A Clinic In Badness

September 15 vs. Minnesota


Immunity:
Southpaw
Exiled:
Gavin Floyd

I'm confident our mascot did a helluva job comforting the poor fans who threw away their money to watch this crap.

Short Take: The Twins punch the White Sox in the nose and steal their lunch money again.

No point in lamenting this one for too long. We've seen this movie 1,000 times before and we know how it ends. Once again, the White Sox failed to show up against the Minnesota Twins. Due to their lack of effort, the Sox were on the wrong end of a 9-3 ass-kicking Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

The loss drops the Sox eight games back of Minnesota in the AL Central "race" with just 17 games to play. Yeah, it's over. Gavin Floyd and the Sox hitters made sure of that. As per usual, Floyd (10-13) was brutal against the Twins. He gave up six runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander is now 0-4 with an 8.06 ERA against Minnesota this season, with all four losses coming since the All-Star break.

The Sox offense wasn't much better. They went 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position, grounded into three double plays and left nine men on base. The Sox had the bases loaded with one out in the second inning. They didn't score. They had runners on first and third with one out in the fourth inning. They didn't score. You get the idea.

The only Sox highlight was Carlos Quentin's 25th home run of the season, a two-run shot in the sixth inning. But even that was pretty meaningless, given that the Sox were already trailing 6-0 at that point.

Fortunately, there is only one game left in this series. That will come at 7:10 tomorrow night. Mark Buehrle (12-10, 3.99 ERA) takes the ball for the Sox. He'll be opposed by Minnesota right-hander Carl Pavano (16-11, 3.47 ERA). If you can tolerate any more of this crap, you can watch on Comcast SportsNet.
