Frozen Stiff!

April 8th Vs Cleveland


Toon Squad Update:
Olaf
Sox lost their head, their butt and the game.

Short Take:   John Danks gets lit up early and often and the Sox bats were cooooolllllldddd....

"For the first time in forever" the Sox opened the season by winning 3 of 4 in Oakland and then came home to the Frozen wasteland that is Chicago in April. Unfortunately the hot streak didn't continue and today's home opener was cold, brutal and then it was over. The game was actually briefly delayed by snow and cold but eventually they managed to get it started. They way things went Sox fans probably wished they hadn't. At least we can be grateful the Toons didn't actually manage to "build a snowman" as the final score was "only" 7-1.

The game started poorly with John Danks allowing 3 of the first 4 hitters to reach base. The next batter hit a soft chopper in front of home plate and catcher Alex Avila pounced on it. Naturally he promptly threw the ball down the right field line. Two runs scored on that mishap and then a sacrifice fly made it 3-0. Danks gave up two more runs in the second and another two in the 5th, before getting mercifully pulled. The bullpen came on and was its usual reliable self but by then the Sox were buried under an avalanche of runs and never managed to dig their way out.

Offensively not much was happening. Sox bats were listless, lifeless one might even say... cold... The lone bright spot was Todd Frazier who managed to hit a solo shot in the 4th for the only Sox run after getting in an 0-2 hole. Big Todd tacked on another single in the 9th and along the way took a walk for good measure, but everyone else seemed to be waiting for the game to end so they could jump in front of a heat vent. The Sox managed a total of 3 hits and 4 walks for the day.

So not much to be joyful about today unless you weren't at the ballpark and then you can be thankful for that. Hopefully Chris Sale can get the team back on track tomorrow. Weather is supposed to be cold but hopefully the snow flurries will have moved on. In the mean time I guess Sox fans will just have to learn to "let it go". Hope you enjoyed the earworm, Sox fans. Consider it my parting present on this Frozen day...
