Just some things I wanted to note for you guys from the road trip.
**First game in Washington against the Nationals:
Alejandro De Aza had 2 doubles
Paul Konerko hit a home run
Gordon Beckham has a nerve injury in his wrist and will be a day-to-day issue if he can play or not, More on this when I can find out.
Jake Peavy‘s first walk of the season and the first home run hit off him came back to back.
Coach Ventura used four pitchers today – Nate Jones, Donnie Veal, Matt Lindstrom and Matt Thornton
**Second game in Washington against the Nationals:
At the start of the game the boys were a 1/2 game behind the Royals and Tigers.
Alejandro De Aza had another double
There was a delay in the start of the game due to the Umpires being stuck in traffic.
Gordon Beckham had scans on his wrist and there is no visible damage in his right wrist. He won’t try picking up a bat until at the earliest on Friday. There is some kind nerve damage but there are not exactly sure what has caused this.
In chatting with Ken Harrelson and Steve Stone (the boys called the game today) Jake Peavy said that “I just ran out of gas” He went on to share how disappointed he was and that it was a really hard night, which included the warmer weather.
**Game Three against Washington: Uniform colors for the night are grey pants with grey jersey.
Alex Rios has hit at least one double in each game.
Game being called by the crew from the Nationals
Series Thoughts…..It was a rough start to the season on the road. Alex Rios was the highlight with hitting at least one double in each of the games. Lets see if that continues in Cleveland. Pitching seemed to really struggle when getting into a jam and not being able to get out right away. The night that Jake Peavy was in residence on the mound, he really had to work hard, throwing more than normal and he was quoted as saying that he just ran out of gas.The only real concern was Gordon Beckham with the wrist injury. He is needing surgery and at the time of writing this I had not heard if he was already on the disabled list. The surprise for me was Conor Gillaspie, he has been quite a surprise and I can’t wait to see what happens with him. I hope me makes the most of the opportunity while Gordon is on the D.L
OK Gang, bags packed and off to my home state of Ohio, next stop is Progressive field and a three game series with the Cleveland Indians.
See you on the field.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura certainly cut the breaks and pulled a wild card on us all by calling up 27 year-old relief pitcher Duente Heath instead of others like Brian Omogrosso, Brent Morel, or Jordan Danks.
First of all, I should apologize to all of you non "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fans who didn't understand the 'wild card' reference...
