Building my ChiSox survival kit. Or: The 9th inning may be the death of me.

I think someone needs to point out to the White Sox that games really are only supposed to last 9 innings (and, that 8 and a half is perfectly acceptable when you’re playing at home).

If they’re going to keep doing this – and if I’m going to survive the rest of the season – I’m going to need to arm myself with the essentials: valium, rolaids, red wine, and the television remote.

The game’s not over yet, but with the A’s having a 3 run lead in the top of the 10th, I’m going to hold out on hoping for that miracle this afternoon. Hopefully a day off to clear everyone’s heads (And, also, taking time to remember that just randomly throwing different pitchers at the batting line-up and hoping one will stick probably isn’t going to be an effective long-term survival strategy.) will be just what the doctor ordered.

At least, I certainly hope so.

    My Padres have been going into extra innings a lot already too. It’s really too much, especially when they leave the bases loaded in the 9th AND the 10th innings. Sigh.

    Yikes. For the time being, I think my Cubs can relinquish the title of scariest ninth inning in Chicago. I’m already tired of hearing the radio pundits talking about Jenks – as I’m sure you are… The excitement won’t last the whole season: Thornton, Sale and Santos! are too talented (although I did give up and drop Thornton on my fantasy team… so perhaps I’m a hypocrite).

    Yikes! Change a few key names here and there and I could have posted exactly the same thing about my Angels. Sounds like this weekend’s games could be an interesting series to say the least. 14th inning stretch anyone?
    This is a very simple game…

    I love pitcher’s duels, but I think we need a good old-fashioned blowout this weekend. Nine innings. That’s it.
    Yay, another White Sox blog on MLBlogs! Will be sure to check back :)
