Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

White Sox Suck

I had a night class, so this will be a short post.

Cleveland 7, Chicago 5
Cleveland took the first game of this 5-game series behind the clutch hitting of Aaron Boone and Travis Hafner, who combined for 5 hits, 6 RBIs, and 3 runs. The White Sox rode the usual suspects of Paul Konerko and Carl Everett, who I can't believe is still producing on the major-league level. I remember when Everett was playing for Texas. He looked absolutely lost at the plate, and Texas couldn't WAIT to get rid of him. Now he's playing like he was 5 years ago. The White Sox bullpen lost the lead, reminding us all that people like Damaso Marte aren't worldbeaters.

The lead is now down to 2.5 games. 2.5 games. Unbelievable.

Tomorrow's Starters:
Cleveland (Westbrook) vs. Chicago (Buerhle)
This is Chicago's ace. If Cleveland can take this game, it might break what is left of Chicago's spirits.
