Boy the Sox are Frustrating to Watch

Greinke is good. Not news, just true and I'm not necessarily talking about today's game in this post. but I'm really starting to get frustrated watching the Sox. I feel like they are never winning. And the main reason for that is because they don't score early in games. In the last 4 games the White Sox have scored 1 run total in the first 5 innings of each of the last 7 games. That's pathetic.

The Sox are 9-1 when they score first. And when you score average .14 runs in the first 5 innings of games odds are you are not scoring first.

I'm also not happy with the fact that time and time again bad pitchers are making the Sox look bad. Again today does not count, but in those same 7 games pitchers named Jakubauskas, Feldman, McCarthy, and Harrison have made the Sox look pathetic.

Tomorrow the Sox face Kyle Davies. First off, this guy is bad (4.85 ERA with a 7 inning shutout appearance included, 16 ER in last 4 starts). Secondly, the Sox have seen him. They were unsuccessful, but they have all seen him. And lastly, his name is not Zack Grienke. So one would expect the Sox to score some runs tomorrow. But who knows.
