You Just Have To Tip Your Cap

June 26 vs. N.Y. Mets


Today's Game Rating:
0 STARS
Unwatchable. That is all.

Short Take: Shaun Marcum had not won a game all season until he pitched against the woeful White Sox.

New York Mets right-hander Shaun Marcum entered Wednesday's game at U.S. Cellular Field with an 0-9 record and a 5.76 ERA. No matter. The pathetic White Sox offense is always the cure for whatever ails a struggling starting pitcher.

Using an apparently baffling array of 86 mph fastballs and assorted offspeed crap, Marcum (1-9) fired eight shutout innings in New York's 3-0 victory over the scuffling Sox. He allowed just four hits. He struck out two and walked two. The Sox had just two baserunners in scoring position the whole game. Only once did a Sox runner reach third base against The Great Marcum. Embarrassing.

Of course, no Sox game is complete without asinine defensive mistakes. The Mets scored all three of their runs in the fifth inning, two because Sox shorstop Alexei Ramirez can't catch a ground ball. Ramirez has 13 errors already this season after committing just 12 all of last year. New York scored a third run on an infield single that bounced off third baseman Brent Morel's glove.

Pity poor John Danks (1-5). The left-hander was solid. He worked 7.1 innings, allowing just one earned run on seven hits. He struck out seven and walked none. That's good enough to win if you have a real team behind you. Alas, Danks suffered from no offensive support and crap defense and took the loss.

Mercifully, the Sox don't play Thursday, giving us all a respite from this agony. They open a four-game weekend series with a doubleheader Friday against the Cleveland Indians. The action begins at 4 p.m. Hector Santiago (3-5, 3.03) will pitch against Trevor Bauer (1-2, 2.76 ERA) in the first game. Jose Quintana (3-2, 3.83 ERA) has the nightcap. He'll be opposed by Carlos Carrasco (0-3, 7.78 ERA). Both games will air on Comcast SportsNet if you can still bear to watch this excrement.

WSI's
Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
I'll tell you what, Stone Pony, the No. 1 rule is catch the baseball. We are not catching the baseball, and that's why we're losing. You know who always caught the baseball? YAZ!
