Score One For Chief Wahoo

August 31st at Cleveland Indians

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Cat Hairball
Our bullpen produces vomiting tendencies.

Short Take:Our Sox' bullpen can't even hold the nice 5-2 lead they walked into the 8th inning with in an 8-5 loss at Jacobs Field tonight.

I'll be right upfront with you. I did not watch a single pitch of this one. I came home about three-and-a-half hours later than I usually do from work, trying to finish setting up my classroom for when the students return from Summer Break on Tuesday, and I was dead tired, so, I took a long, three-hour nap, and the game was played. Frankly, I'm glad I took that nap, as our bullpen found another way to stink it up (Mike MacDougal especially...I know, what a shock!), losing 8-5 in Cleveland after Mark Buehrle handed over a 5-2 lead going to the bottom of the 8th inning.

No scoring happened until the fifth and sixth innings, where our beloved combined to score five runs: Danny Richar and Jerry Owens scoring in the fifth and Darin Erstad, Juan Uribe, and Richar again scored in the sixth.

What is a comfortable lead for every other MLB team couldn't be held by our Palehose (once again, what a shock!). Buehrle allowed a couple of runs in the sixth as well, giving a 3-run lead to the bullpen with 1.5 total innings left to play, which found a millionth way of blowing it. Ehren Wasserman, Mike Myers, and Mike MacDougal (tonight's Loser with a capital L) gave up one, two, and three runs respectively to close out the scoring for the game.

The bottom of the nineth wasn't needed in this one, as you can see. It rarely is needed when our Sox are on the road, afterall. I guess our Sox have a pact going with the opposing teams' hourly wage workers to decrease payroll by decreasing their time needed to work. Will our Sox make it 3 wins in their last 18 games? Tune in Saturday night at 6:05 to WGN for the answer to this question. Javier Vazquez towes the rubber against Paul Byrd.
