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.
Alright here’s the part of the show where I get to ranting LOL drumroll please……………..WHY THE HELL ARE JD & BOBBY JENKS NOT GOING TO ST.LOUIS??? LETS BE REAL PEOPLE ANDREW BAILEY FROM OAKLAND SHOULD NOT BE AN ALL-STAR SURE THE 2.03 ERA IS NICE BUT ONLY 9 SAVES???? STOP IT! BOBBY JENKS HAS 19 SAVES, SURE HIS ERA IS ABOUT A RUN HIGHER BUT HE HAS ONLY 2 BLOWN SAVES COMPARED TO BAILEY’S 4 BLOWN SAVES…THE ONLY REASON HE IS ON THE ROSTER IS BECAUSE OF THAT B.S. ONE ALL-STAR PER TEAM RULE. IT SHOULD BE STRICTLY ABOUT STATS MAN! NOW ON TO JD, THE MAN IS DOIN IT PEOPLE YOU’VE GOT ICHIRO ON THERE JUST BECAUSE HIS WHOLE DAMN COUNTRY VOTED HIM IN, BESIDES BATTING AVERAGE HE IS NOT BEATING JD IN ANY MAJOR CATEGORY!!! JD IS BATTING .291, 20 HRS, 53 RBI’S A SLUG % OF .571 & A .364 OBS COMPARED TO ICHIRO’S 3 HRS, 20 RBI’S, STOP THE MADNESS NOW!!!
