Game 45 Thoughts

-A series win against the A's who always play us tough, all right!

-Vazquez had his good fastball today, with a ton of movement, but he didn't have his best stuff today. He alternately struggled and dominated. He pitched well enough to keep us in the game, as we slowly built a lead. I must give him credit though for reigning in the game before it got out of control. It looked like the type of night where he would give up 7 runs.

-Nelson made his first appearance, and then disappeared, and then reappeared. He came on with the wrong undershirt and had to go change. He did okay. He walked Thomas and then forced a pop out to end the inning. Grade: inconclusive.

-Gotta love the back to back jacks, by the Cap'n and Mr. Anonymous, Jermaine Dye.

-Paulie's homer moved him past Carlton Fisk into 3 place on the all time White Sox home run list. He sits with 215, with only Harold Baines and Frank Thomas ahead of him.

-Tadahito was a late scratch with a bruised foot. No one on what his deal is yet.

-Everyone had a hit today except Pods, but that's okay, he had one official AB with 3 BB's, and 2 SB's bringing his total to an AL leading 18.

-Pods is starting to regain his old form.

-Thome hit homer number 448, putting him 1 behind Jeff Bagwell for 30th on the all time list.
