    Last night's game was BORING led by an ineffective pitcher.------BUT, Eaton is sure showing that he can go get 'em!!
    We'll see if the team has changed as much as some of us think it has by bouncing back tonight.

    Didn't really understand Paulino throwing nothing but fastballs until the fourth inning. His off speed stuff looked effective when he started using it in the fourth inning. When the opposing pitcher is consistently crushing the ball when he is batting, it's going to be a long night. He looked like a better hitter than anyone on the Sox.

    Abreu beginning to look mortal.

    I didn't see much of the game last night; but in the Kansas City series, they were getting Abreu out with breaking pitches down and away, well out of the strike zone.  He went 1 for 11 versus the Royals.  Like any rookie, the opposing pitchers are starting to discover his weaknesses, and he'll have to adjust.

    Like most White Sox rookies, he probably won't.

    Last night's showing was a reminder of the kind of White Sox game we've grown to hate. In the most hitter friendly park in all of baseball, White Sox get absolutely shut down by an unknown STIFF while Hawk and Stone Pony praise the guy like he's the second coming of Steve Carlton. Fucker never even broke a sweat. In the meantime, Sox pitcher slogs up 90 pitches by the 4th inning. Also, I'm beginning to wonder if A. Garcia is quickly becoming "Available" Garcia. I wasn't sold on this guy last year and, while half the board was jerking off over him, I was wondering why Detroit was so eager to unload him if he was all that great.

    The game wasn't as close as the score, not that the score was close.  The Rockies could have easily scored twice as many runs.  Left a lot of opportunities on the bases.

    The one given on this board is you can attend 1,000,000 Sox games and not know what the Hell you are watching because FANBOYISM is soooooo damned important.


    You see what YOU want to see.


    How has THAT worked out for you?

    Probably takes you 45 minutes from your door to be inside Miller Park, but you buy boatloads of tickets to a team nobody cares about and spend 4 hours commuting for this excitement at The Cell!  You live in WISCONSIN.  GO SOX GO!!!

    Always a downer . We certainly did make their pitcher break a sweat. They tried to wear him down by making him run the bases on his hits
