"Get your popcorn ready" - Terrell Owens


Game One - 8:05 - Ballpark in Arlington - CSN
Gavin - I suck on the road - Floyd (10-4 3.22 ERA)
Luis - Konerko hits at my line - Mendoza (1-3 7.54 ERA)

Scouting Report:
White Sox: Entering the 2008 season, Floyd had a rather inauspicious 8-10 career record with a disastrous 6.30 ERA. Following Saturday's dominant effort against Oakland, Floyd improved to 10-4 and watched his ERA drop to 3.22 in 2008 alone. Yes, it has been a coming-of-age effort for the right-hander. Floyd pitched scoreless baseball for 7 1/3 innings against Oakland, giving up three hits and three walks, while fanning six. Floyd has one career no-decision against the Rangers, working six innings and allowing three runs on six hits, while striking out four and walking two. This start came at the Rangers' home ballpark, as will his final first-half trip to the mound.

Rangers: Mendoza never got comfortable in Monday's 9-6 Rangers loss to the Angels, allowing eight runs in 1 1/3 innings. The rookie right-hander said he felt great in the bullpen, but when he got on the mound, his mechanics and location were off. He allowed three home runs and nine hits. Mendoza is 0-3 with a 6.60 ERA in five starts this season.


Game Two - 7:05 - Ballpark in Arlington - WGN
John - HAHAHAHAHA Rangers - Danks (6-4 2.52 ERA)
Kevin - Morning - Millwood (6-4 4.93 ERA)

Scouting Report:
White Sox: If not for pitching through an amazing eight no-decisions in 18 starts this season, Danks probably would have been a 2008 All-Star. Danks was impressive once again during Sunday's effort against Oakland, allowing two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. The left-hander no-hit the A's through five innings and struck out a career-high nine in the victory. The Texas native and one-time top pick of the Rangers has faced his former team on just one prior occasion. Danks suffered a loss last year in Texas, allowing five runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings, with just two of those runs being earned.

Rangers: Millwood wasn't at his best in Baltimore his last time out, but he was good enough to earn his second road victory of the season. In five innings he allowed five runs, three earned, on nine hits and struck out two. However, the offense and bullpen kept him in line for the victory. Millwood is now 4-1 in eight starts since coming off the disabled list. Millwood will face the White Sox for the first time this season. He's 1-2 against Chicago in seven career starts despite having a 2.15 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and .229 batting average against in 46 innings.



Game Three - 3:05 - Ballpark in Arlington - CSN
Jose - Pablo's life partner - Contreras (7-6 4,21 ERA)
Matt - I'm not a ***** like Marvin - Harrison (1-0 2.57 ERA)

Scouting Report:
White Sox: A no-decision was no doubt fine with Contreras in his last outing, which came on Tuesday against Kansas City. He gave up five runs in six-plus innings and never seemed in control. By the third inning, he had thrown nearly 70 pitches. In two July starts, he has two no-decisions. It's been better than his June, when he went 2-3 with a 6.83 ERA.

Rangers: Harrison's numbers weren't astounding in his Major League debut, but he gave the Rangers just what they needed. Called up from Triple-A Oklahoma to start in place of Eric Hurley, who was placed on the DL with a strained left hamstring, Harrison went seven innings and allowed just two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out one. He faced the minimum in five different innings. It was the longest outing for a Rangers pitcher in his Major League debut since August, 2000. Harrison will try to put together another solid start in his first meeting with the White Sox Sunday.

I'm being a downer and say we only win 1, even though every match-up favors us. Hope I'm wrong.

Also, nothing related to Texas is in my vocabulary, or joke about. So, I couldn't think of a good quote. TO is the **** though. and Arlington is basically in Dallas. So, there ya go.

I have somewhat of a bad feeling about this series. Where always bad on the west coast, but the pitching match ups do favor us in every game so I could see us winning 2. (games 1 and 2) But I could also see us getting swept.

But I'll say we win 2.

Rizzorj
07-11-2008, 07:58 AM
I say we win 1...and since when is Dallas on the west coast? I can also see us winning 2 or 3 as well. Then again, we can lose all 3. LOL

Of course we are....I wasn't really being sarcastic when I said we may win 1 game against two no-name rookies/scrubs and guy with a pulled groin.

I don't think I'll ever have faith in Floyd. He has all the talent in the world, but he's such a headcase.

Mendoza gave up 8 runs in 1 and 1/3 inning last start...LOL. Pathetic.

kingbrentg
07-11-2008, 09:16 PM
Our starting pitching has been pretty rocky lately.

Finally getting to this scrub...I hope

Rizzorj
07-11-2008, 09:18 PM
Yeah...Danks has been the only consistant starter. MB with the exception of the Oakland game has been pretty solid over the last 6 or 7 starts if not more.

Rizzorj
07-11-2008, 09:21 PM
Still plenty of time if we can hold them at 6 or 7 runs and start chipping away.

Rizzorj
07-11-2008, 09:23 PM
Wonderful

kingbrentg
07-11-2008, 09:26 PM
I'm not sure if I see us chipping away and coming back in this one.

kingbrentg
07-11-2008, 09:36 PM
So that's about Konerko's 100th strikeout since he's come back.

kingbrentg
07-11-2008, 09:37 PM
I really liked out lineup better without him. He's been such a black hole this season.

whitesoxfan83

glad hes not going to the all star game, he needs some rest.

Rizzorj
07-11-2008, 10:07 PM
This game sucks...I can't believe we have so much trouble against these no name pitchers that suck. If I was playing the Sox, I'd call up every AAA pitcher possible to start.

redwhitenblue
07-12-2008, 05:37 PM
Wow, Carlos Marmol has gone to **** this last month and a half.
Yeah, he's had 4 awful games now since June 2nd, mostly because whoever is calling pitches (no one really knows who) gets slider happy

Similar problem happens with Marmol and Wuertz, they get sliders called for 90% of the pitches and at that point any hitter can recognize and attack the slider...they have to work in the fastball more to be effective


Somewhat similar to Dotel when he gets breaking ball happy

Don't have to look far either to prove the lefty/righty thing. Thome struggles more against righties, and Crede can't hit left handed pitching this year. When I played baseball (I sound like Hawk)...I couldn't hit lefties at all, and I was a righty.

Very nice win. Thome is looking great lately. Which, I never thought I'd say. PK seemed to change his stance a little bit and didn't let his hands dip that low, which paid dividends. That ballpark is worse then Coors. It's like playing pinball.

Hawk was wrong....on whitesox.com the article says MB, Floyd, Danks, V, then Jose

How did the team play yesterday? Was it another fortunate win like the ones vs. KC or did they genuinly play well?

Amazing play by Alexei to end it I saw.

We stranded a ton of runners early. I think 7 in the first 3 innings. 15 overall. We had a 9-2 lead at one point, until Danks started wearing down a bit late, and Texas staged a comeback in the 9th. A great play by Ramirez and Swish won the game...If that play wasn't made....who knows what would have happened. Paulie and Thome each had good games.

I think Jose is just going through a rough stretch. Early in the year he was our best pitcher, and when he's on, he's as good as it gets. I would like it if we skip his starts at random points during the second half, so he could be fresh for the playoffs.
