And the Winner of the Kenny Williams Cup Is…

June 17 at Arizona

Sox ran out of quarters to play; GAME OVER

Short Take:   Not Edwin Jackson. The Arizona Diamondbacks, led by Daniel Hudson, take the Sox out to dry with a 4-1 victory at Chase Field.

It is still too early to know if this trade will be the Kenny Williams version of the “Bobby Bonilla Trade” or perhaps ‘Brock for Broglio”. Still, Edwin Jackson has been nothing short of a under-performing, overpaid palooka since coming over to the Sox last July 31. Daniel Hudson, on the other hand, is making a little above the league minimum with a combined 16-7 record in the National League in less than one full season. Its hard not to feel awful thinking about what a young, cheap Daniel Hudson would look like in the Sox rotation, with Jerry Reinsdorf’s money better allocated in filling other positions, perhaps with Carl Crawford in leftfield or Adrian Beltre at the hot corner. Taking it a step further, looking at Kenny Williams’ track record since late 2007, imagine a Sox back-end rotation with the aforementioned Hudson, along with Gio Gonzalez and a capable Clayton Richard. The rotation would rival that of the young arms (when healthy) in Oakland and Texas.

All of that unfortunately is water under the bridge. The Sox are stuck now with high-priced veterans such as Juan Pierre, Jake Peavy and Edwin Jackson. Sooner, hopefully rather than later, these guys will start performing to their potential and earning their salary. The 2009 White Sox had a nice run in them after a 33-37 start, propelling them to first place on July 23 on the day of Mark Buehrle’s Perfect Game. The 2010 Sox went 25-5 in June to jump into first place on the day before the All-Star Break, almost in storybook fashion. The book is still open on the 2011 season, but there are no apparent signs that the Sox have the ability to make a sustained run similar to the ‘09 and ‘10 teams. Much of this is based on the offensive woes the Sox have had all year.

On Friday night, the offense continued to sleep. Daniel Hudson pitched his first career complete game, throwing nine innings of 3-hit, one-run baseball. Hudson only allowed five base runners on the night (a walk and TCQ HBP being the other two). The King, Paul Konerko, accounted for the only Sox run on the night with a solo blast in the 7th). Edwin Jackson was his predictable self, throwing 111 pitches through 6.2 innings while being handicapped by a 30-pitch first inning. Edwin gave up two runs in the first and another two in the 7th, with the low-blow being Daniel Hudson’s double off the right-field wall to score Miguel Montero in the 7th for the D-Back’s third run.
