I stayed up only because Bobby Jenks was on the mound.

He’s good.

What’s the inside word on Dustin Hermanson.. I saw that he wasn’t in there for Save… Just resting him for the postseason or is the injury more serious?

i had early classes wednesday morning but still managed to stay awak for the whole game.

scott, any word on whether or not the sox-twins game saturday morning will have a television home, or are we out of luck?

thanks!

ME ME ME. As I mentioned before, due to various reasons, I only make it to the ballpark 6 times a year or so, but I watch or listen to almost every game. Bobby Jenks is just incredibly exciting to watch.
Scott, does it affect the team to play in front of roughly 300 fans??

I was at the bar watching the game and saw it all the way until the finish. No AJ tonight?*****.

I was up to *listen* to the last pitch, via Rooney and Farmer.

WELL EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD SO FAR. THE ONLY BAD THING IS THAT MARTE IS OUT SO FAR AND THAT HERMANSON HAS A BACKACHE. WELL JUST GLAD WE ARE STARTING TO GET BACK ON TRACK. I WAS HAPPY WHEN WE LOST 3 GAMES AGAINST ANAHIME, DO U KNOW WHY? IT IS BECAUSE NOW OUR GUYS KNOW THAT THERE IS A TEAM THAT IS PREPAIRED IS GOING TO FACE THEM IN THE PLAY-OFFS. THAT WAY, NOW THEY ARE ANGRY SO THE NEXT TIME THEY WILL FACE ANAHIME THEY WILL CRUSH THEM. WELL MAYBE IT IS A CRAZY THOUGHT BUT I THINK THE FACT THAT WE LOST TO ANAHIME WAS GOOD FOR OUR GUYS….WELL I ALWAYS HOPE FOR THE BEST FOR MY BEST TEAM EVER. AND HEY MAYBE GUILLEN SHOULD TRY TO PUT URIBE IN THE SECONED OR EVEN THIRD PLACE FOR HITTING BECAUSE HE BEEN HOT THIS MONTH SO MAYBE HE WILL HELP US A LITTLE, ESPECIALLY THAT EVERETT IS NOT THAT HOT THESE DAYS.. WELL WE WILL WATCH THE GAME AND WE WILL SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN. GO WHITE SOX GOOOO

How about Crede?! 2 for 3 already with a double and a home run. I am so glad that everyone can now see how valuable he’s going to be to us down the stretch.

VERY NICE JOB . I AM WATCHING THE GAME AND SO FAR, WOW VERY NICE..CREDE HOMERED , IGUCHI HOMERED, EVERETT DOING GOOD,, SCOTTY IS ID GOOD, TOO ,, VERY NICE….

Unbelievable. I am speechless. We have a 5 game lead, and now its gotten to the point where we need to do a little soul searching- dig deep and find whatever it is we need to find to make the final push to the post season. We all stand behind our team with full confidence because we’ve seen all year the great play we’re capable of- its just time to really DO IT. The White Sox always amaze me with their “grinder ball” style of play- and most of all thier HEART. Lets go White Sox, its starts tomorrow- theres no time to look back now, do it becasue you deserve it!

You have got to be kidding me! On a day that it’s announced that Ozzie is upset with an injured pitcher, Hermanson stays in there to lose the game? Am I on crazy pills? Do we not have a healthy pitcher who can throw over 100mph and has one of the nastiest 12-6 curves i’ve seen? I’m so angry now that I don’t even know what else to say. White Sox fans, Jenks is our closer. How can we go into the playoffs with a closer that has a bad back?
The Sox have done too much this year to give it all away now. I’m not giving up, but come on, don’t the fans deserve to see our team play at its full potential? Especially with Cleveland right on our tail.

I AGREE WITH BCONRAD. WE REALLY DESERVE TO GO TO THE PLAY-OFFS, BUT THE SOX ARE LOOKING BACK , WHICH THEY SHOULD NOT. THEY SHOULD LOOK AHEAD AND FOCUSE ON THEIR GAMES AND WIN SOME GAMES , NOT JUST FOR ME BUT FOR ALL THEIR FANS IN CHICAGO WHO ARE WAITING TO SEE THE BIG DREAM COME TRUE. I AM SPEECHLESS AS WELL. THE THING IS THAT WE CAN’T BLAME HERMANSON FOR BLOWING THE GAME, BUT WE CAN BLAME GUILLEN FOR NOT taking him OUT AFTER HE ALLOWED THE FIRST TWO SINGLES. HERMANSON IS A GREAT CLOSER BUT TODAY JUST WASN’T HIS DAY. ANYWAYS, WE CAN’t do anything to todays game, but we can do something tommorow and next week. we should not panic now , we r almost there so lets go guys ,, i know WE CAN DO IT..

So I bought a Sox home jersey(plain) and am waiting until the end of the year to decide whos # and name to put on the back. Leading candidate right now is Jenks, but if the Sox keep this **** up, Im going to keep drinking too many brews, and I’ll have the same build when the 45 goes on there.
I was watching FSN and saw a show where they had a bunch of MLB guys miked up, and one shot was Rowand standing in the outfield talking to Burnitz(or Hollandsworth?) about how Chicago is the Cubs town no matter what the Sox do. Well, thats just BS, you cant believe what you see on tv all the time. Even if they are trying give the respect they earned citywide this season back right now. The tribune and the Cubs are very similar to Fox news and the republican right. Very biased without equal representation.

Tonights game: I went and got something to eat and came back to see that the Sox lost. owch. That hurts my heart. Hermanson’s back, Marte’s pain in the neck, inconsistent bats. I cant believe it. It was before my time, but I dont think the Mets played as good as the Tribe are, and the Sox arent nearly as bad as the Cubs played down the stretch way back when, but brace yourselves for the comparisons. The Cubune is going to feast on that if they catch us or pass us next week. And to think I was dreaming of a world series. sheesh. I still think my preseason prediction of a Sox Padres series can go down, but man is my stomach doing flip flops right now.

o.k. guys, here it is. garcia was left in too long, but that’s how ozzie has managed all year. new ways to lose on any given night! hermie was o.k. except that he started each hitter in the hole and had to come up with his pitches which lead to four consecutive. it all happened so fast there wasn’t time to bring in jenks. in any event, he pitched the day before and needed the rest. that’s the way ozzie has managed all year. todays prediction.. they hit some good pitches. sometimes that happens (mark, on why he was hit so hard in todays upcoming game). what i don’t like is the cavalier attitude that i’ve been hearing for the past month and half. if we really are as good as ozzie insists, then prove it. take the game(s). no one is going to give them to us. it’s put up or shut up time guys.
j.k. in tucson…out

what the heck happened last night?! whatever it was needs to improve. how the heck are we going to make it to the playoffs and the world series if we keep this up? i’ve been a diehard fan since conception and when the sox were down, i still cheered for them. and now that a miracle happened this season, i can’t stand to see them lose like this. this is a travesty and the only thing that us fans can do is stick by them no matter what and offer encouragement. the team is good and always is, but whatever is going on with them needs help. my theory is this: they need to win these next games before they play cleveland. that is the rival right now. then they need to blow cleveland away. as long as they can do that and cleveland keeps the yankees away, i know that this will be the year that the white sox prevail. the sox will win this year in the world series. this, my friends, it the year of the sox!

this team is spineless.

THE GOOD: The offense in the top of the third is a glimpse of what can happen when we play up to our potential. Good to see Carl swinging.
THE BAD: The pitching. Freddy should start the 2nd inning cause he’s atrocious in the 1st. Dustin, well that was an awe-inspiring melt-down of monumental proportions the likes of which I never hope to witness again.

THE UGLY: Three errors by corner outfielders! Scotty, it’s allright not to catch an occasional flyball, but why are you joggin after it (you’ve got a bit of speed in them legs last time I checked). You let him run the bases like a carousel! And Jermaine looked like he was auditioning to be the Chicago Fire’s backup goalie. Stop the insanity! Please!

I’m not sure what’s going on in the locker room but I sincerely hope these Sox get a tongue-lashing from Ozzie. I know he’s very capable of spewing fire (Magglio, Jeff Brantley, Buck Showalter). I think it’s high time some of that Venzuelan vitriol be directed at those most worthy of it. This team needs to be woken up. This is embarrasing to the fans, demoralizing to the city, and a 6 game losing streak away from being one of the most severe collapse jobs in MLB history. Grab the bull by the horn Ozzie! I want my team back.

Disappointing to say the least.
I’m glad I wasn’t able to post last night…it would’ve been ugly. It’s hard to be a fan anymore with these overpaid prima donnas that could give a **** if they win or lose. I’ve been a Sox fan all my life. My grandfather forbid me to be a Cubs fan. He was a lifelong Sox fan, even stayed with them after the Black Sox scandal. Imagine the heartbreak of a ten year old when your heroes throw the Series. I’m glad he’s not around to see this collapse. Kinda makes you wonder what’s going on here.

The Sox will never be a winner until they get rid of Ozzie. He’s made some of the worst managerial decisions I have ever seen.

I am from IL butlive in Montana and catch most of the games on XM radio when not on TV. After last night I decided am through with the torture. Good luck with the fickle fan base in Chicago after this monumental collapse. It’s over.

My prediction: Cleveland wins the division by three games
