That's More Like It

There. That's more like the White Sox we have come to know and love. Last night's 7-1 win in Detroit looked a lot like the formula that won a World Series last year: awesome starting pitching and timely hitting. As simple as can be. Nice way to open up a huge, huge series with the Tigers.

Jon Garland has been superb of late. I'd dare say he's been Cy Young-esque in recent weeks and, hopefully, that continues throughout the second half of the season. The guy has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his last six starts. More, please.

Speaking of second half runs, Javier Vazquez needs to step up. While his 9-4 record looks nice, the 5.07 ERA is downright painful to look at. It's hard to imagine another pitcher this year who has been more fortunate with run support. Here's hoping he begins to repay the favor with a solid start tonight.

Here we go now.
