Chicago White Sox

White Sox engery 'still good' despite rough start in Anaheim


Or maybe he was genuinely moved by what he saw from his team in a 7-4 walk-off loss to the Angels late Sunday night, the White Sox’ third defeat in four games of an eventful, dramatic and – for a southern California weekend in April – tense series.


“I love the guts of this club and we played courageously,” La Russa said before the team boarded a plane for Seattle to open a three-game series against the Mariners Monday night.


Four games represents 1/40th of the season, and keeping in mind the Sox started 1-4 last year before finishing 35-25 to make their first postseason since 2008 should discourage alarm.


I don’t think we have to be worried or concerned,” Yoan Moncada said through translator Billy Russo, specifically about defense but undoubtedly having the same answer about the other elements.


With lefties Justus Sheffield and James Paxton starting Monday and Tuesday for the Mariners, the Sox lineup was looking for a jumpstart.


They were 15-0 against lefty starters last year, but took on Seattle without Eloy Jimenez (torn pectoral muscle) and Anderson (hamstring).
