Pierzynski exceeding expectations in ‘09

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th August 2009

Over a decade of offensive excellence, the 2009 season just might be A.J. Pierzynski’s most consistent with the bat.

But the durable White Sox catcher politely disagrees with such an assessment.

“This year I’m kind of disappointed with where I’m at right now,” Pierzynski said. “I’m having a good year, but look at my RBI total and they are way down this year. It’s been very frustrating.

Cutler’s jab ‘wasn’t criticism’

Posted by GameSetMatch on 18th August 2009

One game into the preseason and already Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has had to smooth things out with one of his wide receivers.

Cutler commented to reporters about wide receiver Devin Hester’s failure to break up an interception on a pass that fell short Saturday night following the team’s 27-20 preseason loss to Buffalo. His remark seemed to rub some people the wrong way.
“Devin is more of a go-get-it guy; he is not really a back shoulder or jump-up-and-get-it (guy),” Cutler said Saturday. “You learn from it.

Ramirez in lineup prior to rainout

Posted by GameSetMatch on 17th August 2009

For the first time in a week, Aramis Ramirez was in the starting lineup for the Cubs prior to Sunday’s rainout against the Pirates.


Ramirez missed five starts with a sore left shoulder and another two with a cold and sore throat. But he collected a pinch-hit single Saturday and was ready to go Sunday. He was slated to start at third base and bat fourth, but the rain precluded his return.

However, Ramirez’s would-be return did not get the Cubs’ offense back to full strength.

Shortstop Ryan Theriot was out of the lineup Sunday after he caught a stomach flu that has been going through his family. The Cubs had him stay home so he would not put his teammates at risk. Aaron Miles was to get the start in Theriot’s place.

Thome, Floyd converge to carry White Sox past Angels

Posted by admin on 6th August 2009

Thome’s two homers, four RBI help Sox, Floyd pick up big win vs. Angels

Another victory against an elite American League team was nice, but White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has set the bar.

A .500 record won’t get it done in the AL Central, and neither will a handful of wins above .500.

“Right now, the way our division plays, you don’t know how many games you have to be over .500, but .500 is not going to win it,” Guillen said Wednesday. “Five games over .500 is not going to win it. You’ve got to be better than that. I truly believe that.”

Podsednik's hit caps group effort

Posted by admin on 5th August 2009

The White Sox highlight reel from Tuesday’s 5-4 victory over the Angels before 30,228 at U.S. Cellular Field will start with Scott Podsednik’s third walk-off hit of the 2009 campaign.

And rightfully so. Podsednik’s drive lashed into right-center off of Kevin Jepsen (3-3) scored Jayson Nix, who had doubled with two outs to start the ninth-inning rally, and moved the White Sox (55-52) within one game of first-place Detroit (55-50) in the American League Central.

That tape of Tuesday’s top moments then might move to Gordon Beckham, who launched his sixth home run of the season off of Los Angeles starter John Lackey in the opening inning and singled home Podsednik with the tying run in the seventh.
