So funny- on the CBS.com scoreboard, the ad I'm looking at for MLB gear features the Braves, the Giants, the Angels, - and the Tribe.

Stupid play by Brantley. He has to know his arm sucks.

Zone's a little small both ways. He's been pretty consistent so far.

Objective game-calling at its finest. And Steve Stone is a weenie. Brantley should go slap him in the balls at the end of the game. Stoney obviously thinks Brantley is not majors material.

Defense solid tonight. Time to scratch out 2 or 3 runs. I'll take a bloop and a blast.

Bat's a little shaky tonight but he's made good pitches when he has to. And he got some defensive help from Buck and Marson. Somehow he got through five only allowing one run.

Peavy has been absolutely dominant. We have to find a way to squeeze a run across against him and then get to their bullpen. He's pitching like he did when he was something like 19-6 with the Padres. We're not even making him sweat. This does not look good.

Too many guys are trying to pull the ball cause they're seeing the fastball all the way. They've gotta let it get into the hitting zone and start trying to inside-out some of them.

I hope that we become a moderate "buyer" if we're still in good shape by the break. This team needs a bat between Hafner and Orlando. I'd love to have a guy like Michael Young or a player who can platoon at 3rd and of, because I do not see Hannahan being able to man that bag for 162 games with just a night or two off. This "B" lineup we have tonight reminds me of having Dellucci, Jason Michaels, and Mike Rouse in at the same time, with Garko hitting cleanup.

Masterson is doing his part...flirting with a touch of disaster each inning. I wonder what's the count on K's to end innings? 4?

Agreed. Peavy looks like he did in his 19 win season with SD. It seems like the ChiSox have had the same pitching staff for the last 7 years, minus Vasquez. And if Chicago had Jermaine Dye in his prime on this team, as opposed to Dunn...they'd be sniffing us in the Central race right about now. As dangerous as I thought they were (and opening day had all but affirmed my position), I have seen much better White Sox teams in the last decade.

Missing 3 starters in the lineup tonight, tough to really evaluate and throw in the fact Peavy is terrific tonight and you'll have games like this. Shame we are spoiling a solid effort from Masterson though.

Damn, if that ball doesn't get caught! We've been feet and inches away from leading this game 2-1.

Hopefully, LaPorta can pinch hit in the top of 9th.

Tip my cap to Masterson. Another wasted performance it's looking like. Also, it's been great seeing Santana man up at first base.

Hannahan let Peavy dictate every pitch in that last AB. He swung at a ball that everyone in the park knew was going to be high and away.

I'm blaming it on the specter of Korean military service being lifted from his head for his slack-off. Other than getting Jerk Agent Borass nothing else has changed, has it? And Borass wouldn't want him playing poorly since it translates into fewer dollars no matter what language it's in.

Peavy just dealt on us... if your gonna lose that's a way to go.

Fucking expanding strike zone forcing hitters to swing at balls later in the game. Haven't seen the high strike called that much in the last 10 years combined. Causes Brantley to chase and then the wide outside corner, which he began calling in the 8th, put Asdrubal in a huge hole.

Oh well. Win tomorrow and come home with a 3-1 trip.

It is remarkable that a major American city like Chicago allows that idiot Harrelson to have a microphone to spew his verbal diarrhea year after year after year. :gah:

The last time I was force fed his homer horseshit, I was inspired to find websites that would acknowledge his amazingly bad "work." Not surprisingly, there are many that are out there, and most of them are hosted by Chicagoans.

Still, I will never forgive that city for giving that moron a soap box and a "superstation" to broadcast on.
