Think Of Your Own Damn Title

September 11 vs Cleveland

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
English Dogs
From England

Short Take: I'd rather be in Liverpool with Randy Travis


The Misery of 2007 continued last night in Chicago, as the Sox went down 3-8 to the Indians.

Perhaps such a result should come as no surprise, what with the Palehose owning a share in the Majors' worst record, and the resurgent ALC-leading Indians seeming certain to waltz into the post-season.

Once again, the game was marked by woefully inconsistent pitching from the Sox, who ended up using five pitchers in an all-too-familiar-in-2007 Loss.

The offense could not be said to have had an exactly stellar night, apart maybe from Juan Oo-ree-bay, who played like a mensch, managing to hit two homers off Paul Byrd, and bring home all of the Sox' runs.

Byrd continues to be Poison for the Palehose, taking his career mark against us to 8-2, and 4-0 at USCF. Some of you may remember that he shut us out only ten days ago in Cleveland, so surely it is time that Measures Were Taken to ensure that he cannot pitch against us?

Getting back to Sox players, Jim Thome is still poised on 498 career HRs - tantalisingly close to the 500 Club - having 'failed to trouble the scorers' last night in what was a sucky night's work for him. He left three men on base, and couldn't get even the one hit. Perhaps he has contracted the traditional Cubs' mentality of Mailing It In from Sept 1st onwards?

Sox pitchers were, once again, made to look like schmucks.

Danks, starting for the first time after a ten-day lay-off, had a perfect first inning, but it All Went Horribly Wrong from there on out. Perhaps the ten days gave his mojo chance to evaporate, or perhaps he just had a Bad Day at the Office.

Whatever the cause, he gave up a lead-off homer in the second, and issued 4 walks in the third before #13 decided to yank him and (whisper it quietly) resort to The Bullpen.

Four relievers came to the mound last night, and none looked like they would have made the grade in the '05 team.

The two Rookies, Broadway & Phillips (the only Sox pitcher not to give up any runs, even though he had to pitch 2.1 innings), actually pitched OK, and looked like they may be able to have some kind of Future at this level - but their more-experienced team-mates left Sox fans thinking "oy vey - not again!".

Lanky lefty former Mariner Matt Thornton gave up two hits, two walks and two runs whilst failing to record even one out, and Mike MacDougal also walked-in a run on another of this season's bullpen's patented 'Gascan!' evenings.

That said, it could have been even worse - the Jndians left 12 men stranded, and the Sox did manage to turn one DP to get out of a bases-loaded snafu.

The evening might lead you to believe that some of the despairing attitude of some Sox fans has worked its way into the Clubhouse and infected the team, and that some of the players are now also thinking "just let this frikkin' Season end already", and with nothing left to play for now but Pride, you might be excused for thinking that too.

Tomorrow night, it's the last game of this series against Cleveland, and after that the Angels are coming to town - so it is to be hoped that the team can pick itself up, dust itself down ,and Grow A Pair.

With Ozzie having just been given a four-year contract extension, now would be the perfect time for him to start to really earn his corn, before many more Sox fans are reduced to thinking " no mas!".

Sure, we ain't actually gonna win anything this year, but it would be nice to end the season without the Worst Record in Baseball.

White Sox, it's over to you....
