Thanks for the Memories

September 25th at Cleveland Indians


How was the trophy defended today?
It wasn't

Short Take: Sox open series at Cleveland with lopsided loss as Twins beat Royals to eliminate the Good Guys from the playoffs.

The Sox faint 2006 playoff hopes were barely alive as they entered play tonight. But the team that scored 11 runs yesterday and 12 on Saturday could only manage one run and five hits tonight as they went down to defeat at the hands of the Cleveland Indians 14-1.

The first inning was the only bright spot in this game from a Sox fan’s perspective. Scott Podsednik singled, Tadahito Iguchi walked, and Jermaine Dye singled to load the bases for Jim Thome. His sacrifice fly scored Pods, but as happened way too often this season, the dreaded double play jumped up and bit us, as Paul Konerko hit into one to end the inning. And that was the only run the Sox would score this night. The Tribe came back with four runs in the second, and the score stayed at 4-1 until the fifth, when Cleveland scored twice more to make it 6-1. The Tribe broke the game open in the sixth, scoring eight runs on six hits, including a grand slam by Casey Blake to make it 14-1. And that’s how the game ended. A short time later, the Sox season also effectively ended when the Minnesota Twins defeated the Kansas City Royals, thus knocking the Sox out of playoff contention.

When I sat down to write this TBGR, I had absolutely no idea what I could possibly say that was positive. Then I noticed that there was already a TBGR in my file for September 25, and I realized that I had also written the TBGR for September 25, 2005. So I reread it to refresh my memory. Needless to say, that TBGR was very different from this one! But it reminded me of how happy I was—how happy we all were!—as last year’s season wound down and we moved into the playoffs, and that made it easier to write this one. So now all we can do is watch as they play out the string. But then we'll move on, taking with us happy memories of 2005 and a lot to look forward to in 2007—and beyond!

Tomorrow, the Sox tee it up again in Cleveland. Game time 6:05 Central. Let’s see our Sox end this series on a high note and then go to Minnesota to slap around the Twins. It’s never too late to get the swagger back! GO SOX!!!!!
