Land of 10,000 Horrors

July 28 @ Dump Dome Snack Cakes


KW's Daily Special:
Nothing
Playing at the Dump Dome sends its visitors home on an empty stomach.

Short Take:The Sox added another sequel to the large library of horror stories that have happened at the Dump Dome.

It has become the most predictable of horror film series. Whenever our Sox travel to the Land of 10,000 Losers, something always seems to happen that does them in. When the horrors hit even Mr. Perfect Mark Buehrle, you know there is some sort of intervention coming from the firey place called Hell to help out the Dump Dome Twinkies. Tonight's game was no different. Your final: Dump Dome 5, Sox 3. That's right...Our Sox lost again to a building!

Believe it or not, Buehrle was walking on air! He never thought he could feel so free! Flying away on a ball hit by Dye. What could it be? A short-lived one-run lead!

Short-lived, because the Dump Dome turned against us for the millionth time. After Buehrle retired his 44th and 45th consecutive batters in the last of the 6th, which is a major league record, the air he was walking on was ripped from under him. Alexi Casilla was issued a free pass, advanced on a single by Denard Span, and came home on a ground rule double, which should have been caught by Scott Podsednik to end the inning. Instead, we were headed to the final 1/3 of the game knotted up at 1.

Like many horror films, the most painful moments are held until later on. Buehrle hit Michael Cuddyer to start off the seventh. It truly would've been better had he been hit in the noggin, but I digress! The newest Sox killer Joe Crede hit a seeing-eye single past a poorly positioned Chris Getz, who cut left instead of right on the infield, which allowed Cuddyer an extra base. That opened the floodgates for a big crooked number to go on the board. Brendan Harris knocked in a Dump Dome patented dink single, which plated Cuddyer. The same type of junk came off of Nick Punto's bat, scoring both Crede and Harris. When Octavio Dotel came in, he walked the first two batters he faced (Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau), plating another run. That would be all the Dump Dome Snack Cakes needed tonight. During the inning, Hawk Harrelson even admit that he wished he was able to curse right then. Trust me, I more than made up for Harrelson's inability from my front room! At least my television is still in good shape.

We scored a pair of inconsequential runs in the top of the 9th, but it really didn't matter. Do we really think we have a chance to win when the Dump Dome is the gift that keeps on giving for the Snack Cakes? The Snackies should be 30 games back of us. Instead, they're now tied with us in the standings thanks to the building they play in. Good luck next year when you're in a real ballpark, Snack Cakes! You won't be getting all of these gifts and will more than likely be Kansas City Royal-bad as a result! And then, everyone on the south side of Chicago will tell you we told you so when you deny the fact that you only are winning games due to playing in the Dump Dome.

We only have four more games left at that trash heap. Hopefully tomorrow night won't be another horror story. Jose Contreras takes the mound against struggling Francisco Liriano. Same time, same crappy place, same channel.

Critic's Corner:
4...That's the countdown on the number of games we have left in the Dump Dome.

Sox Clubhouse "Pick to Click" Winner

Mark Buehrle

Set a major league record by retiring his 45th straight batter. Predictably, the House of Horrors turned against his entire team.
