, I would have a conversation asap to clarify his role. He is not a primary option but could have a role to play especially if he gets his shoulder healthy.
  6. Is Hermanson really in? I expected Sanders or Jenks.
  7. Oz has had Contreras on the shortest leash of all five starters this season.
  8. This is way lower than the normal pitch count! I like it!

    Thanks Gene, I didn't take that into account, although there are a few I could think of doing without.

    Anderson is not playing much, and is 2 for 13 with 6 strikeouts. While I think he has long term potential what do we lose by sending him down and trying Owens? I would give him a try at the top until Pods is back. Timo hasn't done much in leadoff either.
  11. I know someone can do this: percentage of runs via homer early(prior to Frank) and avg runs per game percentage via homer with Frank and rpg percentage via homer post Frank's injury and rpg. Most think small ball has disapeared and I agree, but I would like to see the numbers and what Frank's presence had on scoring. This may also indicate if adding a bopper like Griffey would have a similar effect. Right now, I think we have a team slump, possibly by players trying to do more than their role. Are we pressing or just in a flat spell?
  12. QUOTE(Steff @ Aug 4, 2005 -> 09:08 PM) Good grief.. why does every game lately have to be a friggin nail bitter.. Because we don't have a dynamic offense.
  13. While the media is on to smart ball, I feel we have become much more dependant on the long ball. Any stat people able to give percantage of runs via long ball over the months?
  14. QUOTE(Balta1701 @ Aug 4, 2005 -> 01:57 AM) I let El Duque out there but with a very short leash... If he gives up a long ball, worst case is it becomes 5-3. If anyone gets on base, he should come out. We're not facing the "heart" of their order this inning. He might as well get the chance to win it, just in case someone does something next half inning. I can see that . Is anyone warm in the pen?
  15. Duque at 96 pitches but in a groove would you pull him now? I will go on record as yes, though I don't think Ozzie will.
  16. QUOTE(kyyle23 @ Aug 3, 2005 -> 07:34 PM) Do I hear a poorly executed echo? I think I do! Sorry, I wasn't up for wading through all 18 pages. Missed yours, again sorry.
  17. Since Griffey is in the NL, every NL team would have to pass on him. Then since we have the best AL record every AL team would have to pass on him in order for our claim to prevail. Slim just left town!
  18. QUOTE(Cerbaho-WG @ Aug 1, 2005 -> 08:49 PM) If you take out one start from Honel's July stats, he's 2-0 with a 2.88 ERA in 25 IP w/ 19 H allowed. You got me waiting for the interview.
  19. Judging by their success rates, I would say both decent speed and taking what they give you.
  20. This typifies the team first atmosphere which is way more important. It was bulls*** to toss him as no warning had been given. This will forever "Mark" him as a great teamate.
  21. I wish we had him just so we didn't have to pitch to him.
