Yesterday, I wrote an article discussing the problems of the White Sox' rotation, and Javier Vazquez went out and threw eight dominant innings against Kansas City.
Nonetheless, I'm sticking by that article—and my prediction that the Twins will win the division.
The White Sox bullpen, however, may be in bigger trouble than the starting rotation, thanks to Scott Linebrink's shoulder and Boone Logan's dramatic loss of effectiveness.
The loss of Linebrink to a shoulder problem initially looked like it would be a quick stint on the disabled list, but his return has been pushed back seemingly every week. First, he was expected to return in early August, then mid-August, and now, an early September return looks to be the target time for Linebrink.
