They have been hitting the ball hard, they just aren't finding holes. The 9th inning yesterday is a perfect example of this.

Except Zim was a textbook example of arrogance and being a baby. He though he had earned a walk off homer without actualy paying attention to the pitches.

Lannan, how about a Father's day present of keeping the team in the game? #1 guy I want to be on the bright spot list.

Zim always comes up big on holidays. I expect a big game from him today

Trembley's available if Riggleman doesn't hack it. ;)

In the first 35 Games (May 13), Kennedy started 26 times and came in as a sub 7 times.  He was .258 / .343 / .376 at that time. Over the next 14 games (May 28), Kennedy had 5 starts and 8 substitute appearance, and maintained his // line (.258 / .338 / .369). Over the next 20 games, he's appeared 13 times, with only 5 starts, 3 in Cleveland after he had had an extended benching.

Essentially, he became cold once Riggs began his Guzzie v. RHP obsession, not before, and the team turned cold right around the same time.

JCA, I have to take issue with those numbers.  Kennedy was .230/.290/.360 in April, then got very hot the first two weeks in May.  Painting him as a solid .260 hitter until he went in Riggleman's doghouse is rather misleading.

That said, I do agree that the extended bench time is killing him.  What's the joke about Morse?  Something about Riggleman's daughter?  I guess Kennedy must have set them up, because  I can't think of any other reason for Riggs to be snubbing him so hard that doesn't apply equally to Guzman.

Did Johnny Holliday just call Matt Capps the all time leader in saves?

The thing I don't understand, is why Willie keeps getting to pinch hit while Kennedy sits on the bench.

You'd think there'd be a change there eventually.

No qualifiers needed.  All-America Harris has been terrible this season :(

Wow 10 games back that happened quick

N.L. East Standings

Team     W    L    GB    Last Year
Braves    41   28   --      33-36 (+8)
Mets      39   29   1.5     35-33 (+4) 
Phillies    35   31   4.5     36-30 (-1) 
Marlins    32  36    8.5     33-35 (-1) 
Nationals 31  38   10.0    21-48 (+10)
 

It's ridiculous how hot the Braves and Mets have gotten.

I said on paper. I admit that I didn't expect them to be playing this bad, but I surely didn't expect them to go on a 10 game winning streak either

Am I the only person wondering why the White Sox are wearing their black jerseys on a 91 degree day?

Superstition? The only thing I can think of is they have been on a tear lately.

Who didn't see Konerko getting that hit? I expected a HR, actually.

I know, but it's easier to blame Nieves.

Are any of these balls ever going to fall in?  I feel like someone is turning down the gravity when we bat.
