Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in after a bounce back victory tonight against the Rays. Since Johnny Danks was scratched from his start due to a blister injury the Sox called up right hander Carlos Torres from Triple A Charlotte to face James “Big Game” Shields(you all know my problem with his nickname lol BUT im not gonna talk about that again.
What can I say about this kid Torres???? cuz he looked GREAT 6 innings only 3 runs allowed & those came off 2 homers not hit after hit after hit lol now im not gonna proclaim him the new Cy Young just cuz he had one nice outing NO lol but could he be a 5th starter option??? i think he has earned another shot for us to see more examples of what he really is. Now for the Sox the 6th inning is when things started to turn in our favor when Scotty Pods continued his great season with a leadoff Homer to make it a 3-1 game. Just a sidenote:I laugh everytime i see Pods blast one LOL its just soo funny but ANYWAY back to regualry scheduled blog lol. 2 outs later Gordon Beckham hit a single followed by Pods reaching base off an error. Then the Cuban Missle came up & hit a 2 RBI triple over B.J. Upton’s head to tie the game.
Then after the 3rd pitching change in the 7th inning the White Sox struck again when JD came up to hit his 60th RBI to give the Sox the lead 4-3.
So things got interesting in the ninth inning once again but this time with Matt Thornton but he got the job done for a much needed White Sox winner. Since the Tigers blew it against Seattle their division lead was cut back to a game again. I’m loving how this team is playing & I’m gonna make a bold prediction that if we win the division ITS GONNA BE A PROBLEM! with a starting 4 of Buerhle,Danks,Floyd, & Contreras I’ll spar with anyone. UNTIL NEXT TIME PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!1
