Totally Biased Coverage EXCLUSIVELY from White Sox Interactive!



Enquiring Sox Fans want to know!



If only Sox Fans knew...
Last Series vs. Kansas City
  • You'll have to dig back into the memory banks for the Sox's last bout with Kansas City...  It was last week in Kansas City in which the Sox took 3 of 4 from the hapless Royals.
  • The only game the Sox lost was on Wednesday... the game Mark Buehrle started.
Totally Biased Sox Notes
  • It's going to take a real miracle for Mark Buehrle to get to that elusive 20-win plateau now.  With only 3 projected starts left, the Sox southpaw is on pace to finish the season with 19 wins.
  • What's all this talk about Aaron Rowand being a stud-in-the-making?  Since the All-Star Break, when Rowand began starting in center field, he's only hit .263 with 6 homers and 20 runs batted in.  Yeah, we need a new center fielder, guys.
  • So far, Sox outfielder Joe Borchard is the only player in 2002 to hit a homer in his Major League debut.  In fact, many of the talented prospects had problems even getting a hit.  While Joe only had one hit (a long one), in his MLB debut September 2nd against Toronto, he's joined by only a select few.  Toronto's Jayson Werth (September 1, against New York), Detroit's Omar Infante (September 7, against New York), Boston's Freddy Sanchez (September 10, at Tampa Bay), Cincinnati's Willy Mo Pena (September 10 against Pittsburgh), Cleveland's Victor Martinez (September 10 vs. Toronto), and San Francisco's Trey Lunsford (September 12 at San Diego) ech got one hit in their MLB debut thus far this September.  Montreal's Jamey Carroll gets extra credit for getting 2 hits in his big league debut (but it was against the Cubs).
  • How you play within your division is what seperates silver medalists from division champs.  The Soa are a measely 35-32 in the AL Central this year, while Minnesota (who will more than likely clinch the division this week) are 42-21.
Know thy Enemy!
  • How can the Royals start two guys with ERAs over 5.00?  Easy when you're the worst pitching staff in the American League.  Kansas City's 5.29 team ERA is tied with Tampa Bay for the worst team ERA in the American League so far.
  • And, on top of that, it doesn't help when you don't score any runs.  So far in 2002, Kansas City has scored an abysmal 671 runs, putting them in 11th place in the 14-team AL in that category.  The only teams to cross the plate fewer times than the Royals?  Baltimore (628), Tampa Bay (608), and Detroit (542).
  • Watch out Josh Paul, Mark Johnson, and Miguel Olivio.  Get your arms loose guys, because the Royals lead the American League with 125 stolen bases.  If they could only get those guys to run to home, too, they'd be in business.
  • Here's how bad Kansas City would be if not for Paul Byrd (a 2003 preview, if you will).  Byrd leads the team in wins and ERA (obviously).  After him, however, the 2nd most wins on the staff is Jeff Suppan (with 8), and after Byrd, the next lowest ERA on the team from a guy who's thrown enough innings to qualify for the AL ERA Title (meaning, 1 IP per team game) is again Suppan, with his 5.60 ERA.
What to watch for!
  • Where will Jiminez, Valentin, Borchard, Lee, Liefer, Thomas, Rowand, and Harris going play tomorrow?  WHO KNOWS!?!?!
  • Twins to clinch the division.
  • Rowand twisting an ankle when he steps into a hole in the outfield created by The Rolling Stones concert this past weekend.
  • Who cares?  Both these teams suck.  Hey, the Bears are playing the mighty Falcons this weekend.
