Final in the series was Royals 4 and White Sox 2. Josh Phegley committed his first professional error so I am hoping that he got that out of his system. Hector had a good outing but the offence was not able to lend any support.  There were some really bright spots along the way but I really think that the looming trade deadline is really bothering the boys. Paul Konerko was quoted as basically saying We KNOW we are SH*T right now. The looming trade deadline is not helping.

OK, enough of my venting and frustrations all. The Cleveland Indians come to The Cell for a four game series. John Danks and Jake Peavy are the opening pitchers for games one and two of the series.

Stay Positive

See you on the field
