We can't even joke about the White Sox playoff hopes anymore. Ozzie has begun filling out lineup cards featuring a bench (instead of an outfield) of Jermaine Dye, Alex Rios and Carlos Quentin. Hawk spent the evening acting as if this game meant the Sox season. To which the Sox responded with a 3-hit barrage, including 1 that left the infield, extending their scoreless inning streak to 18.
The season is officially over; Luke Hochevar serving as coroner, Miguel Olivo as undertaker.
Next year starts tomorrow. Jake Peavy arrived just in time.
