That’s when trouble hit as he allowed 2 hits then walked a third & loaded the bases with no outs. The Indians put up a 4 spot in that inning highlighted by a 2 RBI single by Jamie Carroll which gave them the lead and they would not look back. Tony Pena then came in looking to keep it a 1 run lead but unlike his previous outings this week things didn’t go so well. He gave up another one then in the 7th struggling Scott Linebrink gave up a homer to Jamie Carroll to make it a 6-3 Tribe lead.
WEST COAST RIDING:
Now the reason I have this pic up is because everytime I think of the West Coast I always think of two of my favorite artists Tupac & Snoop lol but anyway the Sox get ready to head back on the road & try to right the ship with 3 games against a Mariners team who is fighting for a wild card spot(they are 5.5 games out) & also to Oakland(another place where we traditionally never played well) to play the Pathetics lol. Here is the pitching preview for the Mariners series.
Gavin Floyd(9-6 3.91 ERA)
Lucas French(2-2 3.93 ERA)
Sidenotes:Gavin will look to win his 10th game of the season and continue his 8 game streak of quality starts but he is 1-2 with a 7.15 ERA(4 total starts) lifetime against the Seattle Mariners. On the other side Lucas French will make his Mariner debut after getting traded by the Tigers.
John Danks(9-8 4.23 ERA)
Doug Fishter(0-0, 0.00 ERA)
Sidenotes: Johnny Danks will look to bounce back from his effort on Thursday where he gave up 6 runs in 7 innings.
Mark Buerhle(11-6 3.89 ERA)
Felix Hernandez(12-4 2.84 ERA)
Sidenotes: Buerhls will look to FINALLY get back on the winning side of things as he hasn’t looked the same since the 5th inning in Minnesota two weeks ago, while on the other side Seattle’s King Felix will continue his great season and try to get his 13th win of the season.
-With Jose Contreras struggling again & fat boy Colon missing again former WS hero Freddy Garcia might be coming to the rescue. While Ozzie said that he doubt’s that he will but that Freddy has been pitching great. The Sox won’t need the a 5th starter until the 18th at home against the Royals so we have some time before we find out.
-Still no news on the Alex Rios rumor but we will know for a fact on Tuesday whether on not the Sox claimed him.
-And last but certainly not least Jake Peavy had another successful bullpen session yesterday & will make his 1st minor league rehab start on Thursday and some people are saying that he could be starting as early as Aug.23rd, I hope so Hurry up Jake we REALLY need you buddy!! Until next time yall this White Sox Real Talk signing off PEACE!!!!!!!!!!
Mark Buerhle(11-5 3.79 ERA)
Jeremy Sowers(3-7 4.97 ERA)
let’s see if Mr.Perfect can get back on track after a horrible outing last sunday against the Yankees & also his meltdown against the Twins two weeks ago.
Carl Pavano(9-8 5.37 ERA)
This will be the 2nd 5th starter spot of the month & its looking like it will be Carlos Torres starting.
Jose Contreras(4-10 4.95 ERA)
David Huff(5-6 6.81 ERA)
This is probably gonna be Jose’s last chance if he doesn’t wanna get kicked out of the rotation, he hasn’t had any problems giving up runs but has walked almost everyone he’s faced.
I now have some real good news to report on the Jake Peavy front, according to espnchicago.com Jake Peavy will throw a side session for Don Cooper on Saturday & if everything goes as well as planned then he will begin his rehab stints in the minors with probable starts on Aug.13th, 18th & 23rd and if everything goes well he will make his 1st start with the White Sox in Yankee Stadium on August 28th.
–Alexei Ramirez should be back in the lineup tomorrow night
until next time yall PEACE!!!!!
I know this is like 2 days late but this was just so cool to see lol enjoy
BACON FOR ROY!!!
John Lackey(7-4 4.00 ERA)
Jose Contreras(4-10 4.80 ERA)
Sean O’Sullivan(3-0 3.75 ERA)
Gavin Floyd(8-6 4.07 ERA)
Ervin Santana(3-6 7.31 ERA)
John Danks(9-7 4.00 ERA)
Now after this series the road gets a lil less rocky for my Sox as we have a 15 game stretch against teams we should beat & some potential sweeps like Cleveland, & KC before we head to Boston & The Bronx to play the beasts of the AL East which brings me to my next topic.
New Sox pitcher Jake Peavy was introduced to the media yesterday before the Sox 14-4 rout of the Yankees & today he threw off the mound for the 1st time since the beginning of June and threw 50 pitches a look a lil good. He is still scheduled to return either in the Boston series at the end of the month or the makeup game against the Cubs on Sept.3rd but until next time yall PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!
REASONS WHY IT CAN HELP THIS YEAR……
–1st off the White Sox have the best medical staff in the majors…just look at how fast Jose Contreras came back
-Jake Peavy said he could’ve pitched in San Diego in August but they were gonna shut him down because they were out of the NL West race.
-We have 4 off days in August which means we only need our 5th starter 3 times in that month.
-He will be back for the most important month of the regular season, September & thats when we play clutch sereis against NY, Boston on the road & the last two weeks of the season we play Detroit twice & Minnesota once AT HOME, and can you imagine the ground we can ground if we are down a couple games & if we are up a couple games with Peavy we can close the casket on them ******** lol
-And we all know that Detroit isn’t good enough to run away with it in august
-If we get in the playoffs we will have the best 4 man rotation in the American League PERIOD
Peavy,Buerhle,Danks,Floyd and anything can happen.
Now sure we gave up 4 pitchers for him but let’s be real yea Clayton Richard was great his last two starts but the man is hot garbage lol I have been preaching that for the last year on this blog & sure I’m a lil down that we had to give up Aaron Poreda but if that’s what I gotta give up to get a former CY Young pitcher in HIS PRIME & 27 YEARS OLD FOR 3 MORE YEARS AFTER THIS….I’LL TAKE IT
WHO WILL PITCH 5TH FOR THE 3 AUGUST STARTS????
WHEN I THINK PEAVY WILL MAKE HIS 1ST START…..
Now I think he will make his 1st start September 3rd, Wrigley Field in the makeup game agianst the Cubbies lol wouldn’t that make for a great drama???? The rivalry is already a heated one but to have Peavy have his 1st start against the team that REALLY wanted him lol WHO’S MAD NOW CUBBIES??? LOL UNTIL NEXT TIME YALL PEACE!!!!!
