IBM, assuming you are going to tune in to the White Sox game to watch Youk's 1st AB?

Pitcher's best friend, 6-4-3 double play to end the inning.

Of course the worst possible scenario for Middlebrooks, two plays at 3rd and both of them problems. Batistia hot shot takes a bad bounce then Lawerie beats out a play to third. Can here Sox "fans" not, Youk would have made that play.

Saw this earlier today, good read. Love the last paragraph since it is so true. I'm expecting Youk to got 5-5 with a HR and 4-6 RBI, then promptly pull something on his first play of game 2 for the White Sox putting him on the DL.

I'm hoping Pedy gets going "hotter than a firecracker" like Bobby said the other day. He's been looking better at the plate lately.

Dustin with the three bagger, wonder if they will give him double with an error.

If they don't hit I'm guessing it will be a post Youk trade hangover they've got going on.

From everything I've read today, it seem that the Chicago deal was the best they were going to get. That makes sense to me. If there was a better deal elsewhere they wouldn't have traded him to a) and AL team, and b) a team that will potentially compete with them for the WC. Also, if they waited until closer to the trading deadline, and Youk doesn't improve offensively the market will get awfully small for his services. Better players will be made available from teams looking to cut salary. Actually think this is the best they could get for him at this time, or at any time.

IBM, he doesn't look focused. Wonder if they had a late night seeing Youk off your way.

Paging IBM, Paging IBM...please pick up the white courtesy phone, your input from the Chicago media and word coming out of the Windy City is requested.

Agreed AG, with the drop off here I'm having to resort to commenting on Boston.com to at least get a bit of back and forth (and I feel dirty after each session). I'm going to try and pick up the slack on the gamers at least. Got a new laptop (wife monopolizes the other) and hope to be able to at least fill out some of the Sox side of YFSF at least until the end of the season hits and hopefully some of the regulars get back.

Is the Youk trade the Nomar trade of 2004? I doubt it, but some similarities. Both career Sox players, both well likes by the fans. Both considered clubhouse problems on the team. One move helped the team during the season, what will the other do? I'm sure Nomar would have loved to have the send off, but he decided to sit on the bench while Jeter decided to dive in to the stands after a foul ball.

So I've spent the last few weeks over at Boston.com commenting (considering I've been blasting every post with logic and reason you may call it trolling) on the Extra Bases blog. Other than needing a shower I've come to the realization on a couple of things: 1. There are so many unreasonable Red Sox fans that I'm truly surprised there hasn't been a march with torches and pitchforks on Fenway. 2. Even if I'm the only one posting here on this site, it is light years more intelligent than the posts on Boston.com. Yeesh - there are actual Red Sox fans that don't see moving Noma...er Youk as a good move.

Looks like the Sox will be eating 5.5M of 6+M owed to Youk. Considering that Middlebrooks is making 450K, it could still be a good deal.

AG - yep, last player from 04 is Ortiz and he wasn't playing. Nice move by the Sox to pull Youk after the triple, he was able to get accolades from the crowd and give his teammates one final high-five/hug and come out of the game. If the Red Sox ate a bunch of his remaining salary this year the deal is in the White Sox favor, if Chicago took on the remaining of this year's salary then it was an OK trade.

Lester pitched well for 1st third, now given up 2 runs. The Braves are teeing off on his curve, he is leaving it hanging.

Clemens is in Fenway tonight, wearing a 100 year Fenway Park hat and sitting front row of the monster seats. So I guess the Rocket Redemption tour is starting in Boston, wonder if he'll hit Toronto then on to NYC before ending up in Houston to work for the team. Only in America!

Dice-K retired 14 straight, remove the 1st inning and he's pitching great. Maybe do a backward relief, have someone like Miller pitch his 1st start.
