Sleep time in Seattle

(August 12)

Short take:  Corpseball

The young pitching really looks good.  The Sox won't be traveling to the west coast again till next year.  Ray Durham reached base twice (!) and Magglio Ordonez had an rbi.

Isn't it pathetic that you can summarize all the positive things from this game in one short paragraph?  Sox lose 2-1.  This time they deserved it.

Gary Glover got his first real chance to start for the Sox.  The spot start he got in Cleveland last month was strictly an eleventh hour maneuver necessitated by James Baldwin's trade.  Glover didn't disappoint handling the league's best offense with just seven hits allowed and one earned run.  Most impressive was his four strikeouts and no walks.

All of it was for nothing.  Sox hitters didn't have a clue against Seattle starter Joel Pineiro.  Kudos to Magglio Ordonez for being the first right-handed batter to get a hit off the guy in like a million years.  His rbi single in the fourth batted in Durham and tied the game at 1.  Such was the beginning, middle, and end of Sox offense.  The Sox went down in order the next five innings.  Pathetic.

Alan Embree was effective.  Who wudda thunk it?  Mighty Alan faced four of Seattle's best and retired them in order!  Whoo Hoo!

Why do Sox Fans next expect him to complain about needing more playing time?  Maybe because he has once already.

Kip Wells let the first two hitters reach base in the bottom of the eighth.  Bob Howry let the go-ahead runner score.  The Sox went down in order in the ninth.  A chance to pick up ground in the division race is wasted.  Are Sox Fans surprised by any of this? 

They're off on Monday.  Thank goodness.  Sox Fans need a break worse than the team.

Gary Glover

4.1 innings with 7 hits, 4 strikeouts, and no base on balls.  He didn't qualify for the win but given the Sox anemic offense, he was the best the Sox had in this mess.
