Pre-Game Report

JERRY'S HEAD

Robin Ventura returns to the South Side, over 43,000 fans jam into Comiskey Park, and Danny Wright ruins the entire evening before the Sox take even one swing of the bat.  The Sox fall behind six runs in the top of the first inning, and lurch to a pathetic 10-6 defeat to the New York Yankees.

Trust me, it was far worse than the final score.

Start with the injuries.  Jose Valentin twisted an ankle chasing a ball in foul territory.  He was pulled in the third inning and is now day to day.  Ken Lofton injured his knee crashing into the padded wall in centerfield, chasing another of those rockets the Sox pitching staff lobbed in.  Thankfully, he's expected to play in spite of his oowie.

As it has been most of the month, the offense sputtered.  Though they managed eleven hits, they also struck out six times, and grounded into two double-plays. 

Magglio Ordonez looked lost, 0 for 3 with two strikeouts.  To his credit, he showed enough patience to earn two walks.  Besides those two double-play grounders, Paul Konerko was 0 for 4 with a strikeout.

Hey guys, it's the Yankees, okay?  They're full of crap same as any other team.  They're simply paid better.  Stop acting in awe of them like you were teenage girls trying to get an autograph from Derek Jeter!

Dan Wright was brutal.  Five hits and two walks led to six earned runs.  Ten Yankees came to the plate!  He fed his gopher in the second, and completely melted in the fifth.  Eight runs on eight hits, including two dingers, his six strikeouts stand as testament to the futility of worshipping that stat in a vacuum.  There are some accomplishments ESPN simply can't fit on a highlight reel.

The Sox scored two in the eighth and two in the ninth, the latter occurring even as the ballpark emptied of fans.  If only the Sox could face Sterling Hitchcock for nine innings, maybe we would have a chance.

Either that, or start playing the Yankees like you mean to win from the very start.
