White Sox Fans: Didn't I Tell You To Panic?

The Minnesota Twins completed their sweep of the Chicago White Sox today, and now the two teams are tied for the wild card, with the New York Yankees close behind. The Twins have been awesome lately, 16-6 in July. The Sox have been horrible, losing 12 of the last 15.

The most depressing part of the game is that the Sox rallied to tie the score in the the fourth, but then gave up 2 runs in the next inning and 2 more in the inning after that. The pitching just dissolved when it needed to bear down. Good teams may lose, but they don't usually lose like that.

It was another bad outing for Buehrle: 5.1 IP, 10 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2 HR. It's his fifth loss and fifth awful start in a row.

As I said: panic now, while you still have the chance.
