Looks Like a White Sox Winner Thome

April 7 vs. Kansas City Royals


KW's Daily Special:
Beef Stew from the crock pot
Sometimes it takes longer to make it taste good.

Short Take:Jim Thome put the Palehose on his back for a wild ride, turning a for-sure loss into an Opening Day winner on Chicago's south side.

According to the New York Times, the Kansas City Royals are winning the division this year though they have yet to sniff even mediocrity for more than a half season since the 80s. Jim Thome must've read those predictions, as he started our Sox on the right track to proving the Times wrong with a single swing in the nick of time. Your final score: Palehose 4, NY Times Division Winners 2.

The teams traded runs in the second frame. After Alex Gordon drove a solo shot to deep center, our Sox loaded the bases with nobody out (Thome, Jermaine Dye, and Paul Konerko) and were able to draw even on a clutch RBI single by Josh Fields. Dye was thrown out at home, which inabled our Sox to continue scoring.

A trio of innings later, Mark Buehrle started looking pretty shaky in loading the bases with nobody out (Mark Teahen, Jose Guillen, and Mike Jacobs). Fortunately our starting pitcher has so much experience, so he quickly dusted off his shoulders and pitched out of the jam, allowing only one run to come home (Guillen).

When it seemed the NY Times would be proven right for at least a day, Jim Thome put the entire team on his back like he did more than several times last season. With our Sox down 2-1 with 2 out in the 8th, Thome launched a 3-run bomb to deep left-center to give our Sox their first lead of the game, completing the box score.

Bobby Jenks came in and recorded his first save of the season on his first try, giving our Sox sole possession of first place in the AL Central Division. Seems like 2005 again? Wire-to-wire? We'll see. Do you have any more predictions to make, oh you scholarly NY Times? Tune in to WGN tomorrow night at 7:11 to hopefully see another winner on the south side.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
I'll give this one 3 stars: 1 for Thome's heroics; 2 for Dotel pitching a scoreless inning; 3 for Jenks recording the save.
