Nice crisp opener!

Good to see multi-hit games from several regulars, especially Eaton, Abreu and Garcia.

Two things from me, I know everyone else who posts in here will say the rest.

1. Adam Eaton - Loved watching his ABs today. Even the 11 pitch one in the 7th. I hope he makes pitchers work like that all year long. Even watching him run out his groundouts was great - he really hustles down the line.

2. Jose Abreu - Hit the ball hard in every AB. So awesome.

I haven't been this excited to watch the White Sox in quite some time.

Abreu is a monster. He's gonna hit some balls a long long way, and make it look effortless. Eaton looked pretty nice too.

Hell of a game by De Aza.

63 more wins to beat last season's record! The countdown starts now!

I can definitely get used to these new guys. Abreu is going to be a lot of fun to watch, Sale was Sale and De Aza showed off his power. Great start to the season.

I didn't get a chance to watch much of the game but I heard it on the radio, I think it will be a very entertaining year.

Did they announce Lindstrom as the closer or did he just happen to pick this one up?

Gillaspie third, eh? Well, he has always had a sweet swing I guess we'll see if it translates to success.

JB, hope you don't get mad at this: The Twins are crappy. They are perpetual losers.

I'm not saying the Sox are going to win the division but you don't win the division by losing to lousy teams.
It's always nice to win the opener regardless who the opponent is.
