What is this, amateur hour?

March 31 vs. Cleveland Indians

"These ain't your daddy's White Sox... We're going to keep going after a championship as aggressively as we can."

KW took some heat for claiming the Masset of clubs over the Wasserman of diamonds but this time around, he came up nuts.

Short Take:Sox dig themselves a hole, dig out and then fall back in.

Well, the season that was 2007 has long since returned to the Earth and a new set of roots take hold. It is Buehrle vs. Sabathia, Round 2. These two swarthy men faced off on Opening Day back in 2006. Neither pitcher factored in the decision but both had mediocre outings. History has a way of repeating itself and today was no exception. Both starters were touched for at least five earned runs (seven for Buehrle) and neither one got the W or L.

For Buehrle, the day was extra rough. His first inning looked decent but the wheels totally came off in the second. Three straight singles loaded the bases and after a fielder's choice RBI, the ball left the yard. Buehrle got another out before yielding another homer, a walk a double and single. Buehrle's day was done after only 1.2 IP. Seven runs scored and Buehrle hit the showers with a 37.8 ERA. Masset relieved Buehrle and ended up having an excellent outing. He went through the sixth in an unexpected role giving up only two hits while striking out 4 and walking none. Kudos abound. Logan pitched a scoreless 7th but in the 8th, after the Sox had crawled back into it, Ye Olde Dotel gives up three runs to put the game out of reach.

On the offensive side, the Sox showed some life. Sabathia is known to stifle the Sox at all offensive attempts but this time, the Sox had his number. Thome really got to him with two two-run HRs in his first at bat. Not even the mighty boos of the Cleveland faithful could keep Thome's rockets out of orbit. Pierzynski singled in Dye in the 6th and Sabathia left with a 7-5 lead. The 7th saw the Sox score a couple more courtesy of a Konerko two-run double. The Sox had a golden opportunity in the 8th with the bases loaded and nobody out but were unable to finish the assault. After Dotel put the Sox in the hole, Dye got out his shovel and hit a solo shot. Pierzynski walked and Crede came to the plate as the tying run. Foul out was his fate and the Sox lose, 10-8.

There was some beef the Sox had with the umps over some questionable calls but what can you do? Joke was on them as the Sox took the umps' pants in poker that night. All in, baby!

WSI's Quest For the Final Table Update: Sox were on a draw after Buehrle was dealt trash. Flop looked on the level but the Cleveland river washed them away. Confused? So am I.
