LETTER TO JIM THOME & JOSE CONTRERAS………

goodbye.jpg

Wuz good world & welcome to a farewell edition of White Sox Real Talk..Today I will pay tribute to two of the most classiest players to ever put on a White Sox uniform, Jim Thome & Jose Contreras. When I heard dis news last night I can’t really say I was shocked or upset. I was partial about it cuz I know it was time for them to go but at the same time these are guys who will definitively be missed. Now drumroll please for the tribute……………….
JIM THOME:
Now when we first got this guy I can’t lie that I wasn’t too happy because I was a huge Aaron Rowand fan but I knew he could help us, and boy did he. He always had a clutch homer, I remember his 500th home run against the Angels back in 2007. It was memorable because it was also a walk-off & it was one of the few highlights in a very bad season. But who can forget this……………………..

His VERY clutch home run against the Twins in the memorable Blackout game. I remember watching that game at home super nervous & when he hit that homer, I jumped up in pure joy. He was a very classy guy & fun to watch while he was here, I wish him the best & hope he gets his ring in Mannywood.

JOSE CONTRERAS:

Man who can forget Jose Contreras’s performance in the 2nd half of the 2005 season…LIGHTS OUT. He was simply phenomenal in the postseason going undefeated in all his starts. What was so so weird about Jose’s time here was he could be sooooo lights out one start & soooo horrible the next. Despite his horrible year with us this year you gotta respect how he came back from that injury last year.

Gotta respect him for that, cuz he didn’t have to come back. He could’ve just retired but he didnt. All in all these were guys who made great contributions to this organization but it was necessary to get rid of these guys. Wish em well tho

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:

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MY PICKS TO MAKE THE MLB PLAYOFFS

Wuz good this is White Sox Real Talk and im back with my Picks of who’s gonna make the playoffs, leave some comments and see if u agree. First in The American League:

AL EAST  DIVISION WINNER: TAMPA BAY RAYS, Now i pick them cuz these boys are just tough great hitting, great pitching and they play smart ball they remind me of my 2005 White Sox these boys have a never say die attitude, they will hold off the Red Sox.

 AL CENTRAL DIVISION WINNER:CHICAGO WHITE SOX, Now even tho my Sox have been struggling of late i still like our chances and Ozzie isnt gon let these guys just die. They have come WAY too far from last year to let this season go down in flames to the Twinkies so i got us taking it in the last week of the season  and finally give the Twins the Knockout Punch.

 AL WEST DIVISION WINNER: ANAHEIM ANGELS OF LOS ANGELES, No explantion needed why they are the first team in the Majors to clinch Great Power hitting, Great pitching and THEE BEST CLOSER IN THE MAJORS K-ROD!!!

 AL WILD CARD WINNER: BOSTON RED SOX, The world champs are gonna slide their way into the postseason even tho they’re not gonna win the east they are still gonna make major moves in the postseason as long as Josh Beckett can stay healthy.

NOW NATIONAL LEAGUE……

 NL EAST DIVISION WINNER:PHILADEPHIA PHILLIES, They will hold off the NY Mets no doubt in my mind NO ONE CAN STOP RYAN HOWARD RIGHT NOW ….NO ONE ENUFF SAID!!!

 NL CENTRAL DIVISION WINNER: CHICAGO CUBS, Now as much as I hate these ******** the Cubbies are having a great season and are giving Northsiders some hope that it might happen but they still gotta convince me that they can get the job done in  the postseason so it will be intersting to see.

 NL WEST DIVISION WINNER: LOS ANGELES DODGERS, Now before the trade deadline i thought they had NO CHANCE to beat out the D-Backs but then they got MANNY RAMIREZ and he has just been phenomnal batting.400 and just making that team much better.

 NL WILDCARD WINNER: MILWAUKEE BREWERS, Even though they have been jagging games in late innings and had a CRUSHING loss to the Cubbies last night i still like their chances better than the Mets i know both bullpens are bad but Brewers bullpen isnt as HORRIBLE as the Mets so they will get back to the postseason for first time since 1982. If Ben Sheets is Healthy they could make some noise.

SO THOSE ARE MY PICKS LEAVE COMMENTS TO LET  ME KNOW WHAT U THINK!!!
