Merkin @ CWS:

The White Sox basestealing has been shut down, and not just by the opposing catchers. With his team just 30-for-59 in stolen-base attempts this season, manager Ozzie Guillen made a decision to slow down his baserunners.”

I shut it down a little bit more, because we were giving away outs with no reason,” Guillen said. “I want to see how the team functions without the running game. The running game wasn’t working. It was killing us.”

“we were giving away outs with no reason”. Yes! That’s what I’ve been saying all year. Make that all decade. Let’s hope now that Ozzie sticks by it.

Other White Sox links: J.J. looks at Ozzie Guillen’s lineup changes and his inexplicable insistence on playing Juan Pierre, and Paul Konerko says he’s no Hall of Famer.
