White Sox unveil their new manager for his first home opener, Jim Leyland isn't saying much but Kenny Williams is, and something is askew around home plate.

CHICAGO -- Friday marked Robin Ventura's first home game in uniform as a member of the White Sox since Sept. 20, 1998. He was asked if he remembered his last game at then-Comiskey Park. He didn't. But of course, we can look it up. He went 1 for 3 with a walk against the Red Sox, batting behind Frank Thomas and Albert Belle.

Picks for April 7

Scanning the early odds, I see a six-pack of plays on Thursday's schedule, all in day games and including one on a heavy underdog.

Revisiting Nate's attempt to quantify the trade-off in scheduling cold-weather games.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

As we welcome another stretch of cold-weather baseball and its attendant scheduling concerns, here's another look at Nate Silver's statistical take on the subject in a "Lies, Damned Lies" column from April 13, 2007.

On the Beat: Ozzie Loves the Heat

1

John Perrotto

White Sox skipper Guillen knows the pressure is on in 2011 to make good on Jerry Reinsdorf's off-season spending spree.

Ozzie Guillen loves to talk more than anyone in baseball. The White Sox manager regales the media in his daily press greetings and several times each season is guaranteed to say something that makes its way into the national headlines.

The Braves' three-month run of leading the National League East ends, along with other news and notes from around the major leagues.

It would have been the perfect time to be carrying a pin. As quiet as it was in the Braves' clubhouse on Tuesday night, there was really a strong possibility you could have actually heard it drop.

John Perrotto

The Orioles are 7-1 under Buck Showalter along with other news and notes from around the majors.

The team with the worst record in the major leagues at this time of the year is almost always lifelessly trudging toward the finish line. It is mailing the games in and counting down the days until the end of the season.

Prospectus Hit and Run: The Big Hurt

Jay Jaffe

A look at Frank Thomas' Hall of Fame credentials.

Last week saw a pair of future Hall of Famers officially hang up their spikes. The decisions weren't surprising, in that neither Frank Thomas nor Tom Glavine actually played in 2009 after seeing only limited duty and success in 2008. Both are well over 40 years old, both have reached milestones that virtually guarantee entry into Cooperstown, and both deserve to be hailed for their outstanding careers. Today, I'll dig into Thomas' case, saving Glavine for later in the week.

On the Beat: Midweek Update

John Perrotto

The Cardinals fire on all cylinders, the Pirates and A's reload, the always-voluble Ozzie, plus views from around the game.

It is hard not to think of the Cardinals without the vision of Albert Pujols hitting another home run dancing in your head. The first baseman is the most dominant offensive player in the game today, as he leads the major leagues in nearly every offensive category imaginable, including EqA (.370) and VORP (89.8). Put left fielder Matt Holliday, who has accumulated a .367 EqA since being acquired from the Athletics in a July 24 trade, in the middle of the lineup with Pujols and it is little wonder that the Cardinals have an 11½-game lead over the Cubs, and a magic number of 13 for clinching the National League Central title.

The Dodgers no longer rule the roost, but with four of the top five teams in the AL East, they're in tough company.

On the Beat: Cooper's Optimism

John Perrotto

The Astros' manager knows that he has a veteran team in need of special management, and is confident--in defiance of PECOTA--that it can contend

It seems as if Cecil Cooper isn't sure what to make of having the oldest roster in the major leagues. On one hand, the Astros' manager worries if his team's 4-7 start might be a sign that his team is too old. "You don't expect a veteran team to start off this slowly," Cooper said. "You expect that more from a younger team still trying to get its feet on the ground."
