Our standards against the Twinkies have been historically low, so I can't get mad at 3 out of 4. Danks hasn't been too hot lately.

Danks didn't pitch an awful game. He set himself up for problems, but there were some typical Twins bloop hits to help seal his fate.

Danks hasn't been too hot lately. Good comeback effort by the team, but that big 4 spot was too much to overcome like Peavy's 1st inning 6 spot last week. Hard to lose when you see Detroit almost unstoppable lately.

The Sox left 13 men on base. They really should have won this one. No clutch hitting at all.

Ozzie's postgame comments...says stranding so many runners is "typical" for the Sox and has been that way since spring training.

That's kind of what has been killing him lately. When he's not winning games, those one innings seem to get him.

Not to mention Alexei's trademark in-game siesta

And Rios' trademark "let's look at the 3rd strike right down the middle of the plate with a runner on 3rd and 2 outs."

Although the bat-breaking afterwards was mildly interesting. :rolleyes:

The magic number is now down to 12, which potentially means that Detroit could clinch the division in Chicago (not likely, but possible).

I suggest the Sox might want to take a few from Cleveland to ensure that that can't happen.

I was involved in some stuff so I would check in on the game periodically,and everytime I did the Sox had multiple runners on base,with 2 outs,and AJ was grounding out,it seemed, or someone else.

AJ has hit well,but I swear the guy is one of the worst clutch hitters on this team. He has fewer rbis than Juan,who leads off,yet he is hitting around .290....Flowers has cooled off at the plate,but I pray he is the answer long term so that next year,we have a viable alternative to AJ grounding out to the second baseman 300 times.

Johnny had another one of those innings that lose games. We have had a few of those these this year. Ouch. Twins split season series 9-9.

Well, at least that is an improvement. We have lost the season series to them every year since 2005. We actuallly won the last three series against them. Now if we can just sweep Detroit next week...

To be fair, the guy has been hitting behind Dunn and Rios for most of the year. It's not like there is anyone on base for him to knock in most of the time.

It's also part of the reason why it seems like AJ is batting with 2 outs so often.

Ozzie said Rios is working hard (while POINTEDLY not saying Dunn was) so maybe he's just a guy who keeps everything bottled up inside and doesn't show anything outwardly, a guy like Baines.

Except for being a clutch hitter like Harold..!!

I think that there has been at least one emotional episode in the dugout.

Welcome to your 2011 Cattle Prod Chicago White Sox..... I guess the theme this season was to work on their summer tans while on base.
