THE STATE OF THE WHITE SOX, 1ST HALF REPORT CARD!

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real  Talk checking in with a 1st half report card for my  Sox. In this blog i will break down the Sox 1st half performance and things to look foward too in the 2nd half so let’s get started.
FIRST HALF GRADE:
The grade that I will give my Sox for the 1st half will be…….drumroll please……….I’ma give em a C. My reasoning for this grade is they basically played like a .500 team for most of this season. Until Mid-June there was really nothing to get excited about on the Southside, everytime they won 2 or 3 you thought they were gonna start streaking then they had a crushing loss. BUT lately they have been a pretty damn good team winning 12 of their last 15 games going into the all-star break.
WHERE WE STAND NOW:

As of right now the White Sox are 45-43 and 3.5 games back of the first place Tigers. Thats pretty good depending on all the things we have been thru this first half. Ranging from the horrible start, being down by as much as 7 games at one point, the Carlos Quentin injury, to the 5th starter problems. Now we are in a race that I believe will be a 3-man race between us, the Tigers & the Pirhannas. Now things are not gonna get any easier in the 2nd half with a couple series against the Tigers that we will need to win & 2 more series at the dreaded Metrodome. We will also be facing the beasts of the east with series against the Yankees, Red Sox & the Rays. So we will defitnley will see what our beloved Southsiders are made of. One thing that needs to really be addressed is the fifth starter situation.

It needs to be resolved cuz this guy ^^^^^^^^^ is not getting the job done. I don’t know if Bartolo Colon will be able to come back up and make the difference & I don’t know if Kenny will make a trade but whatever this guy Clayton Richard can not keep going to the mound cuz we are taking an automatic L everytime he pitches.
2ND HALF PREDICTIONS:
My prediction for the second half is a little tough because this team can defitnely win this division but they are gonna have to me much more consistent especially with the schedule getting tougher but Ima go on a limb and predict that we win this division by at least 3 games .
UNTIL NEXT  TIME PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checking in to preview the Sox’s last 2 series before the all-star break & I will also rant on the All-Star selections so LET’S GET STARTED PEOPLE!! LOL

First off let me start by saying Mark Buerhle is defintley deserving of being an all-star for the 4th time in his career. The man is 8-2 with a 3.04 ERA and could be 10-2 by the time he takes the mound on Tuesday at Busch Stadium. Tommorow the Sox will welcome a Mark DeRosa-less Cleveland Indians to the Cell for a 3 game set where we will send out Buerhls in game 1, Jose in Gm 2 & Clayton Richard in Gm 3. They will send out Jeremey Sowers, Aaron Laffey & David Huff respectively.

Now the Sox have been nothing short of average at home this year with a 20-20 record but would be nice to get that up to 23-20 with a clean sweep of the Indians. Then after this series the Sox will take their first trip to the Dreaded Metrodome in Minnesota to face The M&M boys & Joe Crede.

We play so horrible here that if we win 1 game I will consider that a successful series lol. But good news is that we will have the cream of the crop in our pitching staff on the mound in this series. Danks, Gavin & Buerhls will hopefully get the job done and end the 1st half of the season on the right foot.
ALL-STAR SNUBS!!!!
