Another Disaster

(April 22)

Short Take:  Now we're in trouble

Now we're in trouble.  Another weekend sweep at the hands of the Minnesota Twins has left the White Sox contemplating what sort of luck they will need to overcome an 8 game deficit when only three weeks of the season have been played.  Thank God Monday is an off day so the guys can shake off the funk that clearly is hanging in the air inside their clubhouse.  The Sox lost 4-2, but it might as well have been 40-2 for the way the Sox played.  

We never had a chance.  Here once again was a brain-dead performance from the Pale Hose.  Starter Rocky Biddle was wild enough to walk six batters (including three in the first inning) but still managed to pitch five innings and leave with the game tied at 2.  The man was charmed.  The Sox got three tough starts from their pitchers this series and have nothing to show for it.

The line up sucks.  Ray Durham and Jose Valentin each managed to reach base safely twice which is an improvement over recent performance if you can believe it.  However Frank Thomas and Magglio Ordonez failed to deliver much of anything.  Maggs crushed what looked to be an rbi double in the third but was robbed at the wall.  I guess Rocky Biddle wasn't the only one getting lucky out there.

Here's a short paragraph:  Paul Konerko and Sandy Alomar batted in the only two Sox runs of the day.  I would write more but there isn't much else to say.  

Think of all the megabytes of memory the Sox offense will save the internet if they don't wake up soon. 

Keith Foulke gave up the two-run dinger in the eighth inning that killed the Sox.  Frankly, the way the team is playing now, they could drown in the shallow end of the baby pool.

So next comes Oakland, a team even worse off than the Sox.  Last year's A.L. runners up are nine games back in the West division and just as hungry for some quick wins.  After that comes the division-leading Mariners.

More trouble afoot.

Sandy Alomar

1 for 2 with a sacrifice fly rbi to give the Sox the lead.  Unlike four of his teammates, he didn't make the third out with runners in scoring position and he didn't strikeout either.
