Are the white sox done?

32 posts in this topic

The sox still scare me and are still capable of going on a tear, just as easy as the twins are of going on a slide

I figured with the sox going into last nights game already knowing that the Tigers and the Twins BOTH lost that it would give them a little spark.

When I saw the 9-0 beat down by the M's I guess I was wrong.

Is it true? both Windy and the Sox have given up?

Pretty sure he locked the gate behind him when he left the Cell and also forgot to bring his 'puter home with him.

They are done. Stick a fork in them. The have had the chance to pick up a game or two here and there but they haven't been able to do it. They are going the wrong way in a hurry.

What makes you happier, the Twins making the playoffs or the White Sox sitting at home in october?

For me one wouldn't be complete without the other but I have to smile when I see the standings and the Sox are 5 1/2 games back. It turns around a bad day in a hurry.

Jermaine Dye left the game today. Hate to see a player get hurt. But it makes the odds for MVP better for Morneau..

CHICAGO -- Chicago White Sox right fielder Jermaine Dye left Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners in the eighth inning after stumbling and falling down as he came out of the batter's box.

Dye's grounder to shortstop became a double play when Juan Uribe was tagged out at third trying to advance from second and then Dye, who couldn't run up the line, was out at first to retire the side in the seventh.

Ryan Sweeney took over for Dye in the top of the eighth.

Looks like they failed to show up again last night. The way things are progressing, there could be an outside shot the Twins get homefield through out. Only 1 game back of both the Tigers and Yankees. If we win out you never know what could happen standings wise.

We need to win out and the kitties lose 2. Pretty tall order but it can be done.

How sweet would a sweep of the Sux be?!?!?!

Pier,

If ever you needed a team like the Sox, now is the time. They cashed in the chips about a week and a half ago. Konerko is out with injury, they shut Buehrle down (though that could work in the Sox favor), and a bunch of nagging injuries have come out. You know if they were still in the hunt those players would be in everyday but they flew the white flag about 10 games ago. I would think a sweep could be possible but it looks like the Twinks are holding Yo-Han for the 1st game of the playoffs. This could backfire if you want the division title. Kitties get KC to finish up though they have been playing tough against all the division leaders this year. The Sox do have a thing for the Twinks and they might just muster up a little "pis* and vinegar" and take a game or two up in the baggie dome. Should be an interesting race to the finish line and then the real dance starts. GO BEARS! Windy

They flew the white flag 10 games ago???? Wow not much of a team if they did that. A real team would never give up, even if they were totally out of it. I blame that on the coach

Muerto Minnow,

You could blame the coach or nagging injuries or the fans or the weather but all that would do is look like excuses. I think the facts speak for themselves. They are something like 2-8 in the last ten games over the time I was reffering to while the Kitties and Twinks were 6-4 or 7-3. The division was there for the taking as was the wild card and for some reason, they didn't close the deal. I would have to say they gave up, why not blame the people most directly responsible, the ones throwing the ball and swinging the bat? Agreed?

Looks like a dead heat down the homestretch, though you are still a game behind, so to speak, with the tie breaker going to the Kitties. Should be a wild weekend. You are getting a team who is playing dead while the Kitties may get a Tiger in their tanks with KC. I would hope that the Sox hatred for the Twinks would boil over and they would show some sign of life, especially since the Twinks are holding out Yo-Han for game one of the playoffs. Windy

Muerto,

They did teach you how to read when you went to school, correct? Why don't you take a minute and re-read my previous post. If you can't do that, have somebody else read it to you. Then get back to me. Oh, by the way, welcome to the thread! YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES!

Muerto,

Just an after thought. Why on God's creation would you blame the coach for a team giving up? When was the last time Ozzie picked up a glove or a bat on the White Sox? What was his on base percentage this year with the White Sox? Thought so! Blame the people who cash the million dollar paychecks and the ones whose fingers are inside the gloves and on the bats and balls! Windy

Yep, never did understand why it was the mgr that gets fired. Same applies to the workplace .....just try to get some underachievers with no motivation to do something they don't want to do when they know they won't lose their job.

The coach in in charge. The coach is in charge. The coach is in charge. He's the one responsable for...........everything. Motivation of the troops is the responsability of the coach. If they give up the fault lies in the coach. The buck stops at the coach.

Ozzie's a quitter except when he cashes his million dollar paycheck. grin.gif

Geno,

You must have seen one too many road crews out in the Land of Lincoln, six guys standing around leaning on shovels with a cup of coffee in their hand while the new guy (usually a college kid) shovels the ashphalt into the hole! Got to love our local govt. Layers upon layers of guys getting paid to do nothing. Windy

High school teams, yes. College teams, maybe. Pros, no way! Look at the NBA, do you really think Phil Jackson was responsible for the Bulls winning 6 championships. Was he that much better of a coach than Doug Collins, no way! He was just there when Michael, Pippen, Grant, Rodman, Paxson and all took off. Coaches in pro sports get way too much of the credit and take way too much of the blame. It's the players, it's the players, it's the players! Windy

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      anybody up for a float from sartell to sauk rapids?   smallies should be great.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
