It’s a perfect time to get away from White Sox baseball.
After breaking the long losing streak to the Twins yesterday, the Sox went down today, 6-3. Not only couldn’t they touch a pitcher by the name of Anthony Swarzak, but they were beaten by an offense that boasted the likes of Jason Repko, Drew Butera, Rene Tosoni and Tsuyoshi Nishioka. That’s right, Justin Morneau, Jason Kubel, Delmon Young and Denard Span all were out of action and we still lost the series.
The good news is that our club is filled with good citizens. But right now, while we’re still at least mathematically in the division race, we need someone inside the clubhouse (other than Ozzie) to get tough with a team that has underachieved miserably all season. Frankly, when the Sox play teams like Detroit, Cleveland and Minnesota they look lifeless in comparison and are routinely outplayed in the fundamentals.
Somebody, please, step up with a wake up call. And how about we begin to turn things around vs. the Tigers on Friday? Because if our mindset doesn’t change soon, we’re sunk for sure.
