July 18 - 20, 2008: Royals @ White Sox

July 18 - 20, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

July 18: Royals 5 - White Sox 9
July 19: Royals 9 - White Sox 1
July 20: Royals 8 - White Sox 7

Just because the Sox were going back to the eighties, doesn't mean they have to play like the eighties.

The Sox came out strong after the break and then reverted to their old selves. They had a chance to turn it around on Harold Baines day on July 20th, but just couldn't muster enough runs. The bullpen has got to be tweaked... a lot. They are reminding me more of 2007 each passing game. The bleeding must stop.

The good:
Jermaine Dye's performance in Game 1.

The mid-eighties uniforms sported on Harold Baines Day in Game 3.

The bad:
Nick Masset's performance in Game 1.

The White Sox only getting two hits in Game 2.

The ugly:
The White Sox pitching in Game 2.

Jermaine Dye getting hit in the knee in Game 3.

I'm not exactly sure what went wrong in this series. The Sox should have won two out of three games. They were simply overmatched in game 2. Game three was given away. Maybe if Mr. Selfish (Orlando Cabrera) could've managed to get on base, the Sox would've won. At least they got one game out of this.
