Thoughts From Today/Tonight
"We just need to win some games and all of this will go away," said one White Sox player.
We still believe we can win this thing, but to do that, we need to start playing better and winning games NOW. And our window in which to do that is shrinking fast. But there are too many recent examples, Minnesota last year, Cleveland in 2005, Oakland many times, where talented teams struggle early and then something lights a match. We need a match. And you have to believe it will start tonight. You can’t think five games or 10 games ahead. You have to think day to day.
Let’s get Darin and Scott back to give us some speed in our lineup and then see how we play for a spell.
But the clock is ticking very loudly now.
A thunder and rainstorm before the game had Ozzie Guillen thinking today’s afternoon weather was a lot like Miami.
