Did The Wheels Just Fall Off?

Last ones on the bandwagon are the first ones off.

Week in Review: Defining? Instead of holding serve with a split in Twinkie Town, the Sox blundered their way to losing three of a four-game set. Despite his statistical luck, Bobby Jenks was given the exit row seat on the flight to Seattle.

Week in Preview: The Sox turn to Daniel Hudson to stop the slide as they swing through Seattle for three and Oakland for three more. Kind of like the Circus Trip.

Hawkeroo's Can-O-Corn Watch: "You know was the best player at that? Dwight Evans."

Gordon Beckham Hall of Fame Update: Hits in Sunday's loss to Twins: 4. Reggie Jackson hits in a loss to the Twins in 1968: 1. Advantage: Beckham.

Alumni News You Can Use: Joe Crede's back is supposedly back.

The "H" in "DH" stands for: Help Wanted. Paul Konerko went 2-for-5 as the DH on Sunday so Mark Kotsay could drag his 0-for-4, .231 self onto the field at first.

The Q Factor: Do I sound like I'm on old-time radio? he muses, chuckling at teammates who wonder about the "second job" he often speaks of. He who only lives one life only lives half a life.

The Guillen Meter: 10. Back down to Earth but still in first.

Endorsement No-Brainer: Bobby Jenks for Kleenex. Both are good for blowing.

Cubs Snub: Their hope is falser than ours.

The White Sox Report: Read 'em all.

The Cub Factor: It's funny because it's true.
