Well, tonight apparently didn’t go much better in Tampa. Shut-out in game #1.
I (fortunately or not) wasn’t home to watch the first 8 innings and, by the time I got home, my ComCast channel had switched over to the Bulls’ pre-game show. Obviously, they didn’t feel like there was much hope for the Sox staging a comeback tonight.
But, since I am officially on Day Two of my moratorium on over-reacting, I am just going to take it for what it is. Just another notch in the belt of the early part of the season. And, as a source of entertainment, tonight might be a good night to wander over to twitter and read about the #LegendOfSamFuld. Because, according to GameDay, he had a pretty darned good night. If only he would take his darned good nights away from my White Sox. :)
I do have one thing to say, though: Just because my brother and I like to mock each other whenever possible about our opposing teams, it doesn’t mean that the ChiSox had to lose tonight just because the Jays lost this morning. They really don’t have to strive to have the same record as the Jays (0.438 – ouch, that hurt to type). They could have left one of us (ie: me) with bragging rights.
I guess since the Sox passed me by tonight, I’m going to hang out on the sofa with ice on my wrist (lheaven knows what I did to it tonight) and watch the Angels/Rangers game. Check out what the Angels look like when they’re not bundled up from head to toe in polar fleece.

Price pitched a heckuva ballgame.

Check out what the Angels look like when they’re not bundled up from head to toe in polar fleece. Apparently like they can’t hit the ball with runners in scoring position if their lives depended on it. Not a good game tonight. I second your Ei Yie Yie. Here’s to two fully thawed out teams tomorrow, eh?
This is a very simple game…
The Rays got to Jackson early, which is a rarity, and put a crooked number up in the first inning. As a White Sox fan you know Edwin gets better as the game progresses, and he did find his groove, but the Rays had done their damage.
But then again, Price had a stellar Rays defense stopping sure hits and dribblers last night.
Thorton still doesn’t look settled, and that might be something to really worry about this early in the season.
At least Ozzie had a good seat and made a few jokes, both in English and Spanish…
Dang I need to learn Spanish.
