- Patience -- Wakefield's knuckler is tough to keep in the zone. Don't chase. Wait for your pitch.
- Big Game Freddy -- Garcia is 39-13 during the day, and much better on the road. He also thinks of himself as a big game pitcher. Time to prove it. -- Throw strikes.
- Quiet the Crownd -- The White Sox are the best first inning team in baseball. Get out to an early lead and take the crowd out of the game.
