WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Ramirez, Abreu rattle the Diamondbacks

May 9th vs. Diamondbacks


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Las buenas cosechas
The Cuban connection comes thru in a big way

Short Take:   Alexei's slam and five more runs from the Sox offense defangs the D-backs

It's been a long, cold and miserable couple of months in Chicago but the weather is finally starting to heat up. Fortunately, the White Sox offense has been hot for awhile now and it showed no signs of cooling down in tonight's 9-3 win over Arizona.

Well, it didn't show signs of cooling down after the fourth at least. It didn't show up until then. Maybe it was stuck in traffic, traffic is bad on Fridays this time of year too 

But when it showed up, man, did it show up.

It started with a double from Alejandro De Aza, who would come around to score on a single by Gordon Beckham on what was quite possibly one of the ugliest slides in baseball history. Connor Gillaspie and Jose Abreu singled to bring around Beckham. Dayan Viciedo added another single to load the bases with Alexei Ramirez at the plate.

Alexei hit 4 grand slams in his rookie season, he hit his fifth the next April and hadn't hit one since. Well, until tonight.

The slam pretty much ended the game, but the Sox offense evidently felt bad about showing up late so they kept on going. They added another run on a single by De Aza later in the fourth and homers by Jose Abreu and Tyler Flowers.

I want to talk to you about the homer by Abreu though, his 13th.

There are homers, there are shots, there are even moon shots. And then there's whatever adjective you would like to apply to Abreu's homer in the 7th.

I am going to go with "Gargantuanormus." Or maybe just "far."

The estimated distance was 442 feet. I must note that this distance is estimated, because honestly if they said that ball landed in Kentucky, it wouldn't seem totally unreasonable.

The Futures Market:
 Buy! The weather's heating up and so is the Sox offense, if the Sox can get healthy and add some pitching...this could be a fun summer
