Game Seventeen Recap
Only caught parts of the game, so once again, shorter thoughts.
The ball flies in Chicago, if you weren’t aware. It’s a little different than hitting at Safeco. Not a great spot to pitch for a flyball lefty, that’s for sure.
Eight righties in the line-up for the White Sox tonight. In his last two starts, Hyphen has faced one left-handed hitter. He’ll pitch better once he stops getting matched up with these teams whose best hitters all swing from the right side.
When Milton Bradley isn’t in the line-up, this offense is pretty bad. Get healthy, Milton, but just healthy enough to hit, not to play the field.
X-Rays on Jack Wilson’s finger were negative, but they’re still putting it in a splint, which is never good. Don’t expect to see him for a few days. If the M’s aren’t going to put him on the DL, they absolutely have to dump Colome and bring up another infielder. They can’t play the rest of this road trip with Tui as the starting shortstop and no reserve infielder. The inflexibility of the bench is a really big problem.
Sean White, not a good pitcher, again being asked to protect a one read lead. Learn, Wak.
Mark Lowe threw some really crappy pitches to Andruw Jones.
