WHERE HAS THIS BEEN????

OK where the hell have these White Sox been???? lol I mean Seriously if we would’ve played like this on that damn road trip we wouldn’t be 7 games out right now. I mean this game was done in the 3rd inning, the runs started producing in the 2nd when Mark Kotsay finally got off the snide & hit a 2 run blast to right field. Then in the 3rd the Sox put up a 5 spot on Paul Byrd(or as Steve Stone called him, Kelsey Grammar lol). Every White Sox player that started got a hit & they then feasted on the Red Sox bullpen & eventually winning 12-2. Of course tho my evening was ruined anyway because those damn Tigers held off a Rays rally in Tampa Bay to win 4-3 & keep us 7 games back. But I really can’t get that mad because we have no one to blame but ourselves by going 3-8 in that 11 game road trip. Now we just gotta hope we get on a roll & that the Tigers hit a bump in the road. The Tigers have been pretty consistent the whole season so hopefully that wall isn’t far away lol. Now hopefully a lil home cooking will get the Sox to stir a nice winning streak like the one we had in late June, early July where we won 8 in a row. The only hope i can cling to right now is that we can be somewhere between 3-5 games of Detroit before the start of our 3 game series in late September at Da Cell. Hopefully that could setup a Division deciding series at Comerica Park in da D the 1st week of October.But maybe I’m just dreaming…..Maybe I’m just talking about stuff that isn’t realistic for this team, I dunno. What I do know is that this thing isn’t over until its over, I’ve seen weirder stuff happen in baseball, just gotta take it one game at a time, thats all we can do & hope the chips fall in place for us. The thing that keeps me from predicting a Southside comeback is these two things. One we are thee WORST defensive team in the American League & Secondly the bullpen. Pena, Dotel & Scott Linesuck have been HORRIBLE the last couple of weeks. The only reliable arm beside Bobby Jenks is Matt Thornton & you can’t keep throwing him out there everyday. But with all that being said…anything can happen with September baseball so we’ll see.

Aw yea also congrats to Freddy Garcia for picking up his 1st win since his comeback to the Sox, he has been looking real good with his last 2 starts hopefully he can continue to look good.
OTHER NEWS:
-Jake Peavy is still day to day with his elbow injury & Kenny says as long as we are still in the race that he will try to comeback this season. I wouldn’t get our hopes up tho….
Until next time yall this White Sox Real Talk…PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!

I personally think this was just a courtesy trade lol cuz i really don’t see how Kotsay helps this ballclub. He is WAYYYYYYYY past his prime but who knows sometimes the smallest trades make the biggest impacts(i.e. Geoff Blum) but the most important question is Kenny done?

or is this just the appetizer for the big fish he is realing in on Friday???? we will only wait to find out until later 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!!!
