A Little Bit of Hope is a Good Thing

Winning a series might not seem like much, but it’s the first time the White Sox have accomplished the feat since early April when they did it against Tampa Bay. And the way the South Siders won today–with three runs in the top of the 10th to outlast the 
Mariners–is convincing enough for me to return to the blog after a much-needed week’s absence.

Believe me, as a Sox fan dating back to the 1950s, I’ve seen my share of hapless teams.
This year’s Sox, however, are not one of those dreadful ballclubs. That’s why this horrendous few weeks, filled with a non-existent offense, inconsistent pitching and shoddy defense, has been so alarming. No one in baseball has been able to figure it out.
Hopefully the last two games are the start of the turnaround. It won’t be easy with the Angels and A’s on the horizon, but I’m feeling a whole lot better than I did a week ago.
 Despite a sore wrist, Paulie enjoyed a 5 for 5 day as the Sox downed the 
 Mariners, 5-2.

P.S. — Thanks to all those who weighed in and encouraged me to make a speedy return.

    Nice to have you back.

    Nice also, to have a little bit of reason to have faith in the ballclub again.

    It’s one thing when you lose because you have the weaker team (my brother is a huge Jays fan and given that they have essentially been playing with 75% of their AAA lineup, he’s not that alarmed by their current win/loss situation), but we have a good group. That’s definitely part of what has been so frustrating about this season.
