Great win for the White Sox tonight. Coming off a tough series against the Twinkies, we needed to get off on the right foot against the Royals. And we did. Javy Vazquez pitched well, which hopefully portends good things from him down the stretch.
But the coolest about tonight’s game was the successful debut of Ken Griffey Jr. I have to admit, it was something of a mind trip to see him in a White Sox uniform. It will take some getting used to…and there is a good chance he just a two-month rental…but I am officially on board and excited. And I think the major media outlets are underestimating how successful this deal will ultimately be.
We have a veteran team filled with guys who have won a World Series before. As all Sox fans know, we go through slumps and sometimes it seems like the guys get a little too comfortable. Now we have more good hitters than we have lineup spots. Complacency is not an option. And I think seeing Kenny Williams make a move like this proves to the vets that management believes in them and will do anything to give us a shot to win another title. I see Junior providing a huge spark, and if the pitching can regain its consistency…well just don’t stop believing.
Nardi Contreras…just for fun.
