Game 37, White Sox at Mariners

Thank goodness that powerhouse Rangers team is out of here. Contreras v Silva, 7:10.

I’m eagerly looking forward to what Baker teased:

McLaren also had some interesting stuff to say about the state of the team — including that he is now putting what he thinks is the best nine out there each day without worrying about hurting anyone’s feelings — and I’ll get to that a little later.

So before he was putting out what he thought was a poor nine because he was worrying about feelings?

Does this mean that he and the team now feel that coming up with a better lineup is more important than having happy players and, presumably, a more harmonious clubhouse?

Who exactly was McLaren coddling, and why?

I hope these questions and more will be answered.

And if I could ask a favor, it would be great if despair didn’t veer into strange vaguely sexist territory tonight. No one’s going to be happy if this all slides into Ban Fest 2008.

CF-L Ichiro!
2B-R Lopez
LF-L Ibanez
3B-R Beltre
DH-B Turbo
1B-R Sexson
C-L Clement
RF-R Balentien
SS-R Betancourt

Feelings presumably hurt: Johjima

    Check out the leverage the Twinkies imposed on the Red Sox tonight. Papelbon gets a 5.80 LI for a -.791 WPA.
