Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

It would be nice to think Sunday's big victory (finally) over the Chicago Cubs had (finally) put our beloved White Sox back on the road (finally) to playing the type of ball we know and expect from a contender (finally) chasing a championship.  However, being Sox Fans, we're never stupid enough to believe the "next year" fairy tale our neighbors routinely believe, and this year's club continues to show too many warts for steely-eyed Sox Fan realists to overlook.  The Sox get bombed early, but come back and pound one of the former messiahs of the Lovable Losers, earning a 10-7 victory at Wrigley Field.

Yes Sox Fans, life around the office water cooler is a bit safer than we feared it might become.

As we suspected Todd "Veteran Presence" Ritchie marched straight out to the mound and did everything humanly possible to blow this game from the very start.  Spotted a two-run lead in the top of the first, Ritchie allowed the anemic Flubs to string together four hits for three runs.  Just like that, the Sox were trailing.  Ritchie fed his gopher to lead off the second inning and the Sox were trailing even more.  Sox Fans, we've been here before!

Thank God for the former Flubbie Messiah, Kerry Wood!  (no pun intended).  Wood was wild enough walk the bases loaded for Carlos Lee in the third.  Ka-boom!  Lee's round-tripper  not only brought the Sox back from the dead, he spotted Ritchie another two-run lead!  Woo hoo!

Ah, the head case wasn't done yet.  Ritchie served his fat pitch to the biggest dope to ever draw a major league paycheck, Todd Hundley.  The two-run dinger tied the game again.  Jerry Manuel had enough and pinch hit for Ritchie in the fourth inning.  He allowed six earned runs, nine hits, and two dingers in a measly three innings pitched.  Sox Fans can't imagine where we would be without him around to be the stabilizing force in our rotation. 

First place, maybe?

Keith Foulke was outstanding in long relief, 2.2 innings of shutout ball, and no hits allowed.  It was the turning point of the game.  With Foulke finally shutting down the hapless Cubs, the Sox hitters were allowed to pound the Flubbies without wondering if the runs they were scoring would be enough to hold up!

Again it was Carlos Lee providing the big blow, a three-run dinger in the fifth, to put the Sox ahead for good.  He accounted for seven of the nine runs batted in by the Sox. 

A couple of meaningless Sox errors will have the moronic dolts of Chicago's media intelligentsia wringing their hands once more.  This, They will conclude, is the fault of Jerry Manuel.  Amongst all his faults, these folks have identified the Sox skipper's failure to pay-off the official scorer for changing more of those errors committed to hits.  After all, fielding percentage is the only major baseball stat that truly is in the eyes of the beholder. 

That's right Phil Rogers and Steve Rosenbloom.  Try watching a few ballgames where the scorer changes errors to hits back to errors again, and then convince the rest of us why we shouldn't laugh ourselves silly to read the nonsense you get paid to write. 

Write your fairy tales for the moronic idiots on the other side of town, okay?
