Buehrle Brilliant!

(June 13)

Short Take:  Just three from .500!

Enough of the Cub-like personal statistics obsession.  Mark Buehrle's 24.2 consecutive inning shutout streak ended in the first inning against Cincinnati.  While we're sure he could have ended up doing endorsements for fast-food restaurants and video games ("It's soooo real!"), it's this sort of crap no Sox Fans ultimately cares about.

The Sox won 4-2 and Mark Buehrle won his fifth game.  Those are the statistics we like!  Onward and upward, Sox Fans, we're just three beneath .500 now.

Buerhle gave up the long ball with his very first batter.  So belying his 22 years of age, he simply shutdown the Reds for the next five innings until they finally touched him for another run, this time unearned on a fielding error.  

The Reds never knew what hit them.  Ray Durham led off the game for the Sox in the first inning and went yard to tie the game.  One batter latter Carlos Lee lit the Comiskey scoreboard too, for a 2-1 Sox lead.  Jeff Liefer didn't hit a solo dinger, but Sox Fans love rbi singles just as well and the score was 3-1 before Cincinnati got their next at-bats.

Playing in Chicago, do you think the Reds noticed the difference between playing a game at Wrigley Field and this one at Comiskey Park?  That wasn't the Little Sisters of the Poor wearing silver and black!  We don't play in that joke of a division either. 

Magglio Ordonez looked marvelous circling the bases with a crushing blow to dead-center in the third inning and Keith Foulke was his usual brilliant self in the ninth for his twelfth save.  

That's 10 wins in the last 12 games, and 15 of the last 18.  Winning is what it's all about, Sox Fans.  The clueless dolts in the media just don't get it.

Sam-me did the hop tonight, the ball fell short, and the Cubs got their heads caved in.  Guess who made the highlight reel?

Sox Clubhouse "Pick to Click" Winner

Mark Buehrle

One earned run across eight innings pitched, Buehrle struck out four and walked nobody.  His ERA falls to 3.14 and Skip Bayless still hasn't retracted his "overrated phenom" label.  Who is the "overrated idiot", Skip?
