MLB Slugfest: Game 81 Thoughts

Sox Lose 11-15

-The offesnse flexed its muscles today, unfortunately the pitching didn't follow suit. Every positional player for the Sox, excluding Cintron had a hit. Yes that includes the pinch hitters as well.

-Gooch, Uribe, Thome, and Crede all homered for the Sox, and Mack chipped in with a three-bagger.

-Unfortunately, we also gave up homers to Mr. Sucker-Punch, Pagan, The Strike Out King Neifi Perez, and Carlos Zambrano. That's a despicable list. The Sox pitchers should be embarassed about every one of those homers except for Barrett's. The other people in that list are a bunch of light hitters.

-No matter how bad Buehrle pitches, the Sox somehow stay in the game. They had a legitimate shot to win this game, but then the human gas can came on to pitch and put it out of reach. I think this may be the game that ends Politte's run with the Sox.

-The Sox need a big performance from a pitcher. The pitching has been consistently mediocre to horrible. A studly 1 run, 9 inning performance is in order.

-Once again the Sox blew their chance at a sweep. It seems like every series, they win the first two games and lose the third.

-Big ups of the game to the hitters for not quitting and putting up some runs at the end of the game. I don't think I'll ever be able to count our team out of a game.

Sox Player of the Game

I'm not going to award it for this game. Gooch had a good game with 2 hits, one of which was a homer. Juan drove in four runs, but only had one hit. So since no one distinguished themself as the best player of the game, and it was a loss, I'm not going to award a PoTG.

Sox Record: 53-28

Good call, Jeeves. Nobody should feel good about giving up 15 runs to the Cubs. Hell, even if we'd won I'd have a problem giving out a PotG. Embarrassing!
