3-16-08: Sox 5 - Diamondbacks 6

I've had enough Diamondbacks and Rockies games against the White Sox to last all season. I'm very happy that they are in the National League and won't be playing the White Sox very much during the season. The Sox play the Rockies in Chicago for one three game series. That's it.

I like both teams, but it seems like the Sox are only playing the Rockies and Diamondbacks lately. Variety is the spice of life, you know. Oh well, it's only Spring Training.

The Sox lost another close game. I'd rather see the Sox lose close game, than get blown out. It shows that they can hang in there the entire game. I don't really know of anyone that likes losing by 12 runs, but I imagine it might be therapeutic in a strange way. Close games get the players ready for the season though.

The good:
A.J. Pierzynski went 3 for 5.

Tomo Ohka had two scoreless innings.

The bad:
Gavin Floyd gave up 5 runs. Although, only 4 were earned.

Jerry Owens may have been 3 for 5 at the plate, but he committed a throwing error.

The ugly:
Joe Crede was 0 for 5.

Andy Sisco gave up the winning run.

Joe Crede needs to find his swing. If his stock continues to plummet, there won't be any trades happening. He's getting better defensively, but his batting average is at .091. Jermaine Dye had a home run. He looks like he's returning to 2005 form. It's nice to see A.J. start to hit. This was a very close game and it could've gone either way. There will be some tough decisions coming up shortly. The bullpen will probably come down to the wire.
