Homerin' On The Rangers!

August 23 vs Texas


Today's temperature:
88
This one was easy! Now if only Jerry would take his own advice and stop messing with HOF'er Frank Thomas. If he's this good at DH, think of how good he'd be in the field."

Short Take: Sox Unleash Yet Another Aerial Assault

    Corpseball? What's that? Elvis wasn't flying in tonight, but the homers were still flying out for the Chicago White Sox tonight in their tilt against the Texas Rangers tonight at US Cellular Field. For the 33,721 in attendance tonight, there was no real need to stick around after the game for fireworks, as the Sox blew the board up 5 times tonight, cruising to a 13-2 rout against the hapless Rangers, whose 8 game winning streak is fast fading into their rear view mirror. The Sox also benefit from Kansas City knocking off the Twins and now hold a full game lead in the tight AL Central race.

    Mark Buehrle continues his second half rampage, shutting down the Rangers normally potent offense en route to his 11th win of the year. The big lefty from St Looie works 6 strong innings, at one point mowing down 10 Rangers in a row. Normally, I'd be all over Jerry Manuel for giving Mark a quick hook, but in this case, I think we can all deal with it. Hopefully mark will be able to take the hill on 4 days rest against the Yankees this week--I think we'd all breathe a little easier with him on the mound in Yankee Stadium rather than Neal Cotts. Mark held the Rangers to 4 hits and one run, while striking out 3 and walking just one. The high point of his outing had to be a 13 pitch at bat against Viagra Man himself Rafael Palmerio, who ran the count full and then fouled off offering after offering before Buehrle reared back and fired strike three right down the pipe. Danny Wright solid in relief, further proving that maybe the bullpen is the "Wright" place for him to be.

    The longball mantra just keeps on working for the Sox, as three big innings against Rangers scrubs Ismael Valdes (former Cub who's almost as worthless and overpaid as Chan Ho Park) and Jay Powell (who makes Buehrle's fastball look like Roger Clemens') do more than get the job done. The Sox struck first in the 3rd inning when Sandy Alomar and Carlos Lee carded singles, and Frank Thomas delivers yet another tape measure blast that brings 'em all home. It was just a preview of things to come in the fourth. Jose Valentin and Joe Crede tally back to back jacks with one out, and then the Sox really go to work. Robbie Alomar doubles. Carlos Lee then smacks a double of his own to bring home Alomar. That sets the stage for another Thomas blast, his 32nd of the year. Magglio Ordonez does his part to fill the bases up again with a single, and Carl Everett follows with a walk moving Mags to second. Brian Daubach, making the most of a rare start, doubles Ordonez home. Six runs on six hits in one inning? We can deal with that. Sox managed to strike once more in the 7th as Carlos Lee blasts a 3 run shot to make the score downright laughable.

    Sox and Rangers meet for the last time this season tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 with Jon Garland duking it out with Jon Thomson. After getting swept out of Texas last weekend, the Sox can look to win the season series with a W tomorrow. Let's do it!
