Now THAT's What We're Talkin' 'Bout!!

August 17 at Oakland Athletics

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

KW's Hole Cards:
Four of a Kind and Aces Wild


Short Take: Solid team effort puts the hurt on the A's. Amazing what a little run support will do.

This was a good one--if you’re a Sox fan!--from start to finish. Gio Gonzalez looked shaky from the start. If Cabrera and AJ had shown a tad more patience, the Sox probably could’ve touched him up in the first. But alas! they had to wait until the second. Two straight walks to Jim Thome and Paul Konerko set the table for Ken Griffey Jr. who JUST MISSED a three-run blast. One down, but Thome went to third on the deep flyout, and a wild pitch brought him home with the first Sox run. Moments later, Juan Uribe homered, bringing home Paulie, and it was 3-0. The A’s went down in order for the second time, and after two, it was 3-0 Good Guys.

Didn’t stay that way for long, though. Top of three, AJ singled and came home on a Carlos Quentin home run. Jermaine Dye followed with a homer of his own, and it was 6-0 through three. Javy Vazquez continued his masterful performance and the Sox added two more in the fourth, which would have turned this into a laugher if the team were playing anywhere else (except possibly Minnesota). But given the history, what’s an eight-run lead?

As it turned out, it was seven more than we needed. However, the Sox plated five more runs in the seventh. At least, I think they did, but those of us watching on MLB.TV and getting the Oakland feed cannot really be certain because instead of actual old-fashioned baseball, we saw this: ****We interrupt the seventh inning to bring you the “Forget About the Game/Let’s Listen to Dave Henderson Drone On-and-On About All Things Dave Henderson" Lovefest.**** Wow! Okay, sure, it was his jersey day or somesuch, but if the A’s announcers really felt the need to do a tribute to the guy who may not have even been the greatest Henderson to play in Oakland (opinions are no doubt divided there), did they really have to show him in the announcers’ booth pretty much nonstop? Even Alexei Ramirez’s granny didn’t shut these guys up. It took a third out to do it.

But I digress. Javy looked tremendous and the South Side Hit Men got it done again. Now the Sox have Seattle coming in, fresh from their less-than-stellar appearance in Minnesota. Hey, Mariners! Chicago is a great place to party! Why not go out tomorrow afternoon and enjoy the lakefront? So you’re late for batting practice, so what? Have a terrific time! Tomorrow’s game: Mariners at Sox, Buehrle vs. Washburn at 7:11 pm. Central.
