Sox Lose, Sun Shines, Grass Green

It was another bad weekend of White Sox baseball, brightened only by another great Mark Buehrle start on what is increasingly looking like Buehrle's farewell tour.  The Sox hit the ball a bit better than usual the past two days, but a mediocre start by Vazquez foiled any chance at two consecutive wins.

That being said...

The two guys that really need to start hitting the ball a bit are Josh Fields and Jermaine Dye, and both obliged by combining for a 9-for-22 weekend at the plate.  Fields in particular looked very good at the plate, flashing his power and turning  on a couple of inside pitches.  He certainly has some very unique power -- there are a few balls that look like routine flies but end up going a long way.  For example, I thought his double down the right field line today was a "ducksnort" that would've been caught by Xavier Nady -- it ended up going all the way to the warning track before bouncing over the wall in foul territory for a ground-rule double.

Jermaine has certainly picked it up at the right time, because...

the trade rumors have picked up.  The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting the Mets having interest in Mark Buehrle, and the Dye rumors are still looming.  I'm sure the value of a couple of months for Buehrle or Dye is what will be the main topic of discussion -- who am I kidding, it already has been -- over the next month-and-a-half.
