Chicago White Sox Cannot Depend on Offense
"If a baseball team scores more runs than the other team, it will win the ballgame."
-- Captain Obvious
In the White Sox's two victories, they combined to score 23 runs. In its loss today, they only scored one.
Obviously, Chicago is very reliant on scoring runs. It may be premature to judge how a team will fare three games into a regular season, but if the White Sox want to play more than 159 more games this season, the bullpen will need to step up.
Will Ohman, in particular. On opening day, he let the Cleveland Indians get back into striking distance after Chicago went ahead 14-0.
Today, he allowed the Tribe to score three runs in 1.1 innings. With the White Sox offense relatively absent, those runs put the game out of reach.
