Flushed Down The De-troilet!

August 29 vs Detroit


Today's temperature:

"I don't think this is quite what Jerry envisioned when he decided to start Cotts in NY and let Burlymon wait until Friday. Funny how one silly little arbitrary decision can carry so much weight. Eventually maybe Jerry will learn to get out of the team's way, but for now let's hope these past 2 days were just a bump in the road..."

Short Take: Tigers Pounce All Over Buehrle

    Many a Sox fan has described this season as a roller coaster. Dizzying highs which plunge into excruciating lows. The coaster hit its pinnacle earlier this week in New York with back to back spankings of the Yankees, but all off a sudden the wind is right back in our faces and Sox fans are screaming with fright as the coaster rockets downward into the cavernous hellhole that is Comerica Park. Sox lose the first game of their weekend tilt with the Kitties 8-4 in a game that proved that right now karmic alignment is against the Sox as a result of bad management.

    When Jerry "Tinkerer/General Disarray/F***ng Idiot" Manuel decided to pitch Neal Cotts in Yankee Stadium to give lefty ace Mark Buehrle an extra day off, Sox fans and the national media shook their collective heads. We all know what happened to Cotts yesterday--and the extra day's rest did nothing for Buehrle but make him one angry hurler. It showed from the moment he took the hill and only got worse as the game wore on. Big Mark gives up 8 runs on 10 hits while walking 4 over 5 short but painful innings. Instead of evening his record at 12-12, Buehrle drops to 11-13. Sox fans have to be wondering if his confidence dropped as well--it can't be easy getting slapped around by this ragtag bunch. Scott Schoeneweis posts a decent outing in relief, surrendering just 2 hits over 3 innings, but the damage was already done.

    The good news is the Sox managed to bang out 13 hits against mediocre pitching, something they usually have trouble with. The bad news is that they only produced 4 runs off those hits. To make matters worse, Magglio Ordonez leaves the game in the bottom of the 1st inning after jamming his finger attempting to make a sliding catch. The Sox have done a pretty good job avoiding the injury bug this year and everyone who follows the silver and black is praying this is nothing major. Magglio looked to be off to a good start tonight before leaving the game, belting an RBI double in the first frame. Frank Thomas goes deep yet again in what's becoming an almost nightly occurrence. If the Big Hurt keeps this pace up, he should easily beat his personal best for jacks in a season. Keep it up! Joe Crede, who has also been red-hot lately, also belted a homer in the 8th. All for naught though as the Sox strand 12 runners on base.

    Game 2 in Murder City is tomorrow night. Jon Garland looks to push Mike Maroth one game closer to a 20-loss season. Let's get this coaster back on track!
