Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

After losing to the Baltimore Orioles 10-4, what do the Chicago White Sox resemble more than anything else?  While there are probably as many different visions of hell as there are Sox Fans, here's one most of us probably share.  The Sox are a group of individuals on a sinking ship.  And it's every man for himself.

Three homeruns tonight.  Two of them were solo shots.  The Sox only managed five other hits the entire evening.  Kudos to Carlos Lee for being the one and only White Sox with enough patience to take a walk.  Sox Fans, who would have ever thought he would be the one?

It's anybody's guess why Jerry "The Tinkerer" Manuel decided to put Lee back in the #3 slot after shoving the slumping Frank Thomas back in that spot for just one game yesterday.  Lee was 0 for 3.  Thomas 0 for 4.  Maybe Manuel knows there is no difference either way?

Here's a more plausible theory:  Manuel doesn't know anything.  He probably doesn't care either.  If he does, he's doing a fantastic job covering it up.

Jon Garland simply imploded on the mound.  Chased in the fourth inning, he gave up eight runs on eight hits.  Reliever Matt Ginter helped him by letting all three inherited runners score.  He added a couple more of his own just for good measure.  The Sox were blown out with six earned runs in a game that had been tied 3-3.  Do we need to mention they never recovered?  Didn't think so.

Manuel's Dead Sox responded to the fourth inning carnage by going hitless the next three innings.  There were eight Sox strikeouts in the game.

Finally in the eighth, Ray Durham broke the corpseball march.  Naturally nobody was on base.  What's the difference.  He'll be gone next year anyway.  Who can blame him for padding his personal stats?  Nobody wearing the silver and black will survive this year's shipwreck.

Eight games under .500.  Look at the bright side.  Maybe they'll strike.

Ray Durham

2 for 4, two runs scored, and a solo shot homer.  It ought to come in handy for negotiating his big free agent contract next winter.
