Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

Jerry Manuel tried a new act filled with lots of new characters.  Too bad the ending was the same for Sox Fans.  Our Pale Hose suck big-time again, 4-2 losers to Cleveland.

Corpseball is all you'll see at Comiskey these days.  Don't bother trying to get a refund for the price of your tickets--though clearly you deserve one.

Benchwarmer Jeff Liefer made the newspapers whining about playing time.  So naturally Jerry Manuel had the crybaby in Friday's lineup.  The slumping Frank Thomas and Ray Durham each got the night off so Jerry "The Tinkerer" could try out his latest permutation of underachieving ballplayers to lose a ballgame.  They didn't disappoint.

Against pitching slug Danys Baez, Manuel's miserable Sox lineup managed just four hits.  #3 hitter Magglio Ordonez was a giant goose egg for the game, joined by Sandy Alomar (himself 0-fer) failing to get a hit with two out and runners in scoring position.  The Sox got four gift-wrapped walks and managed just one measly run through the first six innings.

The young starting rotation is showing signs of cracking under the pressure to hold the opposition scoreless.  Jon Garland was effective through six innings.  He made only one mistake of note, a gopher pitch in the fourth inning to break up the scoreless tie. 

Did we even need to mention the Sox hadn't scored yet?  Didn't think so.

The house of cards finally came tumbling down in the seventh.  Garland was charged with three runs on two hits because the very first pitch by reliever Kelly Wunsch was laced for a 2-rbi single.  Wunsch was a bit shaky because Manuel hadn't bothered to have anyone warming up in the bullpen when Garland began to fold.

Will somebody please poke Jerry Manuel with a stick!  He's being paid to stay awake, you know.

The Sox managed exactly nothing through the final five innings except a run that scored on an error.  This team is dead from the neck up.

Here's a promotional idea for marketing v.p. Rob Gallas:  "Half-price night, for half-ass effort!"

This is brutal to watch.

2.1 innings of shutout ball, holding Cleveland hitless with two K's and one walk.  Sox bats kept slumbering anyway.
