We’re getting ready for our 14th season Bill Mazeroski Jersey , and we want to get your input on the year to come."It’s that time of year again! As we count down the final days of 2018, we are all thinking of ways to improve for the coming year. From losing those last few pesky pounds to eating better to getting more exercise, everyone has a goal or two in mind for 2019.That goes for us here at Bless You Boys, too. We’ll admit it; the 2018 season probably wasn’t our best. From writing fewer stories to missing out on a bit of analysis we might have tackled in previous years, we as a staff think we could have done better in a few areas. The team on the field didn’t help, but there are still things we can do better as a site to serve you, our dear readers.Speaking of, this is where you come in. We want your input on how things should go in the coming year — game coverage, prospect reports Dave Parker Jersey , news and analysis, you name it! If there’s a way we can do it differently or better than we have in previous years, we’re all ears. We want 2019 to be a banner year for us at Bless You Boys, even if it isn’t for our beloved Detroit Tigers. We’re starting a bit early, with our top 30 prospects list already out in full, and we will begin rolling out individual reports in the coming days and into January. We have a few new ideas to expand on coverage both here and during spring training, but as mentioned, we want to know what you think too.As always, please keep the comments as constructive as possible. Let us know what we can do better or differently in the upcoming season Josh Harrison Jersey , and we’ll put that advice straight to good use. Be sure to rec comments that you agree with so we can more easily see the best responses!And most importantly, thank you for reading! CHICAGO (AP) — Yoan Moncada has a more aggressive approach at the plate, a new position in the field and a strong belief that games like this are going to be the norm for him.Moncada hit a go-ahead, two-run single in the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox won a wild home opener, beating the Seattle Mariners 10-8 on Friday.A day after their home opener was postponed because of inclement weather, the White Sox ended Seattle’s four-game winning streak. The Mariners had been off to a franchise-best 7-1 start.Chicago took advantage of three errors by shortstop Tim Beckham in the first inning for an early lead, then rallied when the Seattle bullpen couldn’t find the strike zone. The White Sox drew three walks in the seventh, with Moncada’s single off Zac Rosscup making it 9-8 after Cory Gearrin (0-1) hit Welington Castillo with the bases loaded.Moncada, batting .458 with 10 RBIs through six games Gregory Polanco Jersey , just missed a grand slam in the first when he lined a two-run double against Yusei Kikuchi that deflected off a leaping center fielder Mallex Smith’s glove.“Days like today are going to come in a bunch this season,” he said through a translator.The White Sox are counting on that from the 23-year-old Moncada in his second full season. A key piece in the deal that sent ace Chris Sale to Boston at the 2016 winter meetings, he led the majors in strikeouts and committed more errors than any other second baseman last season.But he adjusted his approach at the plate, switched to third base. And he is looking like a different player in the early going.Tim Anderson added three hits, including a solo homer in the eighth. He scored four runs and drove in three after missing two games to be with wife Bria for the birth of their second child, daughter Paxton.Domingo Santana and Dan Vogelbach homered early for Seattle. Ryon Healy and Mitch Haniger hit two-run homers in the sixth for an 8-6 lead.Ryan Burr (1-0) worked a scoreless 1 1/3 innings in relief. Alex Colome retired all three batters in the ninth for his second save in as many opportunities, and Chicago overcame a shaky start by Reynaldo Lopez to win for the third time in four games.“We got a lot of gamers on the team, man, and even though we lost that game we showed a lot of fight and it shows a lot about our team Jung-ho Kang Jersey ,” Beckham said.STARTERS STRUGGLEKikuchi gave up six runs — four earned — and seven hits over five innings in his first start since his father died of cancer over the weekend.Lopez allowed six runs and six hits. Healy chased him with a tying, two-run drive to the left-field bullpen in the sixth after Omar Narvaez led off with a single. Jace Fry retired the next two batters before Smith singled and Haniger drove a two-run shot to center.JIMENEZ AT HOMEEloy Jimenez acknowledged he felt some pressure after going 0 for 4 in his first game in Chicago. But the White Sox’s prized prospect also enjoyed the moment.“I tried having fun,” said Jimenez, whose parents were at the game. “Especially (since) it was a tough day. I tried to not think about it and just enjoy the moment and be playing with the fans.”QUOTABLE“A lot of exciting things happened. I’m a dad. I had a good game today. Special week for me.” — Anderson.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: Manager Scott Servais said INF/DH Edwin Encarnacion (left hand) was feeling “a lot better” and was available to pinch hit after being scratched from the lineup against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday. The Mariners opted to keep Encarnacion out of the lineup for the second straight game because of the chilly conditions in Chicago. … Servais wasn’t sure if 2B Dee Gordon (tight groin) will be available Saturday after exiting this game in the fourth inning.White Sox: OF Jon Jay (strained right hip) had no timetable for his return from the injured list, though he said he is getting better. He also said the problem sidelined him last month is more in the groin area.UP NEXTMariners: RHP Mike Leake (1-0, 3.00 ERA) struck out seven and scattered seven hits over six solid innings in a win against Boston on Saturday.White Sox: RHP Lucas Giolito (1-0, 2.70) looks to build on a solid start against Kansas City, taking a no-hitter to the seventh inning. He was 10-13 with a major league-worst 6.13 ERA in 32 starts last season.
