Totally Biased Coverage EXCLUSIVELY from White Sox Interactive!



Enquiring Sox Fans want to know!



If only Sox Fans knew...
 Last Series vs. Minnesota
  • The final series of the 2001 season, in which the Twins won 2 of 3 in Minneapolis.
  • This is the first meeting of the 2002 season between the divisional rivals (that unbalanced schedule is working wonders, eh?)
  • There are, in total, 19 meetings between the Sox and Twins this year.  Ten will be in Minnesota, nine in Chicago, and this is the lone 4-game series of the season series.
 Totally Biased Sox Notes
  • Holy slumping offense!  The Sox, who once held the best team batting average in the American League, have slumped all the way to 7th in the league with their .263 team BA.
  • What to expect pitching wise?  3 of the 4 Sox starters have actually had some success in Minnesota.  The foursome have a combined 4.25 ERA (42 ER, 89 IP).  Jon Garland has given up no runs in 3 innings,  Mark Buehrle has given up 11 runs in 21 innings,  Todd Ritchie has given up 26 earned runs in 59.2 innings, and Gary Glover has allowed 5 earned runs in 5.1 innings.
  • The Sox, however, have only averaged 4.6 runs per game in Minnesota in the last 2 years (69 runs in 15 games).
  • The Sox are 14-22 on the road this year.
 Know thy Enemy!
  • The Twins have never been swept by the Sox in a 4-game series at Minnesota.  The Twins are the only team the Sox have faced more than 300 times that have yet to be swept by the Sox at home in a 4-game series.
  • After finishing the first half 55-32 (.632), the Twins fell apart in the 2nd half, going 30-45 (.400), the 3rd worst 2nd half performance in the American League.  How can you still not be optimistic about our chances?
  • The Twins are 5th in the American League in batting (.276) and 7th in the American League in ERA (4.33).
  • The Twins have posted a 24-13 record at home, 4th best in the Majors and best in the American League.  I wonder how much that white ceiling helps.
 What to watch for!
  • How much longer can Jerry go with this "Random Lineup of the Day"?
  • When will Rocky Biddle be officially promoted to the closer's role?
  • Can the Sox send the Twins into a 2nd half slump a little premature this year?  Please?  Pretty Please?
  • How many balls with Carlos make interesting in left field against that white ceiling?
