Dropped from the 40-man. I wonder what the story was behind that.
The 40-man roster is now at 38.
I don't think they'll call it for only being cold. It's going to have to be rainy or snowy as well.
The temps on Tuesday won't be much better, so if it's 35 degrees on Monday, so be it. Play ball.
Billy Pierce is throwing out the first pitch.
They should have flown home, brought some minor leaguers, and played a couple intrasquad games in the cold to get used to the conditions. Yeah, I know....money.
I'm ready for opening day. Enough of this crap.
Merkin always sounds like he's holding pot in his lungs.
Webcast. I think Rick Hahn is filling in for Melton.

They were talking about Getz.
Wow, these announcers pulling out all of the Sox stereotypes. Saying that Sox fans like gritty, grindy players that get their uniform dirty. "Bring their lunch pail".
Um, no. We like good major league players that win baseball games. Period.
QUOTE (elrockinMT @ Mar 30, 2009 -> 05:54 PM)Ugly game all the way around. I hope Bart and Jose can do better
They both were topping out at 93. Hopefully it's just a bad day, and they can get one good outing each before facing the Twins.
I should hope Ozzie would say that. They cut the pitching staff down to 12 this morning!
A week left of spring training, and Cox sent Thome in a 12-3 spring training game...that's piss poor.
Having Dewayne Wise lead off may be an ok move for a while, but it won't last. They'll either make a trade, or Getz will move his way into that spot.
QUOTE (Thunderbolt @ Mar 30, 2009 -> 01:48 PM)This is truly a glorious day. Jerry Owens is now just a memory. Go be grindy and fast for some other team.
He's not even grindy. He just sucks.
I can understand why MacDougal made the team. He was good this spring, and he's making a couple million, or whatever.
If Egbert pitches well at AAA, he may find his way into the rotation at some point this year. It's pretty likely that will happen with Colon and Contreras around.
The Sox made 50 errors last year between 3rd and SS.
33 at 3rd. 17 at SS.
I'll say they have about the same this year.
QUOTE (elrockinMT @ Mar 28, 2009 -> 12:25 PM)McDougal and Williams could be the surprise men in with Marquez and Richards out
If Contreras and Colon make it, they're going to need guys that can go 3-4 innings.
To me, Richard makes the pitching staff no matter what.
The other spots--I think Egbert or Broadway could beat out Marquez for a bullpen spot.
QUOTE (JPN366 @ Mar 27, 2009 -> 11:42 AM)He's been moved from Charlotte's roster to B'ham's roster. Wow, the loaded Barons just got more loaded.
Just curious...what's the source for this move? I saw on MILB that he's listed on the Birmingham roster, but how reliable is that?
On CJ Retherford, I haven't really followed him, but based on his 2008 I don't see how he could be asked to repeat Winston-Salem. If he's a good 3B, I hope he's moved up to Birmingham. He could be a nice trade piece.
I hope Owens goes 0-5, with 3 K's, 2 limp grounders to first, and a couple misplayed balls in the outfield. I want him GONE!
I had a feeling he wasn't going to Charlotte. That didn't make sense.

WHITE SOX defeat the Dodgers in 6 games
4.1 innings for Colon
The plan is Colon for 3, and Contreras for 4. That's the plan, at least.
