June 17 - 19, 2008: Pirates @ White Sox

June 17 - 19, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

June 17: Pirates 5 - White Sox 16

June 18: Pirates 2 - White Sox 8

June 19: Pirates 8 - White Sox 13

What the...??!!

Where did all this offense come from? Where was it during the series with the Rockies? Why did it show up during the series with the Pirates? Will it stay or will it disappear again? I wish I knew an answer to all these questions because it has really been bothering me.

If the White Sox are capable of this kind of offensive explosion, what is preventing them from unleashing it on a regular basis? I sure hope that can be answered soon, as well. It's great writing about the Sox when they have a high scoring series like this, but very frustrating when they don't. It's a yo-yo effect.

The good:
Four home runs and sixteen runs in game one.

Mark Buehrle went eight innings in game two.

The bad:
Nick Masset's throwing error in game one.

Pablo Ozuna was caught stealing in game three.

The ugly:
Alexei Ramirez went 0 for 4 in game two.

Pablo Ozuna's throwing error in game three.

The Sox can beat up on Pittsburgh. Can they beat up on the Cubs at Wrigley? This is certainly good enough momentum going into the crosstown series. Let's hope they don't revert back to the yo-yo effect.
