July 21 - 23, 2008: Rangers @ White Sox

July 21 - 23, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

July 21: Rangers 6 - White Sox 1
July 22: Rangers 2 - White Sox 10
July 23: Rangers 8 - White Sox 10

It's getting better all the time.

The Sox managed to take two of three from the Rangers, which is a miracle in itself. The Rangers remind me of the White Sox right now. They have a lot of offense that goes in streaks, but their pitching is sometimes suspect. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Sometimes I wonder if the Sox are trying to get back to the days of Albert Belle and Frank Thomas.

The good:
Carlos Quentin continues to put up fantastic numbers.

Mark Buehrle seems to be getting into a groove again.

The bad:
Nick Masset in Game 2: three hits, one run in one-third of an inning.

Paul Konerko had one hit in each game of the series, but will it be enough to save his season?

The ugly:
The White Sox had two errors in Game 1.

Four errors by the Sox in Game 3!

I think I finally figured it out. It's not the pitching per say, but the errors causing the extra out that's taxing the pitching. These games were ugly, especially game 3, but at least they held on to win the series.
