Sox News

The Sox have yet to lose a series this year, going 2-0-2. The Sox look to keep the big mo' going against the Yanks tonight.

The Sox open up their 12 game homestand with Mark Buehrle facing Yankee rookie Alex Graman. It's been raining for over an hour here in Chicago and there is a chance the game will be postponed. So it's possible the Yankees will be able to skip their 5th starter's spot in the rotation.

In other Sox news, Jose Valentin is going on the 15 day DL with a pulled hamstring. Hot hitting Juan Uribe will take his place. Even with Uribe playing well, the Sox will definitely miss Valentin's left handed bat in the lineup.

And speaking of left handed bats, did someone say we should trade Carlos Lee and bring up Jeremy Reed from the minors? Sounds like a good idea to me.
