The Slide Continues

August 22 at New York


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Rotten Big Apples
Abreu connects but everything else falters

Short Take:   The Bronx is up and the Sox are down

August is often referred to as the "dog days of August." And boy, have the White Sox played like dogs this month.

The Sox 4-3 loss to the Yankees tonight dropped them to 6-13 on the month.  

It's clear that this team isn't going anywhere this season and with the way they've played of late, it certainly looks like everyone just wants to go home.

Even Hawk seems resigned of late.

One of the big plays of the night was in the 6th when Conor Gillaspie was thrown out at the plate to end the inning.

Normally, it would be the sort of play where you'd wonder why in God's name third base coach Joe McEwing would try having Conor Gillaspie of all people score from second on a blooper to left. He was out by ten feet, but there's a way around that this year.

To quote Allan Swann from "My Favorite Year," "There's out and then there's OUT."

Gillaspie appeared to be out but not OUT because Yankee catcher Francisco Cervelli was blocking the plate without the ball. Meaning that he should be safe.

Alas, MLB's implementation of that rule is as flimsy and poor as the preceding paragraphs of this post.

The only consistent about the way the rule has been implemented is that it always screws the Sox.

That usually triggers a Hawk meltdown, but even he seemed resigned to it.

The fact of the matter is the game was over before then. The Sox scored three on a Jose Abreu homer in the first and then the offense took the rest of the night off. It was just a question of when John Danks and the Sox bullpen would give up the lead.

Well, Danks gave up the lead in the 5th when Brett Gardner scored the tying run. And to the bullpen's credit, they waited until the bottom of the 9th (with two outs no less!) to give up the go ahead run.

We're most certainly in the dog days.

WSI's
The Futures Market:
 Hold. The team is tired and just playing out the string, but Abreu's homer gives reasons for optimism.
