Top Ten Reasons the Sox Are Back Below .500

May 20 vs. Cleveland


Sox Project Update:
Improper use of tools
Everything needed to complete the job was in place, but not enough was done.

Short Take:   Offense is stymied and pitching is not enough. Not a good combination.

In honor of the great David Letterman's final program which aired Wednesday, the Sox game, which featured the visiting Cleveland Indians, will be recapped in the style of a Top Ten list. Considering it was a 4-3 defeat, I think the laughs are needed. As the headline suggests, it's the Top Ten Reasons the Sox Are Back Below .500. Here we go.

10. Return of cold and wet Chicago weather made for miserable playing conditions

9. Carlos Rodon allowed five walks despite six innings of one-run ball

8. Could only muster solo homers from Adam Eaton and Conor Gillaspie off Shaun Marcum

7. Struck out six times against Marcum

6. Dan Jennings came out for the seventh and promptly walked Brett Hayes

5. Jennings made off-target throw to second on bunt by Michael Bourn, resulting in both runners being safe

4. Jennings gave up RBI single to Jose Ramirez and RBI double to Michael Brantley, giving Tribe all runs they needed

3. Loaded bases against Cody Allen with one out in ninth, but only run came on Alexei Ramirez single

2. J.B. Shuck, pinch-hitting for Tyler Flowers, struck out on three pitches to end game

And the number one reason the Sox are back below .500:

1. It may be the proper reflection of this year's team.

Paul Shaffer's not here to play me out, so I'll just say the Sox can get a split in the series Thursday. John Danks, who's been on a roll lately, gets the ball against Danny Salazar. Hopefully, the weather will be a little kinder for the 7:10 start. Otherwise, stay warm by watching at home on Comcast SportsNet.
