It’s game two with the Seattle Mariners and Jake has the keys to the mound office today.

Robin has really given the line up a good shake so lets see if this gets anything done.

For those of you who were at the White Sox Cubs series the night it rained and was called, the make up game has been rescheduled for JULY EIGHT. Game tickets and parking coupons will be honored. It’s a 7:10 start.

Grab a coffee and a snack, see you at the top of the first.

Day Off Stuff

399617_590459337639897_77003487_n   Afternoon Kids

I know I missed the summary for you for the series with the Tampa Bay Rays. I just wanted to share some thoughts on things I see and reading feedback from the fans.

Overall it was a good series for positive issues. Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn have begun to find some form. Its taken a bit but you can see some confidence returning as they come to the plate.

The loss of Gordon Beckham early in the season is a big loss. I think he was just getting to find his feet. From what I have read he is really anxious to get back but Robin refuses to rush him. Joining him on the 15 Day Disabled List is Gavin Floyd with a Flexor Muscle strain in his throwing elbow. Deunte Heath has been given the nod to replace him for now, with 54 being his jersey number.

April 20 saw Dayan Viciedo head to the DL list because of a strained left oblique and Blake Tekotte got the call from Charlotte and will wear number 18. Blake has since returned to Charlotte.

Jeff Keppinger has had back spasms and is playing game by game.

John Danks is continuing to recovering from shoulder surgery and will be doing slow pitching in minor leagues before being called up. An article by Fred Mitchell, chatting to Robin about the injuries, talked that he sees the glass as half full. Things could be worse but the guys being called up are making the most of the time with the Sox.

Tyler Greene is sitting on top the club batting with an average of .316 in 19 at bats, just one home run.

Addison Reed is just magic to watch work in the late innings and has an ERA of 1.64. If he gets rattled it takes a little for him to get settled back down. A couple of times I wish Robin would’ve gone out to just have a word and get Addison refocused.

Jake Peavy with 32 innings pitched is right now carrying an ERA of 3.38 but that is with 3 wins and one loss.

Yup, its rough right now with the injuries and confidence suffering right now. I can see that everyone is  frustrated and this is bothering them as much as it is us, THE FANS. It may get even harder before it gets better but are you the fans going to point out everything wrong, or just like a few I have met, just love the game and want to see the boys play no matter what.

I know this is different than what you’re use to and I missed getting the dugout notes written, thanks to life taking over. From Thursday to Saturday will be limited contact as I will be away for a personal event. I will though be checking in with you and keeping an eye on how the boys are doing.

There is a massive series coming 3 games with the Texas Rangers BUT, it’s the next series because now the Kansas City Royals are 3 and 1/2 games ahead of us and we need to get on top of this before it gets too wide a margin. I know that we just need to NOT worry about how many games out and just win and things will fall into place.

Don’t forget that the All Star Game Ballot is still open and you still have time to go and vote.

Ok, Kids…I am off to get some sleep. Pack that bag and see you in Texas at Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas

Game TWO with the Rays

379843_589305471088617_821322595_n     Morning Kids,

What a great win yesterday and fingers crossed we can do just as well today. Jake Peavy is on the mound today, Jordan Danks in Centerfield replacing Dewayne Wise who was a late withdrawal because of a stiff neck.

Need to send a HUGE thumbs up to http://www.vipboxsports.me for their great stream. It’s a great picture hardly any buffering.

Grab a cuppa and a snack and will see you in the bottom of the first.

What bloody nerve Addison holding on and was not going to be beaten. That is a THREE game winning streak. I won’t be with you during the game tomorrow but I will post a write-up later in the day for me. Have a super rest of your evening or day here in Australia and I will see you for game three with Gavin Floyd getting the call to the mound

Blue Jays Road Trip Notes

558042_4878982128432_2145280450_n**Game one with the Blue  Jays

Chicago Crew of Ken Harrelson and Steve Stone behind the mike today.

Tyler Greene make his first appearance in a White Sox grey since being picked up from Triple – A Charlotte, prior to this past Sunday’s series with the Indians due to not only Gordon Beckham but Angel Sanchez on the 15-day disabled list with back issues.

Uniform of the day — Grey pants and jerseys with black strip around the arm and down the leg.

As of game time Jeff Keppinger was batting .220, Tyler Flowers batting .182

Sitting in fourth spot on the ladder at game time with a Five win – Seven loss record, which makes us two games out of first.

**Game two with the Jays

Before tonight’s game the boys are two and a half games out of first.

For you NFL fans Pat Summerall the voice of the league for as long as I can remember has passed away age 82.

Uniform of the day is  – Black jerseys with white and grey strip on the arm. Grey pants with black stripe down the leg.

The Blue Jays crew is behind the mike calling todays game.

**Game three with the Jays

I was not able to find a video feed today, all my options were not carrying the game. Game Cast on ESPN was all I had so I don’t have any of the regular info that I normally share with you.

From pictures it looks like it was black jerseys with white trim and lettering.

Jose Quintana got the win and that is his first of the season. Jason Danks made his first appearance in a Sox uniform for the season.

It’s the first shutout in Toronto since June 2007 and its only happened eight times. Tonight’s win help us to pick up a half a game on league leaders Detroit, Kansas City is in second a game and a half ahead of us.

**Game Four with the Jays

Dayan Viciedo was injured at bat and not sure what the injury was, I will not be surprised that he will be out tomorrow for the first meeting with the Minnesota Twins.

I am not sure what is happening with Chris Sale, He is getting rattled easy and with a 5.00. Just feels like Robin might need to have the pitching staff spend  little extra time with him. See if there might be something in the mechanics that needs worked on.

Ken and Steve were behind the mike today and make this girl very happy. I love when they call, just the silliness and they are both so full of knowledge.

Uniform of the day — Grey pants with a black strip, Black jersey with white sleeve trip and white lettering and numbers.

Jose Quintana pitched a solid 6 2/3 innings, another good outing. Not sure what happened from that first appearance but whatever he did, he needs to keep it going.

Nate Jones can in for Chris and held the score to just the three runs.

I know it’s the first road trip and all but things just didn’t feel right. Seemed like everyone was uncomfortable and things just didn’t settle.  We could only manage two wins in a row. Let’s hope going home will bring some confidence, as the Minnesota Twins arrive for a three game series starting tomorrow, the Cleveland Indians invade for a three game series and the Tampa Bay Rays come for their first visit to close out this 20 game series. Heading towards a much-needed day off.

Just a side note, I wont be with you on the 25 of April, due to ANZAC Day in Australia. For those of you who are not familiar with the day, it is similar to Memorial Day in the USA. I will join you later in the day for Dugout notes.

OK Kids, let’s pack and go home.

See you on the field
