Timely hitting--Not!

April 14 vs. Baltimore.  

Short take:  Wright doesn't have it, and nobody else does either.

Could our White Sox have won Sunday's game at Comiskey?  Of course they could, if starter Danny Wright could find the plate. In spite of Wright's troubles, they still could have won if the mighty Sox offense hadn't taken the Sabbath off.  And though it hardly made a difference in the outcome, there were plenty of Sox Fans cheesed off at the moron who tossed back Jay Gibbons' homerun ball at the third.

Listen you idiot, there is a perfectly good minor league ballpark just eight miles from here where you can play the fool with impunity.  In fact, you'll even draw applause from the other idiots in attendance!  Sox Fans don't throw back homerun balls!  We lost 9-4 and your behavior counts amongst the worst of the lowlights.

What are the chances this guy owns a computer?   Double or nothing says he doesn't know how to turn in on, either. 

Danny Wright was just brutal.  He spotted the Orioles a lead in the first inning allowing two walks and a single.  Our valiant Sox bailed him out in the bottom of the frame.  Kenny Lofton started things (of course) with a leadoff triple.  Magglio Ordonez and Paul Konerko eached picked up rbi hits and Wright had the lead 2-1.  This is some exciting baseball the Sox are playing!

So how does Wright handle his good fortune?  He walks the leadoff man!  Baltimore took all the charity he offered, scoring three runs, and the game was essentially over.

Wright never made it out of the third inning, replaced by Lorenzo Barcelo for the next four innings.  The game took on the distinct look of a spring training exhibition as Barcelo searched his arm for something that might approach what a big leaguer with multiple arm surgeries might be expected to throw.  Four runs and six hits later, Barcelo, Nardi Contreras, and Jerry Manuel are still searching.  Wright couldn't have done much worse.

Meanwhile Sox hitters couldn't get another timely hit.  The entire tale can be told by two double-plays, eight men left on base, and an 0 for 9 performance by Ray Durham and Frank Thomas, batting #2 and #3 respectively.

If you're looking for a silver lining to this mess, consider decent outing by Mike Porzio and Damaso Marte, who combined to pitch three hitless innings.  By then the outcome was long decided.

Monday afternoon is the finale.  Jon Garland will be looking for something to throw besides his fastball.

Paul Konerko

Breaks out of slump with 3 for 4 performance, including a double!  His rbi double in the first inning is as close to a key hit as the Sox managed all day.
