Bobby Jenks’ Failure creates Downward Spiral of White Sox Season

If you’re a Chicago White Sox fan, football season may have just started for you this past weekend. If it hasn’t yet, I’m sure you took another step in that direction after last night’s soul-crushing and nausea-inducing last-inning loss. Just in case you didn’t get enough amebic dysentery in baseball form versus Detroit, Tuesday night’s blown save at Target Field made you even queasier about  2010 season.

I said coming into this series that the Sox needed a sweep, just to get back into this thing. That’s because

1.) Justin Mourneau, a former AL MVP is coming back to the first place Minnesota Twins at some point.

2.) The Twins have a vast/mental psychological edge over the White Sox

3.) The Twins have a much easier schedule remaining than the Sox

4.) The Sox have already imploded because of the Domino Theory at work in their bullpen.

Ready to “write off” the Sox in 2010? Or I guess “blog off” the Sox season?
