WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Another Unpleasant Valley Sunday

April 15 at Cleveland Indians

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Rancid pork chops
Self-explanatory

Short Take: Will somebody please tell the White Sox they’re supposed to WIN one-hitters?

Nice that the Indians are giving vouchers to all the spectators who actually showed up for this game. After all, they DID show up, which is more than the Sox did. Perhaps our marketing department should consider giving vouchers to all the Sox fans who sat through this abysmal mess. Tribe takes the series with a 2-1 victory.

That’s right; I’m crabby. Who wouldn’t be? Three errors??? And I lost track of how many walks. Let’s just say, too many! Anyway, let’s take a look at the…the…well, I guess you’d call it a “game.” This will be as quick as humanly possible.

Sox actually got a hit in the first, but it went for naught. Then Cleveland got their first—and ONLY—hit, a double by that Sizemore pest. He went to third on a passed ball to Molina and scored on a ground-out by Trot Nixon. Travis Hafner walked, and the next batter, Ryan Garko, was safe on the first of Joe Crede’s uncharacteristic two errors. But Jose Contreras got the next two guys. Could have been a lot worse. After one, Tribe 1, Good guys 0.

Nothing much happened the next few innings, but then in the bottom of the fourth, Casey Blake walked, and what should have been a routine grounder by J. Peralta turned into first and third with nobody out when Crede booted another one. Then Jose apparently decided it was his turn to help out the Tribe. After striking out Rouse, he walked Shoppach to load the bases and then walked Sizemore, forcing in the second run. THEN he gets the next two guys out. After four, Tribe 2, Sox 0.

In the fifth, Sabathia struck out the side. Cleveland in turn went three up, three down in the bottom of the frame, then Pablo Ozuna gave us reason to hope, with a scratch hit. A walk by Paulie, a single by JD, and lo and behold! we were on the board. Tribe 2, Sox 1.

Unfortunately, that’s how it ended. Hard to find bright spots, but there were a couple. Our bullpen continues to excel, and Pablo Ozuna and JD, at least, showed up ready to play. Oh, yeah. Last time I looked, it was still April.

Back to the Grind Update:
The only thing that got ground today were Sox fans' nerves.
