The White Sox didn’t play last night – travel to L.A. – but they fell another half game behind the Tigers, who beat the Rays. The good news is that the Indians lost to the Mariners, meaning the Sox are now tied for second place with the Tribe, both 5.5 games back of Detroit.
Today is the ninth day the Sox have been in second place this year. The Good Guys have spent three days in first, 92 days in third, 30 days in fourth, and 10 days in last.
The team sits at .500 once again, having dipped as many as 11 games below the break-even mark (11-22) on May 6. Since then, the Chisox have gone 52-41 to square their record at 63-63.
With Carlos Quentin out, or at least day-to- day, with a shoulder injury, this seems like a perfect time to bring up Dayan Viciedo. Viciedo showed enough last season and in spring training to merit a promotion to the big league club, but has been stuck in Charlotte all year. He’s hitting near .300, with decent on-base and slugging percentages too. I think he could help on the West Coast trip that starts tonight. Go Sox!
