View Full Version : game thread..royals vs white sox

08-01-2008, 08:22 PM
chicago comes to town for a weekend series the first weekend of august. ken griffey jr. joins the sox for the first time since the trade. nothing fancy here...royals are 1 game over .500 since the all-star break. the sox just had a tough series with the twins. after a sweep against the a's, taking 2 out of 3 would be big for the young royals.

fridays matchup has luke hochevar (6-8) going against javier vazquez (7-9)...luke is 1-1 in his last 3 starts, and vazquez is 0-2

discuss this series here. like i said...nothing fancy...just an attempt at a game thread. go royals!!!

well, griffey jr. got his first hit and first rbi as a white sox player in the top of the second. royals 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 2nd. after 2....chisox 1, royals 0 :down:

Looks like we lost 4-2, Vasquez pitched a good game for them.

Loving the game thread rhensley, if you want inspiration check out the Phillies game threads, they're sick

Why not Stickey this?

Who would? No mods go in here, no TM for here.

I say we request to the mods and wrigs that rhensley should be TM

The Sox will win this I'm thinking. No chance for the Royals.
