Can we just forget about the 12-0 loss the Chicago White Sox suffered on Friday night to the Texas Rangers and just move on?

Yes, let’s do that, because it was just bad, and I already vented last night in my postgame opinion article.

Let’s look forward to Saturday’s game as the White Sox will send Jose Quintana (1-0, 2.37 ERA) to the mound to face-off against Colby Lewis (0-1, 6.75 ERA) in the second game of this series.

One plus headed into this game, as the White Sox have a three-game losing streak, is the bat of Alexei Ramirez. Ramirez is currently on a  franchise-record 17-game hitting streak to start the season, passing Hall of Famer Frank Thomas two games ago.

Ramirez is playing back to how he once used to, and it is good to see him off to such a good (and constant) start this season.

Let’s all hope tonight’s game is much better than Friday, or at least more competitive.
