Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

The ugly side of the 2002 White Sox was all too obvious once again in this mess of a ballgame from the Ballpark in Arlington.  The Sox pitching staff is used and abused, and Sox Fans are once again the humiliating victims for supporting a franchise that is less than serious about fielding a winner.  Well hey, what's a few more years when the clock has already been running 85 years now?

Does that make it sting any less Sox Fans.  Sorry--didn't think so.  Sox lose 11-6. 

Starter Jim Parque had nothing.  How this guy managed to get as far as even the second inning is a mystery.  Maybe Manuel has a minimum pitch count, too?  He gave up three walks in his short stay on the bump, allowing five runs on four hits.

It gets worse from there.  Reliever Matt Ginter was lit like a Christmas tree.  Though Rocky Biddle was effective in his three scoreless innings, a Sox comeback attempt was doomed when Antonio Osuna and Kelly Wunsch teamed up to allow another three runs in the bottom of the eighth to break the back of the Sox.  Sox pitchers gave up ten walks on the night.

The only positive news from this game was some life from the Sox hitters.  Carlos Lee managed a solo dinger in the fourth, and the Sox pounded Texas pitching for five runs in the fifth.  The key shot was a three-run dinger by Frank Thomas, back in Jerry "The Tinkerer" Manuel's line up in yet another slot, #5 behind Magglio Ordonez.  Slumping all-star Paul Konerko was left on the bench.

Would this be a bad time to note Jeff Liefer was 0-fer again tonight?  How long before the Tinkerer reneges on his promise to give the lefty power hitter more playing time? 

Other Sox members of the goose egg club were Willie Harris (0 for 3), Jose Valentin (0 for 4), and Josh Paul (0 for 4).

No problems.  We'll get things right playing Oakland.  Yeah, sure...

2 for 4, including a 3-run shot to put the Sox back in the game.  Not enough to win, of course.
