Out of Sight

I was stuck at work, so I was unable to actually watch the Sox spoil the Twins home opener, but I was able to catch a few highlights.
  • El Duque is the new Shingo. He speaks little English, is fun to watch pitch, and gets by on slow pitches with lots of movement. He's gonna be a fan favorite. Let's just hope he can stay healthy. I was ready to send him to the showers after 6.
  • Hopefully Aaron Rowand's HR in the 6th off of Kyle Lohse is the end to his slow start.
  • Carl Everett has found his stroke again. -- Although, he should probably ride the pine on Sunday, when the Sox face the tough lefty, and 2004 Cy Young winner, Johan Santana
  • Konerko got his one hit a year off of Lohse. He made it count. Hopefully the rest of the team can pick him up the next time we face Lohse.
  • Go visit the Dodgers MLB board. Jose.Valentin. They love that guy. They're talking about making T-Shirts and wearing fake moustaches. I always liked Jose, so it's nice to see that he may have found a home in LA.

Rotoworld is reporting that Jon Garland may be a late scratch for tomorrow.
Jon Garland, who is scheduled to start Saturday, returned to the hotel during Friday's game due to the flu. He's questionable to face the Twins.
If Garland can't go, the White Sox will use Mark Buerhle, who would be working on normal rest.
This really wouldn't be a bad thing. Garland had to warm-up during Thursday's debacle. -- I should say he volunteered to warm-up. He went to Ozzie and said he would 'take one for the team.' -- So, an extra days rest, assuming he's healthy on Sunday, wouldn't be such a bad thing.

I didn't mention it in the last post, but Friday's game was the only one where I liked our pitching match-up. If Mark pitches Saturday in place of Garland, I like our chances. If Garland starts, I hope the offense shows up and we can eke out a win. On Sunday, you can't like anybody's chances when facing Sandy Koufax. Garland's flu could actually help the Sox take this series from the Twins.
