Argonauts Defeat the Sox, 14-0

April 24 vs. Toronto

Short Take:   An epic slaughter, even by CFL standards.

It may go down as one of the most lopsided defeats of the decade, as the Toronto Blue Jays destroyed the White Sox last night by a score of 14-0. The game was a disaster from start to finish, highlighted by The Cuban Missile’s inability to catch or throw the baseball. “Slippery hands” Alexei botched two routine double plays which caused Gavin Floyd to extend himself to 75 pitches thrown through three innings pitched. The Sox offense sputtered, collecting only six hits on the night, with youngsters BA and Getz chipping in two a piece. The Sox left a pathetic 13 runners on base and went 1-for-8 with RISP.

The Blue Jays steam-rolled over Sox pitching. Gavin Floyd gave up nine hits and six runs through 4.1 innings. Jack Egbert was roughed up for seven hits and six runs through 1.2 innings, buying him a ticket back to Charlotte after the game. Clayton Richard added another two runs in three innings of mop-up duty. Every starter in the Toronto lineup had a hit except for Lyle Overbay; five of the starters had three hits.

Not much needs to be said about this atrocious display of baseball by the Sox, but one has to wonder how it compares to some of the all-time worst defeats of this decade by the Good Guys:

May 10, 2002 - Anaheim d. Sox, 19-0 @ Anaheim: “It’s Time.” Yeah, it’s time alright. Time to back up the garbage truck. The Sox struggled all night, with only three hits off Angels pitching. The starter for the Angels this night? Would you believe Scott Schoeneweis? Seven innings of three-hit, shutout baseball. Nobody knew this night that the Angels would go on to win the World Series in ‘02, but the team the Sox put on the field looked a hell of a lot farther away than three years from a Series win of their own. Kenny Lofton and Ray Durham batted 1-2 in the lineup, going 0-for-6. Both guys would be shipped out of town at the deadline. Royce Clayton was 0-for-3. He’d be run out of town before the end of the summer too. Sandy Alomar was 0-for-3, and he’d be another trade deadline casualty. The dagger of the entire evening? Julio Ramirez. Who? Recall, he‘s the bum who came in for the Sox 2001 season to replace Chris Singleton in CF and wrecked all kinds of havoc on the lineup, screwing both Singleton and Jose Valentin in the process. The Sox released him and his .081 average after 22 games. The 2002 Angels picked him up, and on this night he would end up going 2-for-3 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored.

July 6, 2007 - A day-night doubleheader at home vs. the Twins: Game 1, Twins d. Sox 20-14; Game 2, Twins d. Sox 12-0. This could have been one of the worst single days of White Sox baseball in 20 years. The first game was actually less of a contest than the final score indicates, as the Twins let the Sox comeback against their mop-up/garbage time bullpen guys. Lets recap some Sox pitching lines for this dark day in history: Jon Garland: 3.1 IP, 11 H, 12 R, 3 BB. Nick Masset: 3.1 IP, 8 H, 6 Runs, 1 BB. Dewon Day: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 BB. Ryan Bukvich: 1.2 IP, 2 BB. Gavin Floyd: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 4 BB. Boone Logan: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 2 BB. Matt Thornton: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB.

There were quite a few other stinkers in 2007. The Sox lost to the Yankees in the Bronx 16-3 on July 31, as Jose Contreras gave up seven runs through 2.2 IP before Charlie Haeger came in to throw gasoline on the fire. And then there was the nationally televised Saturday afternoon loss at Fenway to the eventual World Champs by a score of 11-2 on July 21, which punched Dewon Day’s ticket out of town.

The Sox will try to come back to win the next two in this series, if the weather cooperates. Mark Buehrle is scheduled to take the mound tonight against the Blue Jays (and hopefully not the Argonauts). Go Sox!
