Time for White Sox Nation to Panic?

Yes. Definitely. Panic hard. Get drunk and panic tonight.

Meanwhile, across town, my early impression is that the Cubs have made some improvements. Ronny Cedeno runs real fast and seems to open up more possibilities for "fundamental ball" aka "small ball" aka "non-Three Stooges style baseball." The absence of Corey Feldman, er, Patterson is a welcome relief. Matt Murton could be a star. Derrek Lee looks like he could repeat his fine performance from last season. Hey, the Cubs might even make it as far as third place this year. Too bad their pitching staff is such a disaster.

Although the Sox hurlers have no right to brag so far. Freddy Garcia didn't look so good the other day. Jon Garland tonight ... ugh. It may be early, but it's never too early to panic. Run into the street screaming, "Why Boone Logan, Ozzie?! Why then?!"

At least on the North Side they can look forward to Sunday's mound debut of Cat Power. Heh heh ... I said "mound."

To piggyback on A.J.'s comment, hey, at least I got... okay, I got nothin'.

If the Sox pitching gets any worse, we're gonna need a bigger boat.

Wait, sorry, wrong post.

Still better off than the Cubs.

The thing about Kerry Wood is he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn't even seem to be livin'... 'til he throws the first pitch to ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.

"My arm!" he's hollerin'. "My arm!!! I think it's broken!!!"
