Game 160: Silence and Rage

ESPN highlights available here.

The Score: White Sox 8 – Tigers 0

The Gist: The Tigers didn’t show up to play Friday night, but that didn’t stop the White Sox’ Jake Peavy from dicing them like ripe tomatoes. Three hits for Detroit. Three. And Edwin Jackson was awful.

The View: One of my top-three movies of all time is Midnight Run. In one scene, bounty hunter Robert DeNiro complains of an ulcer. In his custody is Charles Grodin who tells DeNiro that he has an ulcer “because you have two forms of expression: silence and rage.” That’s how I feel about the Tigers…but without the ulcers.

The Quote: “You’re not going to get any help. Don’t expect it. If you want to win the division, you have to win two games.” Jim Leyland via’s Jason Beck on Twitter.

The Stat: 0 – As in 0 for 5 with runners in scoring position.

Magic Number: 2
