Guess Blonds Do Have More Fun

August 24 vs. Tampa Bay Rays

"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:
A good bluff works every time.


Short Take: Just AJ being AJ.

Wow, talk about your schizoid games! This one was one for the books, folks. But when the smoke cleared, the Good Guys came out on top, 6-5. Be nice if the LAA of A could dump those damn Twinkies.

First inning: Mark Buehrle looked sharp against the first two batters, but when Nick Swisher booted out #3 and the next batter went yard, it was one of those “here we go again!” moments that Sox fans have come to know so well. The Sox got their first two hitters aboard in the bottom of the frame, but it was all for naught as TCQ grounded into a double play and Jermaine Dye popped out. End of one, Rays 2, Sox zip.

Tampa added another run in the top of the second, making the score 3-0, and that’s where it stayed until the bottom of the fourth, when the Sox took the lead behind two 2-run homers from Quentin and Thome. End of four, Sox led 4-3. Stayed that way until the top of the sixth when an error by Orlando Cabrera allowed the Rays to pull even. Tampa took the lead in the top of the seventh. They kept the lead until the bottom of the ninth when pinch-hitter Paul Konerko singled home Brian Anderson to tie the game. The Sox just couldn’t push across that lead run, though, so we’ll have an extra inning ballgame today.

Top of 10. Bad Bobby got the job done. And then came the bottom of the inning. AJ Pierzynski singled to center. Carlos Quentin flied out, advancing AJ to second. And here’s where it got weird: AJ was apparently out, but the umpire ruled that he was safe on an error by the Tampa third baseman. After much argument, the umpire’s ruling stood and instead of a runner on first and two outs, the Sox had first and third and one out. So they intentionally walked Jim Thome and then, for whatever reason, the Rays decided to go with five infielders and two outfielders to face Alexei Ramirez. And just for fun, they had the two outfielders play shallow. Whoops! Alexei singled. Game OVAH! So worst case, we’ll remain a half-game back of those damn Twinkies. C’mon, LAA!

Updated: Twins lose! Welcome back to first place, Sox fans!

We know who the Kings are, but there are still some Jokers hanging around.

Alexei Ramirez

Can't argue since he won the game, but props to the big blond dude who kept the team hanging around long enough for him to do it!
