Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in after my Sox avoid a 4 game sweep at the hands of the Tigers. Basically everything that happened in this game happened in the 1st inning lol The Sox pounced on Adam Porcello right out the gate on a failed double play attempt that gave us the early 2-0 lead then with Thome on 1st base Paulie hit his 20th homer of the season to give us a 4-0 lead(Paulie has yet to have a cold streak this is VERY good) then the youngest Gun Gordon Beckham followed a couple batters later with his 4th homer of the season to make it 5-0.

What can I say about this kid here ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ lol I mean he is a tough code to crack, one day he is HORRIBLE the next he is fantatstic, in his two starts this week he has pitched a combined 16 innings(two 8 inning outings for you dummies lol) and has given up a combined 2 runs. Now the main question is has Clayton really turned the corner for good or his he just pitching well because he knows his job is on the line????? I don’ know but his showings have definitely made this 5th starter debacle even bigger, should the Sox ride his hot hand & put Colon in the pen or let Colon pitch & throw Clayton in the pen????? I don’t know the answers to these questions but it also poses the question “Could Clayton’s dominance put us in the Halladay race???” Could he be the bait that reels in the AL’s best pitcher to the Southside??

The funniest image of the night was when ESPN showed Kenny WIlliams in the press box on his laptop with headphones on lol two questions came to mind….1 was what the hell is Kenny listening to???? & 2nd what GM is he having a convo with on AIM lmao!!! cuz you know he just wasn’t chillin with his Itunes playlist blasting lol thats not Kenny Williams. Now I’m happy that we won but still nervous because we head to the dreaded dome tommorow night. Last time we were thee before the breake we blew the 1st game, barely won the 2nd & Buerhle got thrashed in the finale. Weird things happen in that dome & even though the Twins have been playing horrible as of late they would like nothing more than to come home to a frenzied crowd & feast on some White Sox.

Johnny Danks returns to the rotation tommorow & just at the right time, he will be followed by Mark Buerhle & Bartolo Colon. If we don’t play well we are gonna be looking at a very dark road with the Yankees & Angels coming to our hous this weekend. Pennant Race is defintley in full swing until next time tho this is White Sox Real Talk PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!

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 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!
