We all know the strength of the White Sox was going to be their starting staff. So far, through 16 games it is playing out perfectly.
3 days ago, Mister perfect, Phil Humber joined a very exclusive club. If you don’t know what it is, pull you head out of the sand, unless you are an ostrich, then stay where you are.
BTW: Humber was awesome on David Letterman. He went toe to toe with the king of latenight, and held his own.
On Sunday, John Danks allowed 4 earned runs, but if the defense would have picked him up, it would have only been 2.
Monday, Jake Peavy twirled a complete game shutout against he A’s.
Not to be outdone, Gavin Floyd pitched into the 8th inning, allowing 1 run and 2 hits. He lost, but he looked great.
I had the opportunity to listen to the Sox postgame show a few days ago. One caller made it clear that he can’t stand Gavin Floyd, and wants him sent packing. I wonder what he thought tonight. There are very few pitchers as talented as Floyd, just ask the 29 other teams that would love to have him. I understand a fans passion, and it’s actually nice to hear.
Paul Konerko has 399 home runs. He has an outside chance of ending up with over 500. I know a lot of people will disagree, but I think he should be considered for the Hall of Fame.
Adam Dunn keeps cranking them out. Dunn has 3 bombs in the past 5 days. The Sox and their fans have to happy watching Dunn reclaim his swing. Jeff Manto has done a great job turning the guy around.
Anyone see the foul ball that was hit in the 2nd inning of Tuesday’s game? The A’s ballboy picked it up, and casually flipped it to a kid. The kid dropped it, and in the process spilled the 2 beers belonging to the people in the front row. The camera jerked away pretty quick, but it stayed on long enough to for me to catch the hilarious shot.
It might not have been funny if it was my beer….Ah, yeah it would.
I don’t know anything about Tom Milone, but the Nationals may regret giving that guy up. He paints the corner like a 10 year veteran. The Sox had no answer for that guy on Tuesday.
They did solve Bartolo Colon.
Remember how horrible Colon looked when he pitched on the South Side? He drank from the fountain of youth ’cause he looks downright nasty in Oakland. He doesn’t throw as had as he did earlier in his career, but he knows how to pitch now.
As of Tuesday night, the Sox, Indians and Tigers are tied for 1st in the Central. Quick, name 4 players with the Indians (Not Choo or Hafner–I’ll give you Cabrera).
I hope the Central race is tight all year.
Sox looking at a 5-1 road trip if they can beat the A’s in an afternoon game on Wednesday.
