After the First Home Strech of the Year...

Sox Record: 3-3

Place in the A.L. Central and Games back: Not sure... the Tribe was 0-5 on Sunday morning that made me happy. However, they won yesterday which is a bummer.

Person with the Sox player I hate the most at the moment: No one at the moment. A two game winning steak will do that.

Member of the White Sox I love the most at the moment: I shouldn't say this out loud, but Brent Lillibridge. I was at the game on Saturday, and he walked to lead off the game. This was a shocking development because other than the 3-6 hitters, no one on the Sox are allowed to walk. But there was Lillibridge walking to lead off the game. Then he didn't suck at second base. Then he walked again. And stole a base. And I was like, woah, this guy seems like he's a decent ballplayer, you know one of those guys that you can hide in your line up at the 9 spot or something. Of course, it was at this point that I saw on SouthSideSox that Lillibridge stinks, doesn't hit, doesn't walk, and enjoys striking out . So even though I shouldn't like Brent Lillibridge and his two walk performance on Saturday will probably be his last two walk day with the Sox, I love him at the moment.

Rhetorical Question of the Day: Today is Cubs opening day. Not that I care, but it's always a silly day because half of Chicago takes the day off work and acts like it is New Years Eve/St. Patrick's Day. I call it MoronFest. Not that Cub fans are morons, there are a lot of very smart, good baseball fans that root for the Cubs. But sadly for them, the Trib turned Wrigley Field into a Frat Bar in the 80s and things have gone down hill for the good Cub fans ever since. Now if the team stinks, 40,000 tickets have been sold even if no one shows up in September. And if the team is good it's hard to get tickets and root for the team you like... thus the stadium is filled with annoying late 20s Big Ten graduates. But it's raining today, so Cubs Opening Day appears that it will be moved back a day.

The Sox are in Detroit (there may be more Tiger fans at Wrigley than Detroit tomorrow btw) playing this afternoon. I assume it's opening day for the Tigers, but I'm not sure and I don't feel like looking it up. All I know is that Floyd is on the mound for the Sox and even after 35 good Floyd starts, I don't trust him. And I'm a trustful person. However, the rain here in Chicago has me worried that the Sox won't play today, which sort of bums me out.
