4-29-08: Sox 1 - Twins 3

April 29, 2008 - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Wasted nights.

Gavin Floyd turned in another great start that was promptly wasted by the anemic offense. Jim Thome had a double and Joe Crede had a solo home run. Those were the two big hits. Only one of them scored. Guess which one?

Boof Bonser confounded the White Sox hitters. It's not an isolated incident. This happens to the Sox more than it should. Jermaine Dye didn't provide the spark to the lineup in his return. It should have, but I'm not sure what could possibly spark the Sox offense, at this point. Hopefully, something will turn around.

The good:
Joe Crede's home run.

Gavin Floyd's solid start.

The bad:
The team left 5 on base.

A.J. had a throwing error.

The ugly:
Jermaine Dye went 0 for 4 in his return.

Only 1 walk issued by Twins pitching.

I can understand the Sox not adjusting well to someone they have not seen before. The thing is, they have seen Boof Bonser. They have hit Boof in the past. Maybe it's the stigma of facing the Twins that has Sox hitters in a funk. They went through the same thing on the west coast for awhile. Things can only get better from here.
