Sox Skid Reaches 5, Will Try Again Tonight


Trust me, I’m trying.
In all my years of being a White Sox fan, believe me, I’ve been here before. But it never gets any easier and when you’re in the throes of this kind of losing streak it seems like it’s never going to end.
I’m a firm believer in hitting being contagious, both positively and negatively, and the Sox are currently making my point. It seems that everyone’s in a slump. And facing Jerod Weaver, Dan Haren and David Price hasn’t helped.
All we can do is drag out the old cliches–It’s Baseball, It’s a long season, It’s early–wait it out and hope we turn it around before the Tribe clinches the A.L. Central.
More Bad News: If the loss to the Rays and the five-game losing streak aren’t bad enough, the Sox suffered another huge blow last night. Jake Peavy, making a rehab start for Birmingham, left the game with “discomfort” after throwing just 15 pitches. This was supposed to be his second to last minor league start before joining the Sox at the end of April. Now, it’s anyone’s guess when he’ll return to the majors.

    Yeah, unfortunately the “hitting disease” seems to be travelling around the Tampa dugout these days. Someone needs to start fraternizing with the enemy and see if they can catch what’s going around.

    And, if they wanted to swing by the Angels’ and Rangers’ bullpen and pick up some of that, too, I wouldn’t complain.

    I am trying very hard to stick with my non-overreacting plan that I have going on. But, I think that I am going to have to tattoo that quotation on my forehead.
