PSYCHIC
Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

For the last forty years or so, most of the American League has done a remarkably fine job ignoring the expansion franchise that Gene Autry stuck along a freeway in Southern California.  Our White Sox were no exception.

However, the baseball division of Disney Enterprises has become a bit uppity of late, winning four straight on our Sox, and making our guys look bad in the process.  Saturday night at Comiskey, the Sox took care of business in a big way, pounding the Angels in a most unholy fashion, 10-4 the final.

Take that, Mickey Mouse!

The mighty Sox offense has been stalled for over a week, so it put at ease the stomach linings of fretful Sox Fans from coast to coast when the Sox wasted no time scoring in this game.  Kenny Lofton drew a walk, stole second, and advanced to third on a groundout.  He reached base 3 of 5 times at the plate--a very good sign for the future.  Paul Konerko singled home Lofton, and Frank Thomas brought Paulie Walnuts home, touching all four corners for the first of his two homeruns on the night. 

3-0 Sox, and we're off to the races!

To his credit, starter Gary Glover didn't disappoint.  Sure, he wasn't going to overpower anybody, but he completed five full innings--no small feat for Sox pitching this side of Mark Buehrle and Todd Ritchie.  The trouble he overcame in the fifth (three runs on four hits) was the biggest challenge the Haloes managed all night.  Good for him to get through it by himself.

Unlike recent games, the Sox offense kept pouring it on.  Paul Konerko and Jose Valentin each stroked solo homeruns in the sixth, pumping up the lead to 6-3. 

Then in the seventh, the Sox pounded the Angels in a way that perhaps they hadn't expected, the sort of way that says, "Screw you and the horse you rode in on!"  Four more runs scored on three hits, highlighted by a two-run triple by Jose Valentin, stroked so hard, even Paul Konerko could score from first base!

Kelly Wunsch returned, Rocky Biddle was impressive, and Antonio Osuna didn't scare us too much, either.  But there is more that's good, too, Sox Fans!

Jerry Manuel really let his hair down, fielding a line up that featured a novel (for him) strategic concept:  batting his most-important defensive player, the catcher, in the ninth spot.  Mark Johnson rewarded Manuel's managerial acumen with a hit, a walk, and a run scored.  Tony Graffannino sure looked good with his .328 batting average sitting there in the #8 slot, too.  He started at shortstop.

Is the worm turning in Jerry Manuel's thinking about the everyday line up? Tune in tomorrow, Sox Fans.  It's the rubber game in this series.
