Glad I missed most of it.

P.S. Let's avoid the sweep, okay?

Scored runs, but fugly pitching.

At least it's a change from the great pitching and fugly offense?

Well if they had to lose, at least I wasn't there to see it (although I will be there tomorrow).

Danks had eight consecutive good starts coming into tonight. Unfortunately, it all fell apart for him on a night where the offense "exploded" for six runs.

I love the Sox as much as the next girl, but at some point you gotta laugh to keep from breaking things. :smile: I'm going tomorrow to enjoy time at the ballpark before winter :angry:. If they lose, I won't let it bum me out too much. We have 2010!

Agreed. White Sox baseball is too serious for me to laugh at these guys. I threw over my stool and punctured a hole in the wall over today's game. Perhaps I need to settle down on my White Sox fanship.

Off Topic: I was just looking through the Yankees lineup on gameday and their 1-8 all have OPS's over .850, With Melky Cabrera having an .750 OPS. Wow. That must be refreshing.

Wasn't the first time this year either. Broke my phone during the Linebrink Wrigley game and my remote during the Wise out-at-home vs. Tigers game. Oh, and I broke my own soul witnessing the 3 game sweep against the Twins at the HHH in late July.

Also, I've found out that throwing tennis balls and water bottles is a good way to reprieve myself of some of that anger without breaking anything.

Livng in Michigan and being surrounded by Tiger Fans - I'd much rather see the Twins overtake Detroit - and finally shut up all the people I work with

I sat next to some Twins fans and had a very pleasent conversation with them. They find Gardenhire as infuriating as we find Ozzie at times and hate the Dome as much as we do. It was nice to find some common ground.

Yeah, you definitely weren't talking to my friend. She loves the dump so much, though she's excited for Target Field. She's a cool girl, though. She loves baseball as much as I do.

She loves Gomez, too. When I told her he was nothing but a hot dog player, she rolled her eyes and said he was just "excited to be playing." :cool::tongue:

Danks has been good for us this year. As long as he's good and healthy for us in 2010, I don't care about tonight if it was just one bad outing for him.

True. Danks had a great outing vs. the twins in last year's blackout game, which was far bigger than tonight's game.

Yeah, I agree. I wasn't meaning to be critical of Danks. Everyone is entitled to one bad game. It's the hitters who have been bad for weeks and months that deserve blame.

It's just frustrating that the offense "erupted" for six runs on a night where Danks struggled. John has had some gems go to waste where he probably would have killed for six runs of support.

I recently discovered that throwing my dogs' soft squeaky toys at the TV relieves quite a bit of frustration during these games, without breaking the TV.

I tried to be optimistic, even up until Sunday, but I'm done now. I'm bummed about how this year turned out. It will be a long winter, but I'll try to look forward to next year.

And all I got was this foul ball...

this was from punto in the top of the 8th inning my girl and I had a blast though we are out of the running and this was just for fun. It would have been nice if they would have been able to pull off a win. I asked dj if he would sign the ball he looked at me and kept walking that jerk lol oh well we plan on going to sox fest in january and hopefully get the ball signed then. the game was fun we had fun and we got a nice souvenir as well :)

What makes you think that? The Sox have a major bullpen overhaul to undertake already. You think they're going to just let Bobby walk?

In the second half, he's been part of that bullpen problem. He's not the same pitcher this year, and it has nothing to do with how hard he throws. He's a better pitcher in the mid-90s than in the 100s...the numbers have never lied there. This year, he's giving up a lot of homeruns and the thing that really sticks out: lefties are absolutely tearing him apart. Unless this is just a fluke, I think now is as good of time as ever to move Jenks. At the very least, I don't know how much longer he should close games if he can only retire right-handers.

Not let him walk, but trade him for something of value (whatever that may be). Don't be surprised, he is getting expensive and the Sox have Thornton to close.

So you want to trade an expensive closer coming off an injury plagued couple of years after a down year in this economy?

His trade value is zero. This leaves the Sox with only two options:

1) Keep him.
2) Non-tender him.

Even KW can't talk fast enough to make trading him for anything worth having even an option.

I really hope Thornton is our closer in 2010, maybe we can get a good set-up man for Jenks.

You think Bobby's trade value is zero? Wow. Just wow.

Kenny got something decent for Joe Borchard. I figure he might be able to get something decent if he decides to shop Jenks.

Unless I'm missing something Borchard wasn't set to make around 7 million in arbitration. In this economy he'll have a hard time trying to move that for anything worth having unless he wants to absorb a great deal of that contract which I don't see him doing.

Plus Thornton at the time was nothing but another first round bust if you remember correctly. It was just swapping out one for another.

Jenks has 140 saves over the last four years. You think that has no value in the market? Ask the Tampa Bay Rays if they would take Jenks. I'll bet they would.
