Pitching Nowhere To Be Found

May 19th vs Toronto


Today's temperature:
94
"With Gary Ward gone, Manuel would seem to be the next to go. Perhaps that fueled his tirade today."

Short Take:  The pitching was brutal; not that the offense bothered to show up either.

  • The Blue Jays entered this game having scored the most runs in the majors. They weren’t about to stop now and Danny Wright did little to try to stop them. The Blue Jays came out blazing from the start of the game and would put up a 12 spot in defeating the Sox 12-2. The score pretty much says it all. The Sox weren’t in this game for long. The second batter of the game, Frank Catalanotto, hit a solo home run to give the Jays the lead that the Sox would never overcome.
  • The Blue Jays would actually score in 7 of 9 innings, with the 5th and 9th innings being the only two where the Jays did not plate at least 1 run. The Sox still had a chance until the 7th inning when they allowed 5 runs to all but end the game. Then again with these Sox, a 6-1 lead is probably insurmountable. Every Blue Jays starter had at least 1 hit, and only one started failed to score a run. This was an ugly game to watch by an ugly team to watch.
  • The Sox positives in this game were few and far between. One small positive was Magglio Ordonez. Maggs went 2-3 and scored one of 2 Sox runs before being lifted for a pinch hitter once the blowout was in full effect. The Sox temporarily made it interesting in the 2nd while trailing 2-0. Ordonez singled to right and the next batter, Carlos Lee would go the opposite way for a double to score Ordonez. Brian Daubach would walk. The situation: runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs. The batter: Paul Konerko. You take a guess what happened. If you guessed a double play, you were right unfortunately.
  • Starter Danny Wright would last only 3 innings, giving up 5 runs as he clearly was not on tonight. It could have been worse too as Wright loaded the bases with 0 outs in the 2nd but was able to minimize the damage to only 1 run by inducing a fly ball and then a double play ball to get out of the inning. David Sanders took over and pitched well over 2 and 1/3 inning allowing only 1 run to give the Sox a chance at coming back. But once Rick White came in, the game was over (what usually happens when White enters a game).
  • Jerry Manuel was not around to see the whole game however. In the bottom of the 5th inning Joe Crede led off with a double. Sandy Alomar Jr. would then bunt down the third base line. The ball appeared to be foul but Crede took off to 3rd on contact and Blue Jays third baseman Eric Hinske would pick up the ball right by third base and tag Crede as he slid into third. Third base umpire Angel Hernandez was not able to clearly see the play and gave a look of “I don’t know” asking for help from home plate umpire Randy Marsh. Marsh would rule Crede out (which in fairness was the correct call) but Manuel was upset. He would come out to argue and after going into his ‘chicken peck’ routine would get tossed by Hernandez. At least he stuck up for his player this time.
  • Back to White however. This guy has been awful this year. In his latest disaster, White allowed 5 runs over only 1 and 2/3 innings in relief. That leaves his ERA at 9.00! Meanwhile, Gary Glover pitched the final 2 innings and allowed 1 run. Not spectacular but that leaves his ERA at 4.12. In other words, a hell of a lot better than Rick White
  • The Sox will look to avoid embarrassment tomorrow (and hey, maybe even win a game) when Bartolo Colon faces Doug Davis. Colon has won his last two starts, so let’s hope he can keep it up. But with the way the Blue Jays are hitting right now, it certainly won’t be easy.

Tinkerer Update:
  Same lineup as yesterday. Ordonez in center, Daubach in right but Alomar behind the plate.
