A DAMN SHAME!

shame.jpg

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox real talk checkin back in, and I am sitting here at the good ‘ol laptop wondering what word to use that would describe what went down at Da Cell tonight ummm……..PATHETIC!!! After taking a combined 5 outta 7 from the Yankees & Angels then just look sorry against the bottom feeders of the AL Central the Cleveland Indians. There are a lot of reasons why the White Sox lost tonight, like bad pitching by Mark Buerhle(I will get to that young man later lol), Errors(3 of em tonight) & bad offense. I’m gonna fast foward to the most crucial part of the game which was in the 8th inning when we had the bases juiced with NO OUTS! and the turning point in this sequence to me was when the umpire made HORRIBLE call that he thought was strike 2 but was really ball 3 after that it was strikeout, popup, groundout, game.
MR.UNPERFECT

Ok i wanna know where who the hell is this & what did they do to Mark Buerhle????? Buerhls hasn’t been the same since that 5th inning that damn dome in Minnesota. He looked shaky again tonight giving up 5 runs in 7 innings. Because of this bad outing & other factors the Sox are now looking at a 3 game hole behind the Detroit Tigers who beat the Minnesota Twins tonight(who are slowly sinking. This years White Sox team reminds me of this guy:
rex.jpg
Now just throwing a disclaimer out before I move on, I hate this piece of crap & will hate him until my Bears win the Super Bowl, he is the reason my Bears didn’t win the title 3 years ago!!! ok now that I’m done with my venting  lol the Sox reminds me of him because of the “Good Rex, Bad Rex” thing , one day they take out the best the AL has to offer than lose to the piece of crap Indians. This needs to change FAST.
OTHER NOTES:
-Allegedly the White Sox have claimed Alex Rios off waivers from Toronto, I hope this rumor is true.
-Jake Peavy threw 50 pitches on his 2nd successful bullpen session.
Until next time yall PEACE!!!
PEAVY ON HIS STATUS:

SCOTTY PODS STRIKES THE HALOS!!

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in after yet another exciting White Sox walk-off winner over the Angels. The game started off with Jerry Reinsdorf starting the pre-game salute to Mark Buerhle to begin the “Mark Buerhle Appreciation Series” as he gave some nice framed pics to Buerhls & D-Wise.

So after that nice ceremony it was time for baseball & Bacon got it going in a very great way with his 6th homer of the season to give the Sox an early 1-0 lead. In the very next inning Carlos Quentin homered to give us a 2-0 lead. Then that’s where it got messy.
CONTRERAS’ WALKS:
coopcontreras.jpg
Jose continued his “Walk-a-thon” in the 3rd inning as he walked 3 batters & gave up 1 run on a wild pitch & 2 more runs on a single by Bobby Abreu to give up the lead 3-2. That’s when Ozzie decided it was time for Jose to see the shower as he took him out with only 2 & a third innings pitched  with 66 pitches thrown. This has been a HUGE problem for Jose lately & one that quickly needs to be fixed. Really it should have been a 5-0 W because of the fact that the Angels scored all 4 of their runs of walks. So in the 5th the Sox tied the game off a sac fly to make it 3-3. That didnt last long as Bobby Abreu drove in the go ahead run in the next inning off a Sac Fly.
BACON TO THE RESCUE….AGAIN
bacon.jpg
After a 2 Out double by Pods, Gordon Beckham striked AGAIN with a RBI single that tied the game at 4. The bullpen did a solid job as the combination of Carrasco, Randy Williams, Pena, Thornton & Dotel combined to only allow 1 run and held the game at 4 until the ninth. Thats when Pods delivered again, Jayson Nix got it started with a 2 Out double to put the winning run in scoring position.
angelslose.jpg
Thats when Pods blasted a a hit to give the White Sox a 5-4 win and cutting the Tigers divison lead to 1 game as they got hammered by the O’s 8-2(so much for Washburn lol)
OTHER NOTES:
Alexei Ramirez sat out again with his ankle injury but should return this weekend against the Indians.
-Bobby Jenks is going to have a procedure done to get rid of his Kidney Stones, its expected to be an Out Patient procedure but will miss a couple games to recover. GET WELL BIG FELLA!!
-Gordon Beckham won the AL’s Rookie Of The Month Award for July(Just a precursor until he wins the AL Rookie Of The Year Award)
Tomorrow night the Sox will hope for another solid performance from Gavin Floyd as he will take the mound against the Angel’s 3-0 rightie Sean O’Sullivan Until next time yall PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!

TIME TO KEEP IT REAL ON THE AL CENTRAL RACE!!

twinswin.jpg

OK…LET ME GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT I AM SICK OF THIS CRAP! Now last night was the tale of two games it went from “Can Buerhle get a perfect game AGAIN???” to “Damn we’re down 5-1 how did that happen??” I’m not gonna recap nothing today I’m just gonna talk about the most frustrating things of last night . The only good thing that happened last night was Buerhle retiring a ML record 45 batters in a row & then the classy Twins fans giving him a standing O.
45straight.jpg
Now after that he walks Casilla then gives up a hit to Denard Span with 2 OUTS!! so then Mauer hits flyball to left field and what happens???????? SCOTT PODSEDNIK BECAME ALFONSO SORIANO AND FORGOT HOW TO FIELD!!!!
podssori.jpg
Then Chris Getz does the most stupid thing ever in the 7th when he move to the right on a play that was easily a double play especially with JOE FREAKIN CREDE!!! but NOOOOOO CHRIS GETZ THINKS ITS A HIT & RUN BUT THE ONLY PROBLEM IS…….NO ONE’S RUNNING JACKASS!!!! Then before you know it there’s runners on 2nd & 3rd NO OUTS, base hit from Michael Cuddyer hits a single and “WOW…..WE’RE ACTUALLY LOSING?????”

REAL TALK:
ahlogowhitesox.jpg

Now I’m finna do what the title of my blog says give the Sox some REAL TALK! Now you’re SUPPOSED to win this division, you’re SUPPOSED to have the best pitching rotation in the division but if you don’t play a little thing called…….DEFENSE you are NOT gonna win this division. Now I am one of the fans who feels weird stuff happens in the dome but let’s be real people the Chicago White Sox are a TERRIBLE defensive team, outta the 9 runs the Twins have scored in the 1st two games we have GIVEN THEM 7 OF THOSE RUNS WITH OUR WEAK DEFENSE!!! and also stop the complaining man. The Twins are not the freaking(i really wanna say another word) Yankees of the 90’s!!! Every single time we go there we act like they are just UNBEATABLE NOOOOO IF YOU START PLAYING DEFENSE YOU CAN WIN!!! AND IF THEY THINK THAT THIS KINDA PLAY IS GONNA FLY AGAINST THE YANKEES???? STOP IT! WE WILL BE COOKED IF WE DON’T GET BETTER DEFENSIVELY!
WILL THE REAL CARLOS QUENTIN STAND UP?????
quentin.jpg
Now Carlos how can I say this……………..YOU CAN’T KEEP GOIN 0-4!! YOU HAVE LIKE 4 HITS SINCE BEING BACK! I KNOW YOU ARE HEALTHY AFTER MAKING THAT PAY IN DETROIT A COUPLE DAYS AGO SO WHERE’S THE OFFENSE???? The main question here is Carlos Quentin really the player he showed us last year??? or was that just a flash in the pan and he is really just a injury prone bum??? MAYBE THE DIAMONDBACKS KNEW SOMETHING WE DIDN’T???? NOW ALL I KNOW IS IF WE DON’T FIX ALL THIS WE HAVE NOOOOO CHANCE IN THIS DIVISION, UNTIL NEXT TIME PEACE!!…..GO BEARS!

burhlsperfect.jpg

This is ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin in with a very SPECIAL blog on Mark Buerhle’s perfect game!

My 1st reaction was “He aint gon get it” then the 9th came….and thats when Dewayne Wise saved the day


Whats funny is that i actually cheered louder for this catch than the actual perfect game lol then Alexei  threw out Jason Bartlett to get the perfect game.
burehlsbelief.jpg

And what was also great was that with that win & the Tiger’s loss to Seattle WE ARE NOW IN 1ST PLACE. And what also made this even more special was that he no hit the TAMPA BAY RAYS YEA THE AMERICAN LEAGUE CHAMPS!! That don’t happen everyday lol but until next time yall PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALL-STAR GAME RECAP & 2ND HALF PREVIEW!

chicago_u_obama01_576.jpg

Now I know why I voted for this man lol ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in after a GREAT all-star game & all-star events. Let’s start off with the first of the All-Star activites, the HR Derby. Now on paper it didn’t look that exciting and look like Albert Pujols was going to mop the floor with his opponents lol BUT thats why we play the game. We were treated to a great HR  flurry early between Prince Fielder & Nelson Cruz who both hit 11 homers in the 1st round, then The Machine Albert Pujols came out a little shaky but got the crowd into it when he hit 5 homers to get his self into a Swing Off with Carlos Pena & Joe Mauer and eventually won. He later got eliminated in the 2nd round by Ryan Howard but the final between Fielder & Cruz was just great as the Prince put on a show and won the derby. It was really good and showed people that you don’t need a lot of big names for a good derby to happen.
princef.jpg
Then it was time for the main event that we all came to see, The Mid-Summer Classic. AL came into this game winning the last 12 games against the NL and looked to have Home-Field advantage in the World Series once again. The festivites started when President Obama showed off his loyalty by rocking the Sox jacket when he threw out the 1st pitch to Albert Pujols.
soxbarack.jpg
So after the pitch the game started when the AL went up early and scored 2 runs on the NL’s Tim Lincecum. Then the Sox All-Star Mark Buerhle came in a did a great job by pitching a 1,2,3 inning and even got rid of Albert Pujols.
markal.jpg
The NL struck back when they took the 3-2 lead on a RBI double by Prince Fielder. The AL then tied the game off a Joe Mauer RBI double in the 5th at 3. It stayed that way all the way up until Curtis Granderson hit a triple and later scored off a Sac Fly by Baltimore Orioles CF Adam Jones to give the AL the 4-3 lead. It would stay that way as Mariano Rivera came in and got his 7th All-Star save for a AL win. But let me not forget to give the All-Star MVP Carl Crawford a big up on robbing the Rockies player(who i don’t know his name cuz i don’t watch Rockies Baseball lol) and basically saving the game for the good ‘ol American League.
allstarg.jpg
So now the game is over & AL has Home-Field advantage in the Fall Classic AGAIN. Hopefully my Sox will be there to use it, which brings me to my next  topic.
2ND HALF PREDICTION & THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR:
So now that the All-Star festivities are over it’s time to focus on the stretch run, where divisions are won, where the October puzzle comes together. Now one of the main questions for the South Siders is will Kenny Williams make a huge trade for a impact pitcher?? that question needs to be answered because if that 5th starter problem aint solved then we are in some deep s***. Also will Paulie be able to produce the same in the 2nd half as he did in the 1st? because we all know he doesn’t really put together 2 halfs of great baseball. Now we start off the 2nd half with a 7 game homestand against the Baltimore Orioles(who we should sweep) and then a 4 game set with our playoff opponents from last year, The Tampa Bay Rays. Now time for my 2nd half MLB predictions drumroll please lol………….
AL CENTRAL WINNER:
CHICAGO WHITE SOX

AL EAST WINNER:
BOSTON RED SOX

AL WEST WINNER:
LA ANGELS

AL WILD CARD WINNER:
NY YANKEES

SOX BEGIN FINAL 6 GAMES BEFORE BREAK, INDIANS AT CELL

soxcleveland.jpg

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
buerhls.jpg
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.
USCellular2.jpg
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.
twinkies.jpg
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.
ALL-STAR SNUBS!!!!
bobbyaj.jpg
snub.jpg
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!!! FANS SHOULDN’T EVEN BE ABLE TO VOTE MAN ITS JUST A DAMN POPULARITY CONTEST, SHOULD BE BOUT STATS!!!! ok im done lol until next time I’m White Sox Real Talk PEACE!! Aw yea Detroit loses to KC tonight so we gain some ground only 2 games outta 1st!!

SOX TAKE 2 OF 3 FROM REDS; 6 GAME HOMESTAND NEXT!

bobbyaj.jpg

Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in after a successful weekend series against the Reds of Cincinatti. White Sox came into this afternoon’s game after winning in a VERY sloppy manor in last night’s Civil Rights Game where they had 4 errors looking to take the rubber match in this series. Mark Buerhle was the story going in with his impressive 18-6 record in Interleague play and continued that hot streak today. No home Runs in this game as the Sox scored their first two runs in the 1st inning off a RBI single from A.J. and a fielders choice off a double play from Paulie. Dwise also scored a run off a double in the 9th. One great milestone did occur in this game when the Captain, Mr.Konerko scored his 1,000th career RBI in the 5th inning.
paulie.jpg
Bobby Jenks then came in the 9th and got his 17th save off the season(out of 19 tries) and the Sox got their 2nd straight win. Only bad news of the night is that the damn Tigers completed a sweep of the BrewCrew and kept the White Sox at 5 games behind in the Central.
da cell.jpg
Now the Sox will head home to Da Cell for 6 games where they will play round 2 of the Crosstown Classic against the wackest team in Chicago the Cubs lol(just another shot at you bums lol) but more bad news for my beloved lol the Sox are under .500 at home at 16-18 and will begin a 3 game set against the best ballclub in the Majors, The L.A. Dodgers. And we all remember the last 12 game homestand where we went 4-8 so we defintely need to pick it up at home.
OTHER NOTES:
-Jermaine Dye was scratched from the lineup this afternoon to give him 3 days off before the important Dodgers series starting on Tuesday.
ALSO CONGRATS TO MY MANS GORDON BECKHAM FOR HITTTING HIS 1ST MAJOR LEAGUE HR LAST NIGHT!!!

until next time….PEACE!!
