"I feel like we just have to keep running our guys out there. I don't think there are some options. You always look to give a guy a day off. We are trying to establish our seven or eight guys. We platoon a little bit in right field. I believe in our guys and they are going to get some pitches and start driving them. Hopefully we have some men on base when we do it."

So much for Jake Peavy's bum shoulder.
White Sox 1, Nationals 0: Natinals once more: the "O" is missing.
J.D. Martin's best just wasn't good enough. Jake Peavy was brilliant.
Where's the offense?
5 losses in a row, 7 under .500, 10 back in the NL East. The Good Ship Riggleman is taking on water...
