"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

2010 Chicago White Sox

In the American League last year, only the Mariners allowed fewer runs than the White Sox, but only the M’s and Royals scored fewer runs. General Manger Kenny Williams has made a lot of changes to the White Sox dating back to his acquisition of a then-injured Jake Peavy at last year’s trading deadline, but despite all of his tinkering, I’m expecting more of the same from the Sox this year.

In April, the White Sox’ offense–restocked with Mark Teahen, Juan Pierre, controversial late-season waiver claim Alex Rios, and the ghost of Andruw Jones, the last being far and away the most productive of that quartet–has obliged by scoring just four runs per game (better than only the M’s, Indians, and Orioles), while the bullpen, stocked with veteran arms, leads all major league pens with 11.45 strikeouts per nine innings and is second in the AL to the Tigers with a 2.79 ERA. Twenty-five-year old lefty Jon Danks has been among the league’s best starters in the early part of his fourth season (3-0, 1.55 ERA, 4.33 K/BB, league-leading 0.82 WHIP). The Sox just need the rest of the rotation to shape up to fulfill the team’s destiny as an unbalanced mediocrity.

Fortunately for the White Sox, the guys who need to shape up are Jake Peavy, Mark Buehlre, Gavin Floyd, and Freddy Garcia. Peavy and Buehlre are givens. Floyd has allowed a .406 average on balls in play after four starts, so positive correction is guaranteed. Garcia, well, he’s 35, has made just 23 starts over the past three seasons, and has gone 0-2 with a 5.82 ERA this season despite a .217 BABIP, so maybe he won’t be there, but he’s the fifth starter, so the Sox will take what they can get there.

Looking at this weekend’s series, on paper, Garcia versus Andy Pettitte tonight is a win, and Danks versus Javy Vazquez on Saturday afternoon is a loss, which boils it down to a Sunday rubber game between Buehrle and Phil Hughes. I’m looking forward to that one.

Cliff, have you given up on Javy already? Or just expect Danks to dominate this intrepid offense as he has the rest of the teams he has faced thus far this year?

2 Diane Firstman   ~  Apr 30, 2010 6:33 pm

Greetings from section 130 ... Don't think I'll be posting during the game.

3 Cliff Corcoran   ~  Apr 30, 2010 6:50 pm

[1] I have not given up on Javy, but I do think Danks will out-pitch him and the Sox bullpen is strong, so . . .

Evening, Team.

Good job, Andy.
All right, that's all you're getting from here on out, Chicago (at least off Andy).
Get to work, sticks, or should I say, Robbie!

You can do this.

16 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:45 pm

Hmmm ... that seemed like a moment to call the runner "out of the baseline".

17 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:46 pm

Obviously he should have been called out.

18 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:48 pm

Could Pettitte be missing Po behind the plate?

19 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:48 pm

Beautiful Saturday morning at home, double-header on the boob-tube..got my coffee and bagels ready..and it's Angels-Tigers (tolerable) followed by Pirates-Dodgers...the PIRATES??!! Anyone know if that "slingbox" system would work over here in Jay-pan? I know Iwamura Akinori is Japanese and all but really, do the tv execs here think any Japanese fan wants to watch the Pirates?!?

Ok, vent finished. Go Yanks!

20 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:52 pm

[18] That's kookie talk. We all know that it is impossible for any pitcher to work well with Posada.

21 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 7:55 pm

[20] Yeah I guess after 15 years, nothing good has come out of that battery.

22 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:13 pm

Maybe Andy has settled down.

24 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:26 pm

[23] Not much to say: hard to get excited following the somnambulant Yankees offense on Gameday.

I can report, however, that WordPress underlines somnambulant, Gameday and WordPress as misspelled words.

25 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:28 pm

[24] Tigers put a beating on Joel Pinero..exciting! No doubt Pirates game coming up will be good too...Andy P has settled down nicely though.

26 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:32 pm

Weren't pretty, but Andy did the job!

31 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:43 pm

On Gameday that pitched looked like a fat hanging curveball, and it shows that Jeter pulled it. What did it look like on TeeVee?

32 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:45 pm

31. Pulled beautifully, gone off the bat, over the BP into the stands.

33 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:45 pm

Did the Captain jack it? Was it a NYS cheapy?

34 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:45 pm

Just like that, you knew the ball was out when Jeter hit it.

35 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:45 pm

Good old Nick "Two True Outcomes" Johnson.

36 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:47 pm

[32][34] Thanks! Awesome.

Now, when will Teix and/or NJ wake up?

37 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:48 pm

[33] no - hard hit ball pulled to lf

[28] i wonder if wells was hurt all those years? for some reason i just didn't think he was totally toast yet, i actually kind of like that he has bounced back.

38 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:51 pm

[36] I do not like watching Nick Johnson play baseball...

Only as it relates to baseball, I wonder wt what the blowback will be with this new law in Arizona...a lot of people (Dems & Repubs both) coming out against it. With the huge Lati presence in the game am sure there must be concern in Selig HQ about public and player opinion...will they really end up pulling the ASG from Bank One Ballpark though?

39 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:52 pm

How about Andruw? Is he back?

40 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:53 pm

[37] The Jays' announcers were saying the other night that he was hurt, but I don't know if that is really the case or if this is a constructed narrative (and in any case, we'll see how long he keeps it up). He did have some great years, and he looked like he was going to be a superstar after his age 24 season.

41 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:54 pm

[39] If the Latino players make it known they will 'boycott' the game, I'll bet they change it's location. And I hope they do.

42 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 8:55 pm

[39] I don't believe it for a moment. But maybe he'll prove me wrong.

[38] I don't like watching him right now, that he's scuffling. But I do like his .400 OBP, and generally I have always liked watching him play---when he plays---since his Columbus days.

43 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:00 pm

God, I love Andy.
It's so nice to come back and see he's pitched four scoreless innings after that start to give us time to come back. This is why I love the guy, even when he's bad, he's (usually) good.

44 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:03 pm

Ace, the Not Eighth Inning Guy!

45 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:05 pm

[41] That would be THE statement so far on this issue. Vague threats to pull out of AZ by conventions or company meetings will not heighten awareness like MLB changing the All Star game. I hope they do it too.

46 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:09 pm

What's with the wave?

47 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:09 pm

who are these asshats doing the wave?

48 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:11 pm

[45] I'm not sure MLB pulling the ASG would do much about "heightening awareness"---people seem plenty aware of the issue. Rather, it's about exerting leverage on the people (and their elected officials). It would be interesting to see how the local population reacts. They certainly don't care about outsiders' opinions, nor, one could argue should they. But they may make an economic calculation: that sticking to their guns on the immigration issue will cost them in other ways (loss of business, the loss of future entertainment events).

49 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:11 pm

[46] I think it has something to do with New Yankee Stadium. Just not the same...

That was a *terrible* pitch.
I was muttering "waste a pitch, waste a pitch" and then the ball left his hand and I cringed.
Thank God it worked out all right.

54 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:13 pm

Jeez, the Mets are winning in Philly 8-1 in the seventh. Remarkable.

55 cult of basebaal   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:14 pm

From what I've seen and I'll try and find where I saw it, "insiders" seem to be saying that it's unlikely MLB will move the game at this point, given the time proximity.

56 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:15 pm

so according to cliff's write-up, the cws pen is pretty good - let's hope the yanks pen comes through and they can get to the ws pen here.

I've liked Granderson a lot more than I thought I would (he really is a likable player), but it's getting clearer and clearer that he should not bat v. LHP.

Phil Pepsi now in for the Tigers..facing my man Matsui!

62 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:19 pm

So why wouldn't everyone wear a better rather than a worse helmet?

63 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:20 pm

[59] Unfortunately, if Po is out for a while, or if he goes on the DL, or if the Po-must-DH crowd gets its way, we're gonna see a wholelotta Chad Moeller.

64 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:21 pm

[63] hopefully he gets better soon; you and i must stay strong on the last point (ie not moving po to dh) - cause i don't want to see any chad moeller

65 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:22 pm

[62] It looks goofy + perceived diminishing returns (i.e., players are not really worried about the remote chances of suffering a big injury that the helmet could specifically prevent). Hell, Winfield wore the old no ear flap helmet for years, right?

66 weeping for brunnhilde   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:22 pm

Fuckin' A, Brett!
Hot damn!

67 kenboyer made me cry   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:22 pm

[48] I was simplistic, and you were spot on. But, even with all that press and wide discussion, I would wager that over 40% of the U.S. population is either not aware of specifics of the AZ law, or have a clear opinion about it. Baseball reaches many more than the news. And that kind of economic pressure will change opinion in AZ, as the boycott around the MLK holiday did.

Me heart Jeter!

79 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:28 pm

[67] That's the comparison, but I do think there are many differences between the MLK episode years ago and the present legislation. With the MLK holiday, outside pressure only had to convince the local population to do what everyone else was doing in the US: take a federal holiday off.

In the current situation, outside pressure would have to convince the local population that a (perceived) problem felt acutely locally, and not appreciated by critics from outside of AZ, must be accepted by the people of AZ (who are currently, according to polls, wildly in favor of the legislation). If anything, one could argue that Arizonians have successfully raise awareness outside of AZ of the (perceived) severity of the problem and their discontent with federal solutions.

OK, back to baseball!

KC up on the Rays..whodathunkit?

84 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:32 pm

Of course, the problem with PH Po is that any chance of a retroactive DL is lost. Does this mean his prognosis is not as grim as some thought? Or has Girardi maybe panicked a bit, PHing for a guy who got on base twice already this game?

85 RIYank   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:32 pm

I don't think any of the curves to Posada were in the strike zone. Bad eye, Jorgie.

86 RIYank   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:33 pm

[84] Remember, the point at this stage of the game, in this situation, was not to get another baserunner but to cash in Jeter from third. So Posada was a better bet.

But in answer to your actual question: I have no idea.

87 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:34 pm

[84] let's really hope it is that his prognosis is looking good.
if it is panic while the yanks are up 2 runs in a game in april that is troubling.

88 monkeypants   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:36 pm

[86] Of course Po is the better batter than NJ, so he is the better bet to get the run in. But both don't make outs at the same rate and Po is not afraid of the K, so I'm not sure he increased the chances of scoring Jeter all that much.

A wilder move would have been to let NJ bat and hopefully walk, then PH Po for Teixera, who's scuffling every bit as mightily as NJ.

89 Mr. OK Jazz TOKYO   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:38 pm

[88] For a second I read that as "PR Po for Tex"..that would have been an "interesting" move..

90 ms october   ~  Apr 30, 2010 9:42 pm

[88] since thornton was still the pitcher - i would have given serious thought to bringing tims in. ozzie would definitely have gone ahead and brought santos in - but it would get thornton out, keep the option of retroactively putting po on the dl if needed, and you don't leave tex's glove by pinch hitting for him (which would never have happened anyway). tims has a decent chance of hitting a sac fly even against a rhp.

132 thelarmis   ~  Apr 30, 2010 10:36 pm

[131] maybe he's a pitched a bunch recently? or not feeling well, or something...

133 RIYank   ~  Apr 30, 2010 10:37 pm

136 RIYank   ~  Apr 30, 2010 10:40 pm

[132] I think he did pitch a lot against Toronto, but yesterday they had the day off.

137 OldYanksFan   ~  Apr 30, 2010 10:41 pm

I don't know if this is good new or bad, but the Midget leads the Sox in HR with 6, and has a .916 OPS.

138 RIYank   ~  Apr 30, 2010 10:42 pm

Would you walk Tejada in this situation?
