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.

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!

CARLOS & BARTOLO COMING BACK???

carlos-quentin-ozzie-guillen.jpg

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in with some real good news about my Sox. Well after 7 weeks out its looking like Carlos Quentin is on his way back to the Southside after having another successful outing in Triple A Charlotte tongiht going 2-4 with an RBI & a double. Word is that he is also running the bases pretty damn good & is expected to be in the lineup sometime in this series against Baltimore. Now I’m not delusional like Cubs fans who though Aramis Ramirez was gonna come out hitting the hell outta the ball after being out with a seprated shoulder NAH not me. I know Carlos is not gonna be the Carlos of last year but if we can at least get Carlos at 75% thats a real big boost for our dreams of repeating as AL Central Champs.
NOW IN BARTOLO NEWS: LOL
bartolo.jpg
Bartolo Colon is scheduled to make another start in the minors on Sunday and his comeback is depending on two things: how he pitches & how Clayton Richard pitches. Which basicallly means he will be back up and be in the #5 slot real soon lol I’m not gonna sit here and say that im “happy” about his return but ANYTHING is better than what Clayton Richard thinks he’s doing so we will see about that. Well tommorow the Sox begin the 2nd half against Baltimore so here’s a look at the pitching matchups for this series, UNTIL NEXT TIME PEACE!
FRIDAY:
John Danks(7-6, 3.91 ERA)
VS.
Jason Berken(1-6, 5.87 ERA)

SATURDAY:
Mark Buerhle(9-3, 3.66 ERA)
VS.
Jeremy Guthrie(6-8, 5.35 ERA)

SUNDAY:
Jose Contreras(4-7, 4.54 ERA)
VS.
Brad Bergsen(6-3, 3.54 ERA)

GOOD TIMES ARE A ROLLIN’!!!!

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in as the White Sox extend their winning streak to 7 games and looking like they are prime & ready to properly defend their AL Central Title now. White Sox came into this game trying to crack the code named Zack Grienke who was 10-3 with an ERA around 2 and has simply dominated the Sox this season.
greinke.jpg
The Sox hopped on Greinke early as A.J. lead off the 2nd inning with his 9th homer of the season to make it an early 1-0 lead. Now usually this is where Grienke gets his mojo back and shuts us up for the rest of the game….but not this time. White Sox then scored on a error by Royals 2nd baseman Alberto Callaspo to make it 2-0. The Sox then played small ball the rest of the game to take a 5-0 winfutureace.jpg.
what can I say about Johnny Danks??? cuz it really looks like he’s getting back to his dominating self goin 7 1/3 innings giving up only 5 hits and ZERO runs to push his record back above .500 at 7-6 on the ’09 campaign.
OTHER NOTES:
quentin.jpg
Carlos Quentin was sent to triple a charlotte to begin his rehab assignment off the DL. The Sox don’t have a timetable for his return but it is rumored that he will be back after all -star break.
IN KENNY WE TRUST:
kennydub.jpg
Now that the Sox have won 7 in a row and if the Tigers lose tonight will be 1.5 games behind first place it looks like Kenny will be a buyer instead of a seller at the upcoming trade deadline. I know we need at least one more solid starter in the rotation so we can have a formibadle 4 man rotation. After Buerhle, Danks & Floyd you have Clayton Richard who is always shaky & even though Jose has been great of late he tends to be inconsitent and might make a major dip after the break. So i think bringing in a solid #4 guy would defitnley make things better. I don’t know who’s available but I know Kenny will be looking. Gavin Floyd will be on the bump for us in a afternoon game so hopefully we can extend that streak to 8. Unitl next time yall…PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

35 Days Til Opener, White Sox Real Talk’s Spring Training Notes

wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk, It’s 35 Days til my Sox open up the season against the Kansas City Royals, with the Bulls & Bears pissing me off the last 5 months I’m pretty glad baseball is only a month away. Before i get into my notes i just wanted to let Joe Crede know that he is now my enemy lol now if he wouldve signed anywhere else i wouldve been cool but by signing with one of my enemies(Cubs & Twins are my enemies if you didn’t know) the Twins I hope you bat .145 this year LOL

joe-crede.jpg

Now that’s out the way, let’s forget the past and talk about our 2009 White Sox, First Off let me say that I think the White Sox have a gem that will be VERY productive soon and thats Dayan Vicedo.

dayan.jpg
This guy in my Opinon could be a beast, he has a very powerful stroke and has looked pretty decent at 3rd base in Cactus league. Now personally I want this guy to be starting at 3rd on April 6th cuz I’m still not sold on Josh Fields. But Josh Fields is prolly gon be your 3rd base starter, but I bet you by June we will see Mr.Vicedo at 3rd.     Next topic up for discussion is the CF battle.

CF BATTLE: Brian Anderson Vs. Dwayne Wise

brian A.jpg
Now this is an interesting battle right here, I like both guys a LOT but I think that Brian Anderson will win this job. This guy has been nothing short of consisent, if you give this guy solid playing time who knows how good he can be. Dwayne Wise is a great player and one of my favs from last year, but I just don’t see him being a everyday CF but i can defintley see him platooning well of the bench.

SOUTHSIDE HITMEN:
alexei.jpg                                                      
carlos quentin.jpg      

These are the guys who will be our horses this year Alexei & Carlos, this is gonna be a year where all the lights will be on them. Last year no one and i mean NO ONE expected them to have the kind of seasons they did. Now after having a MVP season(Quentin) and a ROY season(Alexei) all eyez are expecting them to be even better. If they get even better than watch out.
Finally, the “experts” say we are going to finish 5TH IN THE CENTRAL??????? HOW DISRESPECTFUL CAN YOU BE???? WE ARE THE DEFENDING CENTRAL DIVISION CHAMPS AND THIS IS THE RESPECT WE GET???? Now i admit Cleveland is gonna be much better now that everyone is healthy & that they added DeRosa & Wood to their roster . And of course the damn Pirahnnas are always gonna be around but last??? c’mon WORSE THAN THE ROYALS????? but its cool we gonna shock them all. Until next time,
WHITE SOX REAL TALK….PEACE!!!!
