Looks like Cliff Lee is going to get his first win.

Brian Roberts of the Orioles is back on the DL with a diaper rash(sore groin). How many times did Cal Ripken have a sore groin when he had his consecutive game streak?

Carlos Lee traded to the Marlins.

Pierzynski just ran over Napoli at home plate and made him drop the ball to score. Poetic justice?

^ The Red Sox didn't need him

Some guy named Mauro Gomez started at 3rd base today for Boston and Nick Punto started the previous 2 games (the Red Sox score 6 total runs in Oakland over 3 days).

Not sure why they didn't keep him as a bench player...who cares whether he would have been happy or not if he wasn't starting.

I think it's pretty obvious the change of scenery and getting away from Bobby V has re-energized him - I don't think he'd be playing this way right now if he was still in Boston.

I also heard during today's game with Crain going to the DL retro to June 23rd and calling up another rookie pitcher, the White Sox 25-man roster has 10 rookies. Hey whatever it takes.

Youkilis with Boston: .692OPS
"Re-Energized" Youkilis with Chicago: .709OPS

Not really seeing much difference.... I think eventually he'll hit better, but that's because he's a good hitter, not some chemistry/re-energized narrative

Well first he wouldn't be starting until Middlebrooks gets hurt so in that sense the change makes a difference for his performance. Plus his numbers might not be way up, but he's had several clutch hits for us already in the short time he's been here. FWIW his average is .281 with the White Sox so far. That's almost 50 points higher than his season average with Boston. And his defense was top-notch tonight. I keep wincing expecting him to hurt himself, but so far that hasn't happened.

Maybe he's just average but we're so used to poor production and shaky defense from the position it looks great.

EDIT: Actually the MLB.com numbers had not been updated with tonight's stats. Youk is batting .306 since coming to the White Sox.

Re: MLB Wednesday, July 4, 2012 "Independence Day" edition

Also saw the White Sox are leading the majors with a .303 batting average with RISP. That is almost unreal for a team that has made an art of stranding the bases loaded with less than 2 outs in the past.
