Short Take: Lucky Thirteen For Sox In Romp

    Yankee Stadium can be an intimidating place. The monuments in center field. Steinbrenner scowling down from his glass-enclosed box. 40,000 plus angry beer-sotten New Yorkers heckling a visiting player's every breath. And tonight, 300 game winner Roger Clemens staring down from the mound, with a scowl showing below his low-slung hat. Know what? None of that mattered to the White Sox tonight! The monuments in center were probably cowering in fear and ducking for cover at the barrage of Sox home runs heading their way! Most of the fans were headed to the exits by the 6th inning--ditto for Clemens heading to the showers. Sox throttle the AL East leaders 13-2, taking the first of a 3 game set that's going to prove if they can hang with the best of the best.

    Number of Cy Youngs won by Roger Clemens? Six. Number won by Estaban Loaiza? None. But that could change after yet another solid outing tonight--hope the Cy Young voters were watching! E Lo works 7 innings and surrenders just one single. Estaban also keeps pace with the AL strikeout leaders, fanning nine, and only allowing 3 walks. Performances like this clearly show why Loaiza was the biggest offseason find in baseball this season! The guy no one wanted seems to have found a home on the South Side, let's hope Sox management has the common sense to pick up his option and bring him back for more next season. Scott Schoeneweis and Tom Gordon each work an inning in relief. Schoeneweis gives up 2 runs, but with a lead as big as we had, I'm willing to let that slide. A 3-2 game would have been a different story, of course.

    For the second time in 3 games, the Sox win 13-2. Tonight's rout is brought to you courtesy of some of the usual suspects, as well as power displays by some faces that have been mired in slumps lately. It's starting to seem like Frank Thomas is homering in just about every at bat--and while that's an exaggeration, he has gone yard in 6 of his last 8 games. The Big Hurt sends an offering from the Rocket high off the foul pole in left field for his 8th career grand slam to crack the game open as part of a 6-run 5th inning. One of the runs scored on that blast was Miguel Olivo, who had just ripped an RBI triple (Olivo? RBI? same sentence?) to bring home Joe Crede. Is Paul Konerko getting hot again? His recent struggles were forgotten with a 4 RBI night that featured 2 home runs, a double, and one dumb baserunning move, seemingly obligatory for this club. Let's not forget Magglio Ordonez, who also blasted 2 home runs and continues to make a case for being AL MVP.

    Game 2 of the rumble in the Bronx is tomorrow night. In a literal battle of the heavyweights, Bartolo Colon faces David Wells. If anyone catches Steinbrenner looking at Colon twice, remind him about the tampering rule.
