It had to be due to that power hitting outfield they started. Never seen anything like it before. This one did have the feeling of a real baseball game. Doesn't take much to satisfy a win-starved Sox fandom.

I have been a Sox fan for a long time and seen many rebuilds. That is why I am not all that crazy about another one. Finally I saw something different. It meant something when Renteria let his young pitcher finish the 8th inning. That is the stuff that is important. Now let's see if more of this stuff happens.

That will be one ugly rebuild.

Promising weekend for the starting pitching- Lopez and Giolito at the big league level and Rodon, Kopech and Cease down on the farm.

Fry is a real find for the bullpen- along with Jones and Rondon- the back end is starting to firm up. I'd like to see Gomez called up to replace Volstad- see if he can be a decent 6th/7th inning guy.

If you're an older Sox fan, I guess you could count everything post-1977 as a rebuild too, although I think Veeck was trying to build a competitive team in 1978.

How/why is 2013-2014 considered a rebuilding era? There was no rebuilding happening in those years. Retooling? Yes. But rebuilding? Not by a long shot.

Retooling is a more accurate description. Shutting it down after 1 year was a massive mistake

Yeah, the left side of their infield is out, and Odor looks as though he's completely forgotten how to hit a baseball. A morbidly obese 44-year-old is their best pitcher. They are having some problems.

Fine with me. I was in need of a few White Sox wins for the sake of my mental health.

Maybe it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme, but I was happy to see Renteria leave Lopez in the game. Usually, it's an automatic hook, but for Renteria have enough faith in the kid to let him get the out, well done.

I'm just glad Renteria heard me screaming through my TV set "to leave the kid in there!"

Personally, I would rather see Renteria challenge the younger guys. I mentioned it before but Ozzie did the same thing with Jon Garland and that helped him a lot. Eventually they're going to have to learn how to work out of jams. That doesn't mean make them throw 150 pitches, but pick the spots.

Got to take in yesterday's game with [Proud dad] my new Purdue ChE graduate [/Proud dad] daughter. At first, I thought we were in for another 6-7 innings of the Sox bullpen, as Lopez was up to (or very close to) 50 pitches at the end of two innings. But, he righted the ship and threw almost the same number of pitches (57) in innings three through eight. And I did like that Ricky left him in there to face, and strike out, Choo.


On the downside, though, Davidson went for the golden sombrero...
