TIME TO KEEP IT REAL ON THE AL CENTRAL RACE!!

twinswin.jpg

OK…LET ME GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT I AM SICK OF THIS CRAP! Now last night was the tale of two games it went from “Can Buerhle get a perfect game AGAIN???” to “Damn we’re down 5-1 how did that happen??” I’m not gonna recap nothing today I’m just gonna talk about the most frustrating things of last night . The only good thing that happened last night was Buerhle retiring a ML record 45 batters in a row & then the classy Twins fans giving him a standing O.
45straight.jpg
Now after that he walks Casilla then gives up a hit to Denard Span with 2 OUTS!! so then Mauer hits flyball to left field and what happens???????? SCOTT PODSEDNIK BECAME ALFONSO SORIANO AND FORGOT HOW TO FIELD!!!!

Then Chris Getz does the most stupid thing ever in the 7th when he move to the right on a play that was easily a double play especially with JOE FREAKIN CREDE!!! but NOOOOOO CHRIS GETZ THINKS ITS A HIT & RUN BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM IS…….NO ONE’S RUNNING JACKASS!!!! Then before you know it there’s runners on 2nd & 3rd NO OUTS, base hit from Michael Cuddyer hits a single and “WOW…..WE’RE ACTUALLY LOSING?????”

REAL TALK:

Now I’m finna do what the title of my blog says give the Sox some REAL TALK! Now you’re SUPPOSED to win this division, you’re SUPPOSED to have the best pitching rotation in the division but if you don’t play a little thing called…….DEFENSE you are NOT gonna win this division. Now I am one of the fans who feels weird stuff happens in the dome but let’s be real people the Chicago White Sox are a TERRIBLE defensive team, outta the 9 runs the Twins have scored in the 1st two games we have GIVEN THEM 7 OF THOSE RUNS WITH OUR WEAK DEFENSE!!! and also stop the complaining man. The Twins are not the freaking(i really wanna say another word) Yankees of the 90’s!!! Every single time we go there we act like they are just UNBEATABLE NOOOOO IF YOU START PLAYING DEFENSE YOU CAN WIN!!! AND IF THEY THINK THAT THIS KINDA PLAY IS GONNA FLY AGAINST THE YANKEES???? STOP IT! WE WILL BE COOKED IF WE DON’T GET BETTER DEFENSIVELY!
WILL THE REAL CARLOS QUENTIN STAND UP?????

Now Carlos how can I say this……………..YOU CAN’T KEEP GOIN 0-4!! YOU HAVE LIKE 4 HITS SINCE BEING BACK! I KNOW YOU ARE HEALTHY AFTER MAKING THAT PAY IN DETROIT A COUPLE DAYS AGO SO WHERE’S THE OFFENSE???? The main question here is Carlos Quentin really the player he showed us last year??? or was that just a flash in the pan and he is really just a injury prone bum??? MAYBE THE DIAMONDBACKS KNEW SOMETHING WE DIDN’T???? NOW ALL I KNOW IS IF WE DON’T FIX ALL THIS WE HAVE NOOOOO CHANCE IN THIS DIVISION, UNTIL NEXT TIME PEACE!!…..GO BEARS!

SLOWLY SINKING….

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in after a horrible offensive performance by the Sox last night. What can i say about this team hmmm…….i got it, this years White Sox are kinda like when you’re on a plane that has a lot of turbulence and then the ride is smooth for about 5 minutes and then a huge dip occurs again.Just when you think that the Sox are gonna start rollin they put up a 4 hit, 2 run performance like they did last night. I blame this loss SOLELY on the White Sox weak offense because once again we blow another good performance from a Sox pitcher with bad no let me re-phrase that, horrendous offense.

Besides the rough two innings where he was pitching slower than usual John Danks was solid, he shut the Dodgers offense for 5 more innings. The main problem for us was this guy:
kuroda.jpg
Hiroki Kuroda, we made this guy look like a Hall of Famer. He almost CG us until JD hit an RBI single in the 9th to make it a 3 run ball game. Now while I was watching this horrible excuse for a baseball game I was also for the 1st time in my 20 years of life checking in on the Cubs game ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE PLAYING THE TIGERS DON’T GET IT TWISTED LOL I wanted the Cubs to win for the first time in my life because the Tigers are leading our division then I almost forgot who I was watching as the Cubs used their God-given ability to LOSE off the bat of Ryan Rayburn as Kevin Gregg(which will bring me to another point later( gave up a win on the walkoff as he blew another save.

Now with the Sox down 6 games in the division the real question is with the trade deadline approaching in like 5 weeks will Kenny Williams be a buyer or seller???? Now im not completely jumping off the boat yet because a 6 game lead is no where near insurmountable and also besides Justin Verlander that Tigers pitching staff & bullpen doesn’t invoke fear into me. Now with the 2nd half approaching soon you gotta be aware of the Piranhas.
mmboys.jpg
Right now they are just doing what they usually do, they stay afloat only being 4 games behind the Tigers and as soon as the 2nd half begins they do a transformation and become the deadly Pirannhas. Thats why the Sox need to get a run going because this will be a 3 headed race real soon and with nuthing but games at the dreaded Metrodome left against the Twins its gonna get real hard. So if I’m Kenny I would still be a buyer instead of a seller because if we can get one more solid starter I believe things will get REAL interesting with a 3 team battle between Tigers, Sox & of course the deadly Pirannhas for that AL Central title. Until next time yall…PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GAME 163, CHICAGO ARE U READY????

LAST THURSDAY THEY HAD BEEN BEATEN PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY AFTER A 3-GAME SWEEP AT THE HANDS OF THE MINNESOTA TWINS, EVERYTHING LOOKED BLEAK FOR THE WHITE SOX AS THEY HAD TO BASICALLY GO 5-0 TO GO TO THE POSTSEASON AND WITH THE TWINS GOING HOME TO PLAY THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS IT LOOKED ALL BUT OVER. BUT THEN THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENED KANSAS CITY COMES RIGHT INTO THE DREADED METRODOME AND TAKE 2 OUT OF 3 FROM THE TWINS SURE THE SOX LOST 2 TO THE INDIANS AS WELL BUT THE HEART OF THE SOX WAS STILL BEATING. THEN BEFORE YOU KNOW IT THEY WIN ON SUNDAY 5 TO 1 AGAINST INDIANS TO SET UP THE MAKEUP GAME WITH THE TIGERS AND IN A CLOSE 2-2 GAME IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 6TH WITH BASES LOADED AND 1 OUT THIS HAPPENED:

Alexei Ramirez

ALEXEI RAMIREZ BREATHED EVEN MORE LIFE INTO THE SOX PLAYOFF HOPES AND A BLOW TO THE TWINS CLINCHING ON MONDAY. NOW THE TWINS DO WHAT THEY ABSOLUTELY DIDNT WANT TO TO DO AS THEY WILL HAVE TO HOP A PLANE A HEAD TO A PLACE WHERE THEY ARE ONLY 2-7 THIS YEAR, U.S.CELLULAR FIELD. BUT WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID HISTORY IS NOT ON THE SIDE OF EITHER TEAM. FOR THE TWINS THE LAST 3 1 GAME PLAYOFFS HAVE BEEN WON BY THE HOME TEAM AND FOR THE SOX NO TEAM IN MLB HISTORY HAS EVER WON 3 GAMES IN  A ROW AGAINST 3 DIFFRENT TEAMS TO MAKE THE POSTSEASON. BUT ALL THOSE STATS GO OUT THE DOOR ALL THAT MATTERS IS 1 GAME AND NO MATTER THE OUTCOME I WILL BE PROUD OF MY 2008 WHITE SOX BECAUSE WE FIGHT THROUGH EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE NO ONE EVEN EXPECTED US TO EVEN BE CLOSE TO  1 WIN AWAY FROM A DIVISION TITLE. THAT IS REALLY A TESTAMENT TO OUR TEAMS COMEBACK ATTITUDE AND OF COURSE IN MY OPINION THE BEST MANAGER IS BASEBALL HATE HIM OR LOVE HIM OZZIE GUILLEN

IF WE WIN, WE ADVANCE TO PLAY THE RAYS ON THURSDAY AND THE SOUTHSIDE IS GON PARTY ALL NIGHT BUT EVEN IF WE LOSE, HELL YEA I’LL BE DISSAPOINTED CUZ I NEVER WANNA SEE MY SOX LOSE BUT AT LEAST THEY WENT OUT SWINGING AND WITH SOME HONOR THIS WILL BE A GREAT SEASON EITHER WAY BUT I THINK WE WILL GET IT DONE TONIGHT. JOHN DANKS I THINK WILL DELIVER ON THE BIGGEST START OF HIS YOUNG CAREER AND IT SHOULD BE A FUN NIGHT. I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE TO ROOT MY SOX ON BUT THE GAME SOLD OUT BEFORE I EVEN CAME HOME FROM WORK LAST NIGHT LOL, SO I’LL BE ROOTING AT HOME

WHITE SOX REAL TALK…LETS GET EM BOYS 1 WIN AND WE ARE DIVISION CHAMPS!!! PEACE!!!!

THANK YOU GOD!!! WHITE SOX AND TWINS IN PLAYOFF GAME!

WHAT IS REALLY GOOD PEOPLE!!!! I HOPE YOU ALL ARE FEELING AS GREAT AS I AM RIGHT NOW CUZ MY SOX ARE GONNA GET ANOTHER SHOT AT THE DAMN TWINS TOMMOROW!!!!

This game all turned around when Alexei Ramirez hit a SHOT HEARD ROUND THE CITY:

I was at work watching the game and as soon as he hit hit I FLEW OUT MY CHAIR AND RAN AROUND THE PLACE LOL That was The best moment of the season so far. Now looking forward to tommorow boy is it gonna be good. Believe me U.S. Celluar Field is THEE LAST PLACE the Twins want to be tommorow.  They are 2-7 at Da Cell this year and they will be pitching Nick Blackburn(who has not been good lately) against John Danks and the winner is AL Central Champ and loser goes home right now i think the Sox have all the momentum and Twins might be scared to play here, BUT THEY ARE STILL THE PIRAHNAS so the Sox better not be TOO confident but i believe we will get it done GO SOX!!!

WHITE SOX REAL TALK…PEACE I’LL BE AT THE GAME TOMMROW NIGHT

DO U BELIEVE IN MIRACLES???

AL CENTRAL RACE UPDATE:PLAYOFFS COME A LITTLE EARLY

Wuz good world this is White Sox Real Talk im sorry i havent wrote a blog since friday but its been a very dissapointing weekend for me. First the Sox blow 2 HUGE oppurtunites to regain 1st place on Friday & Saturday then I had to take the long route home on Saturday because the Chicago Police shot someone in my neighborhood and the streets were blocked off(but thats a story for another day). Anyway things looked MUCH BETTER on Sunday as not only did my Bears beat the Eagles 24-20 but MY WHITE SOX STAYED ALIVE WITH A 5-1 VICTORY OVER THE INDIANS. So now that takes us into today:

It will be Tigers and White Sox and basically the playoffs began for us yestserday cuz from here on out its WIN OR GO HOME!!!. Its really very simple we win tonight then we host the Twins in a AL Central Divison Title game tomorrow evening(AND IF THAT GAME HAPPENS TOMMOROW I WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE TO WATCH THE SOX KICK THE **** OUT THE TWINS) OR we lose and Season is over and I’ll begin my mourning for about 2 days then get ready to root against the Cubs on Wensday lol. I hope the White Sox can carry the momemtum over from yesterday into todays game because if they think that a Jim Leyland Baseball Club is just gon roll over cuz they have nothing to play for, then you better think again. AND GUESS WHO’S ON THE MOUND FOR THE TIGERS TODAY?????? OUR OLD FRIEND FREDDY GARCIA. Freddy is DEFINTELY going to pitch hard today as he is tryna keep a spot on the Tigers for next year. I know Detroit is going to come to play  because lets  go back to Spring Training and EVERYBODY EVEN ME thought they were going to the World Series after they aquired Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis. But thats the funny thing about baseball you never know whats gonna happen as the Tigers have the worst record in the AL Central. So they would love nothing more but to end the White Sox season today. So thats my analysis if i don’t write another blog this evening that means that we lost lol. So hopefully I’ll be back at the Good ‘Ol Laptop this evening. GO SOX!!!! DO U BELIVE IN MIRACLES????

WHITE SOX REAL TALK….PEACE

AL CENTRAL RACE RECAP SEPT.25TH:HEARTBREAK SOUTHSIDE

TWINS 7,WHITE SOX 6

Devastation…..Heartbreak….Shock….Bamboozled…..Speechless. Those were all the words that described how I was feeling last night at approximatley 10:45pm. There were runners on 1st and 3rd, 2 Outs, 1-2 count, then BANG Alexi Casilla hits a RBI single right down the throats of White Sox fans everywhere. Pandamonium erupts at the Metrodome, The Twins rush the field to celebrate, I Damn near break my remote and fall to the floor with my head down just shocked and wondering WHAT THE **** JUST HAPPENED?. We had a 6-1 lead and let them score 6 unanswered runs for a comeback victory. Sure there were some HORRIBLE calls by 3rd Base Umpire Marquez who ROYALLY SCREWED NICK SWISHER:

But thats not what lost us the game, we just couldn’t muster any runs off the Twins. Even though we scored 6 in the 4th inning if you go back and watch the tape we really didn’t do ****. We scored five of those 6 runs off defensive errors by the Twins. So it wasn’t like we just  exploded in that inning. After that inning its was  1,2,3…YOU’RE OUT!!!! for the rest of the game, and the pirhannas just kept chipping at our lead. So 8th Inning rolls around and what happens? the Twins score on bloop-*** singles LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO!!!!. Once we got to extras i knew it was over. So now the Sox head home in 2nd place, and a beaten and battered team mentally. Now we gotta use Da Cell as a Springboard to get us to the postseason

All of our remaing games will be played here, sure we’re 53-26 at home but we can’t afford even 1 loss or its time to back it up for the winter. We have got to sweep the Indians,Beat the Tigers in the makeup game, and welcome the Twins to HELL in a tiebreaker. I now have to hope that the KANSAS CITY ROYALS BEAT THE TWINS AT THE DOME, BUT WHAT ARE THE ODDS  OF THAT HAPPENING??. So mathmatically we’re still in it but emotionally I think my Sox have already packed it up. I sure hope I’m wrong, but we don’t deserve to be in the playoffs and its a shame cuz we’ve come so far from last year but we need a MIRACLE on 35th and Shields this weekend. They need something to pump them up i suggest that Ozzie play this movie before tonights game lol:

AND MAKE THEM LISTEN TO THIS SONG….LOL

MAYBE IT’LL GET THEM PUMPED LOL I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY I’VE RUN OUTTA ANSWERS….

WHITE SOX REAL TALK…DO U BELIVE IN MIRACLES?????

MY THOUGHTS & FEELINGS ABOUT AL CENTRAL RACE….

Wuz good world, I’m just sitting here at my laptop just wondering WHAT THE HELL WENT WRONG????. This time last week i was feelin good my Sox had a 2.5 game lead in the Al Central and the Twins were reeling. I was making plans to get ready to purchase my tickets for the ALDS and getting my credit card ready to buy my AL Central Divison Champs gear. A week later that party on the Southside is on hold and if we lose tonight it will be on hold……INDEFINTELY. But I know how we got here, What Do the Chicago White Sox and The Detroit Pistons have in common?? THEY BOTH ACT LIKE SOMEONE IS GONNA GIVE THEM SOMETHING JUST BECAUSE THEY WON 1 TITLE!!!!

HERE’S MY REASONS FOR SAYING SO:

DETROIT PISTONS WIN NBA TITLE IN 2004….

THEIR PLAYOFF SUCCESS AFTER TITLE:

2005-LOSE IN NBA FINALS IN 7 GAMES TO SAN ANTONIO SPURS

2006-LOSE IN EAST FINALS IN 6 GAMES TO MIAMI HEAT

2007-LOSE IN EAST FINALS IN 6 GAMES TO CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

2008-LOSE IN EAST FINALS IN 6 GAMES TO BOSTON CELTICS

 

WHITE SOX WIN WORLD SERIES IN 2005…….

SUCCESS AFTER TITLE:

2006-DESPITE WINNING 90 PLUS GAMES DON’T CLINCH WILD CARD, NO POSTSEASON

2007-HORRIBLE ONLY WORD TO DESCRIBE IT

2008-????????

U SEE A PATTERN HERE??, I KNOW YOU DO. The Sox and Pistons both have horrible attitudes and act like the run thangs cuz they won 1 TITLE!!!! PISTONS THAT WAS 4 YEARS AGO, SOX THAT WAS 3 YEARS AGO STOP LIVING IN THE PAST!!!!!!

Wat also made me mad was 2 stupid comments by Mark Buerhle, one of those comments came yesterday when he said “THE TWINS ARE PESTS BECAUSE ALL THEY DO IS PLAY SMALL BALL, THAT’S ALL” WELL HOW DO YOU THINK THE SOX WON WORLD SERIES??????? SMALL BALL U IDIOT!!!

HERE’S THE SECOND COMMENT THAT CAME A COUPLE YEARS AGO BUT TRANSLATES TO THIS SERIES BUERHLE SAID “EVEN IF THE TWINS DO BEAT US TO WIN THE CENTRAL THEY JUST GONNA BE 1 AND DONE IN THE PLAYOFFS” Well last time I checked PLAYOFFS IS THE REASON YOU PLAY DUMB ***….

STOP WITH THE EXCUSES PLEASE….

ALL I KEEP HEARING IS “AW WE JUST DON’T PLAY WELL IN THE DOME, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY” STOP YOUR WHINING ALREADY SURE WE HAVE BAD HISTORY THERE……BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY ITS STILL THE SAME DAMN GAME U HAVE BEEN PLAYIN SINCE LITTLE LEAGUE…..BASEBALL. RIGHT NOW IM AT A POINT WHERE I’M JUST FRUSTRATED BY ALL THESE STUPID POST-GAME INTERVIEWS TALKIN BOUT WE JUST DONT PLAY WELL THERE…PLAIN AND SIMPLE IF  WE DON’T WIN TONIGHT WE NOT GOING HERE:

 

Cuz then we gotta win 3 maybe even all of our last 4 games at home and hope and pray that the KANSAS CITY ROYALS OF ALL PEOPLE can win 1 Game in Minnesota. THOSE ARE NOT GOOD ODDS BECAUSE MY FORMER HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM COULD BEAT THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS..

SO ITS BACKS AGAINST THE WALL TIME…OFFENSE NEEDS TO COME OUT OF HIBERNATION FAST BECAUSE EVEN IF GAVIN PITCHES A GREAT GAME U STILL NEED RUNS TO WIN SO…..

IM OUT

WHITE SOX REAL TALK…PEACE

P.S.: EVERYBODY PRAY FOR OUR SOX, CUZ THEY SHO GON NEED IT!!!
