-Good to see Frank Thomas working Byrd deep into the count, even though he popped out

-Ordonez and Konerko also popped out

-Is Byrd pitching inside, trying to jam Sox hitters- I'm not watching the game on television because I don't get FS Chicago- Following it on ESPN Gamecast

Typical Sox. Back to back singles to start the game followed by the 3-4-5 popping out in order. Then Graff starts off the 1st with an error.

Who was it that said the Sox 3-4-5 was best in bigs?

That was me, actually. I guess I had it coming. If the Sox "threaten but don't score" again, I will not be happy.

haha. I wish you were right. Thomas and Mags are huge letdowns so far. I mean Garland must be pissed. I would be....He should at least be up 1-0 right now.

And Sweeney breaks the tie.

The Sox pitching is atrocious

The Sox pitching just plain blows. The bullpen has been dreadful, and Garland seems to have forgotten how to pitch. Of course, that error by Valentin didn't help things in the second, but giving up a homer to Sweeney was John's fault. There's no excuse for that. Sweeney's not the kind of hitter one messes around with.

If we can't score more than 2 runs against the Royals' 4th starter, we don't deserve to win the division.

You could justify a loss to the M's they did win 116 games last year, but KC sucks. This is terrible. Frank 0-3, Mags 1-4. These guys are suppose to be all stars.............

What the heck was that ump lookin at anyway when he made that call?! Jeez, and the umps wonder why they get criticized all the time, sheesh.
