Pierror strikes again

June 8 vs. Seattle


Levels Finished:

The Sox got torpedoed on the last level. Another winnable game gets away.

Short Take: Juan Pierre butchers a routine fly, opening the door for the Mariners to beat the Sox in 10 innings.

Why is Juan Pierre still on the White Sox roster? Seriously, what does he do well? He can't hit. He has no power. He has a noodle for an arm. He can't field. He can't even steal bases anymore. In other words, he's a zero-tool player.

But yet Ozzie Guillen trots him out there every damn day, batting leadoff and playing left field. It's an affront to Sox fans everywhere that Pierre gets more plate appearances than anybody else on this team. Guillen is trading victories for the privilege of having a mascot for his bankrupt offensive philosophy standing in left field night after night.

Pierre cost the Sox yet another ballgame Wednesday, as the Mariners got out of town with a 7-4 win in 10 innings. With the score tied 4-4 in the top of the 10th, Seattle's Justin Smoak led off with a high, lazy pop to left field. The ball was up there forever. Sox third baseman Brent Morel ran out into left field. He kept going and going, about halfway out to the damn bullpen. Pierror never called him off, I guess. I don't know what the hell was going on out there, but Pierre made a half-hearted dive toward the ball at the last second as Morel veered off. Naturally, Pierror missed it and Smoak was credited with a bloop double. That's a travesty. Should have been E-7.

The misplay rattled Sox closer Sergio Santos (2-2), who struggled through a scoreless ninth and was inexplicably sent out to start the 10th inning. Santos promptly walked Adam Kennedy on four pitches and gave up a two-run double to Miguel Olivo. 6-4 Seattle. Game over. The Mariners tacked on another run for good measure. The Sox went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 10th.

The loss is especially frustrating given that both the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers lost Wednesday. The Sox could have gained ground, but no. Pierror threw another game away. But don't worry. I'm sure he'll be leading off and playing left field again tomorrow. He's never accountable for anything.

The Sox rallied late to get this game to extra innings, too. Carlos Quentin hit his second home run of the night, a two-run blast, to tie the score at 4-4 in the bottom of the eighth. Quentin now has 17 home runs and 45 RBIs on the season. That, of course, is in direct contrast to Pierror, who went 0-for-5 and failed to set the table as usual from his customary leadoff spot.

What could have been an inspirational, come-from-behind victory was pissed away due to total incompetence in left field. Given the Sox position in the standings, we can't afford this kind of crap any longer.

Go get 'em tomorrow, I guess. The Sox are now a mediocre 3-3 on this 10-game homestand. Oakland comes to town Thursday night to start a four-game series. Mark Buehrle (5-4, 3.95 ERA) is on the hill for the Sox. He'll be opposed by Oakland ace right-hander Trevor Cahill (6-3, 2.65 ERA). Game time is 7:10, and you can watch Juan Pierre suck again on Comcast SportsNet.

Ozzio's Game Rant:
Shut up, JB98. Juan Pierre is a professional. He will battle. He will find a way.
