GameChat – Twins @ White Sox #3, 3:05pm

Reminder that today’s game is on Fox.

So I have noticed something after a few years of putting these chats up..  The White Sox are SERIOUSLY slow with their lineups. It’s always games in Chicago that the lineups don’t come out until the very last minute. Just about every other game, they are out about an hour or so before game time.. never in Chicago. (btw, this trend seems to transcend the management individuals – it’s just what they do here.)  Anyway..

So Pelfrey is back.. let’s see if that goes as well as Liam coming back for a game..

Chi White Sox 1 2 0 0 0 2 0 0 x 5 7 1

Getting shut out thoroughly by the Sox bullpen that way was disappointing.

Somehow, we need to find a way to get Pelf to start the game the way he pitches from the third inning on. If we can do that, he would go much deeper in to games. It’s those slow (figuratively and literally) starts that are frustrating for all concerned, himself included, I’m sure.
