The White Sox aren't a great team, but they might be a good team. Beating what is certainly a bad team -- the Royals -- by a sound margin will help their case as Gavin Floyd and a home friendly homer binge helped the Sox win 9-5.
In an early turning point, Q's great strength helped him go oppo on a jam shot down the line after AJ had bled in a roller to right to put a man on with one out.. A a couple of Royal gaffes in the 2nd helped the Sox go up 6-0 on a single by Crede, a gift 2B (should have been caught by DeJesus ranging to his left) by Ramirez, and a homer by A.J.
The rest was all academic as Floyd threw strikes and featured a good enough breaking pitch to keep the Royals' AAAA offense down.
As for the struggling white guys, Kong and Thome go 0-7 with a walk. For the Ramirez people: A-Ram continues to hit the ball hard while showing no patience. Like a homeless man's Soriano.
Tonight was a game againt an inferior oponent. The Sox won: but questions remain about the offense going forward.
