Seriously, Dan Wheeler?

Better yet, seriously Manny Acta? Good thing we battled back in the game.

Doesn't go to a lefty, even though Dunn's in the hole.

Fucking Acta's made some seriously questionable bullpen decisions thus far.

This offense is going to save me $200 on not purchasing MLB extra innings for the fourth year in a row.

I thought this was supposed to be "our" year??? :gah:

I've also decided that I hate the White Sox just as much this year as I did when foot-in-mouth Ozzie was the manager.

At least I have the perverted joy of listening to Red Sux fans implode all around me. They expected so much more this year with the new manager. :lmfao:

Look on the bright side.

With a big lead, maybe Sox get generous and we can break through that 4 runs a game ceiling!!!!

Bud Selig should issue a 3 or 4 run handicap for us each game.

I've been having huge problems with it, freezes and when it tries to play again it plays decent for second and then goes blurry to the point I can't make out anything on the screen, it just started doing this a couple days ago, and I am connected to my router by ethernet which my router is connected to my modem. I have the bandwidth to watch it, its a problem with the MLB.TV servers imo. Using my Apple TV 2

Also, anyone know if today is a makeup from last night?

So many chances today.

Choo is lost. Out in front of every breaking ball, late on every fastball. Swinging through or fouling back every mistake.

Tomorrow's game is supposed to be made up next month.

We use MLB Audio with gameday and have had a few issues. Used to be if you muted the ad screen the first inning you wouldn't hear any ads during the game. Now I have to pop the audio player out and close the Gameday window because Ace hardware has an ad that bleeds through no matter what you do short of muting the computer. Seems like they try some new something every year that screws up what worked.

EDIT: YESTERDAY'S game.

Every year I kid myself, every year I waste money on MLB.tv subscription.

It would be nice if at least one of our young 'starlets' could have a truly standout season. I don't think Choo will be a .300/30HR guy. I really worry for him. I think his approach at the plate is dominated by the fact he lost 6 weeks last year after getting hit by a pitch and has been hit twice this season already.
Brantley is worrying me, Kotchman looks like a waste of money, A-Cab looks like he wants to be shopping and dining at expensive restaurants and getting hookers with his newly acquired salary. The managing has been atrocious. Only Acta and Wedge would put their worst reliever (who shouldn't even be on the club) into a 1-run game scenario where we have a chance to win.
The only saving grace has been the pitching (for the most part)
