This is the penultimate, the second-last Game Thread As We Have Known It - we got the chat room up for last night's game, and it was so cool and so fast that it almost distracted me form the ball game itself. Never hit refresh again! Wow, is that cool.
It's going today, of course. The BattersBox Game Thread Chat Room is located on irc.freenode.net , channel #battersbox. And of course, the easiest way to get to there is to use Batter's Box's own Java applet, which will automatically use your Batter's Box account name, if you have one and you're logged in. Not that that's necessary.
Lineups? Do we have lineups? Of course. The Jays have shaken things up:
Podsednik, lf Hudson, 2b Iguchi, 2b Catalanotto, lf Everett, dh Koskie, dh Konerko, 1b Hillenbrand, 3b Rowand, cf Hinske, 1b Dye, rf Zaun, c Uribe, ss Wells, cf Widger, c Rios, rf Crede, 3b Adams, ss Garland, p Lilly, pTaking the pressure off V-Dub? Or just getting his first pitch outs out of the way?
