Twinkie Bites Man!

July 29 at Minnesota


Toon Squad Update:
Clark Kent
Need to find a phone booth and change back into our blue and red costomes so we can start winning again.

Short Take:Quintana is sold again but the offense took a long snooze.

Anyone else tired of watching the offense fall flat on it's face? I sure am. Tough to be a Sox fan these days given the way the team seems to go into prolonged offensive funks. Last night they managed to go scoreless for 12 full innings. Of course that was after Adam Eaton led the game off with a solo shot to give the team the lead. The pitching was solid until we got to the 12th and after that the team was into the dregs of the bullpen and ended up losing 2-1.

Pitchingwise this was a solid performance from Quintana and the main relieving corp. With some help from Adam Eaton's arm they managed to hold the Twins to one run for the first 11.1 innings. Along the way Quintana scattered 7 hits and a walk while striking out 9. As mentioned he got some help from his defense and Mr. Everything Adam Eaton in particular who threw out one runner at home and another at third. Both assists came late in the game with the score tied at one. Alberts was solid for 1.1 though he gave up a massive double that just barely missed going out. Then Duke, Jones and Robertson were all solid before Jennings came in and hit the first batter he faced then yielded a sacrifice and a walk before getting yanked for Tommy Kahnle who decided he'd rather be doing something (anything) else and walked two batters to end the game. All Sox fans could do is shake their heads.

Offensively this game wasn't so much frustrating as just sad. After Eaton's leadoff homer the Sox were just pathetic at the plate. With Todd Frazier out with the flu the Sox were definitely shorthanded and it showed. They only generated 6 hits and a walk and managed to run into even more outs on the base paths with Melky Cabrera getting gunned down at third for the final out (!) of the 9th and both Tim Anderson and JB Shuck getting "caught stealing" doing that "super early break for second before the pitcher has even entered his windup" thing the Sox have been doing all year long. Both times the pitcher realized what was going on stepped off and threw the ball to the infielder. Shuck actually made it back to first when the second baseman dropped the throw, but Anderson got caught in a rundown and was tagged out. Why a guy with Anderson's speed is breaking that early I have no idea. He steals bases with ease seems he could be a bit more cautious and still steal regularly. In either case it doesn't really matter, when your team manages 7 base runners in 12 innings you aren't going to win many games and the Sox didn't win tonight.

I don't know if it's the lack of the 83 uniforms or something else missing, but this team has so many regular funks at the plate it gets frustrating. Of course with Navarro, Shuck, Saladino and Sanchez all filling out the 5-9 slots there isn't a lot of "there" there. Hopefully Todd is back tonight and the Sox can find a way to get things going again, because I can't take many more of these snoozefests. Game time on Saturday is 6:10 in Chicago with Gonzalez taking the mound for the Sox. Hopefully he doesn't have to pitch a shutout but he should strive to do so just to be safe because the Sox are on the road and their Superman costumes are back in Chicago.
