    Colabello's stance looks a lot quieter, I have high hopes he is going to have a good year.

    Plouffe benefiting from the wind there. Like I said earlier, picks up likes it has been here all day, it could be really interesting.

    Both. With a chance of scattered Deduno soon.

    If I had to choose between... Anteater or Armadillo.

    I'm going with the Anteater.

    I like Hawk as another market's TV analyst because he's such a clown show.

    If I was a White Sox fan I'd probably hate it.

    "What if he did that and the next pitch was a home run?"

    What if he did and the next pitch was a pop up to the catcher, don't just hand them runs.

    I dunno, I think that's a catch he should make. It wasn't a given the runner would go, and the odds were good to nail him if he did. And the way things have started, I want that out. Didn't go our way that time.

    2 or 3 well hit balls in 3 innings is a lot! I would disagree about unbelievable bad luck. I would say he was lucky to get 2 double play balls to apparently limit the damage.

    The wind really took it away, though, and made it not so routine. That said, I say you make the outs when you can.

    Wondered about his decision too. Tough call. This early in the game the tie breaker is probably to take the out and try to help your starter stay in the game.

    He probably remembered the runner but didn't realize how far he'd traveled and how hard it would be to throw out the runner. At least it was a close play.

    No question about it...always get the out, unless it's the winning run and you're certain you can't get him.

    Man, that was a heck of a catch by Florimon. Really closed on it well with the wind blowing.

    You're lucky. My back yard full of that is in the front.

    What if he did and...

    Jeez... there are a bunch of different scenerios to cover.

    I've decided not to try.

    Two scoreless, and a Deduno hat trick of an all-swinging strikeout, a four-pitch walk, and a hit batsman with runners on first and second...
