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 checking in after a pretty entertaining HR derby at Da Cell last night. The game started off with Mark Buerhle on the mound trying to win his 9th game of the season. Grady Sizemore kicked it off early with his 1st of 2 homers of the night for a 1-0 Indians lead. In the 2nd Paulie hit his 1st HR of 3 to tie it at 1. Buerhle struggled a lil bit to give up 2 more runs and a 3-1 lead. Then the Sox offense woke up after 2 singles by Alexei & JD then a walk sent Jim Thome to 1st to load the bases for Paulie.
Thats when Paulie struck…AGAIN to hit a grand slam to left field to give the White Sox a 5-3 lead and his 2nd homer of the evening. Then the aerial show continued in the 7th inning when Alexei Ramirez continued his hot streak by hitting a 2-run homer his 11th of the season to make it a 7-3 lead.
Then Paulie struck….AGAIN in the seventh as he hit home run number 3 of the night!!! to make it a 10-3 lead and basically sealed the game for the Southsiders.
So the Sox went on to win 10-6 and start off this quick homestand on the right foot. TRADE RUMORS:
Now once again there is another rumor about an Ace joining the Sox pitching rotation. Now some reports are saying that Kenny is trying to bring Roy Halladay to the Southside. Now with all that being said I don’t believe it, first off Halladay has a no-trade clause & you know that Toronto is goin to want alot including this man:
Now I really like Halladay and all that good stuff but I’m not trading Bacon for a 32 year old pitcher…just aint happening. Especially the way he has been swinging the bat he is gonna be a stud real soon. Now there are also reports that their will NOT be any big name trades for the Sox due to the economy & the slumping attendance at Sox games. According to Kenny Williams that would be the reason why no deals get made, but we will see. Until next time yall…PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in as the White Sox began a 7 game roadie in Cleveland. Coming into this game the Sox have won 2 straight games and 6 of their last 8 games and also evening their home record to .500 at 20-20, they also had a chance to get their overall record to .500 too with a W against the Indians. The White Sox went up early 2-0 in this game when Gordon Beckham hit a RBI single in the 2nd to score Chris Getz. This was the start of a great game for “Bacon” as he went 3 for 3 with 2 RBI’s.
The Indians didnt’t get any offense rolling until the 9th inning where they got 3 runs off Matt Thornton but Gavin Floyd continued his hot streak as he was untouchable again pitching 8.5 innings and giving up 0 runs.
Things got quite funny in the 7th inning as Indians manager Eric Wedge got ejected after arguing a call with the bases loaded when one of the Indians were called out on what he thought was a foul ball.
Things got a lil chippy as new Indians pitcher Chris Perez started throwing some wild pitches that hit Alexei & JD pretty good but fortunately wasn’t that bad.
The Sox then went on to win 6-3 winning their third straight and are on their way to cutting the Tigers division lead to 4 games as they are getting routed 7-1 in the 8th inning to Oakland, now barring a miraclous comeback the sky is starting to get brighter for my Sox. OTHER NOTES:
i’m super excited that my Sox complete history will be here tommorow i can’t wait to check it out look out for a blog on the DVD tommorow evening before the game.
UNITL NEXT TIME YALL….PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Crosstown Classic is FINALLY here!!!!!!!! Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in with yall after an exciting Sox win. Now the reason I started this blog off with the statement “The Crosstown Classic is finally here” is because despite the fact that we played a series against the Cubs last week the excitement was never really there. I think the reason for that was that Sox/Cubs Round 1 Wrigley was a mid-week series and it took away a lil bit of its luster. But the excitement has been there this weekend baby, in the 1st game of this series the Cubs won(or the umpires won depending on who you talk too lol) a close game 5-4 in a thrilling game but today was the best game of the year between the two clubs. Coming into the game we were expecting a huge pitchers duel between Mark Buerhle & Ryan Dempster but what we got was a back in forth classic. The game started off early when the Sox got on top quickly with a 1-0 lead off a RBI Double by my favorite MLB player Jermaine Dye. Then Scotty Pods started off hot again(I will break down his performance later) extending the Sox lead to 2-0.ERRORS:
Errors was one of the mini sub plots of this game as Alexei Ramirez basically gave the Cubs 2 runs off his two errors(his 9th & 10th errors of the season by the way) Gordon Beckham also had 2 errors but he is a rookie so he get’s a pass but not Alexei he knows better. So fast foward to the 8th when Alexei redeemed his self a lil bit with his RBI single to tie the game at 7-7. Then on a 2-2 count with 2 outs and runners 1st & 2nd the rookie stepped up to the plate and won the game for my Southsiders & was mobbed at second base by his teammates.
SCOTTY PODS 4 ALL-STAR!!!!!!!!!
Scotty Pods is having a one of those “Renaissance years” as Shaq likes to call it lol batting well over .300 while going 4 for 5 yesteday with a HR. He has more RBI’s than Milton Bradley who unlike Pods has been playing the whole year. All in all a great win for the Sox as they also gained some ground with the Tigers losing to Houston for the 2nd straight game. Until next time yall….PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!
