Still Winless

April 8 at Kansas City


Sox Project Update:
Wildly tossed bolts
The tiny parts supposed to hold the building together were scattered all over the construction zone.

Short Take:   The effort is better, but the Royals continue to expose the Sox for their flaws.

No matter what may have happened in the offseason or what the pundits may have told us about the White Sox, there are still plenty of flaws about the team. We saw the effects of some of those flaws Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals. The defending AL champs had no sympathy for our Pale Hose and won 7-5.

Things looked promising when the Sox, down 1-0, staged a two-out rally in the second. Adam LaRoche doubled and Gordon Beckham singled, paving the way for a 3-run homer by Tyler Flowers. But Jose Quintana, in an outing too reminiscent of Jeff Samardzija on Monday, gave all those runs right back in the third on one swing by Eric Hosmer. Gotta love that kind of charity.

The teams evened up a bit by scoring in every other middle inning. Beckham had an RBI single in the 4th, Salvador Perez did the same in the fifth and Alexei Ramirez hit a sacrifice fly. That made the score 5-5, allowing Quintana to depart with the latest in his growing collection of no-decisions.

It was time for an extensive showing of the Sox bullpen. Javy Guerra and Zach Duke allowed three total baserunners, but threw a scoreless inning apiece. When Zach Putnam came on for the 8th however, everything changed. Alcides Escobar led off with a single and Lorenzo Cain, perhaps upset with being hit earlier in the game and on Monday, hit a 422-foot bomb to left. Greg Holland then came on to retire the order in the ninth.

While the season is still very young, there hasn't been a whole lot to inspire confidence in the Sox to this point. The offense is there, but the pitching has been erratic. What is supposed to be the team's most improved area looks very hittable, at least for the Royals. When you add spotty defense and rally-killing baserunning, there should be little question for an 0-2 start.

As for the hit batsmen, it's doubtful the Sox are trying to do this on purpose (except in one case for Samardzija on Monday). Still, it's worth noting the Sox are tied with Oakland for the league lead in HBP with four. Perhaps Don Cooper needs to settle his guys down. It's gotta be more concerning to always hit guys than simply walk them.

The Sox will attempt to salvage the last game of the series Thursday afternoon. Hopefully, John Danks will have his stuff against new Royals acquisition Edinson Volquez. You can watch beginning at 1:10 on Comcast SportsNet.

 If we see more of this crap, we'll be cutting our funding for the project.
