What is this team good at? They can't hit, can't catch, can't bunt. Classic example of ineptitude was Sunday night. First inning, leadoff double by Jimenez. Valentin bunts of course, because with no outs and a man at second, we just HAVE to get that ONE runner to 3rd. WHOA, a perfect bunt, 1st and 3rd with no outs! That was MORE than we could have ever hoped for! Thomas strikes out, Ordonez hits into a double play; game over, and that was the FIRST INNING. Ever hear of run and hit, hit and run, stealing? How about hitting to right or GASP! A FLY BALL with a man on 3rd? Oh, and I think we're 0-4 with the AllStar Willie Harris in the lineup, keep trotting him out there too. He had his one bunt single already, let's leave him in until August at .114 or whatever he'll wind up hitting. Another pet peeve of mine is this "working the count" crap. Here's the White Sox definition of working the count: "stand there until you have 2 strikes on you and then go into a defensive shell at the plate because you're afraid to strike out and strike out anyway". Maybe that's why our "great" hitting is almost last in the league! Swing the damn bat if offense is your strength. Standing there watching pitch after pitch sail over the plate does not help when it's 10-2. What are you waiting for, 12 walks? Brutal. Like they say, you can't fire the players.............. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:
