I am optimistic in spite of everything. I know we have the talent..we just have to get a spark. Sometimes people need a challenge along the way, and we are facing it. Odd thing is, although I’d be highly disappointed if we didn’t win the division…it’s been a helluva year and I’ve enjoyed the entire ride. GO SOX!!!!

well said dbrusa! go sox!!!
j.k. in tucson, out…

SEE GUYS , I TOLD YOU NEVER GIVE UP. WE DID IT IN 10 BUT IT STILL A WIN,,, IT WAS A GREAT GAME BY GARLAND AND I WAS SAD FOR HIM THAT HE DIDN’T GET TEH WIN. BUT STILL OUR SOX DID A GOOD JOB TONIGHT….AND THANK YOU GUYS FOR SUPPORTING OUR GREAT TEAM…..I LOVE IT THAT WE NOW GOT A CHALLENGE, AND GUESS WHAT , EVEN IF WE DON’T GET THE DIVISION AND WE GO TO THE PLAY-OFFS JUST BY THE WILD CARD, I WILL BE HAPPY BECAUSE WE WON’T PLAY THE ANGELS OR THE A’s , AND I THINK THAT IS BETTER, BUT WE ALSO LIKE TO GET THE DIVISION TITLE, SO WE STUCK, LOL.

HEY I AM GLAD THAT MARTE IS BACK AGAIN AND I AM REALLY HAPPY THAT THINGS ARE ALRIGHT AGAIN, I HOPE THAT HE WILL HELP US ALONG THE WAY…..

That was a good win tonight! Keep on keepin’ on! We’re gettin there….through thick and thin!!

How awesome is Bobby Jenks??? Two outs..blows a 99 mph strike 2 on the guy…and how do you follow that up?? With a 100 MPH heater!!!! swinging strike 3 and makes him look silly…I love it. Way to go guys!!!

THE WHITE SOX DID AWSOME TONIGHT AND BELIEVE ME IF THEY KEEP PLAYING LIKE THAT THEY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CREDE IS COMING BACK STRONGER THAN BEFORE, HE IS SWINGING THE BAT VERY VERY WELL. I THINK SCOTT PODSEDNIK IS OUT OF SPEED, THAY COUGHT HIM STEALINH TONIGHT TOO. HE EITHER SHOULD RUN FASTER OR JUST DON’T RUN. THEY COUGHT HIM SO MANY TIMES, BUT STILL HE IS A GREAT PLAYER ON THE FIELD AND AT THE PLATE. AND ACTULLY I HOPE THAT SCOTT GETS A HOMERUN THIS SEASON AT LEAST ONE, BECAUSE 0 GIVES A BAD FEELING TO ME,LOL. WELL IT IS NICE TO SEE OUR GUYS BACK AND I AM GLAD THEY ARE BACK!!! GO-GO-WHITE SOX!!! MANAR ALBAROUDI

Hey manasua,

I’m glad that you’re enthusiastic, but how about laying off the CAPS LOCK key??

THANK (sorry) you Jon Garland, thank you. Marte, that is called the road towards redemption. Keep it going fellas. Can’t see you today but will be driving around some corn fields in Iowa trying to pick up Rooney and Farmer. Golden opportunity to hear a master at work. Stick it to Santana!

Ok, where is McCarthy?

You almost feel bad for Orlando. something is obliviously wrong but what’s Ozzie supposed to do? he’s given him plenty of opportunity to get it right and he just keeps going out there and laying an egg. we don’t have the luxury to see anymore more encores from Orlando Hernandez. todays loss wasn’t a shocker, so forget about it Sox, we need to take this series. we gotta get after Lohse from the get-go tomorrow. He’s no good but seems to have our number this year.

I’m sorry, but I just don’t see why we continue to see Hernandez starting…we can’t afford anything less than a pitcher who can give us a good to excellent chance to win. Facing Santana means very little offense, so we needed someone to keep the game close…lately, that’s NOT Hernandez.

YOU KNOW WHAT, WE I THINK WE SHOULD SKIP ORLANDO FOR A COUPLE GAMES, AND NOT GARCIA. GARIA HAD SOME TOUGH TIME, BUT HE IS DIFINATLLY BETTER THAN ORLANDO. ORLANDO IS HAVING SOME SERIOUS PROBLEMS LATELY, HE SHOULD BE GIVEN SOME REST. AND COME ON, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OFFENSE, 16 STRIKE OUT IN JUST ONE GAME, AND SO WHAT IF WE FACING SANTANA. THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM THAT OZZIE SHOULD FIND THE SOLUTION TO AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE NOW R JUST 3 1/2 GAMES AHEAD AND BELIEVE ME NOW WE HAVE A BIG CHANCE OF NOT GOING TO THE PLAY-OFFS, SO GUYS COME ON GET ON FIRE A LITTLE BET. WELL I AM STILL HOPING THAT WE WIN THE FINALE SO WE’LL WAIT,, AND GO SOX… MANAR ALBAROUDI

yeah, if orlando would have just given up just one run we could have lost by less…
hard to win when you don’t score… hard to score agianst johan… nothing new. Hopefully it’s different next week at the cell. I’ll be at that game. Trying to get out of work so i can get to one of the games against the tribe too… hopefully they’ll lose a game or two eventually and help us out.

let’s hope jose can keep his current hot streak going tomorrow and get back home and take the series against the tribe.

cmon sox… let’s see some more of that central magic to finish off the year.

Scott and everyone else –

This is white-flag time!! The odds are against us. I mean, come on!! We have been putting the same players out there all year and they are falling apart! Lose 2 to KC and get shut down by Santana – this late in the year? OH!!! I gotta lie down. This is too much. Who on this site can honestly say that they aren’t terrified of Cleveland right now, tying us for 1st or even taking over 1st…in the CELL??!! How dare us talk about playoff tickets now!! It was a good ploy to force those who bought tix to apply them towards season tix next year, because if we choke, the Cell is gonna be deserted next year except for those season tix holders! This is going to haunt us for a long time, Sox fans. I don’t mean to bring everyone down, but heck if I am going to suffer alone! We need a miracle!!

By the way, GO SOX!!!

HEY MREIFER, IT IS GOOD TO THAT YOU REMEMBERED TO SAY ‘GO SOX’ BECAUSE I THOUGHT U WERE AN INDIAN FAN FOR A SECOND. U SOUND SO NEGATIVE, DON’T THINK LIKE THAT OR U GONNA HURT UR SELF… STOP THINKING ABOUT IT THAT WAY, JUST HOPE FOR THE BEST. WE ALL ARE AFRAID OF WHAT’S GOING ON NOW , BUT WE ARE WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. HOPEFULLY OUR PLAYERS WILL REALIZE THE SITUATION THEY ARE IN RIGHT NOW, AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL DO SOON. AND MAYBE OZZIE SHOULD TRY SOME OF THE NEW GUYS HE GOT THERE,, HE HAS SOME GOOD PLAYERS THAT HE IS NOT USING, WHAT IS HE SAVING THEM FOR. HE GOT BORCHARD WHO I BELIEVE IS A VERY VERY GOOD PLAYER, SO MAYBE HE SHOULD HIM A SHOT U KNOW. WELL LETS SEE WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL SEE CONTRERAS CONTINUING HIS HOT STREAK, HE IS THE BEST PITCHER LATELY, SO LET’S HOPE FOR THE BEST AND SEE WHAT OUR GUYS GONNA DO TOMMOROW,, AND COME ON GUYS LETS GET HOT AND LETS KICK SOME *****, AND FINALLY ,,GO GO WHITE SOX\. MANAR ALBAROUDI

Ah, to be blindly optimistic…Im through hoping, praying, sending players good vibes via telekinesis etc. It’s time to get pragmatic. First, today’s game isn’t neccessarily a must-win numerically, but it’s a have-to-win for this team’s morale and confidence. The must-win games come against Cleveland. We slap them in the mouth and take the series, we’re still in control. Second, what happened to this fabled intangible known as “chemistry”? I would take the Rainbow Coalition, tag-team tandem of Milton Bradley and Jeff Kent in a package deal right now if either could drive a run in with the bases loaded and no outs. To have chemistry you need a catalyst and nobody’s providing that kind of spark right now. Bottom line: win, lose or draw today, I think the best thing this team can do is have a good ol’ fashioned drunkfest on the plane ride home. If for no other reason then to loosen up and laugh at this misfortune. I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen this team smile and have a good time. The first part of the season had our boys looking like they were playing a game; carefree and full of energy. Now they look like me on a Monday morning, dragging myself to my boring job out of obligation, and anxiously awaiting my next vacation.

Hey Palehoses –

I guess the question is what came first the chicken or the egg?? In other words, of course they had fun and looked like a bunch of carefree college boys – THEY WERE WINNING!! Now, they are losing, so, I guess, that makes them look like, well, losers. I don’t know about you and the rest of us SOX fans, but I am physically sick watching this happen. Thankfully, I don’t live in town and won’t hear the Cub fans’ derision (although, we always have good ole Bartman!). However, I am very afraid of our future, if we blow this. How can I justify driving myself insane for this team in the future, when they hand me a load of **** like this? I am sure others think like me and this will cause ticket sales to plummet, trades of good players, etc. This team cannot survive this monumental breakdown. We aren’t like the Yankees who can bounce back the next year. This is “win or DIE trying” year – literally. Go Sox!!

Hey mreifer,
The egg came first, the chicken was too afraid to stick around. Of course this losing is killing me, after investing this much emotion, I die a small death with every error, base running blunder, and missed opportunity. I guess I didn’t make my point clearly enough so let me try again: The smiles and laughter aren’t meant to be an indicator of the end result of games (there’s nothing funny about giving Krispy Kremes to KC fans two nights in a row). It’s an attitude, it’s an outlook, it’s a state of mind. It’s the mentality of no matter how bad things get we’re a family so let’s brush it off and get back at it. I don’t know, maybe I’m just reaching. But it seems like whatever the obstacle, however improbable the odds, we stand a much better chance of succeeding if we can find a way to relax, focus, and play the game of baseball. Cause the last few times I watched the Sox I’ve seen a team playing tight. I’ve seen a team trying not to lose, not a team trying to win. I’ve seen an Ian Thorpe-caliber swimmer alternating between treading water and doggie-paddling. I believe in this team but that doesn’t make a **** bit of difference. They need to believe in themselves and play Soxball. Ultimately everthing else (laughing, smiling, anger) is irrelevant.

I told you bunch of clowns a month ago that this was going to happen. noone believed me. well **** on you all because it is happening. In my opinion Williams and Guillen should both be sent packing as should konerko and “scotty average at best pods”. Contreras is the only pitcher we have in the rotation. carlos lee could really help now…but we traded him for absoulute trash. we couldnt get griffey…or not even dmitri young. konerko “id rather go down with the ship than make a trade” well you are going down you bum! who else thinks rownand was juicing last year…is it just me or was he 100 times better last season?

Let’s see if I get this right..Kenwo, who has never sounded like a true fan, is now saying that the rest of us, who are sticking by this team should essentially go f**k ourselves…WHAT IS THAT? How can you have such bitterness and anger toward fellow fans? I have never seen anyone with more of a broken record on Ozzie or Konerko…I just can’t understand how you see yourself as a fan…there are plenty of other teams if you don’t like the one here…take your pick and have a great season next year. – Dawn

If kenwo hates the team that much right now, then he should stop watching and posting.

Ok, I understand where each of you are coming from. From the negative to the positive to the realists (which I happen to be). I have backed the Sox since as long as I can remember. This has by far, been the most exciting year for me. I wouldn’t consider myself a “die-hard fan” by any means, but I do enjoy watching the games and attending them. I won’t watch any other team than our White Sox, winning or losing. Yes, it would be great to win the Division and hopefully make our way through the playoffs and give all of us, fans, something to take pride in. I mean, think about it, why do we painstakingly route for sports teams anyways….to feel good about something, right. Well, that’s how it is for me anyway. I don’t have a life constantly full of joy, my favorite baseball and football teams give me at least one piece of joy to my day. I don’t think the Sox could ever fail so much that I get down on them like “kenwo” has, but we are all different people. Maybe that’s how he deals with the teams shortcomings as of late, becoming angry and bitter. I personally just hope for the best and have faith in our guys to come through for us and give us a “piece of joy” to hold on to and make us even more proud to be Chicago White Sox fans. That’s all I can say is, I am sure glad I wasn’t born a Chicago Cubs fan. I definately would be angry and bitter all year long. Keep your head up everybody, lets hope for the best and guess what, if we don’t make the playoffs, so what…….we all still go on with our own lives regardless.

Ok..with that being said..if he deals with the recent events by getting down on the team, that’s one thing. But to use harsh profanity towards other fans who DON’T deal with it his way..that’s just ridiculous!!

For all these fans out there that keep complaining and worrying, maybe if everyone would just show up at the ball park and cheer them on, the players may take your comments more seriously. The attendance has been out and out embarrassing and the Sox deserve better from there fans. I know you true Sox fans are out there and I know how hard it is to go to a game knowing that you, the fan, probably will not get playoff tickets because coorporate america will get all of them, but now is the time that we need to stand up and let these guys know that we exist. Get out there and cheer for our team and let Chicago know that Sox Fans are for real and that we do support our team. As of today, they still are in first place in there division, and regardless of a playoff birth or not, they deserve the attention from all of us for giving us one heck of a fun season. Go.go whitesox.
