White Sox in a very good place

Heading down the clubhouse after the White Sox outlasted the Indians 6-3 in 12 innings at Progressive Field Monday night, the home radio feed could be heard in the hallways. Veteran play-by-play man Tom Hamilton wasn't sounding too optimistic after the Tribe lost for the ninth time in 10 games, and he issued a warning about falling too far behind the Sox. "This is dangerous territory for the Indians,'' Hamilton said. "Chicago is a team that is starting to play with a lot of confidence.'' Hamilton has been around a long time, and he's one of the best announcers around. And this particular call is right on. The White Sox are still hitting like a last-place team, but you can just see slumping players like Orlando Cabera, Jim Thome, Paul Konerko and Nick Swisher starting to come around. When they do, even if it's just a little, the Sox are really going to be dangerous. The rotation seems to turn in a quality start every game, and the bullpen is anchored by two all-stars _ closer Bobby Jenks and setup man Scott Linebrink. The defense is pretty tight, and as manager Ozzie Guillen has been saying a lot lately, the White Sox might not have much speed, but they run the bases as well as can be expected. Monday was the unofficial start of summer, and the Sox have got to be liking where they're at.
